Intel Core i9-13900K is currently the fastest processor in the PassMark single-thread ranking

The upcoming Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake flagship CPU is the fastest single-threaded processor, according to PassMark.

The Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900K CPU beats all other processors in PassMark’s single-threaded benchmark.

The Intel Core i9-13900K is the most powerful Raptor Lake CPU. It has 8 P-Core (Raptor Cove) and 16 E-Core (Gracemont V2) cores for 24 and 32 threads. The CPU is set up with a base clock of 3.0 GHz, a boost clock of 5.8 GHz for 1-2 seats, and a boost clock of 5.5 GHz for all cores (all 8 P-Cores). The CPU has a cache size of 68 MB and a PL1 rating of 125W that goes up to 250W. In “Unlimited Power Mode,” the CPU can use up to 350W of power.

Different benchmarks have shown that the Intel 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake CPUs significantly increase frequency. But in a recent PassMark example, the single thread performance of the Core i9-13900K is tested, and the processor gets 4833 points, which is 9.5% higher than the previous Alder Lake processors.

In multi-threaded tests, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor gets 54433 points, which is 19% higher than the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor in the same tests. But AMD’s newest Ryzen 7000 series processors are not tested by PassMark. This is true even though AMD’s next-generation CPUs came out before Intel’s Raptor Lake series.

In the first image, there are rankings for not only the Intel Core i9-13900K processor but also the i7-13700, i5-13500, and i5-13400 CPUs. The Intel Raptor Lake CPUs are likely to be announced at the Innovation event next week. Then, in October, they will be released officially.
