Intel's i9-13900K delivers an impressive 60% performance gain over an i9-12900K in 7-Zip decompression
Intel's next-generation flagship promises to impress, reportedly delivering users higher core clock speeds than its predecessor and a significant increase in the number of CPU cores that are available. These changes deliver users more single-threaded and multi-threaded performance, both of which are welcome changes for all kinds of PC workloads.
Thanks to @OneRaichu on Twitter, a benchmark for Intel's i9-13900K has leaked that showcases the decompression performance of Intel's upcoming flagship when using DDR5-6400 memory at CL34 timings. When compared to an i9-12900K, Intel's incoming flagship delivers 60-70% performance gains in a 7zip decompression test, which is a huge generational performance leap.
Intel's i9-13900K will offer users eight P-cores (Performance Cores) and sixteen E-cores (Efficient Cores), giving the CPU a total of Twenty-Four CPU cores. Today's i9-12900K processor has eight P-cores and eight E-cores, giving the i9-13900K eight additional E-cores. That's a 50% increase in total CPU core count. Add on Intel's core clock speed enhancement and improved caches with their 13th Generation Raptor Lake silicon, and Intel can deliver huge performance gains over their 12th Generation Alder Lake CPUs in multi-threaded workloads.
With multi-threaded performance gains like this, Intel's 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors should give AMD a lot to be concerned about. It looks like AMD's Ryzen 7000 series will max out with a 16-core processor, potentially allowing Raptor Lake to have superior multi-threaded performance thanks to the i9-13900K's huge E-core count. That said, it remains unknown how performant AMD's Zen 4 CPU cores are in real-world workloads, or how well AMD's latest "all-P-Core" CPU design will compare with Intel's next-generation hybrid processors.
