First Geekbench 5 benchmark of the Intel Core i7-13700K

Last week we already reported on the new Intel Core i7-13700K processor, which is expected in autumn 2022. With 8+8 CPU cores (24 threads), the Intel Core i7-13700K should have the same configuration as last year's Intel Core i9-12900K. With this, Intel wants to finally get rid of AMD's lead in multi-core performance, which has existed for several years.

First Geekbench 5 Benchmark

Now a first benchmark run in the Geekbench 5 benchmark with the Intel Core i7-13700K has appeared. It should be noted that the maximum CPU clock frequency was measured at 5.3 GHz. Up to 5.5 GHz could even be possible via the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, but this has not yet been confirmed.

In the benchmark that has now been published, the Intel Core i7-13700K achieves 2090 points in the single-core run and 16542 points using all cores. While the single-core result is very decent with 2090 points (Intel Core i9-13900K approx. 2133 points), the multi-core result falls short of expectations. According to Geekbench 5, however, the benchmark was only carried out with DDR4-3600.

However, the Intel Core i7-13700K will very likely support DDR5-5600 and should thus achieve significantly more points in the Geekbench 5 benchmark. The Geekbench 5 benchmark is very sensitive to the built-in memory, while in render benchmarks such as CineBench R23 it has almost no influence on the performance or the rating.


Intel Core i7-13700K vs Intel Core i7-12700K

A detailed CPU comparison between the Intel Core i7-13700K and the Intel Core i7-12700K shows a difference in the multi-core performance at only about 10 percent. However, we expect a performance boost of around 20 percent here.


With faster memory and possibly an optimized bios, the Intel Core i7-13700K could actually be around 20 percent faster in multi-core applications than its predecessor. This would make the processor even faster than the Intel Core i9-12900K, which was the fastest processor for the LGA1700 socket last year.
