Benchmarks for the Intel Core i5-13500 CPU continue to leak, despite the fact that the chip is already available for purchase at a variety of retail shops across the world. Over the previous few weeks, there has been no shortage of Intel Core i5-13500 CPU benchmarks.
We’ve seen benchmarks before, but the most recent one comes from Alva Jonathan aka Lucky n00b, a well-known overclocker and tech enthusiast. The CPU is already available for purchase in the Indonesian PC market, so Alva had no trouble obtaining it. He did run different tests on the CPU, and the findings are really fascinating.
The Core i5-13500 CPU from Intel will be part of the 13th Generation Non-K CPU lineup, however it will use the Alder Lake C0 die because its cache configuration is similar to that of Raptor Lake CPUs. The Core i5-13500 has six performance cores and eight efficiency cores for a total of 14 cores and twenty threads. That’s the same number of threads as the Intel Core i7-12700K, but with more Performance Cores. The chip also includes 24 MB of L3 cache and 11.5 MB of L2 cache.
Under the 65W PL1 mode, the Intel Core i5-13500 CPU has a maximum 1-core clock speed of 4.8 GHz (P-Core) and a sustained all-core clock speed that ranges between 2.8-2.9 GHz for the P-Cores and 2.9 GHz for the E-Core. This frequency increases to 4.5 GHz across all P-Cores and 3.5 GHz across the E-Cores in maximal PL1 mode.
The Intel Core i5-13500 CPU has a 65W PL1 rating and a maximum PL2 rating of 154W when new.
The CPU can hit up to 130W All-core package power surges during tests, while 65W is sustained in the majority of multi-core tests. Users can also select the Unlimited Power option on specific motherboards, which allows the CPU to use up to 150W+ power in all-core workloads but generates a lot of heat, necessitating the use of a stronger cooler. Alva was using the stock air cooler, so if you want to push the chip this hard, a high-end heatsink or liquid cooling is recommended.
In the Cinebench R23 single-threaded test, the Intel Core i5-13500 achieved 1834 points (PL1 – 65W) and 1885 points (PL1 – Unlimited). The Core i5-13500 scored 17104 points (PL1 – 65W) and 21103 points in multi-threaded (PL1 – Unlimited). While the single-core score does not improve significantly, the multi-threaded score improves by 23% with the limitless power profile.
Even with the original 65W profile, the CPU is comparable to the Core i5-12600K, but with the Unlimited Power profile, the CPU approaches the Core i7-12700K, which is really outstanding for a chip that will cost slightly more than $200 US.
The Intel B760 motherboards and Non-K 13th Gen CPUs were originally reported to be launching at CES 2023 on January 3rd, so stay tuned for further information. The Intel 13th Gen Non-K CPUs will be compatible with B760 and cheaper B660 motherboards, both of which are abundant in the new and user markets, and being available in DDR5 and DDR4 flavours gives Intel a significant advantage over AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs, which will also be available in January.
