If you’re looking for a new CPU this year, then both Intel and AMD will be launching their next generation of processors later in 2022. As we get closer to launch though, more and more benchmarks are leaking out showcasing the performance uplift over previous generations, and Intel’s flagship is looking like a particular beast in this one…
Of course, the Intel Core i9-13900K has 8 more total cores than the Intel Core i9-12900K, but still the latest benchmark courtesy of the Ashes of the Singularity benchmark results showcases some significant improvements in the Raptor Lake generation over Alder Lake. Plus, it even beats out the top-end AMD Ryzen 9 5950X pretty impressively.
As you can see, the 13900K scores 204.7fps at the Crazy 4K preset (no other benchmarks at lower resolutions have been released yet), which is 24% faster than the 12900K which achieves 165.3fps at the same settings and specs. Additionally, the flagship Intel 13th gen CPU is 43% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X which gets 143.5fps, and 68% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D which delivers 121.4fps.
What do you think? Are you excited for the Intel 13th gen processors? How do you feel about the performance improvements above? Are they more or less impressive than you imagined? Let us know your thoughts!
