Earlier than addressing the outcomes, let me simply say that I used to be working the most recent accessible BIOS for every system once I carried out these 3DMark benchmarks, together with AGESA 18.104.22.168 Patch A on our MSI X670E ACE motherboard (BIOS v1.25). The methods had been outfitted with the very same DDR5-6000 CL30 reminiscence, working the identical construct of Home windows 11 Professional, and had the identical NVIDIA drivers put in (the most recent, GRD 522.25).
Sure, the margins are fairly slim. The outcomes above are every the results of three runs, averaged – apart from Pace Means, which was so shut I ended up working it 5 instances on every system, averaging the very best three scores from every. Pace Means continues to be throughout the margin of error, and might be thought-about a tie – because it ought to, contemplating will probably be utterly GPU certain.
When not GPU certain, plainly Intel’s Core i9-13900K actually has the potential to supply higher efficiency in video games than the Ryzen 9 7950X. Time Spy is the closest approximation of a extra CPU-bound state of affairs within the above chart, however what about an actual sport?
Having dropped Cyberpunk 2077 from the benchmark suite after its buggy efficiency for myself and different reviewers on the RTX 4090 launch, I made a decision to re-visit a dependable benchmark with the RTX 4090 FE, and Metro Exodus is as dependable because it will get (there’s a standalone benchmark app and also you don’t even should be on-line for it to work!).
As with the 3DMark assessments above, the Core i9-13900K battles the Ryzen 9 7950X utilizing our GeForce RTX 4090 FE card and the most recent driver:
