The 13th-generation Raptor Lake-based Intel Core i9-13900K has made its Geekbench debut. It scores 2,133 on the single-core test and 23,701 on the multi-core test. The 24-core/32-thread processor can boost as high as 5.7 GHz thanks to Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost.

Although Intel's 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors are several weeks from launch, some of them have begun showing up online on multiple benchmarking platforms and even on the used hardware market. Now, the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-13900K has made its Geekbench debut, and it has posted some questionable numbers. Then again, the listing explicitly states that there are issues with the system's timers, so it might not be fully indicative of the processor's performance.

The Intel Core i9-13900K scores 2,133 and 23,701 in Geekbench's single and multi-core tests, respectively. According to Geekbench's database, its predecessor, the Intel Core i9-12900K, averages at around 2,100 and 21,000 on the same tests. The marginal increase in single-threaded performance isn't surprising, given that both processors use the same Golden Cove performance cores. However, the multi-threaded performance has the scope to be a lot better given that the Core i9-13900K is a 24-core, 32-thread part with eight P cores and sixteen E cores.

While it is far too early to speculate Raptor Lake's performance potential based on one test alone, the above Geekbench listing tacitly confirms that the 13th generation of Intel processors are an incremental upgrade over their predecessors. The Core i9-13900K, in particular, managed to hit the 5.8 GHz mark thanks to Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost technology, a tad shy of the 6.0 GHz figure predicted by earlier leaks.
