It seems that the i9-13900K will use a more mature process architecture and various turbo speed technologies to achieve a new high frequency. I have seen i9-13900K and i7-13700K overclocked to or even exceed 6GHz many times before.
Higher frequencies naturally have higher performance,i9-13900K can now run 2314 points for single core and 26464 points for multi-core, compared with the previously leaked 5.5GHz frequency, the results are about 8.5% and 11.7% higher, respectively, and about 16.5% and 53.1% higher than the i9-12900K!
If you compareAMDThe current highest-end Ryzen 9 5950X has a single-core lead of 37.3% and a multi-core lead of 60%!just kinda scary…
Of course, the Zen4 architecture is not vegetarian. Although the Ryzen 9 7950X still has 16 cores and 32 threads, the secondary cache is doubled to 16MB, the base frequency is increased by 1.1GHz to 4.5GHz, and the acceleration frequency is increased by 800MHz to 5.7GHz, which should not be underestimated.
