The first test results of the energy-efficient, 35-watt Core i7-13700T processor appeared on the network, in which the new product was faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X and Core i5-12600K.
The Core i7-13700T is based on the Raptor Lake architecture, has 16 cores (8 P-cores with Hyper Threading + 8 E-cores) and 24 threads. The CPU is equipped with a 30MB shared L3 cache. The base frequency of the chip is 1400MHz, and the maximum is set at 4900MHz. With a TDP of just 35 watts, the above specs look amazing.
During passing the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the Core i7-13700T only reached the 4800MHz mark, and the final result was an impressive 1939 points in a single-threaded test and 11564 in a multi-threaded one:
For comparison, the Ryzen 7 5800X in this benchmark only scores 1670 and 10328 in the single-threaded and multi-threaded tests, respectively. The i5-12600K shows a slightly more confident score of 1856 and 11508 points and is almost on par with the new product. However, taking into account its extremely high power consumption of 125 watts, these figures do not look impressive at all.
The 13th generation Intel Raptor Lake processors will be officially presented very soon – at the end of September, and their release is scheduled for mid-autumn 2022.
Separately, we recall: the new CPUs are compatible with all current motherboards for the LGA 1700 platform, provided that the BIOS is updated to a version that supports Intel Raptor Lake.
