The tech outlet has posted CPU-z, Cinebench R23, and AIDA64 cache and reminiscence benchmarks throughout three totally different chips, the Intel Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i5-13600K utilizing numerous overclock configurations and reminiscence DIMMs. As per the outcomes, the Core i9-13900K can obtain as much as a 6.2 GHz overclock throughout all of its P-Cores and as much as a 5.2 GHz overclock throughout all of its E-Cores. The Intel Core i7-13700K can even obtain the 6.2 GHz frequency on its P-Cores however the E-Cores can solely hit as much as 4.7 GHz. The checks had been achieved on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX motherboard whereas the reminiscence overclocks had been achieved on the MSI MEG Z690I Unify. The cooling setup included a liquid-chilled AIO.

Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Overclocked Up To 6.2 GHz, Over 65% Faster Than 12900K & 5950X 1

As for the efficiency benchmarks, the Intel Core i9-13900K with a P-Core clock of 6.2 GHz and E-core clock of 4.7 GHz scored 1011 factors in single-core and 16627.8 factors in multi-core checks inside CPU-z. But with a 6.1 GHz P-Core and 5.2 GHz E-Core clock, the multi-thread rating elevated by 18 p.c, to 19550 factors. The single-core rating noticed a minor distinction, dropping to 991 factors however the multi-threaded efficiency positively benefited extra from the E-core overclock contemplating the whole variety of E-cores is greater than the P-cores (8 vs 16).

As for a way this efficiency compares to present chips, the Intel Core i9-13900K with a 6.1/5.2 GHz overclock was over 65% quicker than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Intel Core i9-12900K. This goes off to point out simply how a lot efficiency one can obtain with the upcoming chips with the fitting cooling setup and motherboard by means of overclocking.
