The upcoming flagship CPU lineup from Intel is just around the corner and new benchmarks have made these new 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors even more public. Already we have seen multiple benchmarks of the upcoming flagship Core i9-13900K processor and now get to see how it can perform when overclocked.
As we know, Intel CPUs perform extremely well when overclocked and this 24-core Core i9-13900K also lives up to the expectation. A lot of such leaked tests were excluded, however, a Bilibili/YouTube hardware test channel, “EJ Hardware” latest video does show how this new Intel flagship CPU performs when pushed. This is most probably an ES2 or QS sample and not the actual retail unit but still gives a good idea about the performance.
Tested on MSI Z690 GODLIKE motherboards with DDR5-4800 and RTX 3090 GPU, these are pretty overkill benchmarking hardware specs you can expect. When overclocked to 5.2 GHz both the older Core i9-12900K and Core i9-13900K, perform similarly but there’s a TDP difference of ~269W vs ~259W along with a temperature difference of (86 vs 76°C).
This goes to show that the new Raptor Lake processors could give better performance while consuming lower power and staying cooler compared to Alder Lake.
In both the CPU-Z and Cinebench R23 tests done we see the Core i9-12900K scores 2003 in single-core tests for Cinebench R23 normally without overclocked and when it pushed to 5.2 GHz it gets 2029 points whereas, in the case of the newer Core i9-13900K, it scores 1931 and 2056 respectively, so, clear optimizations are needed still.
Where the upcoming 24-core Core i9-13900K shines is in multi-core benchmarks, as you see in Cinebench R23 it scores up to 35,572 points normally and that’s huge when compared to Core i9-12900K’s 27,343 points. Now, when overclocked to 5.2 GHz, this increases to 37,176 points and for a desktop chip achieving that kind of score is simply incredible.
As we know these new Intel 13th Gen Core series or Raptor Lake will be available from October 20th onwards as the company announces and officially we will be able to see the performance gains along with efficiency improvements.
