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

Chinese video sharing platform bilibiliThe first benchmarks of two engineering samples of the type i5-13600K and i7-13700K, the Chinese counterpart of YouTube, which were developed by @ extreme playerKnown for its authentic benchmarks against pre-production models.

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

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

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

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

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