Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake ES CPU Tested, 40% Faster Than Core i5-12600K & Beats The Ryzen 9 5950X In Cinebench

Intel's Upcoming 24 Core Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K Desktop CPU & Arc A770 Desktop Graphics Card Spotted

The latest benchmarks of Intel's mainstream Core i5-13600K 14-Core Raptor Lake Desktop CPU have leaked out and it's a beast.

Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU Beats Its Predecessor By Up To 40%, Faster Than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X In Cinebench

The Intel Core i5-13600K will be part of the 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPU lineup and feature a total of 14 cores which include 6 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove and 8 E-Cores based on current Gracemont cores. That's the same P-Core count as the Intel Core i5-12600K but the E-Core count has been doubled. So we are looking at a 40% core count bump and a 25% thread count bump vs the Alder Lake Core i5-12600K.

The CPU tested here is an ES3 sample but was manually overclocked to reach speeds close to the QS sample. The Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake CPU runs at 5.1 GHz one-core and 4.9 GHz all-core boost clocks while the E-Cores operate at 3.9 GHz. With the QS clock configuration, the chip was boosted to 5.1 GHz for all P-Core clocks and 4.0 GHz for all E-Core clocks. The ES3 sample runs at 173W power at 1.31V and Enthusiast Citizen reports that there's room for improvement as final retail chips can end up with power-optimized around 160W. The CPU peaked at around 78C but it wasn't mentioned what sort of cooling equipment was used.

In terms of performance, the Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU was tested in both Cinebench R23 and CPU-z benchmarks. In CPU-z, the chip scored 830 points in single-core and 10031 points in the multi-core tests. That's up to a 10% improvement in single-core and up to a 40% improvement in multi-core tests versus its predecessor.

So immediately, you will know that the CPU is going to demolish its predecessor in the same benchmark. Considering that this chip will be priced around $250-$300 US, it is going to absolutely knock the socks off AMD's Zen 4 parts given its huge increase in multi-threaded performance and also great single-threaded performance.

Just for comparison, in Cinebench R23, the chip is over twice as fast as the Ryzen 5 5600X which is AMD's current mainstream part that the Core i5-12600K was designed to tackle. AMD would have to hit >2x performance in multi-threaded to beat the Core i5-13600K but that doesn't seem likely considering the recently leaked AMD Ryzen 5 7600X sample still rocks 6 cores and 12 threads. But we can expect AMD to price its Ryzen 5 parts competitively in the Zen 4 generation to make them a suitable opponent to the Raptor Lake mainstream parts.

The same is the case in single-threaded benchmarks where the Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake chip is about 33% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X. With a 8-10% IPC improvement and >15% single-threaded performance increase, it doesn't look like Zen 4 will be able to catch up with Intel but the gaming segment with 3D V-Cache parts may have a slight advantage.

Intel's Raptor Lake CPUs are expected to launch later this year. We also covered the full gaming, synthetic, and workload benchmarks of Intel's flagship Core i9-13900K (ES3) CPU here and here.
