Intel aims to continue its rise in the 12th generation Alder Lake family with the 13th generation Raptor Lake series. In truth, the Core i7-13700K performance test results that came out today revealed that it has a big gap not only to Apple and AMD, but also to its predecessors.
Intel Core i7-13700K outperformed its predecessors!
Some test results that emerged last week revealed the potential of Intel’s new Raptor Lake series. Here, the difference between the new i9-13900K (engineering example) and the i9-12900K and i9-12900KF is striking. According to tests, there is an average improvement of up to 38 percent. Of course, it should be noted that this increase in power is due to the performance cores. Otherwise, the difference drops to 2%.
Following the Core i9-13900K yesterday, Geekbench 5 performance test results of the Core i5-13600K appeared. Here, Intel’s flagship mid-range chip showed itself to be far ahead of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Apple M1 Max processors. The chip, which has 14 cores and 20 threads, scored 2012 in single-core and 16 thousand 54 in multi-core. That means a 15+ percent difference compared to the M1 Max.
Some leaks have surfaced today about Intel’s Core i7-13700K processor. According to test results, it is 20 percent faster than the Core i9-12900K. It’s 40 percent faster than its predecessor, the Core i7-12700K. It’s an 84% faster chip than its AMD competitor, the Ryzen 7 5800X.
Of course, when AMD’s 7th generation chips come out, it would be much more logical to make a comparison. However, the Core i7-13700K, which is a suitable entry-level processor, manages to compete with both its predecessors and last year’s best chips.
