Intel recently introduced and launched the high-performance mobile Tiger Lake-H45 processors with six and eight cores. And today we will find out what the flagship CPU Core i9-11980HK is capable of compared to its predecessors and AMD processors.

Recall that the Core i9-11980HK contains eight cores with Hyper-Threading support and operates at frequencies of 3.3-5.0 GHz with a TDP of 45-65 W. He replaced the Core i9-10980HK, which, with similar parameters, is technologically a very old processor, since in fact it differs little from the Core i9-9980HK, relying on both a 14-nanometer process technology and a slightly modified Skylake architecture.

As a result, the Core i9-11980HK is not only the most modern mobile Intel processor, but also the first really new CPU of this class of the company in many years. And the first Core processor in several years, in theory capable of competing with older mobile Ryzen.

As you can see, the Core i9-11980HK really turned out to be very productive. In games, it bypasses its predecessor by an average of only 3%, but still in many projects the gain exceeds 7%. And these are just games. In applications, the novelty is not only always faster, but also the difference is often at least 10%, sometimes exceeding 20%. And this is with the same number of cores, TDP and lower frequencies.

Comparison with the brand new Core i7-11800H, which is one step lower, shows that it does not always make sense to overpay. Well, the top-end Ryzen 9 5900HX is just a litmus test. When comparing, it is clearly seen that with an average of very similar performance, you need, as always, to look at specific applications. Yes, Intel got a very fast processor, but AMD had several years of head start, so as a result, in resource-intensive applications that can load all the cores of modern CPUs, the AMD flagship turns out to be 8-15% faster.

In the end, we can say that the new Tiger Lake-H45 really succeeded. They are significantly faster than their predecessors and, in general, are able to compete with similar Ryzen CPUs, albeit with a number of reservations. Unless prices, as usual, are higher in the case of Intel processors, but in the mobile segment they have to be compared indirectly.

Operating at only 66%, 96-core AMD processors wipe out all competitors. Epyc Genoa test results in Cinebench R23

Operating at only 66 96 core AMD processors wipe out all

The test results of two AMD Epyc server processors of the Genoa generation with 96 cores each have appeared on the Web. According to available data, this is either Epyc 9664 or Epyc 9654.

The CPU was tested in Cinebench R23, and the catch is that this software recognizes a maximum of 256 threads. Two 96-core processors have 384 threads thanks to SMT support. That is, the result obtained in the benchmark reflects only two thirds of the capabilities of the tested pair of CPUs.

Despite this, the processors scored over 110,000 points in multi-threaded mode. In a single thread, the result was 1302 points.

For comparison, one 64-core Threadripper 5995WX gains about the same amount (even a little more), but overclocked to 5.15 GHz using liquid nitrogen. The comparison with the direct competitor Xeon Platinum 8480+ is more interesting. A system with two of these 56-core processors scores only about 68,500 points. True, the source says that there were problems in the operation of these CPUs, so serial processors may show slightly better results. However, in any case, the gap is huge, because even two current-generation 64-core Epyc 7763 score 98,000 points. As a result, it is not yet clear whether the new Intel server processors will be able to somehow withstand the monsters of AMD. In addition, judging by the latest data, Sapphire Rapids-SP will eventually be delayed even more and will not be released until next year.

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

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.

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%.
