Intel recently introduced the 13th Generation T-series chips, which include the Core i9-13900T with a 35W TDP. The new chip has been tested using Geekbench 5, and it performs admirably given its limited power budget. The Intel Core i9-13900T is a Core i9-13900 series variant with a limited TDP design.
While standard chips have 125W TDP in unlocked mode and 65W TDP in Non-K SKUs, the T-series chip has a 35W TDP. The Unlocked CPU has a power budget of up to 253W, the Non-K has a power budget of up to 219W, and the T-series chip has a power budget of up to 106 Watts, which is less than half that of its higher-end siblings.
The Intel Core i9-13900T retains the same core configuration with 24 cores (8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores) and 32 threads, a base clock of 1.10 GHz, a boost clock of up to 5.30 GHz, and 68 MB of cache (L2+L3).
The CPU is also slightly less expensive at $549.00 USD. The CPU is now tested in the Geekbench 5 benchmark with an ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS WIFI board and 64 GB of DDR5 memory.
The CPU received 2178 points for single-core performance and 17339 points for multi-core performance. For comparison, we used the Intel Core i9-12900K, which scored 1901 points in single-core tests and 17272 points in multi-core tests.
This means that the Intel Core i9-13900T is up to 15% faster in single-core tests and slightly faster in multi-threaded tests, which is quite impressive given that the Core i9-12900K has a higher 125W base TDP (3.58x higher) and a peak TDP rating of 241W.
This demonstrates the enormous efficiency that Intel’s 10nm ESF process node and new hybrid architecture pack, and we will see similar results with the mobility lineup, particularly the 13th Gen HX parts that will ship in enthusiast-grade gaming laptops in the coming months. AMD also unveiled its new 65W Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs, which have demonstrated some impressive efficiency feats on their own with the Zen 4 core architecture.
