Recently, tests have been conducted to compare the performance of Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake chips against the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series, one of which is the Blender benchmark. In this test, Intel Core i7-13700K competes with Ryzen 9 7900X, and Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600K are also placed against Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 7 7600X.
If you are not familiar with Blender, this software is a powerful and open-source tool that provides users with features such as 3D rendering, video editing, modeling, animation, special effects, and more, and therefore puts a lot of pressure on the central processor and graphics of the systems. Which makes it a great tool for benchmarking.
At the top of the Blender benchmark list is the 16-core giant AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, which managed to score 607.53. Intel’s Core i9 13900K chip is in second place on this list and has scored 557.66. The third place belongs to Ryzen 9 7900X, which scored 462.39. Core i7 13700K is next with a score of 429.7, followed by Core i5 13600K with a score of 358.18. The Ryzen 7 7700X chip with a score of 305.51 and Ryzen 7 7600X with a score of 234.65 are in the next positions of the list.

Blender’s benchmark performance is very exciting and shows how much Intel’s hybrid microarchitecture can now help boost the power of the RaptorLake series.
written by TomsHardware, AMD Ryzen 9 series chips are the only options that can beat Intel’s Raptor Lake processors in multi-core workloads. In fact, the Ryzen 9 7950X is about 9% faster than the Core i9 13900K, and the Ryzen 9 7900X is 7.6% faster than the Core i7 13700K.
Considering Intel’s pricing strategy, the results obtained from the company’s 13th generation chips are not so great. For example, the Core i9 13900K is about $50 cheaper than the Ryzen 7050X, and the Core i7 13700K is about $100 cheaper than the Ryzen 7900X.
Technically, the Blender benchmark results for the Intel Core i7 13700K correspond to the older version of this benchmark, i.e. 3.2.1, while the other chips were tested with version 3.3 of this benchmark. According to Foronics, version 3.2.1 has slower benchmarks compared to version 3.3, which means that the Core i7 13700K will probably perform faster with version 3.3.
By offering Core i7 13700K and Core i5 13600K chips in competition with Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5, Intel defeats its competitors in both sectors, and the speed of these two processors is 17% and 15% better than Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X, respectively.
