Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Boosts Up To 5.8 GHz At Stock Beats 64-Core Threadripper 3990X and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Boosts Up To 5.8 GHz At Stock Beats 64-Core Threadripper 3990X and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

Intel’s newest line of Intel i9-13900K launched with 24 Cores and 32 Threads, and the first test of Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Boosts Up To 5.8 GHz At Stock, Beats 64-Core Threadripper 3990X and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

This winning score was determined using Geekbench 5 and Cinebench benchmarks. Both tools are used to evaluate the single-core and multi-core performance of this new processor. This test was carried out by running multiple operations at the same time, simulating real-world work performance.

During the initial tests, the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake 24-Core CPU Boosts 5.8 GHz Frequency and Beats 64-Core AMD Threadripper 3990X. This also tests out that the processor also results in over 50% faster computing than the last year’s Ryzen 9 5950X chip. You can check the Geekbench 5 database for more details and comparisons.

The tested CPU, Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake, has 24-Core 24 cores and 32 threads, which includes 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core for a total of 24 Cores and 32 Threads. This CPU has a total of 68 MB of cache and is blazing fast with a maximum boost frequency of 5.8 GHz, which has a standard limit of 5.5 GHz, allowing it to compete with AMD’s 64-Core Threadripper 3990X and Ryzen 9 5950X.

According to detailed benchmark data, the processor boost is consistent in the vast majority of tests, including Geekbench 5 and Chinebench. To our information, the processor has been tested with an ASRock Z690 Taichi motherboard, which is compatible with DDR5 memory up to 32GB and can provide an unlimited TDP from the respective PSU, which means all tests are performed without power limits.

This demonstrates a performance leap in which the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU outperforms the Zen 2-based AMD 64-Core Threadripper 3990X, and shows a 14% improvement from last gen 12900K with a 30% increase from AMD Ryzen 9 5950X scores. What we recommend you is to wait for the new AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs, which will determine who takes the crown; competing with older generations is a trick.

Last day, we leaked the report on MSI X670 Motherboards and Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs launch date, which shows the new AMD Ryzen 7000 cores, which should be up to 16 Cores and 32 Threads, with a core speed of up to 5.7 GHz and a TDP of 170W to 230W (PPT), and featured 80 MB (+3D V-Cache) in the same silicon, which benefits gamers to do fast gaming tasks.

In comparison, Intel side leaks reveal a massive increase in both performance and core speed with the all-new Core i9-13900K processors. This is Intel’s high-end desktop (HEDT) processor, which has 24 cores and 48 threads and a base frequency of 5.8 GHz (100 MHz faster than AMD), and a TDP of 240W+. This is a bold move in comparison to AMD Ryzen 7000 processors, which have a stock clock speed of 5.7 GHz and a lower core count of 16 Cores and 32 Threads.

It is official, both manufacturers will unleash their new weapons coming soon, and it is up to us to determine which performs better in real-world tests, so we believe it is time to stay focused and see what AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs will provide and how they work in competitions against the Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake i9-13900K CPUs. In terms of frequency, we believe AMD’s boost rates of up to 5.7 GHz are still valid.

The reveal of hidden tests indicates that the upcoming generation will be insanely fast and count more cores, which truly benefits consumers to benefit in real applications. So now we know where the manufacturer is headed, both CPU makers offering some outrageous clock speeds above 5.6 GHz that will be a significant expansion of the single-core and multi-core performance tasks.

When Will Be Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Launch: Intel Raptor Lake Release Date

From leaks mentioned at (hardwaretimes.com), the Intel 13th Generation Core i9-13900K, as well as the Core i7-13700K and 15-13600K Raptor Lake-S CPUs, will be available on October 17, 2022. However, the non-K chips will be set for CES 2023 event, which is a bit late. This means Intel’s top-of-the-line chips will be released soon after the AMD event, according to MSI’s claim that AMD will release the new Zen4-based 7000 CPUs next month on September 15th, which will be quite interesting.

We learned from ECSM Officials on Chinese Baidu forums that Intel’s flagship K series chips will be released on October 17th during the Intel Innovation 2022 event. This means that we will finally see what is at stake with the Core i9-13900K, i7-13700K, and i5-13600K respective candidates from Intel as the AMD Zen 4 7000 CPUs are set to be released on September 15. This makes an interesting impression to see both offerings and evaluate our own.

Furthermore, Intel has announced that non-K offerings, will be unveiled next year during Intel’s CES 2023 keynote, possibly alongside the Raptor Lake-P lineup, which is a major disappointment in my opinion. However, with the Raptor Lake release event on October 17, we’ll also see the supported H670 and B760 motherboards, followed by a month.
