We already have the first performance test of the Intel Core i9-13900K sold on the black market in China. Don’t forget that this 13th Gen Intel Core Raptor Lake processor is a technical feat, ES1 (Engineering Example 1) with specification Q0D8 to be exact, so does not represent neither the specifications nor the performance of the final version that will arrive on the market. For reference, this is an older version of the CPU, as it is currently on ES3.
In this specific case, the Intel Core i9-13900K ES1 seemed to be running at a Turbo frequency of 4.50GHz, 1.00 GHz less than the Intel Core i9-12900KS or the ES3 version of the Core i9-12900K itself with all high-performance cores is capable. As we have learned, the encapsulation itself already reveals that we will not have access to AVX-512 instructionssomething we will have in the AMD Ryzen 7000.
As you have seen, despite your work at 4.50GHzthis engineering sample offered single-core performance in the benchmark integrating CPU-Z from 611 dotsslightly below the 648 dots which reaches an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in its commercial version. If we talk about multi-core performance, it reaches the 13,014.9 pointswhich allows it to outperform the AMD CPU thanks to its larger core cores (8x P-Core + 16x E-Core with the same 32 threads), which reaches 11,906pointswe then speak of a difference of +9.3% in favor of the Intel processor.
For reference, the 5.50GHz Intel Core i9-13900K ES3 processor is said to hover 880 / 15,000pointsalthough for the moment no image has been shown that supports said performance, since we would be talking about a 36% improvement in performance single core and 26% in multicore performance. A performance improvement that could make it compete with the Ryzen 7000 even if it is an engineering sample.
