Intel’s Raptor Lake lineup hit the shelves 1 week ago with the mobile SKUs planned for later this year. Similarly, new benchmarks of the i9-13900HK have surfaced, showing marginal improvements over what we saw last time. Let us remind you that this CPU is the highest end offering from Intel’s Raptor Lake-H series.
The Test Results
Coming again from a Samsung based platform, the i9-13900HK appears to be tested on the same laptop as last time. For some context, this specific test bench featuers 32GB of memory. The i9-13900HK scores 1870 points and 12436 points in the single and multi-core test respectively. This nets it a 2-3% lead in the single-core department and a 5% improvement multi-core wise against the last test.
As shown, the i9-13900HK is now at a much more comfortable spot than last time. However, if we compare it to the 12900HK (via Videocardz), it does lose out by a very small margin. This means that we’re still seeing early samples.
The i9-13900HK from team blue’s Raptor Lake-H lineup ships with 14 cores / 20 threads. This configuration has no increase from Alder Lake’s 12900HK. We expect to see the -HX SKUs with significantly higher core/thread counts. The TDP should be around 45W whereas the max power would be rated at 115W.
Intel may unveil these CPUs sometime before CES 2023. If plans go south, a small delay to CES 2023 is also on the cards, however, the we haven’t heard anything official relating to that yet.
Raptor Lake – starting with our desktop SKUs this fall, followed by our mobile family by end of year. The Raptor Lake family will offer customers significant advantages, including doubledigit performance gains gen-on-gen and socket compatibility with Alder Lake. And in 2023, we will deliver our first disaggregated CPU built on Intel 4 – Meteor Lake – which is showing good health in both our and our customers’ labs.
