An alleged engineering sample of the Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU has emerged over at CPU-Z Validation website, as spotted by @TUM_APISAK

This 125W SKU is a K-series processor with 8 Performance and 16 Efficient cores. Although the software does not recognize the model, only one processor is now expected to feature such configuration, the upcoming Core i9-13900K. The CPU-Z software reports on a maximum CPU clock of 4.987 GHz for Performance cores and 2.993 GHz for Efficient cores.

With a single-thread score of 846 points and multi-thread at 13054 points, such CPU would be the fastest in single-core CPU-Z ranking (currently lead by Core i9-12900KF at 819 points). The multi-thread score is 15% higher than 12900KF (11289 points) and 10% faster than Ryzen 9 5950X (16-core, 32-thread). One should also note that the alleged Core i9-13900K sample is also slightly faster (2%) than 24-core/48-thread Threadripper 2970WX in this comparison.

In comparison to recently leaked Core i9-13900K ES3 tests, it appears to match a 5.2 GHz all-core OC configuration. It is also faster than Core i5-13600K CPU.

Interestingly, this is one of the first tests with a platform based on Z690 motherboard chipset and DDR4. The software reports 1330 MHz clock and DDR4-2660 memory spec, which might either be a mistake or a very slow memory was used indeed.

The i9-13900K is one of the three K-Series models planned to launch in the first wave. Details such as clock speeds or TDPs have not been confirmed yet, needless to say the pricing has not been determined either.
