A core i9-13900K prototype reached up to 5.8GHz

There are now only a few months left before the debut of Intel's new “Raptor Lake” processors on the market. Among the novelties of these CPUs we find the use of P-Core (Performance Core) based on the new Raptor Cove architecture, while the E-Core (Efficiency Core) will enjoy a greater amount of cache and improved performance. The maximum number of cores available should be 24 (with 32 threads - 8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores), while the TDP should remain the same as the current Alder Lake.

Recently, @Benchleaks published the results obtained in Geekbench 5 from a Core i9-13900K prototype, which sported an impressive boost frequency of nearly 5.8GHz (5.77GHz). This allowed it to score 10% higher than the current i9-12900K in single-threaded workloads and 47% higher in multi-threaded workloads. Surely, as regards the latter figure, doubling the number of E-cores was decisive. Recall that this is still an Engineering Sample, so the final model may offer even higher performance.

In addition to Intel, AMD is also focusing on increasing clock frequencies, which on future Ryzen 7000 series processors, based on the Zen 4 architecture, should reach up to 5.5GHz (and possibly even beyond). Maybe we won't have to wait long before we see chips capable of officially reaching 6GHz, but probably the most skilled overclockers will be able to achieve these frequencies without too many problems.| ); }
