Intel recently introduced the new 13th generation T-series chips with a Core i9-13900T processor with a TDP of 35W. The new chip has been tested in Geekbench 5 and shows impressive performance given its limited power budget.
Starting from the specifications, the Intel Core i9-13900T is a limited TDP variation of the Core i9-13900 series. While the standard chips have a TDP of 125W when unlocked and 65W in non-K models, the T-series chips are limited to a TDP of 35W. The unlocked processor is rated up to 253W, the non-K is rated up to 219W, and the T-series chip is rated up to 106W, which is less than half the power consumption of its more expensive brethren.
The Intel Core i9-13900T retains the same core configuration with 24 cores, which consist of 8 P cores and 16 E cores with 32 threads, a base clock of 1.10 GHz, boost up to 5.30 GHz, and 68MB of memory. cache (L2+L3). The CPU is also on sale for a lower price of $549. The processor is now being tested in Geekbench 5 using the ASUS TUF Gaming B660M-PLUS WIFI board and 64GB of DDR5 memory.
The processor scored 2178 points in single-core and 17339 points in multi-core tests. In comparison, the Intel Core i9-12900K scored 1901 in the single-core test and 17272 in the multi-core test. This makes the Intel Core i9-13900T 15% faster in single-core and slightly faster in multi-threaded tests, which is very impressive considering the Core i9-12900K also has a higher base TDP of 125W (3.58x higher) and peak . TDP rating of 241W (2.27 times higher).

This is indicative of the tremendous performance of Intel’s 10nm ESF process and the new hybrid architecture, and we’ll also see some similar results with the mobile lineup, especially with the 13th Gen HX components that will be shipping to gaming laptop enthusiasts in the coming months.
