Pre-production samples of the upcoming Intel Raptor Lake processors (i5-13600K and i7-13700K) have been tested in a series of games. Although it is possible that the results may change with the final versions of the processors, these tests allow us to see the progress between the Alder Lake generation and the new Raptor Lakes. While the performance gain from the increase in core count has already been seen and measured, for gaming, it is the increase in frequency that is likely to be the key. For example, the upcoming i7-13700K is a 16-core processor with a boost in frequency to 5.4 GHz. In the tests conducted, the 13700K sample went up to 244W, which is about 50W more than 12700K. The i5-13600K has 14 cores (4 more than 12600K), but also a higher clock of about 300 MHz and a higher PL2 level of about 30W. The reference hardware for the tests consisted of two ASRock Z690 Steel Legend motherboards in DDR5 and DDR4 versions. These platforms were equipped with DDR5-6400 and DDR4-3600 memory respectively. The processors used are the i5-13600K and i7-13700K samples which are opposed to the i7-12700KF and i5-12600K. The graphics card used for all the tests is an MSI RTX 3090 Ti GAMING X TRIO. ExtremePlayer’s tests are dense and @harukaze5719 has synthesized it all into a much more readable package.
