Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K makes swift meal out of Core i9-12900K, Ryzen 9 5950X, and Ryzen 7 5800X in leaked Geekbench and Cinebench R23 benchmarks
We are getting closer to the launch of Intel's upcoming 13th gen Raptor Lake processors, and benchmarks are steadily making their way to the web. The flagship Core i9-13900K is not new to Geekbench, having reared its head a few times already. Now, we get to see another couple of runs of the Intel 13th gen flagship processor on the benchmarking site.
Both these runs seem to have been performed on an ASRock Z690 Taichi-based system with 32 GB of RAM, most likely of the DDR5 variety. The benchmark shows the Core i9-13900K as having a base clock of 3 GHz and a boost of up to 5.7 GHz and 5.5 GHz, respectively in corresponding runs. This is interesting as AMD Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 CPUs are also expected to hit the 5.7 GHz boost mark, particularly the 16-core 32-thread Ryzen 7 7950X.
In the first of these Geekbench runs, the Core i9-13900K scores a single-core core of 2,314 points and a multi-core score of 26,464 points. This single-core performance is about 15% faster than an average Core i9-12900K, 40% faster than an average Ryzen 9 5950X, and 37.4% faster than an average Ryzen 7 5800X.
The multi-core performance is even more impressive — 48.8% faster than the average Core i9-12900K, 62.8% faster than an average Ryzen 9 5950X, and a whopping 146.7% faster than an average Ryzen 7 5800X.
There is also another entry for this Core i9-13900K with about 3-4% slower performance (2,212 points in single-core and 25,497 points in multi-core). That being said, digging deeper into the benchmark entry reveals that the Core i9-13900K is able to maintain a consistent 5.7 GHz boost.
Impressive performance in Cinebench too
The Core i9-13900K's home run spree does not end with Geekbench alone. Well-known leaker @TUM_APISAK has unearthed a Cinebench R23 screenshot that once again highlights the upcoming Intel flagship's performance leads. In Cinebench R23, the Core i9-13900K scores 2,277 points in single-core and 39,086 points in the multi-core component on the benchmark.
This makes the single-core score about 13% faster than an average Core i9-12900K, 41% faster than an average Ryzen 9 5950X, and 44.7% faster than an average Ryzen 7 5800X. The multi-core performance is about 49.6% higher than an average Core i9-12900K, 50.2% faster than an average Ryzen 9 5950X, and shows a massive 161% increase over an average Ryzen 7 5800X.
Intel is expected to announce the 13th gen Raptor Lake family during the company's Innovation Event on September 28 with expected launch on October 17. This will make them about a month late to the party given that AMD is all set to unveil the Ryzen 7000 series on August 29th followed by wide availability on September 15.
