Intel i7-13700T Benchmarks Shows Performance Nearly on Par with the i5-12600K

While the primary focus of Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake processors is undoubtedly being placed on their mainstream desktop models, it shouldn’t be ignored that many consumers will likely be far more interested in their upcoming T-series designs. Specifically created to operate at low power levels (TDP of circa 35W), the T-series will clearly represent an interesting proposition to those who enjoy dabbling in the world of small form factor system design.
With such a low power draw though, will they actually be any good? Well, following a report via Videocardz, leaked benchmarks from the Intel i7-13700T have appeared online and, based upon the scores, it would appear to offer a level of comparative performance nearly on par with the i5-12600K.
Intel i7-13700T – Low Power, But High Performance
Now admittedly, on the surface of things, this might not sound too impressive. A next-gen CPU performing about on par with the last-gens lower-tier model, right? – Well, in this regard you do have to remember that the i7-13700T is a low-power design. The i5-12600K offers a significantly higher TDP of 125W meaning that despite the fact that the i7-13700T requires less than a third of the power (35W), its single-core performance is roughly on par with the i5-12600K while its multi-core performance only falls slightly behind.
Put simply, is proven accurate, then this is incredibly impressive stuff and for those of you with one eye on your next SFF system creation, the i7-13700T is definitely looking set to represent a solid choice!
