The first gaming and synthetic performance benchmarks of the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake 5.5 GHz CPU have been leaked. Extreme Gamer in Bilibili (via HXL).

Intel’s Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake Is 5% Faster Than Core i9-12900K Alder Lake On Average In Leaked Gaming Benchmarks

Tested on an Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU leaked criteria It is a QS instance with 24 cores and 32 threads in a configuration of 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core. The CPU carries a total of 36 MB of L3 cache and 32 MB of L2 cache for a combined 68 MB of “Smart Cache”. It also comes with 125W base (PL1) TDP and around 250W MTP.

This chip runs around 3.0 GHz base and 5.5 GHz boost clocks. previous criteria by the same leaker. The final chip is expected to reach single-core overclocking clocks of up to 5.7-5.8GHz, but that remains to be seen until the final variant hits the market.

In terms of performance, we have more detailed gaming and synthetic benchmarks with the Intel Core i9-13900K (5.5 GHz) and Core i9-12900K (4.9 GHz) running at their stock frequencies on the Z690 platform with 32 GB of DDR5-6400 memory. and a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card. The Core i9-13900K already has a 12.2% clock speed advantage over the Core i9-12900K, so it should be faster by default, even if the architecture is the same. The additional increase comes from the increased cache as it gets more than a 50% bump (68 MB vs. 44 MB).

Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K vs Alder Lake Core i9-12900K Synthetic Benchmarks (via Extreme Player):

Gaming performance was tested in various titles at 2160p, 1440p and 1080p resolutions. Compared to the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU and Core i9-12900K Alder Lake predecessors, the average performance improvement at all three resolutions is about 5-10%. There are only a few cases where the chip shows a big profit. Cache and higher clocks really benefit from the minimum framerate, with around a 25-30% jump in several games like PUBG, Forza Horizon 5, and up to 70-80% in Red Dead Redemption 2.

The same thing happened with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which not only saw an increase in average performance with the added 3D V-Cache, but also slightly increased minimum FPS numbers thanks to the increased cache. Note that, Ryzen 7 5800X3D It offered a larger cache size compared to the Raptor Lake cache (compared to Alder Lake CPUs).

  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 2160p: 3.30% Faster Performance on Average
  • Intel Core i9-13900K vs Core i9-12900K All Res Average – 4.83% Faster

As for the minimum FPS, the breakdown in each resolution is as follows:

  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1080p: 27.93% Faster Minimum FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1440p: 21.83% Faster Minimum FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 2160p: 12.82% Faster Minimum FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K vs Core i9-12900K All Res Min Average: 20.86% Faster

And finally, listed below is the maximum FPS breakdown for each resolution:

  • Intel Core i9-13900K vs Core i9-12900K at 1080p: 6.29% Faster Maximum FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1440p: 4.42% Faster Maximum FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 2160p: 2.58% Faster Max FPS
  • Intel Core i9-13900K vs Core i9-12900K All Res Max Avg: 4.43% Faster

All these results below are compiled by @.Harukaze5719:

Dividing the power consumption figures for each tested resolution, we get the following results for the Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K:

  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1080p: 19.1% Higher energy consumption
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1440p: 19.8% Higher energy consumption
  • Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-12900K at 1440p: 26.2% Higher energy consumption

The Intel Core i9-13900K delivered an average of around 10% faster single-threaded and 35% faster multithreaded performance compared to the Core i9-12900K in previously leaked benchmarks. In general, it seems that the processor will be faster than the Ryzen 9 7950X in workload related tasks, but at the same time it will be equal in gaming benchmarks. But with the release of AMD Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache chips Based on the same Zen 4 core architecture, Intel’s gaming crown later this year will be short-lived if they can catch Zen 4.

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs including the flagship Core i9-13900K is expected It will be released on the Z790 platform in October. CPUs will appear AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup which will begin in the fall of 2022.
