Intel recently introduced the brand new 13th generation T-series chips which includes the Core i9-13900T which clocks in at 35W TDP. The new chip has been benchmarked within Geekbench 5 and shows impressive performance considering its limited power budget.
Intel’s 13th Gen Core i9-13900T 35W CPU Beats 125W Core i9-12900K in Geekbench 5 Benchmark
Starting with the specifications, the Intel Core i9-13900T is a variant of the Core i9-13900 series that comes with a limited TDP design. While the standard chips boast 125W TDP in the unlocked and 65W TDP on the non-K SKU, the T-Series chip is limited to 35W TDP. The unlocked CPU is rated at up to 253W, the non-K at up to 219W while the T-series chip is rated at up to 106W which is less than half the power budget of its higher-end siblings is also less.
The Intel Core i9-13900T retains the same core configuration with 24 cores made up of 8 P-cores and 16 E-cores with 32 threads, a base clock of 1.10GHz, a boost cache of 5.30GHz and up to 68MB ( L2+L3). The CPU also comes in at a slightly lower price point of $549.00 US. Now the CPU has been tested within the Geekbench 5 benchmark using an ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS WIFI board and coupled with 64 GB of DDR5 memory.
The CPU scored 2178 points in single-core and 17339 points in multi-core tests. We used the Intel Core i9-12900K for comparison, which scored 1901 points in the single-core and 17272 points in the multi-core tests. It beats the Intel Core i9-13900T by up to 15% faster in single-core and slightly faster in multi-threaded tests which is very impressive considering the Core i9-12900K has a 125W base TDP (3.58x higher) and a peak . TDP rating 241W (2.27x higher).
This goes to show the extreme efficiency of Intel’s 10nm ESF process node and the new hybrid architecture pack, and we’ll likely see some of the same results with the mobility lineup, especially the 13th generation HX parts that will be shipping in enthusiast-grade. have been gaming laptops in the coming months. AMD also introduced its brand new 65W Ryzen 7000 non-X CPU which is showcasing some impressive efficiency on its own with the Zen 4 core architecture.
