The first benchmarks from China compare the Core i5-13600K and i7-13700K in the form of development samples (Engineering Sample, ES) in games with their direct predecessors, the Core i5-12600K and i7-12700K. Raptor Lake wins the duel between the two hybrids with a plus of up to 14 percent.

The first benchmarks of two i5-13600K and i7-13700K engineering samples have appeared on the Chinese video sharing platform Bilibili, the Chinese equivalent of YouTube @ExtremePlayerknown for its authentic benchmarks against pre-production models.

  • Core i5-13600K (ES) Gaming Benchmarks (DDR4-3600)
  • Core i5-13600K (ES) Gaming Benchmarks (DDR5-5600)
  • Core i7-13700K (ES) Gaming Benchmarks (DDR4-3600)
  • Core i7-13700K (ES) Gaming Benchmarks (DDR5-5600)

The Twitter user @harukaze5719 has clearly packed the results of the benchmarks into diagrams, which are further subdivided into DDR4 and DDR5. The new Core i 13000 series also has a memory controller for RAM of both generations.

Gaming benchmarks and the synthetic benchmark suite 3DMark attest the “Refresh” from Intel Alder Lake (test) up to 14 percent more performance at the top, but on average it’s more like 6 to 8 percent.

All benchmarks were carried out with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti (test) and with 32 GB DDR4-3600 or DDR5-5600 on an ASRock Z690 Steel Legend or ASRock Z690 Steel Legend D5.

Even if the increases are still limited, the fact that these are still engineering samples that are designed to enable OEM customers to evaluate their systems and not to break records should not be ignored achieved in benchmarks.
