Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU leaks don’t seem to end and latest benchmarks ExtremePlayer Show us some insane hyper-threading capabilities that simply wipe out Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5950X CPUs.
Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU delivers giant, over 65% multi-threaded performance that boosts over 12900K and 5950X when overclocked
The Intel Core i9-13900K is the flagship Raptor Lake CPU, featuring 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The CPU is configured with a 3.0 GHz base clock, a single-core boost clock of 5.8 GHz (1-2) cores, and an integrated boost clock of 5.5 GHz (all eight cores). The CPU features a built-in 68MB cache and a 125W PL1 rating of up to 250W. The CPU can also draw up to 350 watts of power when using Ultra Performance Mode. Which we detailed here a few hours ago.

The tech outlet rolled out the CPU-z, Cinebench R23, and AIDA64 cache and memory standards across three different chipsets, the Intel Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i5-13600K using different overclock and DIMM configurations. According to the results, the Core i9-13900K processor can achieve an overclock of up to 6.2 GHz across all P-Cores and up to 5.2 GHz across all of its cores. The Intel Core i7-13700K processor can also achieve a frequency of 6.2 GHz on its P-Cores, but the electronic cores can only reach 4.7 GHz. The tests were conducted on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard while the memory overclocking was achieved on the MSI MEG Z690I Unify. The cooling setup included a liquid-cooled AIO.
In terms of performance, the Intel Core i9-13900K with a P-Core clock of 6.2GHz and E-core clock of 4.7GHz scored 1011 points in the single-core and 16627.8 points in the multi-core tests within CPU-z. But with a 6.1 GHz P-Core and a 5.2 GHz E-Core clock, the multi-threading score increased by 18 percent, to 19,550 points. The single-core score saw a slight difference, dropping to 991 but the multi-threaded performance definitely benefited more from the e-core overclocking since the total number of e-cores is higher than the P-cores (8 vs 16).
As for how this performance compares to current chips, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor with 6.1/5.2GHz overclock was 65% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Intel Core i9-12900K processor. This goes off to show how much performance one can achieve with upcoming chipsets with the right cooling setup and motherboard through overclocking.

We also got a better Cinebench R23 score for an Intel Core i9-13900K processor with 5.8GHz P-Core and 4.7GHz E-Core overclock. The results show a 57% performance increase over the Core i9-12900K processor and a 77% improvement over the Ryzen 9 5950X processor.

But that’s not all, Intel Raptor Lake CPUs have also been shown to offer an impressive 7400Mbps memory support on current Z690 motherboards. Support for Core i9-13900K DDR5-7400 and Core i7-13700K / Core i5-13600K provided good support for DDR5-7000 memory while DDR5-6800 is said to be the place to be. There’s also Gear 1 support for DDR5 memory up to DDR4-4256-CL17. In terms of power consumption, the Intel Core i9-13900K drew about 400 watts of power at more than 1.5V while the Core i7-13700K drew about 290W of power at a voltage of more than 1.5V to achieve a similar 6.2GHz P-Core overclock.
Depending on the power numbers required to reach such frequencies, you’ll need the best cooling configuration to keep Raptor Lake in control when overclocking. Intel 13th Generation Desktop CPUs from Raptor Lake Including the flagship Core i9-13900K is is expected It will be launched in October on the Z790 platform. CPUs will go against AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup Which also launches in the fall of 2022.
