Intel Raptor Lake Core i7-13700HX running in Lenovo IdeaPad 330 spotted on Geekbench, looks to be a rebadged Core i9-12900HX with increased L2 cache

The Core i7-13700HX has made its way to the Geekbench database in what appears to be a Lenovo IdeaPad 330 laptop. However, we only have the OpenCL results at the moment and not the single and multi-core figures of the CPU itself. From the processor specs, it looks like the Core i7-13700HX could very well be a rebadged Core i9-12900HX with larger L2 cache.

Recently, we reported about leaked Geekbench scores for the Core i9-13900HX in the Razer Blade 18. Now, we are getting to see Core i7-13700HX also pay a visit to the popular benchmarking database. 

The said benchmark seems to have been executed on a Lenovo LNVNB161216 device, which corresponds to an IdeaPad 330-15IKB. However, this particular benchmark pertains only to the OpenCL component of the test, wherein it scores 34706 points, and not the Core i7-13700HX's single-core and multi-core scores.

The Core i7-13700HX in this test Lenovo laptop is paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. It is not exactly an outdated GPU — it launched only early this year — but we would normally expect to see some indications of the upcoming Ada mobile SKUs at this point. It looks like Lenovo would be offering this SKU with Ampere parts. It is also possible that Nvidia might let Ampere mobile co-exist with Ada mobile for some time, at least till the next mid-cycle refresh.

Although we do not have actual single and multi-core scores for the Core i7-13700HX yet, all indications from the benchmark point to this being a rebadged Core i9-12900HX. The Core i7-13700HX apparently offers 16 cores and 24 threads, which implies an 8P+8E core configuration.

The processor has a base frequency of 2.1 GHz and a boost of up to 4.97 GHz. The difference mainly seems to be with respect to the cache organization between Alder Lake and Raptor Lake — the latter sporting 2 MB L2 cache per core.
