The Intel Core i5-13600KF processor appeared unexpectedly in the Geekbench test

Since we are close to the unveiling of Intel's 13th generation processors, which are referred to as Raptor Lake, the number of news about them has increased compared to before. Even once, Intel has mistakenly leaked their specifications so that we can officially access a series of details about them.

Since we are close to the unveiling of Intel's 13th generation processors, which are referred to as Raptor Lake, the number of news about them has increased compared to before. Even once, Intel has mistakenly leaked their specifications so that we can officially access a series of details about them.

In the last few days, we have seen the presence of processors such as Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i7- 13700KF and Core i5-13600K in Geekbench. Geekbench is a kind of benchmark that examines the speed of the chip in terms of single and multi-core. Now, another chip from this series, the Intel Core i5-13600KF, appeared in this test, but it failed to perform as well as it should in the multi-core section.

Since the Core i5-13600KF processor is actually the same The Core i5-13600K is without a built-in GPU, we expected their performance to be equal in this test. This processor uses 14 cores, including 6 powerful cores with a maximum frequency of 5.1 GHz and 8 low-power cores. Also, the number of virtual cores or threads of this chip reaches 20.

In the test that was carried out on this processor (KF model), the test system was made of Asus Prime Z690-P IFI D4 motherboard and 16 GB of RAM with Uncertain speed benefits. With this hardware combination, the aforementioned chip was able to achieve 1994 and 12.377 points respectively in the single and multi-core sections.

What is interesting is that the K model of the same processor, although it managed to get almost the same score in the single-core section, but it appeared 23% better than the KF model in the multi-core section. This performance difference between the two chips, whose only difference is the lack of internal graphics in the KF model, does not seem very logical, but a series of factors such as RAM memory speed, cooling, system energy consumption mode, board type, etc., play an important and influential role in recording the result. and it is possible that the factors mentioned above were not the same when testing these two chips.

If we want to compare the performance of the Core i5-13600KF processor with a processor from a competing company, The Ryzen 5 7600X is the only processor with the closest performance. Of course, with the difference that in the single-core section, Intel's representative is about 9% weaker and in the multi-core section, it is almost as fast as the competitor.

Compared to the previous generation, Core i5-12600K, The new representative of Intel is about 10% faster in the single-core section, but surprisingly, it appears 3% weaker in the multi-core section, so that we can almost be sure of the influence of other factors on this result. Most likely, in this test, there is a problem such as not using the right cooling, otherwise the unexpected performance chain does not seem very logical considering the test that was done earlier on the Core i5-13600K processor.

It is interesting to know that in the single-core section, this chip is almost equal to the most powerful 12th generation Intel chip, the Core i9-12900K processor, but in the multi-core section, it is weaker by 31%. Of course, the previous generation Intel processor uses 16 cores and it is natural that it appears better than the Core i5-13600KF; Now, maybe because of the problem we mentioned, this difference is actually less than 31%.

However, these numbers and figures are only preliminary tests that have been done on Intel processors and therefore cannot be strongly comment on them or compare them with competing company's processors. We have to wait for these products to be officially available, which will happen soon.
