Leaked Tests Show Intel 13th Gen Non-K CPUs Are Up to 64% Faster Than 12th Gen CPUs

According to test findings posted by chi11eddog, an Intel CPU upgrade will provide a significant performance gain for desktops using 65W. The leak includes confidential information from a motherboard manufacturer that conducted side-by-side comparisons of the current 12th Gen Core and the upcoming 13th Gen CPUs. It is significant to note that all CPUs were tested on the same motherboard and with the same memory configuration; however, it is still being determined which model was used or whether DDR5 or DDR4 technology was used.

Since just one benchmark was used to test the processors, the results probably do not reflect their true raw gaming performance. However, the modern preferred comparison tool for CPUs is the Cinebench test, particularly the more recent R23 edition. These findings indicate that the Core i9-13900 would outperform the Core i7-7700 by up to 10% in single-core testing and 53% in multi-core testing. The newest model has a 500 MHz faster boost clock, but it also has 8 more Efficient cores, which reveals why multi-core performance has been boosted significantly.

Other CPU models show a 3% to 6% improvement in single-core performance and a 28% to 64% increase in multi-core performance. The highest increase is seen on the i5-13500 non-K CPU, which gets a 64% greater performance increase but the lowest single-core gains. All of these processors have a TDP of 65W by default and are compatible with present and future LGA1700 motherboards. Moreover, they support DDR4 and DDR5 memory, while Ryzen 7000 CPUs do not.

All five CPUs will be available on January 3rd, along with Intel’s new B760 motherboards. This range of Intel CPUs will exert considerable pressure on the AMD Ryzen 7000 series, which is also anticipated to receive an upgrade around the same time.
