Intel introduced new mobile processors, including the Core i5-13500HX, a few days ago. This CPU is now highlighted in the Geekbench database, allowing you to assess its performance. And it’s quite good: 1711 points in a single-threaded test and 11,319 points in a multi-threaded test.
Not only did the Core i5-13500HX outperform the Core i5-12600HX (1700 and 9235 points, respectively), but it also outperformed the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX (1564 and 9863 points, respectively). Of course, with the new AMD Ryzen 7000 mobile processors, the Core i5-13500HX will face much tougher competition, but overall, the result is very good for the Core i5 CPU line.
The Core i5-13500HX processor has 14 cores (with 7 high-performance cores and 8 energy efficient ones). It can run at up to 4.7 GHz and has 20 threads. The TDP is set at 55W by default, but it can be increased if the cooling system allows for more heat dissipation.
The Intel Core i5-13500HX is a 14-core mobile processor that was released in January 2023. It is a Core i5 processor with the Raptor Lake-HX architecture and BGA 1964. Intel Hyper-Threading effectively doubles the core count to 20 threads. The Core i5-13500HX has 24MB of L3 cache and runs at 2.5 GHz by default, with the ability to boost to 4.7 GHz depending on the workload. The Core i5-13500HX is manufactured by Intel on a 10 nm process; the transistor count is unknown. The multiplier is set to Core i5-13500HX, limiting its ability to overclock.
While the Intel Core i5-single-core 13500HX’s performance boost isn’t spectacular, it will almost surely perform better with reliable drivers.
The Core i5-13500HX consumes typical power levels for a modern PC, with a TDP of 55 W. With a dual-channel interface, Intel’s processor supports DDR4 and DDR5 memory. ECC memory is also supported, which is critical for mission-critical systems to avoid data corruption. The Core i5-13500HX communicates with other system components via a PCI-Express Gen 5 connection. This processor includes the integrated graphics solution UHD Graphics 710.
The Core i5-13500HX supports hardware virtualization, which significantly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, allowing guest virtual machines to use host hardware directly. This processor will run programmes that use Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), which will improve performance for calculation-intensive applications. In addition to AVX, Intel includes the newer AVX2 standard, but not AVX-512.
