New information is coming Intel Core i9-13900and it is that although at first it was confused with what an AMD Ryzen 7000 processor would be, the Youri Bubliy (better known as 1usmus, the creator of Hydra Project /Clock Tuner or the RAM Calculator for Ryzen), said it was the Intel processor and would be able to reach Turbo frequencies of no less than 5.45GHzhoping that multiple cores can work at 5.20GHz and all the nuclei in unison reach the 5.00GHz.
That makes more sense, since the Ryzen 7000s would be the company’s first processors. reach the 5.00 GHz barrierbut from there to almost reaching 5.45 GHz are big words.

Remember that the high-end processor, the Intel Core i9-13900Kcould reach 5.80GHz according to the latest rumors, each core being Raptor Cove 300 MHz faster respect to Core i9-12900KS (Golden Cove), and this implies a maximum Turbo frequency of 5.80GHzwhile in the worst case an improvement of 200 MHz is estimated, which would place it in the 5.70GHzwhich isn’t bad compared to the Core i9-13900 either, and that’s really Intel must force the frequencies to the maximum if you want to have a chance regarding AMD Ryzen.
Of course, think of an energy consumption which could be of the order of 300W compared to the current 260W of the Core i9-12900KS, while AMD would jump to 170W in its bid to hit the 5.00GHz barrier. Interestingly, this noticeable improvement in core speed will not only be visible in the performance of high-end processors, and it is that Ian Curess already revealed in February, via his official Twitter account, that the cores Next Generation Intel Atom would be able to exceed 4.50 GHz to provide additional performance in the multi-core section.
With all of these changes, Raptor Lake processors should feature up to 40% improvement in multi-core performanceand it is that even if the cores of low power consumption will be maintained Gracemont (E-Core), the number of them will be doubled from 8 to 16 to help with this effect.
If we talk about single-core performanceit is stated that the improvement of high-performance cores (P-Core) will be up to 15 percentso this seems like a good enough performance improvement considering that the real expected version is the Intel Meteor Lake next year.
