The Intel Core i5-13400 will have 10 cores and 16 threads, we see the first performance data

A new leak has reiterated the possible specifications of the Intel Core i5-13400, a mid-range processor that will hit the market between the end of this year and the beginning of 2023, and that seems to have everything to become one of the best in its class. This chip will be configured with 6 high-performance cores based on the Raptor Cove architecture, and will also have 4 high-efficiency cores based on the Gracemont architecture.

If we compare it with the Intel Core i5-12400, the differences are very clear, since it has 6 high-performance cores based on the Golden Cove architecture, and lacks high-efficiency cores. In general terms, Intel Core i5-13400 performance should be similar to Intel Core i5-12600K, a chip that has 6 Golden Cove cores and 4 Gracemont cores, and that works at higher working speeds.

The first performance tests point in that direction. As we can see in the attached image, the Intel Core i5-13400 reaches a score of 729.3 in the CPU-Z single-thread test, and reaches 6,591.5 points in the multi-thread test. This puts it just 6% below the Intel Core i5-12600K. It is a very good result, since according to the latest information we have seen the Intel Core i5-13400 will have a working frequency of 2.5GHz-4.6GHzwhile the Intel Core i5-12600K works at 3.7GHz-4.9GHz

Another detail to keep in mind is that the Intel Core i5-13400 It will be cooler and consume less power than Intel Core i5-12600K, since its TDP is fixed at 65 watts, while the “K” model has a TDP of 125 watts. With all this on the table, I think it is quite clear why we have said that this new processor has everything to become one of the best in the mid-range.

We don’t have details on the selling price, but looking at what Intel did with the previous generation I think the Intel Core i5-13400 will most likely be in the range that goes from 200 to 250 euros. If everything we’ve said so far holds true, this chip will be a fantastic choice for affordable yet powerful gaming PCs, as well as streaming and content creation-focused setups on a tight budget.

I remind you, before finishing, that we will also see an “F” version of the Intel Core i5-13400. This will have the iGPU disabled and will be cheaper than the standard version. As happened at the time with the Intel Core i5-12400F, it could become one of the best-selling processors of its generation due to its good price-performance value.
