Intel’s 13th Gen Core i9-13900K OC as Much as 40% Faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in Cinebench R23 [Leak]

Yet another set of benchmarks of Intel’s upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S flagship has surfaced. This time the CPU was overclocked to 6GHz (1-2 core) and the all-core P-core boost increased to 5.5GHz. The E-cores were all running at 4.3GHz. This is an increase of 500MHz in the single-core boost clock which is supposed to top out at 5.5GHz. Nevertheless, the 13900K produces truly impressive results.

Cinebench R23 recorded a score of 39,365 points, leading the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X by a lofty 37% and its predecessor by almost 45%. We’re looking at Ryzen Threadripper levels of performance, easily beating the Zen and Zen 2 designs by a wide margin. The Threadripper 3960X, a 24-core part with 48 threads is 11% slower than the 13900K in the multi-threaded benchmark.

The CPU-Z benchmark paints a similar picture with the single-core and multi-core scores pegged at 879 and 16,605 points, respectively. Once again, we’re looking at a 40% uplift over the Ryzen 9 5950X and a 40+% gain over the Core i9-12900K in multi-threaded workloads.

It’s important to remember that the Core i9-13900K is rumored to have a PL2 power limit of 252W (according to Igor Wallossek). 350W. With the CPU core running at 1.45v, we’re probably looking at a power consumption of over 400W, maybe even 500W. You’ll definitely need a water block to cool this thing.

Intel plans to launch its 13th Gen Raptor Lake-S processors sometime in the last quarter of 2022, a couple of months after the AMD Raphael launch. In case you missed it, the Ryzen 7000 CPUs should offer superior single-threaded and gaming performance but mild to moderate multi-threaded capabilities due to the core counts still being limited to 16.
