Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU offers the same performance as Core i9-12900K with “unlimited power” of only 80W
With just a few days until launch, we have a new benchmark from Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU which gives the same performance as the Core i9-12900K, but with only 80W.
Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU is as fast as Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU with 80W
In the latest benchmarks it published Citizen enthusiast at Bilibili Forum, we can see how the Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU is tested in Cinebench R23 in different profiles. Results range from stock, unlimited power, and limited power profiles. But before that, let’s briefly recap the specs.
Intel Core i9-13900K 24 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specifications
The Intel Core i9-13900K is the flagship Raptor Lake CPU, featuring 24 cores and 32 threads in 8 P-Core (Raptor Cove) and 16 E-Core (Gracemont V2) configurations. The CPU is configured at a base clock of 3.0 GHz, a single-core boost clock of 5.8 GHz (1-2 cores) and an all-core boost clock of 5.5 GHz (all 8 P-cores). The CPU has 68MB of combined cache and a 125W PL1 rating that goes up to 250W. The CPU can also consume up to 350W of power when using “Unlimited Mode” which we have described in detail here.
- Core i9-13900K 8+16 (24/32) – 3.0 / 5.8 GHz – 66 MB cache, 125 W (PL1) / 253 W (PL2)
- Core i9-12900K 8+8 (16/24) – 3.2 / 5.2 GHz – 30 MB cache, 125 W (PL1) / 241 W (PL2)
In terms of performance, the Intel Core i9-13900K scores 38,431 points at stock and that’s on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X. Using the “Unlimited Power” profile, the score jumps to 40,622 points, an increase of 6%. The leaker also released another benchmark, this time with the CPU running at a fixed 80W power limit, and it scored 27,412 points which is on par with Intel’s Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU.

We also put ratings our AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in stock and power limited to 65W in the comparison chart. AMD Ryzen 9 7950X seems to offer slightly better performance with much lower power. This shows the extremely efficient design that both chips offer, but AMD’s 5nm Zen 4 architecture really shines. Intel’s Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K CPU launches on October 20th or this Thursday for worldwide availability alongside the Z790 platform.
