Intel Takes the Throne: Core i5-13600K CPU Review & Benchmarks vs. AMD Ryzen

Sponsor: Buy the be quiet! Silent Wings 4 Pro fans on Amazon
This review looks at the Intel i5-13600K CPU vs. the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X, Intel i9-13900K, and older Intel and AMD CPUs. Our 13600K benchmarks include power, gaming, production, and more. Intel’s Core i5-13600K should already be released, with pricing more closely tied to the R5 7600X than anything else. This makes the mid-range PC class fiercely competitive now, with a lot of options at around the same pricing, and we expect price drops sometime in the next few months.
