The Intel Core i9-13900K is one of the processors most consumers have come to expect. Initial leaks tell us that despite the minor architectural changes at Alder Lake, the new slide will leave all the competition behind. Only the most recent performance results reported in CPU-Z support this hypothesis. Interestingly enough, the chip shows claws even with slower DDR4 memory. But let’s get to work.

In the CPU-Z rating, the early version of the Core i9-13900K outperformed even the flagship Core i9-12900K. Interestingly, the sample tested in the Multi-Core test is even ahead of the Threadripper 24-core / 48-thread 2970WX from the HEDT segment.

This time the Intel Core i9-13900K was tested in games. Compared with Core i9-12900KF, we have higher efficiency and higher power consumption

The Intel Core i9-13900K processor tested is of course a processor in the engineering version, which probably doesn’t run at its highest clock speeds yet. This 24-core chip clocks 4.997GHz for the performance units and 2.993GHz for the efficient cores. However, the single-core score in CPU-Z is 846 points, and in Multi-Core is 13054 points. In the CPU-Z rating, the chip even surpassed the flagship Core i9-12900K. The multi-threaded score is 15% higher than the aforementioned i9-12900KF (11289 points) and at the same time 10% higher than the Ryzen 9 5950X (16R/32W). Also of note is that the Core i9-13900K tested in Multi-Core is 2% ahead of the 24-core/48-thread 2970WX Threadripper from the HEDT segment.

Even more interesting is that it is one of the first tests recorded with the Z690 platform and DDR4-2660 memory. The program tells us that the super clock is 1330MHz, which may be wrong, but it is possible that the very slow units have already been used. Regardless of the memories themselves, it looks like the Raptor Lake series will be a good alternative to last year’s Alder Lake systems. The results of the treatments so far can be considered high enough.
