Core i9 13900KF processor, the best processor for overclocking

Core i9 13900KF processor, the best processor for overclocking

Recently, the German media Igor’sLAB has evaluated the overclocking potential of different models and published the results during an extensive research and review on Intel’s Raptor Lake processors. As it seems, the 24-core processor without internal graphics Core i9 13900KF It has the highest overclocking potential among Raptor Lake processors.

Testing silicon quality on 480 Raptor Lake processors

This test has been done using the performance prediction model data used in Asus motherboards. Using the voltage/frequency curve of each processor device, this model determines a quality index for silicon quality and overclocking potential. This index cannot be used to compare different models from different series, but it defines the distribution of high-quality chips among a large number of chips from the same model to a good extent.

Just to remind you, a few weeks ago Igor published a report comparing Core i9 13900K and Core i9 13900KF processors. The new report also focuses on Core i7 13700K and Core i5 13600K processors and their KF versions. In total, 480 Raptor Lake processors participated in this test, which is the largest sampling of Raptor Lake processors to date.

Why are silicones handpicked?

Raptor Lake B0 platform, used in K series processors

All six of Intel’s 13th generation K-series processors are based on the same platform and the same silicon called B0, which has up to 8 P cores and 15 E cores, and depending on how many of the 24 cores of each B0 silicon are healthy, the model for which the silicon is It is used to be determined. For example, if only one of the 8 P cores of B0 silicon is defective, that silicon cannot be used for Core i9 and Core i7 processors. The same is true for E-cores – silicon with only one defective E-core cannot be used in 24-core Core i9 processors.

The philosophy behind the F series processors is the same, and it goes back to the silicon B0 graphics processing cores. If even one of the 32 EU silicon units fails, the entire internal graphics suite including the rest of the healthy units will all be disabled and the silicon used in the F-series processors.

As we said, Igor’s data was collected using the voltage/frequency curve analysis of each processor. In each processor, the lower the voltage required to reach a certain frequency, the higher the quality of its silicon and naturally, the higher its overclocking potential.

i9 13900KF processor, the best processor for overclocking

The most interesting thing to glean from Igor’s research is that Intel apparently intentionally limited the Core i9 13900K to make room for the 6GHz Core i9 13900KS, which costs $110 just for the 200MHz boost. It is more expensive than i9 13900K! According to the results of the above charts, the Core i9 13900KF processor is the best processor for overclocking, and its average silicon quality index is higher than all six 13th generation K series processors.
