Benchmarks


The Intel Core i5-13500 is a hybrid 14-core processor that can process up to 20 threads in parallel. This makes it suitable for more demanding applications and games. The basic clock frequency is 2.5 GHz (P cores) or 1.8 GHz (E cores). In turbo mode, the P-cores can reach a clock frequency of up to 4.8 GHz.

Specifically, the Intel Core i5-13500 has six P cores (Golden Cove) and 8 E cores (Gracemont). The CPU core architecture of the Intel Core i5-13500 is still based on the 12th generation of the Intel Core i series. This has less cache, but otherwise has hardly any disadvantages. The Intel Core i5-13600K and Intel Core i5-13600KF processors are currently the only i5 processors of the 13th generation Intel Core i series that use the latest P cores (Raptor Cove) from Intel.

The Intel UHD Graphics 770 is used as the integrated graphics in the Intel Core i5-13500, which should mainly be used for video playback. This iGPU is too weak for games or more demanding tasks. However, all modern video codecs can be decoded in hardware by the iGPU, which significantly reduces the computing load when playing modern video formats.

The processor can connect up to 128 GB of DDR4-3200 or DDR5-4800 RAM. Using the Intel XMP OC profile, faster main memory modules such as DDR5-5200 or DDR5-5600 can usually be used without any problems.

The Intel Core i5-13500 can connect external devices such as a dedicated graphics card with up to PCIe 5.0 x16, another 4 PCIe lines are available for a fast M.2 SSD. How quickly this can be connected depends not only on the processor but also on the chipset of the mainboard.

The Intel Core i5-13500 is manufactured using the Intel 7 (10 nm) manufacturing process and has a TDP of 65 watts (154 watts PL2).
