Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900, The engineering sample beats Alder Lake and AMD Zen 3 despite the low frequency
SiSoftware has published the results of testing an engineering sample of the Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900 processor. After several iterations of the benchmarks, the SiSoft database shows Raptor Lake delivering a significant performance per clock (IPC) boost over Alder Lake.
The tested Core i9-13900 contains 8 Raptor Cove performance cores and 16 energy-efficient cores. The engineering sample ran at 3.7 GHz, but it overtook the Ryzen 9 5900X and Core i9-12900 in several tests at once.
Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900 Performance
In the ALU/FPU performance benchmarks, the Raptor Lake family provided up to a 50% performance boost at a lower operating frequency. It should be understood that commercial processor samples will operate at much higher frequencies – above 5 GHz. It turns out that the generation of Raptor Lake can bring a significant jump in gaming performance.
As with Alder Lake, the Raptor Lake generation will not support the AVX-512 instructions that will be available from AMD “Raphael” – this can significantly affect the performance of applications with virtualization. There is not much time left before the release of new Intel and AMD processors, so relatively soon we will be able to assess how correct the first tests were.
