Intel Core i9 13900K performance test results released: Fast yet power hungry!
The flagship model of Intel’s 13th generation Core processors Core i9 13900K It seems that it will provide the performance it promises to …
General performance values
Most Core i9 13900K The review has two things in common: Details on performance and power consumption. When we look at the information obtained in the tests, gaming performanceAMD’s top model of the Core i9 13900K in terms of Ryzen 9 7950X‘I 5-10 percent We see it in the middle. It is also a valuable detail that processor performances converge when resolution increases and both processor generations are sensitive to high-speed memories. In application-based rendering and encode performance, we can assume that the processors are equivalent.
on the other hand Core i9 13900Kno matter how good the game performance looks, power consumption and just as bad in energy efficiency . First of all, it is useful to mention the TDP prices that Intel has determined for the Core i9 13900K: PL1 125W and PL2 253W.
However, when looking at the data collected from multiple sources, the power rating of the Core i9 13900K to achieve maximum performance exceeds these values by 20 to 40 percent. In heavy synthetic tests Core i9 13900Kof alone 300W It draws attention that he sometimes crosses this threshold. For example scenario conditions Ryzen 9 7950X, on the other hand, does not exceed 250W.
In everyday usage scenariosin the middle of the processors scissors are narrowing . Again, the Core i9 13900K is the side that consumes more power, but the differences in the middle vary compared to the process in the middle of 10-30W. The difference between the processors in the office pedestals is quite low.
In fact, both Ryzen 9 7950Xas well as Core i9 13900K they are not the smoothest in terms of cooling and temperature performance. In daily usage scenarios, the temperature costs of the processors will not be a problem, but in heavy and heavily loaded usage scenarios for both processors, especially for the Core i9 13900K. a great cooler base. Because in scenarios that exhaust the processor such as gaming, Core i9 13900K seems to run hotter than Ryzen 7950X in many cases. in some cases Core i9 13900Kof Throttling It is seen that the processor reduces its performance (GHz) to protect itself due to the high temperatures, which are called as In stress tests, which will not be encountered in daily use, this situation becomes much more noticeable.
