Intel Core i9-13900K Thermals Tested, Power Consumption Up to 350W
Yesterday, we covered an article showing the i9-13900K breaking the 40,000 barrier in Cinebench R23 multi-core testing. Today, another benchmark was conducted where thermal scores and performance are shown together (Finally!).
Two configurations were used in yesterday’s test, namely ‘Limited Power‘ and ‘Unlocked Power‘. While being limited, the i9-13900K came in around 250W while scoring a respectable 35693 points. Breaking the shackles, the i9-13900K consumed upwards of 350W of power eating away Zen3 (40,000 points).
Another test was conducted for thermal performance
The performance is almost comparable to yesterday’s i9-13900K. Now, it will be absolutely boring to just show off the numbers due to the similarity, so we will instead give a performance per watt comparison against various flagships.
These results are rather interesting. The R9 5950X crushes Intel’s best offerings in terms of efficiency, although with Raptor Lake, Intel does seem to come closer. We do not have exact numbers for the R9 7950X, but it seems as if Intel plans to leave no loose ends. These synthetic efficiency benchmarks can change drastically in-game where Intel certainly aims to take shots at AMD with Raptor Lake.
