Raptor Lake CPU results, namely the Core i9-13900K (source @BenchLeaks), have appeared in the Geekbench database, which allow you to compare performance with other models. The magazine also shows a Turbo frequency of 5.7 GHz, which means that Intel is gradually approaching the magic bar of 6 GHz.
In the single-threaded test, the Core i9-13900K was a respectable 10% faster than its predecessor, the Core i9-12900K, and 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X. In the multi-threaded test, the flagship Raptor Lake (of course, if the Core i9-13900KS does not appear) outperformed the Core i9-12900K by about 35%. The reason lies in the doubling of the number of effective cores, which are now 16 instead of 8. The Ryzen 9 5950X processor is slightly slower than the Core i9-12900K, it is noticeably inferior to the Core i9-13900K.
A single core clock of 5.7GHz shows that Intel has been able to squeeze a lot out of the 10nm process technology (Intel 7). However, it is not known what price had to be paid. Enhanced Thermal Velocity Boost (ETVB) technology allows you to set the maximum Turbo frequency at higher temperatures than before. In addition, Intel again increased the Power Limit.
After the release of the Raptor Lake and Raphael (Ryzen 7000) processors from Intel and AMD, we will be able to compare the two new generations with each other. Both are expected in mid-September or a little later.
