The slides shared by our reader “RUBY’s|RYZEN|RAYDEON RAGE 3D” show Intel Core i9-13900K beating AMD flagship CPU from the new desktop series. 

It looks like the slides were shown during a recent Raptor Lake pre-launch events, which are now taking place around the world for the tech press and analysts. It is not clear if these slides in particular are under embargo, but it is clear that they have not been shared before. That’s simply because AMD Ryzen 7000 series were not available yet when Intel was announcing their Raptor Lake series.

According to this slide, Intel Core i9-13900K is offers -1% worse to 22% better performance than AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in gaming. Both CPUs are the flagship of the new desktop series. On average, Intel CPU will be 11% faster than AMD Zen4 CPU.
