Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Overclocked Up To 6.2 GHz, Over 65% Faster Than 12900K & 5950X


Intel’s Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU leaks don’t seem to end, and ExtremePlayer’s latest benchmarks show us some insane multi-threading capabilities that simply destroy the Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5950X CPUs.

Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU delivers a whopping and over 65% multi-thread performance boost of over 12900K and 5950X when overclocked

The Intel Core i9-13900K is the flagship Raptor Lake CPU, with 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The CPU is configured at a base clock of 3.0 GHz, a single-core boost clock of 5.8 GHz (1-2) cores, and an all-core boost clock of 5.5 GHz (all 8 P cores). The CPU features 68MB of combined cache and a 125W PL1 rating that goes up to 250W. The CPU can also consume up to 350W of power when using the “Extreme Performance Mode”, which we described here a few hours ago.

The tech outlet has posted CPU-z, Cinebench R23, and AIDA64 cache and memory benchmarks for three different chips, the Intel Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i5-13600K using different overclocking configurations and memory DIMMs. According to the results, the Core i9-13900K can overclock up to 6.2 GHz across all its P cores and up to 5.2 GHz across all its E cores. The Intel Core i7-13700K can also hit the 6.2 GHz frequency on its P-Cores, but the E-Cores can only hit 4.7 GHz. The tests were passed on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard, while the memory overclocking was achieved on the MSI MEG Z690I Unify. The cooling arrangement included a liquid-cooled AIO.

In terms of performance benchmarks, the Intel Core i9-13900K with a P-Core clock of 6.2 GHz and E-core clock of 4.7 GHz scored 1011 points in single-core and 16627.8 points in multi-core tests within CPU-z. But with a 6.1 GHz P-Core and 5.2 GHz E-Core clock, the multi-thread score rose 18 percent to 195050 points. The single-core score saw a slight difference and dropped to 991 points, but the multi-threaded performance definitely benefited more from the E-core overclock as the total number of E-cores is higher than the P-cores (8 vs 16).

As for how this performance compares to existing chips, the Intel Core i9-13900K with an overclock of 6.1/5.2GHz was over 65% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Intel Core i9-12900K. This shows how much performance you can achieve with the upcoming chips with the right cooling configuration and motherboard by overclocking.

We also got an even better Cinebench R23 result for the Intel Core i9-13900K with a 5.8GHz P-Core and 4.7GHz E-Core overclock. The results show a 57% improvement in performance over the Core i9-12900K and a 77% improvement over the Ryzen 9 5950X.

But that’s not all, the Intel Raptor Lake CPUs also deliver great memory support up to 7400 Mbps on existing Z690 motherboards. The Core i9-13900K supported DDR5-7400 and the Core i7-13700K/Core i5-13600K had good support for DDR5-7000 memory, while DDR5-6800 would be the sweet spot. There is also Gear 1 support for DDR5 memory up to DDR4-4256-CL17. In terms of power consumption, the Intel Core i9-13900K consumed about 400W of power at over 1.5V, while the Core i7-13700K consumes about 290W of power at over 1.5V to achieve a comparable Achieve 6.2GHz P-Core overclock.

Judging by the power required to reach such frequencies, you need the best of the best cooling configuration to keep Raptor Lake under control when overclocking. Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake desktop CPUs, including the flagship Core i9-13900K, are expected to launch in October on the Z790 platform. The CPUs will be up against AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup, which will also launch in Fall 2022.
