We keep seeing more Raptor Lake processors, this time it’s the turn of the Intel Core i7-13700Khigh-end processor that sits right in the middle of the company’s high-end processor, the Core i9-13900Kand midrange processor Core i5-13600K.
Contrary to Intel Core i5-13600K that we saw yesterday, here the improvement in performance compared to its predecessor is not so high, and it is that although its basic configuration also increases until it reaches all 16 cores and 24 threadsthese are divided into 8 high performance cores with HyperThreading alongside 8 low-power cores energetic, so gain 4 low power heartsjust like the Core i5, which favors highlighting multi-core performance against the competition.
Back on topic, this Intel Core i7-13700K, in engineering sample form, ran at a base frequency of 3.39GHz and a Turbo of 5.28GHzalthough the core that reached the highest speed touched the 5.40GHz.
As you have seen, with the use of an ASRock Z690 Steel Legend WiFi 6E motherboard and 32 GB of RAM DDR4@3600MHz. This resulted in a unique baseline performance of 2090 dots in the Geekbench 5 benchmark, while multi-core performance was 16542 dots. This results in improved performance 10% and 17%respectively, compared to its predecessor.
Regarding the competition, it also manages to outclass the competition, and it is that the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X delivers performance that moves around the 1856 and 16506 dots in the same mark. Regarding what would be its direct competitor in the current generation of AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800Xoffers improved single-core performance 20.9% and multi-core 54%so it’s a noticeable improvement.
