With the launch of Intel’s 13th Generation Core ‘Raptor Lake’ processors looming, we’re learning more about them, and sometimes even getting a sneak peek at their performance numbers on synthetic benchmarks.This time with Intel’s 65W Core. Someone posted benchmark results for the i9-13900 processor Geekbench 5 database (via @BenchLeaks), which is said to have revealed its specifications and performance figures. For now, take the numbers with a pinch of salt.
Intel’s Core i9-13900 packs 8 high-performance Raptor Cove cores with hyper-threading (optimized Golden Cove cores) and 16 energy-efficient processors without simultaneous multithreading that can process up to 32 threads simultaneously. Authentic Raptor Lake silicon with high Gracemont cores. In contrast, Intel’s Core i9-12900 features 8 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores, so it can process up to 24 threads simultaneously.
After all, Intel’s upcoming Core i9-13900 CPU appears to have more energy efficient cores than its processor, the Core i9-12900. This has a big impact on performance on multi-threaded workloads, but it also features significantly higher turbo clocks on performance cores. 5576MHz versus 5081MHzThis represents a noticeable advantage in single-threaded workloads.

With its higher turbo clocks and larger L3 cache, the new 65W Raptor Lake is set to outperform Geekbench 5’s 65W Alder Lake processor single-core integer and single-core floating-point workloads by 17% and 12% respectively. increase. We don’t yet know how this will affect real-world application performance, but according to a Geekbench 5 report, the performance gains are noticeable.
For multithreaded workloads, the new CPU appears to be 9.6% faster for integer and 15% faster for floating point workloads. This is a pretty big advantage, at least for synthetic benchmarks.
