Intel Core i5-13500 outperforms AMD Ryzen 7 7700X in Cinebench benchmark leaks
Intel has not released the Core i5-13500 yet, but an engineering sample has already demonstrated superiority over the Ryzen 7 7700X in Cinebench R23. For context, other Raptor Lake desktop processors have been spotted before too, such as the Core i5-13400 and Core i5-13600KF. Currently, Intel is expected to announce Raptor Lake parts next month at CES 2023 in Las Vegas.
In the meantime, a leaker on Bilibili has given an outline of what to expect from the Core i5-13500 and how it differs from its predecessor. Specifically, Intel has built the Core i5-13500 around 6 P cores and 8 E cores for a combined 20 threads. In comparison, the Core i5-12500 made do with just 6 cores, as well as 12 threads. While the difference between the pair is slight in single-core work, the Core i5-13500 should provide significantly better multi-core performance.
On the one hand, the Core i5-13500 posted a single core score of 1,901, roughly 100 points more than the Core i5-12500 but almost the same difference behind the Core i5-13600K and Ryzen 7 7700X. Unsurprisingly, the Core i5-13500 trails its more powerful sibling in multi-core work too, with a 20% gap between the pair. On the other hand, the Core i5-13500’s multi-core score of 19,891 puts it over 800 points beyond the Ryzen 7 7700X and 7,000 points or 53% ahead of its predecessor.
Currently, the Core i5-13500 can operate at 4.9 GHz clock on a single P core or 4.4 GHz with all 6 active. By contrast, the processor’s E cores peak at 3.4 GHz. Ultimately, the results shown below represent a limited look at the Core i5-13500 and the Raptor Lake architecture. As always, we would recommend reserving judgement until independent reviews arrive, particularly with a trio of new 3D-V Cache processors also expected to debut during CES 2023.
