A Geekbench entry has surfaced showing the Core i9-13900HX laptop CPU in a Clevo gaming laptop. In the Geekbench 5 tests, the 24-core processor scored more points in the single-core test than an i9-12900K and more points in the multi-core test than an i7-13700K, mind you desktop CPUs. The presentation of the Core i9-13900HX from Intel’s 13th generation is expected at CES 2023.
Database entries from the Core i9-13900HX, the Raptor Lake flagship for laptops, are appearing more and more frequently. The CPU was already seen at work in a Razer Blade 18 laptop in November, and now it has been discovered in a Clevo system as a Geekbench entry. Similar to the desktop alternative Core i9-13900K, the HX has 24 cores and 32 threads. The big difference to other laptop CPUs of the same size in the H and HK series is the 10 W higher PBP of 55 instead of 45 W. A significantly higher MTP can also be expected, which will most likely be 157 W.
13900HX outperforms the 12900K and 13700K at up to 5.4 GHz
According to Videocardz, the CPU is said to have been accelerated to a clock speed of 5.4 GHz according to the Geekbench entry, which is said to have been the case with the 13900HX in the Razer Blade 18. Therefore, one can assume that this is the maximum clock rate. A Core i9-13980HX was previously accelerated to 5.6 GHz. There shouldn’t be any tangible leaks yet.
The Clevo laptop CPU ran through the single and multi-core tests in Geekbench 5, scoring 2,039 on one core and 20,943 on multiple cores. These results are remarkable in that the Core i9-13900HX is said to be able to keep up with even high-end desktop CPUs from Intel. According to Videocardz, the mobile processor is faster than a Core i9-12900K on one core and faster than the fresh Core i7-13700K in the multi-core test.
Matching: Intel Roadmap 2023: This will come in the first half of the year
Since the HX models in the laptop lineup are tuned for maximum performance, they contain only a few GPU cores – 32 in number – and should therefore not be used without a discrete and powerful GPU. Fittingly, Intel’s 13th Gen laptop CPUs could debut at the same time as Nvidia’s laptop GPUs. Meanwhile, all eyes are on CES 2023, which will be held in Las Vegas just days after the New Year. A presentation of the chips can almost certainly be expected there.
