Intel’s first low-power model from 13th Gen Core has finally made an appearance (Core i7-13700T), and we have the stats. The new model looks promising, and we are excited to share the news with you. The low-power SKU has a base clock of 1.4GHz, which is not much, but it offers a 4.788 GHz boost clock.
T-series don’t excite gamers, but low power systems are enough for a default TDP of 35W. These processors are suitable for small form factor designs, embedded solutions, and other devices that may require multiple cores, but compatible cooling solutions are not a given.
The CPU’s scoring range is 1893-1939 on the Geekbench V5 single-core test and 8925-11564 in multi-core. This puts i7-13700T higher than 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X based on Zen3 architecture. Although the maximum range for Raptor Lake CPU is not known, even if we consider it as 99W, this is far lower than the 105W (142W PPT). In comparison to official i5-12600K data, i7-13700T ends up faster in single-core and almost as fast in multi-core.
The initial launch of Intel Raptor Lake will certainly include K-series only, but these leaks confirm that T-series is also on the cards and being tested. The exact launch date is still unknown, so till then, we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
