Looking forward: Performance information continues to pour in as we get closer to the release dates of the next generation from Intel and AMD. Both platforms are expected to significantly improve clock speed and instructions per cycle (IPC) over their predecessors. PassMark’s latest single-threaded CPU benchmark seems to support those expectations, with Intel’s 13900K at the top of the charts.
the recently published The single-threaded benchmark score of 4,883 leaves little doubt about the capabilities of Intel’s new flagship. The eight performance cores and 16 efficiency cores of the 24-core i9 processor can attain up to 5.8 GHz thanks to Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB) technology. The new architecture, combined with the i9’s TVB technology, resulted in an increase of over 400 points over the previous single-threaded champion, the i9-12900KS.
Thermal Velocity Boost enables select Intel processors to unlock higher performance when sufficient thermal headroom and additional power is available. The technology debuted several years ago and can push more than 240W at 13900K, driving the two highest performing cores north of 5.8GHz.
The published information confirms previously reported rumors about the performance of the 13900K. Earlier this year, i9-13900K engineering samples were reported to feature all-P core turbo clock speeds of 5.5GHz, with boosts up to 5.8GHz on two loaded cores. The increase represents a significant improvement over the previous generation’s flagship 12900K CPU.
information leaked from ECSM other oneRaichu, discussed changes to Raptor Lake, including a new ring bus design, larger L2 and L3 cache, and improvements to latency and bandwidth. The changes resulted in 13% higher single-core performance and 42% higher multi-core performance in the Cinebench R23 benchmark.
With Raptor Lake launching in late October, fans have less than a month before Intel lifts the data embargoes. We can then give you access to accurate product and performance information rather than unverifiable leaks and speculation.
The launch of the 7000 series is just around the corner on September 27, which means that AMD will have almost a full month to establish a foothold with its new line of CPUs. Can Raptor Lake maintain enough hype and momentum to persuade customers to wait for its release, or is Team Blue at risk of losing a larger share of the desktop CPU market based on its deployment window? Only time and customer activity will tell.
