Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors are looking more and more impressive. The latest benchmarks from Extreme Player (Bilibili) feature a Core i9-13900KF running at an all-core boost clock of 6.2GHz @ (P-cores) and 5.2GHz (E-cores). The Cinebench R23 clocks are a smidge lower at 5.8GHz and 4.7GHz, respectively. And the result is some incredible single and multi-threaded scores:
The overclocked Core i9-13900KF nets an impressive 42,790 points in the multi-threaded and 2,263 points in the single-threaded test. We’re looking at a generation-over-generation gain of over 50% over both the 12th Gen Alder Lake and AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processors. The additional E-cores give the Core i9-12900K and the Ryzen 9 5950X a run for their money, making existing flagships look weak all over. The deltas are slimmer in the single-threaded segment, but still impressive considering that it’s mostly the result of a clock bump.
In CPU-Z, the Core i9-13900K is at least 60% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X in both the single and multi-threaded benchmarks. It’s a much closer call with the Core i9-12900K where the Raptor Lake flagship leads by “just” 20% in the single-core benchmark but an imposing 70% in the multi-core test.
Overall, Rocket Lake is looking to be a solid upgrade over Alder Lake with multi-threaded gains exceeding 50% and single-threaded boosts of over 10% in select workloads.
