Despite the fact that before the release of Intel Raptor Lake processors there are still at least a few months left, there are already a lot of tests and reports on the Web about the performance of the flagship Core i9-13900K model. And now the Chinese (it is in China that engineering samples of the latest CPUs appear earlier than other countries) have tested a simpler and cheaper model – the Core i5-13600K. And he impressed.
For starters, the settings. The Core i5-13600K will be a 10-core processor, with 6 large and 8 small cores. The maximum frequency of the large ones will be 5.1 GHz, which, coupled with an increased L2 cache to 20 MB and a 24 MB L3 cache, in itself promises a significant increase in performance. For comparison, the parameters of the current Core i5-12600K: 6 large cores with a maximum frequency of 4.9 GHz, 4 small cores, 9.5 MB L2 cache and 20 MB L3 cache.
Now – to the results. In CPU-Z, the Core i5-13600K engineering sample was 28% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X in a single-threaded test. In multi-threaded, he, of course, lost, but lost only slightly. And here you should take into account the fact that all the cores of the Ryzen 9 5950X are the same and operate at the highest possible frequency, unlike the promising Core i5.
The Core i5-13600K ran at a lower frequency in Cinebench R23, but that didn’t stop it from outperforming the Ryzen 9 5900X in the multi-threaded test by about 10%. Once the frequency issue is fixed, the Core i5-13600K may be faster in the single-threaded test as well.
In general, the Core i5-13600K is impressive already now, at the stage of an engineering sample. At an adequate cost (and, most likely, it will be, judging by the Alder Lake CPU), it can become a hit.
Samsung is preparing an “ultimate” SSD. The company teases with a promotional video with a new drive
Samsung has started teasing Twitter users with an advertisement for a new SSD. The company does not specify the details, calling the new Ultimate SSD.
Third-party sources expect this to be a new SSD (or a whole series) with a PCIe 5.0 interface. These may well be models of the Samsung 990 SSD line, which were previously lit up in the databases of regulators.
Samsung previously released the PM1743 PCIe 5.0 SSD for the data center, and it offers data transfer speeds of up to 14GB/s, so you can expect similar numbers from the 990 Pro.
Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster. The power limit will increase to 350W
Intel can make the Core i9-13900K even more attractive with a new auto-overclocking mode.
The source reports that some motherboards based on 700-series chipsets will allow you to activate an increased power limit. In this case, we are talking about a value of 350 watts. For comparison, Alder Lake has a maximum of 241 watts.
The values of PL1 and PL2 for the new CPUs will hardly change and will amount to 125 and 253 W, respectively. But there will also be an opportunity to remove the limit, thanks to which the Core i9-13900K will be able to consume up to 350 watts. In this case, of course, the motherboard will need a powerful power supply subsystem, and the processor will need a productive CO.
CPU performance in this mode can increase by 15%, although this will depend on the tasks. Whether the Core i9-13900KS, which was previously assigned a frequency of up to 6 GHz, will be released under such conditions is now unclear.
This is Ryzen 7 7700X. Pre-sale copy first lit up in the photo
The first photo of the Ryzen 7 7700X processor has appeared on the Web, which should be presented on August 29, and it is expected to go on sale on September 27.
Apparently, the picture shows a pre-sale version. Perhaps this is one of the copies for media reviews.
The Ryzen 7 7700X is an octa-core SMT capable CPU up to 5.4GHz with a TDP of 105W. According to leaks, such a processor will cost about $ 300, that is, it will not rise in price relative to its predecessor at the start of sales.
Recall, in addition to this model, a 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, a 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X and a six-core Ryzen 5 7600X are also expected. Later the line may well expand.
