Early Benchmark Results for the Intel Core i9-13900T Display Extraordinary Efficiency

Intel debuted 16 new 13th-generation CPU types at CES, each with improved clock rates and power management. It has been stated that new Geekbench 5 benchmarks done on the Core i9-13900T demonstrate better performance and power efficiency compared to the previous Core i9-12900K.

Intel’s T-Series CPUs are built to generate substantially less heat than their K-Series counterparts, hence the difference in their names. To a large extent, power consumption decreases as temperature drops.

The amount of heat that can be dissipated is referred to as the thermal design point (TDP) in Watts. Intel refers to these figures as Processor Base Power and Maximum Turbo Power. Because Turbo Power is limited by temperature, it is rarely used for an extended period of time.

In comparison to the 125W required by the Core i9-12900K (8+8 cores), the new Core i9-13900T (8+16 cores) has a much lower Processor Base Power of 35W. The new i9-13900T has a redesigned design and, more importantly, twice as many “efficiency” cores than its predecessor, which gives it a leg up in benchmarks that measure the performance of several processes at once.

The new Core i9-13900T outperforms the Core i9-12900K in terms of performance and has a much lower TDP, with Geekbench 5 scores of 2,178 (single thread) and 17,339 (multi-thread).

While it may be challenging to use all 24 cores, current operating systems often have hundreds of threads running simultaneously and would benefit from this type of CPU design. Without a doubt, Intel collects and analyses a great deal of application traces to inform the design of its next-generation central processing unit (CPU). Changes in the actual world might be expected.

Though these are now only available as desktop CPUs, maybe future Intel mobile chips will be even more efficient with their power consumption. Watching Intel and AMD go head to head recently has been intriguing, and consumers have reaped significant benefits from the technological advancements Intel introduced in its 12th-generation CPUs to maintain competitiveness.
