Intel’s upcoming 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs have been examined within the Factoio, a top-down sim builder sport however the efficiency lacks severely towards AMD’s Ryzen 3D V-Cache chips.
Intel 14th Gen CPUs Present Minimal Beneficial properties Over thirteenth Gen Chips Whereas Being Outrightly Overwhelmed By AMD’s Ryzen 3D V-Cache Chips
The benchmarks come from of us over at Computerbase who’ve compiled the numbers for numerous chips together with Intel 14th Gen CPUs, thirteenth Gen CPUs, and AMD Ryzen 7000, Ryzen 5000 3D V-Cache chips. The 14th Gen chips embody the Core i91-4900K, Core i7-14700K & Core i5-14600K. All of those CPUs are anticipated to launch subsequent week and we all know just about all the things there’s about these chips, the truth is, they’re already being bought to clients forward of launch as reported right here.
Coming to the benchmarks, Factorio is not in any respect a really graphics or CPU-intensive title & largely has a 2D look to it with sure 3D parts. With that stated, the sport makes use of a metric referred to as UPS, or Updates Per Second which primarily determines how briskly a processor can run calculations. The upper the UPS, the quicker your factories will be capable to run in real-life seconds in comparison with a decrease UPS charge.
So when it comes to efficiency, the 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh Desktop CPUs appear to supply a really minuscule improve over the thirteenth Gen chips. The Core i9-14900K finally ends up +3.7% quicker than the i9-13900K, the Core i7-14700K finally ends up +6.8% quicker than the i7-13700K whereas the Core i5-14600K finally ends up +1.2% quicker than the i5-13600K. However the outlet additionally in contrast the chips towards the AMD Ryzen 7000 & Ryzen 5000 3D V-Cache chips and it is an onslaught.
- Intel Core i9 14900K vs Core i9-13900K – +3.7%
- Intel Core i7-14700K vs Core i7-13700K – +6.8%
- Intel Core i5-14600K vs Core i5-13600K – +1.2%
The AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D finally ends up being 63% quicker than the Intel Core i9-14900K, the quickest 14th Gen CPU, whereas the Ryzen 7 5800X3D finally ends up being 23% quicker than the 14th Gen flagship. It is a huge efficiency distinction and one risk of resembling big efficiency distinction will be as a result of 3D V-Cache know-how that this sport may profit from. There are not any non-D 3D V-Cache chips in contrast right here so we won’t say for positive if it is the 3D V-Cache tech that is providing this uplift or if it is one thing else. A basic optimization in direction of AMD CPUs may additionally be the case however there isn’t any particular point out by Factorio devs to have optimized a sure vendor’s CPUs.
Official Intel slides have proven a median +2.56% efficiency distinction between the Core i9-14900K and the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. These outcomes had been compiled by way of numerous video games with the 14900K beating the 7950X3D by as much as +23% and in addition dropping to it by round -23%. In actuality, the i9-14900K will find yourself being just about the identical because the 13900K however with some enhancements in functions that profit from increased clock speeds.
