Alleged 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K Review Details Leaks

New details allegedly belonging to Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K have emerged online, and it’s not just any run-of-the-mill rumour. In fact, the new information comes in the form of a review of sorts.

The review of the 13900K, which was done via collaboration between Twitter hardware enthusiast, Raichu (@OneRaichu), and ECSM_Official, gives us a glimpse of the CPU’s prowess, along with the new hardware that it is expected to ship out with. This includes a new Z790 motherboard, which is expected to launch simultaneously with Raptor Lakes CPUs. Interestingly, the performance metrics generated from that combination were seemingly still under NDA, and the results posted online was reportedly obtained with the use of the older Z690 motherboard.

The post has since been removed from the China-based forum, BiliBili, but as a point of comparison, the 13900K was tested and compared to a 12th generation Core i9-12900KF, which is the variant without an integrated GPU. Other specifications of the test bed reportedly include an NZXT Kraken X73 AIO cooler, while the motherboard in question was an ASRock Z690 Taichi Razer Edition.

The 13900K is set to be the flagship CPU of Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake series. The CPU is capable of running at a boost clock of 5.8GHz on two P-Cores via Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), while the remaining P-Cores are capable of running at 5.5GHz. It’s a similar performance setup as the 12900KS that we reviewed earlier this year, albeit at lower clockspeeds.

What sets the 13900K, and other Raptor Lake CPUs, is the increased core count in each processor, specifically with the E-Cores. In this case, the 13900K’s E-Cores are double that of the 12900K, at 16 E-Cores versus the eight that Alder Lake’s top-tier CPUs housed.

Getting into its performance, the Cinebench R23 shows that the 13900K and its P-Cores – made from Intel’s new Raptor Cove chips – is approximately 13% faster than the 12900K, while its E-Cores also show an improvement of 14% despite being unchanged.On a related note, ECSM also claims that the 13900K is capable of breaking past the 40000 point barrier on Cinebench R23’s multi-CPU test, although they don’t actually show any proof of this feat being achieved. Lastly, both Raichu and ECSM also concluded that the 13900K running on DDR5 RAM generates up to 10% more frames, compared to the same CPU running on the older and slower DDR4 RAM. In CS:GO, that’s a difference of around 42 fps on average, and at Full HD resolution.

Intel is expected to properly announced its 13th generation Raptor Lake lineup on 27 September, which is the same day that AMD’s own Ryzen 7000 Series will be available for purchase.
