Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake ES CPU tested, 40% faster than Core i5-12600K & beats the Ryzen 9 5950X in Cinebench

The latest benchmarks of Intel’s mainstream Core i5-13600K 14-core Raptor Lake desktop CPU have leaked and it’s a beast.

Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU beats its predecessor by up to 40%, faster than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in Cinebench

The Intel Core i5-13600K will be part of the 13th Gen Raptor Lake desktop CPU lineup and will feature a total of 14 cores, including 6 P-Cores based on 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, compared to the Alder Lake Core i5-12600K, we’re looking at a 40% increase in core count and a 25% increase in thread count.

The CPU tested here is an ES3 example, but was manually overclocked to achieve speeds close to the QS example. The Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake CPU runs at 5.1GHz single-core and 4.9GHz all-core boost clock, while the E-Cores clock at 3.9GHz. With the QS clock configuration, the chip has been bumped up to 5.1GHz for all P-Core clocks and 4.0GHz for all E-Core clocks. The ES3 sample runs at 173W of power at 1.31V and Enthusiast Citizen reports that there is room for improvement as the final retail chips may end up with around 160W of power optimization. The CPU reached a maximum temperature of around 78 °C, but there was no mention of what type of cooling equipment was used.

In terms of performance, the Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU has been tested in both Cinebench R23 and CPU-z benchmarks. In CPU-z, the chip scored 830 points in the single-core and 10031 points in the multi-core test. That’s an improvement of up to 10% in single-core tests and an improvement of up to 40% in multi-core tests compared to the predecessor.

In Cinebench R23, the Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake CPU scored 1387 points in the single-core and 24420 points in the multi-core test. This performance makes the Core i5-13600K 14-core chip faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, a 16-core Zen 3 part.

So you’ll know right away that the CPU will demolish its predecessor in the same benchmark. Considering that this chip will cost between $250 and $300, it will absolutely blow the socks off of AMD’s Zen 4 parts given its huge increase in multi-threaded performance and also great single-threaded performance.

Just for comparison, in Cinebench R23 the chip is more than twice as fast as the Ryzen 5 5600X, the current mainstream part from AMD for which the Core i5-12600K was designed. AMD would need to more than double the performance in multi-threading to beat the Core i5-13600K, but that doesn’t seem likely considering the recently leaked AMD Ryzen 5 7600X sample is still rocking 6 cores and 12 threads . But we can expect AMD to price its Ryzen 5 parts competitively in the Zen 4 generation to make them a viable opponent for the mainstream Raptor Lake parts.

Ditto for single-threaded benchmarks, where the Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake chip is about 33% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X. With an 8-10% IPC improvement and a >15% single thread performance increase, it doesn’t look like Zen 4 can catch up to Intel, but the gaming segment with 3D V-Cache parts could have a slight advantage.

Intel’s Raptor Lake CPUs are expected to hit the market later this year. We’ve also covered the full gaming, synthetic, and workload benchmarks of Intel’s flagship Core i9-13900K (ES3) CPU here and here.
