The cores and threads of a processor decide the performance and speed of a CPU. The greater the number of cores and threads more is the performance of the processor.
In our case, the Intel Core i7-13700k has more cores and threads. Thus, core i7-13700k would deliver better performance in respect of cores and threads.
Base and Turbo clocks of processorBase clock: 3.4 GHz
Turbo clock: Up to 5.4 GHz
Base clock: 4.5 GHz
Turbo clock: Up to 5.4 GHz
For better-operating speed of a processor, the clock needs to be higher.
The base clock of the Ryzen 7 7700x is 4.5 GHz far greater than 3.4 GHz of core i7-13700k. This indicates that core i7-13700k will have greater speed in basic operations.
However, both have the same turbo frequency of up to 5.4 GHz.
Memory SupportDDR5 + DDR4DDR5Only DDR5 memory can be sustained by the Ryzen 7 7700x. That is a drawback of AMD. DDR4 and DDR5 memory are both supported by Intel's processor. By selecting DDR4, a buyer can save some money. The Ryzen 7 7700x does not offer this choice. Therefore by selecting core i7-13700k, users can use DDR4 to configure the machine to fit their budget.
ArchitectureRaptor LakeZen 4The Raptor lake is the most recent architecture of Intel and Zen 4 is the latest architecture of AMD.
Socket TypeLGA 1700AM5(LGA 1718)LGA 1700 of Intel was launched in the last quarter of 2021 and it contains 1700 extending pins for connections with the pads on the processor. While AM4 the newly launched socket of AMD has 1718 extending pins for connections with the pads on the processor.
Caches size30 MB32 MBThe caches size of the Ryzen 7 7700x is 32 MB larger than the 30 MB of core i7-13700k. The bigger cache size helps in extending the performance and rapid recoupment of data.
Temperature100 °C95 °CThe Intel core i7-13700k operates at a higher maximum temperature than the Ryzen 7 7700x. Consequently, the core i7-13700k CPU performs better in high temperatures than Ryzen (Highly demanding operations that increase the temperature of a CPU).
Power125-253 watts105 wattsThe Intel core i7-13700k has a turbo power of 253 watts, greatly above the peak power of 105 watts for the Ryzen 7 7700x. The core i7-13700k's increased power suggests that it can perform and operate more quickly. On the other hand, when it comes to the cost of electricity, if Intel core i7-13700k is to run at turbo power, this cost would be higher. Even the core i7-13700k operating at base power would cost more than Ryzen 7 7700x.
