Intel’s latest desktop processor architecture still falls short of Zen 3. Ryzen 9 5950X vs. Core i9-11900K compare on equal terms

Intel Rocket Lake-S processors will soon go on sale, and with them Comet Lake Refresh models should also appear on the shelves. As a reminder, the Rocket Lake lineup includes Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9 models. Everything that is younger belongs to the Comet Lake Refresh line, that is, it is based on the old architecture. And today we can take a look at the review of the Core i3-10325 and Core i3-10105.

Compared to their predecessors, such CPUs offer a 100 MHz higher frequency, and that’s all. Naturally, the performance gain in this case is scanty, but the interesting thing is that the source recorded a slight decrease in power consumption and operating temperatures. In any case, it makes no sense to switch from Comet Lake to Comet Lake Refresh within the same segment.

However, the source decided to make the material more interesting and compared not only processors, but also architectures. To do this, the Core i3-10320 (Comet Lake) and Core i3-10325 (Comet Lake Refresh) processors were supplemented with the Core i9-11900K (Cypress Cove) and Ryzen 9 5950X (Zen 3). At the same time, all processors worked at a frequency of 4 GHz, and all had only four cores active.

As a result, as we can see, Comet Lake Refresh provides a performance increase of 2-3% at best, but Rocket Lake is already 15-25% faster, and this can really be considered a very great achievement. True, in order to catch up with Zen 3, this is not enough, since such a CPU turns out to be 5-10% faster than Intel’s new product, and there is no need to talk about a comparison with Comet Lake.

Of course, even under the stipulated conditions, we are not talking about a direct comparison of architectures only. But to put it simply, Zen 3 is faster than Cypress Cove, although the gap isn’t nearly as catastrophic as it once was.

The specs for almost every Intel desktop processor of the Raptor Lake generation have surfaced online.

Almost all new Intel Core processors will have 14 or more cores.  Specs for most Raptor Lake CPUs revealed

According to this document, we are waiting for 14 CPUs with the number of cores from four to 24, while there will be only one quad-core – Core i3-13100. The next model (Core i5-13400) will have 10 cores, and it will also be the only one, because the Core i5-13500 and a number of older CPUs will already offer 14 cores.

Only the Core i9s will get the new die type, as only they will have a full configuration with eight large and 16 small cores. By the way, the Core i9-13900KS is not in the table, so it really may not be, especially if we recall the recent data on the 350-watt power limit for older Cores.

Overclocked to 6.2 GHz, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor was 60% faster than the current flagship AMD Ryzen 5950X

Overclocked to 62 GHz the Intel Core i9 13900K processor was

The 13th generation Intel Core processors (Raptor Lake) continue to amaze with their overclocking capabilities and, as a result, performance. Another experiment was set up on an engineering sample of the Core i9-13900KF, whose high-performance cores were overclocked to a frequency of 6.2 GHz. The frequency of 5.2 GHz was also the most energy efficient.

Overclocked to 6.2 GHz, the Intel Core i9-13900K processor was 60% faster than the current flagship AMD Ryzen 5950X

In Cinebench R23, this CPU scored 42,790 in the multi-threaded test and 2263 in the single-threaded test – a very good result, especially considering that the tested CPU with lower frequencies – 5.8 GHz (high-performance cores) and 4.7 GHz (energy efficient) . With such overclocking, the Core i9-13900KF turned out to be noticeably faster than both the Core i9-12900K and even more so the Ryzen 9 5950X in a single-threaded test, and in a multi-threaded performance difference is about 50% in favor of the new Intel CPU.

In addition to Cinebench, the overclocked Core i9-13900KF was also tested in CPU-Z. In this test, it outperformed the Ryzen 9 5950X by about 60% in both single and multi-threaded tests. The superiority over the Core i9-12900K in the multi-threaded test is 70%, in the single-threaded test it is already 20%.

The results of testing the mysterious Intel A580 graphics card

The entry-level A380 graphics cards have already entered the market, and the A750, A770 and A780 are expected to appear in the near future. However, so far there has been very little information about middle management solutions. And now, in the database of the gaming benchmark from Ashes of Singularity, references to the A580 model appeared.

The GPU was tested at 1080p, where it scored 9300 points and about 95 FPS. At the same time, testing was carried out using the Vulkan graphical interface, and not DirectX12. For comparison, the RTX 3060 graphics card produces 75-96 FPS at similar settings on Vulkan.

Of course, you can’t rate the card on only one result, since the characteristics of the test platform, driver version and other indicators are unknown. However, the available data look encouraging.

At the same time, Intel itself announced another card as a competitor to the RTX 3060 – the potentially more powerful A750. It remains to wait for their release in order to compare solutions directly.

Earlier it was reported that the A380 cards have already reached the United States.
