Core i5-13600K appeared on Geekbench: Performance has surpassed Core i7-12700K

Intel will release the 13th-generation Core processor Raptor Lake at the end of this fall. Although there is still a lot of time before the release, there are already many Raptor Lake test data on major databases, and now the mid-range Core i5-13600K has appeared on Geekbench.

In fact, the data of the Core i9-13900K has been found on Geekbench earlier, and the current Core i5-13600K has two different data sources. One is on an Asus ROG MAXIMUS Z690 EXTREME motherboard with DDR5 memory, while the other is on an ASRock Z690 Steel Legend WiFi 6E motherboard with DDR4 memory.

From the information given by the software, the Core i5-13600K has 14 cores and 20 threads, including 6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores. The P-Core of the CPU on the ASRock motherboard works at 4.3~5.09GHz, while on the Asus motherboard it is 5.05~5.1GHz, which means that the latter may be an overclocked result.

In the Geekbench 5 test, the Core i5-13600K scored 1980 for single thread and 14425 for multithreading when equipped with DDR4, 2012 for a single thread, and 16054 for multithreading when equipped with DDR5.

It can be seen that the single-threaded performance of the Core i5-13600K is 8% faster than the Core i5-12600K, and the multi-threaded performance is 38% faster, even surpassing the Core i7-12700K. The suspected overclocked multi-threaded performance is even close to AMD’s current flagship processor, the Ryzen 9 5950X.
