Intel recently introduced brand new 13th Gen T-series chips which feature the Core i9-13900T that operates at a 35W TDP. The new chip has been benchmarked within Geekbench 5 and showcases impressive performance given its limited power budget.
Intel's 13th Gen Core i9-13900T 35W CPU Beats The 125W Core i9-12900K In Geekbench 5 Benchmark
Starting with the specifications, the Intel Core i9-13900T is a variation of the Core i9-13900 series that comes with a limited TDP design. While the standard chips boast 125W TDP in the unlocked and 65W TDP on the Non-K SKUs, the T-series chip is limited to a 35W TDP. The Unlocked CPU is rated at up to 253W, the Non-K is rated at up to 219W while the T-series chip is rated at up to 106 Watts which is less than half the power budget of its higher-end siblings.
The Intel Core i9-13900T retains the same core configuration with 24 cores that are made up of 8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores with 32 threads, a base clock of 1.10 GHz, a boost of up to 5.30 GHz & 68 MB of cache (L2+L3). The CPU also comes at a slightly lower price point of $549.00 US. Now the CPU is tested within the Geekbench 5 benchmark using an ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS WIFI board and coupled with 64 GB of DDR5 memory.
The CPU scored 2178 points in the single-core and 17339 points in the multi-core tests. We used the Intel Core i9-12900K for comparison which scores 1901 points in single-core and 17272 points in multi-core tests. This puts the Intel Core i9-13900T up to 15% faster in single-core and slightly faster in multi-threaded tests which is very impressive considering the Core i9-12900K also has a higher 125W base TDP (3.58x higher) and a peak TDP rating of 241W (2.27x higher).
This goes off to show the immense efficiency that Intel's 10nm ESF process node and the new hybrid architecture packs and we will also get to see some similar results with the mobility lineup, especially the 13th Gen HX parts which are going to ship in enthusiast-grade gaming laptops in the coming months. AMD also introduced its brand new 65W Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs which have been showcasing some impressive efficiency feats on their own with the Zen 4 core architecture.
