Intel’s 13th Gen Core i7-13700K Nearly 2x Faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X: 16 Cores and 5.3GHz Boost [GB5 Leak]

Intel’s upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S processors are looking more and more impressive. Another Geekbench 5 benchmark of the Core i7-13700K has been spotted wherein the sixteen core part scores an incredible 19,811 points (MT). This puts it ahead of every other consumer CPU in the Geekbench database. It’s as much as 97% faster than AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X with a lead of 10% over the Ryzen 9 5950X.

The Core i7-13700K features eight Raptor Cove “P” cores and eight Gracemont “E” cores for a total of sixteen. This particular sample was running at a base clock of 3.39GHz and a boost of 5.3GHz alongside 32GB of DDR5 2593MHz quad-channel memory. (Remember that Geekbench is heavily affected by memory latency and/or bandwidth).

This processor was paired with the ASRock Z690 Steel Legend and (surprisingly) Windows 10 rather than 11. It packs 30MB of L3 cache, 5MB more than its predecessor.

The single-threaded scores are more or less expected. The Raptor Cove core builds on Golden Cove’s lead, extending to nearly 20% over Zen 3. The 13700K cores 2,069 points in the single-core benchmark, over 350 points more than the 5800X’s ~1700. If Zen 4 brings a 10% IPC uplift over its predecessor (plus 5.5GHz boost clocks), then Raphael and Raptor Lake will perform in the same ballpark, at least in single-threaded workloads.
