Intel's i9-13900K can hit 5.8GHz clock speeds and deliver incredible Cinebench scores
New benchmarks for Intel's i9-13900K have leaked online, coming via @OneRaichu on Twitter. These benchmarks showcase incredible performance levels from Intel's latest i9 series processor, and the huge performance gains that are possible if users push past the CPU's power limits.
By default, Intel's i9-13900K appears to deliver CPU clock speeds as high as 5.8 GHz, offering users a single-threaded Cinebench R23 scores of over 2,200. This easily surpasses what is possible with AMD's current-generation Ryzen 5000 series processors, with AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X achieving scores of around 1650 in single-threaded tests.
With 24 cores and 32 threads (8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores), Intel's i9-13900K is a multi-threading monster. Using the CPU's default power limit, the i9-13900K achieved an alleged Cinebench R23 score of 35693 points. In contrast, AMD's current-generation Ryzen 9 5950X achieves scores of around 28500.
When compared to AMD's current-generation products, Intel's i9-13900K delivers a huge performance lead for Intel. That said, AMD's Ryzen 7000 series is expected to launch within the next two months, bringing AMD's CPU performance levels to new heights. That said, AMD will need to deliver huge performance gains to surpass Intel in some benchmarks.
Unlimited Power - 13.8% Performance Gains!
When using an i9-13900K with unlimited power and current settings, users can achieve significant increases in multi-threaded performance at the expense of power draw. Power draw increases in this test by over a third and multi-threaded performance increases by 13.8%.
By increasing the power limits of Intel's Raptor Lake flagship, the single-threaded performance of Intel's Raptor Lake flagship remains unchanged, but the multi-threaded performance of the processor increases significantly. This change likely comes from boosted CPU clock speeds in multi-threaded workloads.
Intel's i9-13900K is shaping up to be an incredibly powerful processor, though it remains to be seen how this processor will compare with AMD's Ryzen 7000 series flagship. All we know is that late 2022 is shaping up to be an incredible time for the CPU market, with both AMD and Intel releasing new processors with highly competitive performance profiles.
