The latest benchmarks for Intel’s first 6GHz CPU, the Core i9-13900KS, have been leaked inside the Geekbench 5 benchmark database and are 10% higher than the 13900K.
Intel Core i9-13900KS 6GHz CPU is 5% faster in single performance and 10% faster in multi-threaded performance in latest benchmark leak
The flagship Raptor Lake CPU will be the Intel Core i9-13900KS, which has 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The 13900KS CPU has a “thermal speed boost” frequency of up to 6GHz, making it the first chip to reach that frequency out of the box. The CPU features a “Turbo Boost Max” frequency of up to 5.8GHz while the P-Cores operate at a standard turbo frequency of up to 5.4GHz and the e-cores operate at up to 4.3GHz.
- Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) – 3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66 MB cache, 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2) +
- Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 / 5.5 GHz – 30MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)
The CPU will have 68MB of onboard cache and a PL1 rating of 150W rated power up to 253W and more using Max Power profile modes. The CPU is expected to cost around $799 when it hits retail in early 2023 but will be available in limited quantities.
In single-core performance, the CPU scores 2319 points which puts it ahead of 5% over the i9-13900K, and if we compare the multi-threading performance, we are looking at up to 10% better performance. Against the Core i9-12900KS, the Core i9-13900KS will provide a 10% performance bump in single-core and a 40% performance increase in multi-threaded performance.
Now the Core i9-13900KS will not be cheap and will definitely cost a $100-$200 premium over the Core i9-13900K while also consuming much higher power. But that’s why the chip will mostly be a limited production run and the quantities won’t be the same as standard Core i9-13900K CPUs.
