Intel’s flagship Raptor Lake processor (24-core and 32-thread) has scored 2290 points in the single-core Cinebench R23 test and 35693 points in the multi-core test. The CPU’s power consumption reached 254W, with the default power and clock settings. This power consumption reminds us of the Turbo/PL2 power limit for the flagship Core i9-13900K CPU which has been rumored recently.
When the power cap is unlimited for the same CPU, the results don’t show any massive improvement on the single-core test. However, in the multi-core test, there seems to be an improvement of 13.8%, taking the score points to 40616. The improvement comes at a cost though – the power consumption reaches a peak of 345W in the same test. If we make a comparison with the same power settings in the multi-core test, we would find that the i9-13900K beats any of the current flagship models from both Intel and AMD.
ECSM has also tested the same Intel CPU, but they have used different tools. This particular sample was tested on the AIDA64 Stability Test during which the HWiNFO window was recording the behavior of each of the cores. As it turns out, 2 out of the 8 available Raptor Cove cores were able to reach 5.8 GHz during the test. The rest of the cores were performing at 5.5 GHz and the 16 Efficient cores were able to reach 4.3 GHz.
The Raptor Lake CPUs will be announced next month at Intel’s Innovation event which is scheduled for September 28th. The CPUs won’t be available till October 17th though. The results have come out at a pretty decent time; two weeks ahead of the launch. However, we are yet to see any pricing details surface.
