The announcement of Intel Raptor Lake processors is getting closer, and more and more details about them appear on the Web: this time, the Core i7-13700KF played with muscles in Geekbench.
The 16-core, 24-thread Core i7-13700KF was tested on a system with an Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Hero motherboard and 32GB DDR5 RAM. The minimum CPU frequency is 3.4 GHz, the maximum is 31952 MHz, but this is obviously a mistake. But the results are not an error, and they look encouraging. In a single-threaded test, the CPU earned 2065 points, in a multi-threaded test – 18,402 points.
Based on these data, the Core i7-13700KF was 6% faster than the current flagship Core i9-12900K in a single-threaded test and 3.2% faster in a multi-threaded test. When compared to the current Core i7-12700K, the performance gap in favor of the new model is even larger: 12% advantage in single-threaded test and 32.5% advantage in multi-threaded.
Comparison with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is also not in favor of the “red” ex-flagship: it is 25% slower in a single-threaded test, and 15% slower in a multi-threaded test. Finally, we can compare the Core i7-13700KF with AMD’s latest flagship – Ryzen 9 7950X, which was recently tested in Geekbench. But here AMD’s 16-core CPU is faster: by 7% in a single-threaded test and by 25% in a multi-threaded one.
