Core i7-13700 Shows Higher Single-Threaded Performance Than Core i9-12900K

As Intel’s 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors are at close range, more leaked benchmarks have emerged. On this occasion, hardware leaker Tum_Apisak(opens in new tab) has uncovered a couple of the chipmaker’s non-K SKUs, including the Core i7-13700, Core i5-13500, and Core i5-13400.

The Core i7-13700 wields 16 cores and 24 threads. The 65W Raptor Lake chip has eight P-cores and eight E-cores, with the former reportedly running with a 2.1 GHz base clock. It’s the same P-core base clock as the current Core i7-12700. The boost clock speed for the Core i7-13700 is currently unknown, but the current trend shows that it may be lower than its Alder Lake counterpart. However, the Core i7-13700 has four more E-cores than the Core i7-12700.

According to PassMark, the Core i7-13700 (4,347 CPU marks) delivered up to 3.3% higher single-threaded performance than the Core i9-12900K. Furthermore, compared to the Core i7-12700 (3,947 CPU marks), the Core i7-13700 showed a 10.1% improvement.


While the Core i7-13700 revealed strong single-threaded performance, the 65W chip couldn’t contend in a multi-threaded scenario. The Core i9-12900K (41,403 CPU marks) outpaced the Core i7-13700 (34,431 CPU marks) by a 20.2% margin in multi-threaded workloads. From a generation-over-generation standpoint, the Core i7-13700 only offered 9.7% higher multi-threaded performance over the Core i7-12700 (31,388 CPU marks).
