The latest benchmarks of the 14-core Intel Core i5-13600K desktop processor, the Core i5-13600K, have been leaked online, and it’s a beast.
14-core Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake outperforms its predecessor by 40%, faster than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X in Cinebench
The Intel Core i5-13600K will be part of the 13th Gen Raptor Lake desktop processor line-up and will have a total of 14 cores, including 6 P-cores based on Raptor Cove and 8 E-cores based on current Gracemont cores. This is the same number of P-Cores as the Intel Core i5-12600K, but the number of E-Cores has been doubled. So we’re seeing a 40% increase in core count and a 25% increase in thread count compared to the Alder Lake Core i5-12600K.

The CPU tested here is an ES3 sample, but has been manually overclocked to achieve speeds close to the QS sample. The Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake processor runs at 5.1GHz for single cores and 4.9GHz for all cores, while the E-Cores run at 3.9GHz. With the QS clock configuration, the chip frequency has been increased to 5.1GHz for all P-Core watches and 4.0GHz for all E-Core watches. The ES3 sample runs at 173W at 1.31V, and Enthusiast Citizen says there’s room for improvement as final retail chips could be optimized around 160W. The peak temperature of the CPU was around 78°C, but no mention was made of what kind of cooling hardware was used.

In terms of performance, the 14-core Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake processor was tested in both Cinebench R23 benchmarks and CPU-z benchmarks. In CPU-z, the chip scored 830 points in single-core tests and 10,031 points in multi-core tests. This is an improvement of up to 10% in single-core and up to 40% in multi-core tests compared to its predecessor.

In Cinebench R23, the Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake processor scored 1387 points in single-core and 24420 points in multi-core tests. This performance makes the 14-core Core i5-13600K chip faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16-core Zen 3 processor.
So right away you know that the processor is going to destroy its predecessor in the same test. Given that this chip will cost around $250-$300, it will completely outperform AMD’s Zen 4 parts given its massive increase in multi-threaded performance as well as excellent single-threaded performance.
Just for comparison, in Cinebench R23, the chip is more than twice as fast as the Ryzen 5 5600X, which is AMD’s current mainstay for which the Core i5-12600K was designed. AMD would need to more than double the performance in multi-threaded mode to outperform the Core i5-13600K, but that’s unlikely given that AMD’s recently leaked Ryzen 5 7600X sample still has 6 cores and 12 threads. But we can expect AMD to price its Ryzen 5 components competitively in the Zen 4 generation to make them a suitable opponent for Raptor Lake core components.
The same is true in single-threaded tests, where the Intel Core i5-13600K Raptor Lake chip is about 33% faster than the Ryzen 5 5600X. With an 8-10% improvement in IPC and a >15% increase in single-threaded performance, it doesn’t look like Zen 4 will be able to catch up with Intel, but the gaming segment with 3D V-Cache parts may have a slight advantage.
Intel Raptor Lake processors are expected to arrive later this year. We’ve also covered full gaming, synthetic and production benchmarks of the flagship Intel Core i9-13900K (ES3) processor here and here.
