Intel Core i5 13th-Gen is faster than Core i5 12th-Gen and is not even close. Intel is expected to release the 13th Gen CPU “Raptor Lake” series later this year. And from all indications, it seems the CPU’s launch is getting closer each day. Anyways, leaks have started pouring in from left and right.
The Intel Core i5-13600k made its latest appearance on Geekbench where its scores exceed that of the Intel Core i5-12600k of last year. Based on its appearance on the Geekbench website, the core i5-13600K is a 14-core CPU with 20 threads. For this configuration to work only 6 Performance cores are enabled and one cluster of 8 Efficient cores is present.
If we should go by the scores the CPU achieved on Geekbench, of which the CPUs were running at either 4.3 to 5.09 GHz (ASRock) or 5.05 to 5.1 GHz (ASUS). Intel Core i5-13600k scores on Geekbench were 1,980 and 2,012 points in single-core test and 14,425 and 16,054 in multi-core. This means the Intel Core i5 13th-Gen is about 8% faster than the Core i5 12th-Gen in single-core and up to 38% better in multi-core.
