Intel Core i5-13600K: Raptor Lake benchmarked by CPU-Z and Cinebench R23

For the first time, the Intel Core i5-13600K with 6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores, and 20 threads appears as a technical example in the CPU-Z and Cinebench R23 benchmarks. The hybrid desktop processor from the Intel Raptor Lake product family has grown significantly, especially in terms of multithread performance.

On the forum of the Chinese video sharing platform bilibili benchmarks of a technical preview of the upcoming Core, i5-13600K has now been published for the first time, suggesting that the successor to the Intel Core i5-12600K (test) has improved performance, both in terms of single core and multi-thread. In the multi-core performance sub-discipline, Raptor Lake makes the biggest leap to the first generation of hybrid processors, also known as Intel Alder Lake.

Intel Core i5-13600K engineering sample in CPU-Z. While the Intel Core i5-13600K is an engineering sample with a clock frequency of up to 5.1 GHz in turbo up to 830 points in the single-core or 10,031 points in the CPU-Z 2.01 multi-thread test achieves the direct predecessor “only” 770 or 7,200 points. CPU-Z 2.01 – Single core (source)

  • Intel Core i5-13600K*: 830 points (+7.8%)
  • Intel Core i5-12600K: 770 points

CPU-Z 2.01 – Single Wire (source)

  • Intel Core i5-13600K*: 10,030 points (+39.3%)
  • Intel Core i5-12600K: 7,200 points

Engineering sample In addition to a 200 MHz higher turbo, the Core i5-13600K benefits from more cores. While the Intel Core i5-12600K is a hybrid 10-core (6P + 4E) with 16 threads, Intel’s new mid-range now uses a total of 14 processor cores (6P + 8E) and 20 threads. This is also clearly noticeable in Cinebench R23.

In the single-core test, however, the pre-series model is beaten by more than 30 percent.

Up to 171 Watts CPU Packet Power

The technical monster ran at a voltage of 1.31 volts and had a maximum power consumption of 171 watts of CPU pack power. The limit for PL1, PL2, and Tau is expected to be slightly higher in the new i5 than in the predecessor due to the higher number of cores.

At the end of the year in a duel with Ryzen 7000

The Core i 13000 series, which will be produced in Intel 7, should compete with Ryzen 7000 based on Zen 4 on socket 1700 and flanked by the new Intel Z790, B760, H760, and H710 chipsets by the end of this year. More about Raptor Lake vs. Zen 4
