The Intel Core i9-13900  sample is 20% faster

In new benchmarks, the Intel Core i9-13900 engineering sample outperforms Alder Lake by 20%.

As we get closer to the release of Intel's upcoming 13th-generation processors, the number of leaks increases

New benchmarks of an i9-13900 engineering sample show that the CPU will have a significant increase in multi-threaded performance due to the addition of eight extra E-cores.

Although Intel's 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs are still a few months away from release

A Chinese tech site has obtained and tested an early sample of the i9-13900.

It has 8 Performance cores and 16 Efficient cores, which is twice as many as its predecessor, the i9-12900

 Other notable differences include a new P-core microarchitecture codenamed Raptor Cove and increased L2 and L3 cache.

Exp Review tested the unreleased processor on a current-generation Z690 motherboard and discovered that it is surprisingly already supported.

It is an engineering sample, the big cores can only boost to 3.8 GHz.

The extra E-cores, the i9-13900 is 20% faster on average in application benchmarks than an i9-12900K locked at the same frequency

 The Raptor Lake chip is slightly slower than its predecessor in single-threaded workloads and gaming, but  most likely due to unfinished microcode and a lack of proper BIOS support.
