Update: A new entry has been spotted which shows the Intel Core i7-13700K running on the same platform but with the DDR5 variant of ASRock's Z690 Steel Legend and scores much higher in terms of multi-threaded performance. The CPU can be seen running over 5.3 GHz across all cores and delivers a maximum multi-threaded score of 19,811 points which is a 20% uplift versus the DDR4 entry. We also saw a +11% improvement within the DDR5 vs DDR4 benchmarks for the Intel Core i5-13600K.
So with the new benchmark figures, the Intel Core i7-13700K ends up 15% faster than the Core i7-12900K, 20% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 40% faster than the Core i7-12700K, and 92% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X.
Intel Core i7-13700K Raptor Lake CPU With DDR5 Memory:
The CPU was benchmarked on the ASRock Z690 Steel Legend motherboard with 32 GB of DDR4 memory running at 3600 Mbps transfer speeds. In terms of performance, the Intel Core i7-13700K Raptor Lake CPU scored 2090 points in single-core and 16,542 points in the multi-core benchmark tests.
Intel Core i7-13700K Raptor Lake CPU With DDR4 Memory:
Compared to the results from yesterday, the Intel Core i7-13700K is around 5% faster than the Intel Core i5-13600K CPU in single-threaded and 15% faster in multi-threaded benchmarks. Do note that we are using the DDR4 benchmarks as a basis of comparison since the same standard and board were used for testing the 13700K. The DDR5 version of the 13600K produces much better results but still lags slightly behind the 13700K.
The DDR5 benchmark result of the Core i5-13600K appeared to be 2% faster in single-threaded and 11% faster in multi-threaded benchmarks versus the DDR4 benchmarks. With that said, the Core i7-13700K is up to 17% faster than the Core i7-12700K CPU and is also faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. We have to remember that the Ryzen 9 5950X is a 16-core and 32-thread part whereas the Core i7-13700K is a 16-core and 24-thread part.
So at the moment, it looks like Intel's most entry-level K-Series Raptor Lake chip will be on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X while the Core i9 and Core i7 models will be ahead in performance. This is good considering Intel has to compete with Zen 4-powered Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs right around its launch so the extra multi-threaded and single-threaded performance is very much needed to be competitive.
Additional benchmarks of the Core i9-13900K can be seen here and here, you can also check out more Core i5-13600K benchmarks here. The Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs including the flagship Core i9-13900K & Core i5-13600K CPUs is expected to launch in October on the Z790 platform. The CPUs will be going up against AMD's Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup which also launches in Fall 2022.
