Benchmarks for the Intel Core i9-13900KS Raptor Lake CPU have leaked, and it is up to 15% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X


The flagship Raptor Lake CPU will be the Intel Core i9-13900KS, which will have 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The 13900KS CPU has a ‘Thermal Velocity Boost’ frequency of up to 6 GHz, making it the first chip to do so out of the box. The CPU has a ‘Turbo Boost Max’ frequency of up to 5.8 GHz, while the P-Cores have a standard turbo frequency of up to 5.4 GHz and the E-Cores have a turbo frequency of up to 4.3 GHz.

  • Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) – 3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66 MB Cache, 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2)+
  • Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 / 5.5 GHz – 30 MB Cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)

The CPU will have 68 MB of combined cache and a 150W PL1 rating that can be increased to 253W or even higher using the extreme power profile modes.

In terms of single-threaded performance, the Intel Core i9-13900KS CPU outperforms the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X by 15% and the Core i9-13900K by 5%. In multi-threaded tests, the CPU performs 8% better than the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and 3% better than the Core i9-13900K. This is not a significant improvement over the Core i9-13900K, but the gold silicon will make it an appealing CPU for extreme overclockers and enthusiasts.

The Core i9-13900KS, on the other hand, will cost a premium of $100 to $200 US over the Core i9-13900K while consuming significantly more power. However, because of this, the chip will have a limited production run and will not be available in the same quantities as standard Core i9-13900K CPUs. The CPU is set to be released on January 12th of next year.
