Preproduction samples of Intel Core i5-13600K and i7-13700K tested in games

Intel Raptor Lake CPU delivers better minimum framerate than Alder Lake CPU in first gaming test

ExtremePlayer It brings a gaming review of the upcoming 13th generation Intel Core i7 and i5 CPUs.

This isn’t ExtremePlayer’s first Lake Raptor test and certainly not the last. The reviewer has already published test results comprising up to three different engineering samples from Lake Raptor: Core i9-13900 K And the Core i5-13600K / i7-13700K. This time it tests i7 and i5 processors in games.

The 13th Gen Core series will have more efficient (Gracemont) cores, higher clocks and higher PL1/PL2 power levels. Although the higher core count provides a boost in multi-threaded applications, it is the higher clock and maximum TDP that allows the 13th generation to deliver better performance, especially in games.

Intel Core Raptor Lake Series Specifications Rumored Cores/Threads Max Post Clock TDP (PL1/PL2) launch price
(American dollar)
Intel thirteenth generation Core “Raptor Lake”
Core i9-13900 K TBC
Core i7-13700K TBC
Core i5-13600K TBC
Intel 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake”
Core i9-12900K
Core i7-12700K
Core i5-12600K

The i7-13700K is a 16-core CPU that is said to have a boost of up to 5.4GHz. In synthetic tests, the Qualification Sample (QS) boosted up to 244 watts of power, about 50 watts over 12,700 A. The i5-13600K, on ​​the other hand, features 14 cores (4 over 12,600K), but also around 300MHz clock and a higher PL2 of about 30W.

As before, the reviewer uses two motherboards: the ASRock Z690 Steel Legend in the DDR5 and DDR4 variants. These platforms are equipped with DDR5-6400 and DDR4-3600 memory respectively. Moreover, it compares the 13th generation Intel Core processors with their predecessors of the Alder Lake series: i7-12700KF and i5-12600K. Regarding the GPU, the MSI RTX 3090 Ti GAMING X TRIO is used.

Since ExtremePlayer’s charts are very detailed, hahahahahaha He came up with his own schemes, which in our opinion are more readable. Here one can immediately see that the new Raptor Lake CPUs are faster in every resolution, especially FHD and QHD, which are preferred for CPU-related tests. Note that only DDR4 platforms were used for these schemes.

While the average frame rate is only 7-9% at FHD resolution, the minimum frame rates have definitely improved for all resolutions. This is a 7% to 14% improvement depending on accuracy. The same improvement is observed in the minium FPS in 13900 K . test From the same references.

You can find more data by watching the embedded video below or by checking out the original summary charts made by ExtremePlayer himself.
