The forthcoming flagship Raptor Lake-S CPU has recently debuted on a major benchmarking platform. Up to three Intel Core i9-13900KS CPU test results have just been made available to the public on Geekbench. This provides some points of comparison.
The new 24-core Central Processing Unit (CPU) for the LGA1700 socket is the i9-13900KS. Since the debut of unlocked 13th Generation Core K-series CPUs, Intel has been hyping this SKU, but the company still needs to give it a name. However, a roadmap and specification presentation was leaked hours ago, revealing that the 13900KS exists and that it would be Intel’s first desktop CPU to achieve 6.0 GHz owing to Thermal Velocity Boost.
The CPU has been tested on Intel’s latest Z790 motherboard, the ASUS ROG Maximus Hero series. This is a top-tier motherboard built to accommodate high-speed DDR5 modules, in this instance, a 32GB DDR5-7200 set. The CPU can reach 5893 MHz, although the average speed is about 5867 MHz (based on data from all three tests). Due to the very low-frequency oscillation, a non-zero y-axis was required to see the deviation.
Performance-wise, it increases to 2319 points for single-core testing and 26774 points for multi-core testing. The CPU performs up to 39% faster in multi-core and is typically 10% faster in single-core than the Core i9-12900KS.
It is currently anticipated that the Core i9-13090KS processor will launch in January next year. Although Intel has yet to announce the debut date or price, this CPU is surely on its way.
