Intel’s 13th gen “Raptor Lake” processors are rumored to offer a healthy performance boost over the 12th gen “Alder Lake” CPUs. For instance, a leaked Geekbench entry showed the Core i9-13900K beating the Core i9-12900KS in single-core and competing with the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X in multi-core performance. VideoCardz has now received pictures depicting the performance of the Core i7-13700K when overclocked from an anonymous source. The images show the chip running the CPU-Z benchmark in two frequency configurations.

According to reports, the Intel Core i7-13700K with overclocking outperforms the Core i9-13900K in single-core performance. The 16-core “Raptor Lake” Intel Core i7-13700K is a forthcoming processor. (Related to Intel) The 16-core “Raptor Lake” Intel Core i7-13700K is a forthcoming processor. (Reference: Intel) According to rumours, the Intel Core i7-13700K is a 16-core processor that offers a significant performance improvement over 12th generation components. We now have a hint about the 13th generation Core i7’s ability to overclock and the accompanying performance boost thanks to an anonymous report sent to VideoCardz.


  • VideoCardz has pointed out that the single-core score posted by the Core i7-13700K while operating at 6 GHz is 10% more than the Core i9-13900K (5.5 GHz on P-cores) and 16% more than the Core i9-12900K (5.2 GHz on P-cores). Finally, Twitter user @esperonslaie has also posted a video showcasing a Core i7-13700K running the CPU-Z benchmark operating at 5.9 GHz. It is interesting to see that the chip, even when overclocked to such a high clock speed, heated up to only 85°C during the test. The video appears to be from the same source as earlier images.

  • In the first CPU-Z test, the 8 E-cores of the Core i7-13700K were disabled and the 8 P-cores were overclocked to 6 GHz. The benchmark returned a single-core score of 983 and a multi-core result of 7814. As a comparison, the Core i9-13900K running a 5.5 GHz frequency on all P-cores managed a single-threaded score of 892. In the second test, after decreasing the frequency of the P-cores on the Core i7-13700K to 5.8 GHz and clocking the E-cores to 3.7 GHz, the CPU lost a little performance and scored 947. However, because the E-cores were enabled this time, the multi-threaded performance numbers shot up to 12896.

UserBenchmark goes to war with AMD as Ryzen 5 7600X takes down Intel Core i9-13900 in single-core speed comparison 07/30/2022 I am Fawad, a fellow tech nerd. As a tech junkie, my relationship with technology goes back to my childhood years. Getting my first Intel Pentium 4 PC was the start of journey that would eventually bring me to Notebookcheck. Finally, I have been writing for tech media since 2018. From small no-name projects to industry leaders, I have worked with a number of tech publications.

It is pertinent to mention that the comparisons are based on leaked scores of the Core i9-13900K and not retail hardware. So, take these numbers with a grain of salt.  The AMD Ryzen 5 6600U offers 6 cores and 12 threads of power-efficient processing performance. (Image source: AMD/Unsplash – edited).
