The Geekbench test database noted another model of the next series of Intel Raptor Lake processors with a souffix called "K" in the name, the 16-nuclear Core i7-137000K. This chip has a unlocked multiplier that allows manual acceleration.
The engineering sample Core i7-13700K was tested on the ASRock Z690 Steel Legend motherboard, which works with the DDR.4 According to the test, the processor has 16 kernels supported by 24 virtual streams.
The average clock frequency of the processor in Geekbench tests was 5.36 GHz. According to detailed information, the chip operated in the frequency range from 5289 to 5381 MHz.
In the same nuclear test, the chip scored 2,090 points, and in the multi-nuclear score, 16542 points, which is 10 and 17% higher than the predecessor in Core i7-12700K of the Alder Lake series. The multi-nuclear performance of the engineering sample Core i7-13700K was slightly higher than that of the flagship 16-nuclear AMD Ryzen 959550X. Intel's single-nuclear performance exceeded the AMD processor by 24%.
According to the latest rumours, the Raptor Lake processors will be available in September of this year and will be marketed in October. Intel will first release senior models with the "K" souffix, and the others will be released later.
