24-core Intel Core i9-13900K CPU spotted on CPU-Z Validator website with slow DDR4 memory


Intel Core i9-13900K ES with DDR4 memory

An alleged engineering sample of the Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake processor has appeared on the CPU-Z validation website, as spotted @TUM_APISAK.

This 125W SKU is a K-series processor with 8 performance cores and 16 efficient cores. Although the software does not recognize the model, only one processor should now feature such a configuration, the upcoming Core i9-13900K. The CPU-Z software reports a maximum CPU clock of 4.987 GHz for performance cores and 2.993 GHz for efficient cores.

With a single-threaded score of 846 points and a multi-threaded score of 13054 points, this CPU would be the fastest in the single-core CPU-Z ranking (currently led by the Core i9-12900KF at 819 points). The multi-threaded score is 15% better than 12900KF (11289 points) and 10% faster than Ryzen 9 5950X (16 cores, 32 threads). It’s also worth noting that the purported Core i9-13900K sample is also slightly faster (2%) than the 24-core/48-thread Threadripper 2970WX in this comparison.

Compared to the recently leaked Core i9-13900K ES3 tests, it appears to match a 5.2GHz all-core OC configuration. It is also faster than the Core i5-13600K processor.

Interestingly, this is one of the first tests with a platform based on the Z690 motherboard chipset and DDR4. The software reports a 1330 MHz clock and DDR4-2660 memory specifications, which may be an error or very slow memory was actually used.

The i9-13900K is one of three K-series models scheduled to launch in the first wave. Details such as clock speeds or TDPs have not yet been confirmed, needless to say, the price has not been determined either.
