Intel Core i9-13980HX Spotted: 24 Core Mobile CPU with a Boost Clock of 5.6GHz [Report]

Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake-HX mobile flagship has surfaced over at the Geekbench 5 database for the first time. Featuring 8 “Raptor Cove” P-cores and 16 “Gracemont” E-cores, it’ll be the first notebook chip to boost up to 5.6GHz. We already know about the Core i9-13900HX, Core i7-13700HX, Core i5-13xx0HX, and Core i3-13450HX. These high-performance notebook CPUs are derivatives of the Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, Core i5-13600K, 13500, and 13400.

The Core i9-13980HX will be the mobile equivalent of the i9-13900KS with a TDP of 55W or higher. The chip in the above benchmark underperforms for unknown reasons, leveling with the recently leaked 13900HX. It should be 5-10% faster than the latter across most single and multi-core workloads. (zolpidem buy australia) The Core i9-13980HX will be a better-binned 13900HX with the same core and cache configuration, much like the 13900KS-13900K duo.

In addition to doubling the L2 cache per P-core and twice as many E-cores, the Core i9-13980HX boosts 600MHz higher than its predecessor. Even if AMD rolls out 16-core mobile designs with Dragon Range, Intel will probably hold onto the crown. After all, they are repurposed Raphael chips with lower clocks and won’t hold up well against Raptor Lake-S derivatives.
