Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake processor makes yet another appearance online
Although Intel's 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors are several months away from seeing the light of day, early samples are beginning to show up online. The top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-13900K, in particular, was spotted on the BAPCO Crossmark benchmark database and a few other places. Now, the high-end Raptor Lake part has put through the Ashes of The Singularity benchmark.
Benchleaks spotted a mystery 32-thread processor on the AoTS benchmark database, which is actually the Intel Core i9-13900K. Paired with a GeForce RTX 3090 and 32 GB of RAM, the processor can churn out an average of 159 frames per second at the 1080p "min" preset, more or less on par with the Alder Lake Core i9-12900K. Unfortunately, that figure doesn't shed any light on the Raptor Lake processor's capabilities because Ashes of The Singularity is a fairly lightweight game that doesn't push hardware to its limits.
The Intel Core i9-13900K Ashes of The Singularity listing does, however, tacitly confirm that the processor will pack a total of 24 cores: eight Raptor Cove performance cores and sixteen Gracemont Enhanced efficiency cores. It is far too early to speculate its base and clock speeds, as values recorded by engineering samples don't mean much in the real world.
