New benchmarks for the Intel Core i5-13600K and Intel Core i7-13700K processor appeared on the Internet. The tests were conducted in direct comparison to pre-series models and are intended to provide a forward-looking view of the improved gaming performance of CPUs.
In a direct comparison of the Core i5-12600K with the not-yet-released Core i5-13600K as an engineering sample, all games and resolutions show a small advantage of the new CPU generation. The processors were tested alongside the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in the test, and they were also tested with the same RAM configuration for better comparability. ASRock Z690 Steel Legend was used as the main board. In a similar configuration, the Intel Core i7-13700K was also tested in comparison with the Intel Core i7-12700K.
Tests show that the average frame rate increases by about 10 to 14 percent with FullHD resolution. The feature is a little different with a higher resolution, but it’s no longer quite as powerful.
The performance advantage is achieved by partially increased maximum clock rates of up to 300MHz per core, likewise the increased number of efficiency cores should not provide a greater performance advantage, at least in most PC games. As usual, pre-production CPU dates and versions should be taken with a pinch of salt.
