According to Twitter user HXL, Intel’s 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPU family is outperforming AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs in the Blender Benchmark. The Core i7-13700K competes with the Ryzen 9 7900X, while the Core i5-13600K outperforms the Ryzen 7 7600X and Ryzen 7 7700X. Blender is an open-source content production program that can do a variety of activities, including 3D rendering, video editing, modelling, animation VFX, and more. As a result, the software may be CPU and GPU intensive, making it a good tool for benchmarking.
AMD’s 16-core monster, the Ryzen 9 7950X, tops the list with a score of 607.53 points. At 557.66 points, the 24-core Core i9-13900K stands under the Ryzen 9 7950X. The Ryzen 9 7900X has 462.39 points, the Core i7-13700K has 429.7 points, the Core i5-13600K has 358.18 points, the Ryzen 7 7700X has 305.51 points, and the Ryzen 5 5600X has 234.65 points.
The following benchmark run is amazing to see because it demonstrates how powerful Intel’s hybrid microarchitecture, Raptor Lake, can be right now. Based on these data alone, we can tell that Intel had regained most of the multi-core performance that it had lost to AMD when Ryzen originally released in 2017.
Only AMD’s Ryzen 9 components can outperform Intel’s Raptor Lake CPUs in Blender’s intensive multi-core task. The Ryzen 9 7950X is 9% quicker than the Core i9-13900K, and it outperforms the Core i7-13700K by 7.6%. Even still, the results aren’t terrific, given Intel’s pricing policy. The Core i9-13900K, for example, is $50 less expensive than the 7950X, while the Core i7-13700K is a stunning $100 less expensive than the 7900X.
It will be fascinating to observe how Raptor Lake acts after the design is reviewed in the next weeks. However, Intel looks to have the ability to win the multi-threaded struggle with its newest incarnation of its hybrid CPU design.
