As noted in the previous leaks, the Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs will consume more power and run hotter than Alder Lake though how they behave in games and what sort of efficiency they have to offer remains to be seen until proper benchmarks come out later this year.

Intel Core i7-13700K 16 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specs

The Intel Core i7-13700K CPU will be the fastest 13th Gen Core i7 chip on offer within the Raptor Lake CPU lineup. The chip features a total of 16 cores and 24 threads. This configuration is made possible with 8 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove architecture and 8 E-Cores based on the Grace Mont core architecture. The CPU comes with 30 MB of L3 cache and 24 MB of L2 cache for a total combined 54 MB cache. The chip was running at a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 5.40 GHz. The all-core boost is rated at 5.3 GHz for the P-Cores while the E-Cores feature a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 4.3 GHz.

  • Core i7-13700K 8+8 (16/24) - 3.4 / 5.3 GHz - 54 MB Cache, 125W (PL1) / 244W (PL2)?
  • Core i7-12700K 8+4 (12/20) - 3.6 / 5.0 GHz, 25 MB Cache, 125W (PL1) / 190W (PL2)

Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specs

The Intel Core i5-13600K features 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 comes with 24 MB of L3 and 20 MB of L2 cache for a combined total of 44 MB cache. Clock speeds are set at 3.5 GHz base, 5.2 GHz boost, and 5.1 GHz all-core boost while the E-Cores operate at 3.5 GHz base & 3.9 GHz boost clocks.

Intel Core i7-13700K 16 Core Raptor Lake CPU Gaming Benchmarks

So coming to the benchmarks, the performance was measured within 10 games. The game list includes CSGO, FFXIV, PUBG, Naraka Bladepoint, Apex Legends, Forza Horizon 5, Monster Hunter Rise, Far Cry 6, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Horizon Zero Dawn. The leaker also benchmarked the chips within various 3DMark benchmarks such as Firestrike and Time Spy.

There are a lot of figures to go through but credits to Harukaze5719 who has done an amazing job compiling those figures in some neat charts which are easier to interpret. The Intel Core i7-13700K Raptor Lake CPU offers:

  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K at 1080p: 6.65% Faster Performance on Average
  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K at 1440p: 5.30% Faster Performance on Average
  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K at 2160p: 4.06% Faster Performance on Average
  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K All Res Avg - 5.33% Faster

As for the minimum FPS, the breakdown at each resolution is as below:

  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K at 1080p: 11.38% Faster Minimum FPS
  • Intel Core i7-13700K vs Core i7-12700K at 1440p: 11.04% Faster Minimum FPS
