According to previous reports, the relevant information of the Core i9-13980HX
mobile processor has been exposed, with 24 cores, 32 threads, and a turbo frequency of up to 5.6GHz. Recently, the Geekbench
database leaked that the next-generation ASUS ROG Strix notebook will be equipped with this processor.
The Geekbench 5.4.6 benchmark shows that the notebook has a model number of ROG Strix G634JZ. The notebook is equipped with 64GB of memory, runs Windows 11 Pro system, and the power mode is high performance. In the Geekbench 5.4.6 test, the single-core score is 1970 points, and the multi-core score is 20826 points. This score is even slightly lower than the score of the Core i9-13900HX we reported before. The single-core score of the Core i9-13900HX is 2039 points and the multi-core score is 20934 points.
It can be seen from the screenshot of the benchmark result that the Core i9-13980HX has a maximum frequency of 5.4GHz during the test. Later, Twitter user @hms1193
pointed out that the score is indeed lower than that of the Core i9-13900HX. The reason is that the processor frequency is low during the test, and the P-Core frequency does not exceed 5.2GHz most of the time.
Such test results are also very understandable, after all, this is likely to be an engineering prototype, not the final retail version. However, combined with the leaked results and the heat generation of the desktop-side Core i9-13900K, notebook manufacturers still need to carefully tune this processor if they want to optimize it.
There is not much difference between Core i9-13980HX and Core i9-13900HX, both are designed with 24 cores and 32 threads, and the L3 cache is 36MB. The P-Core maximum acceleration frequency of the Core i9-13980HX is 5.6GHz, which is 0.2GHz higher than that of the Core i9-13900HX.
