New Flagship Puts to the Test: i9-13900K vs i9-12900K



The rivalry between Intel and AMD is reigniting. The Red team is making the final adjustments to put the Ryzen 7000 processors produced with the Zen 4 microarchitecture for sale. Intel has come to an end for its new generation chips. Previously, we gathered all the available information on 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors. Now let’s take a closer look at the performance numbers.

Chinese Extreme Player The reviews by the company are based on a Raptor Lake processor, which has now reached the final stage of qualification sample. In other words, the chips are now ready and the final chips will be produced.

The processor, which has power limits of 125W and 250W (MTB), carries 24 cores and 32 threads. You can tell right away that this is a Core i9-13900K with its power limits. According to the CPU-Z screenshots, the frequency speeds are the same as the engineering sample that took the Geekbench test a few days ago: and in the 5.5 GHz to 5.7 GHz range (depending on the boost technology).

Raptor Lake CPU was tested on ASUS ROG Z690 Extreme motherboard with 6400MHz DDR5 memory. The system is also equipped with GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, 1500W power supply and Thermalright AIO Frozen Magic 360 cooling solution.

The reviewer says the 13900K is on average 10% faster in single-core tests than the 12900KF and up to 35% faster in multi-threaded workloads. Results varied from test to test. The 13900K appears to be 46.34% more powerful than its predecessor in multi-core CPU-Z performance tests. In Geekbench 5 tests, the difference was reflected in the results as 22%. On the other hand, there is a difference of 38.38% in Cinebench R23 and 34.86% in Cinebench R20.

Let’s talk about power consumption and cooling. Tested on Intel’s own XTU tool, the 13900K reached 100°C and started throttling despite using 360 AIO coolers. It has also been reported that PL4 (package) power goes up to 420W.
