From Asia we also get the first landmarks of a Intel Core i9-13900Kin the form of a technical sample, in games. To summarize the information for you, the CPU was running at a base/turbo clock of 3.00/5.50GHzvery similar to the 3.20/5.20 GHz of the Core i9-12900K, hoping that in its final version it can touch the 5.80GHz.
Both processors were tested on the same hardware i.e. same motherboard with chipset Intel Z690the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Extreme, with 32 GB of RAM DDR5@6400MHzand a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to avoid any type of bottleneck.
the chosen games for references were Horizon: Zero Dawn, Red Dead Redemption 2, Far Cry 6, Final Fantasy IX, Forza Horizon 5, Monster Hunter: Rise and PUBG.
At 1080p resolution, the Core i9-13900K delivers an average performance boost of 4.46%; at 1440p/2K resolution, the improvement is 7.10%; while at 2160p/4K resolution the improvement is 3.31%.
We see the big improvement in performance at least FPS that a game achieves, being able to see that at 1080p the lowest possible FPS is 27.99% higher compared to Core i9-12900K; at 1440p resolution, these increase by 21.84%; while at 4K resolution the improvement is from 11.65%.
If we speak of the opposite case, knowing Max FPSthey were 5.96% superior on the Core i9-13900K @ 1080p, 4.43% highest at 1440p; Yes 2.71% in 4K resolution.
Now maybe the least interesting thing is to know the energy consumptionand it is that at a resolution of 1080p, 1440p and 2160p, on average, we are talking about an increase in power consumption of a 19.1%, 19.8% Yes 26.2% respectively.
For now this is an engineering sample and this performance will improve, but it is clear that just to play, it might not be worth jumping from Lake Alder to Lake Raptor. Now, if it’s for content creators, you need to consider the 8 additional hearts of low consumption that they integrate.
