CPU Benchmark Performance: Science

Our Science section covers all the tests that typically resemble more scientific-based workloads and instruction sets. For our 2023 CPU suite, we've also added SciMark 2.0 which measures numerical kernels and various computational routines found in numeric coding.

We are using DDR5-4800 memory on the Intel Core i3-13100F as per the JEDEC specifications. Other recent chips, such as Intel's 13th/12th Gen Core series and Ryzen 7000 processors, are also tested at the rated JEDEC specifications. We tested the aforementioned platforms with the following settings:

  • DDR5-5600B CL46 - Intel 13th Gen
  • DDR5-5200 CL44 - Ryzen 7000
  • DDR5-4800 (B) CL40 - Intel 12th Gen
  • DDR5-4800 (B) CL40 - Intel 13th Gen Core i3 series

All other CPUs such as Ryzen 5000 and 3000 were tested at the relevant JEDEC settings as per the processor's individual memory support with DDR4.

AMD's support for AVX-512 instruction sets with its Ryzen 7000 processors and Intel's decision to omit this in its desktop processors for its 12th and 13th Gen Core series chips means that the Ryzen 5 7600, already overpowered in this fight, excels even in this area in comparison to the Core i3-13100F.

Otherwise, as expected, both the Core i3-13100F and the previous Core i3-12300 perform similarly to each other. This also means the Ryzen 5300G gets left behind in most testing; there's only so far AMD can get on more limited clockspeeds and cache.

    I think if you're stressing the low-budget use case for these CPUs, you should test using their bundled CPU heatsink/fan just like most budget builders would do.

    It'd be nice to know if builders must budget for an additional $25+ cooler if the included one isn't up to the task.

    Agreed, e.g. Wraith Stealth can technically dissipate 88W from a 7600 but it's a challenge - I got better (~101W) from a Noctua NH-L9a with the fan duct add-on, and up to 110W with another 92x25mm fan blowing into the duct. Intel has a larger area to dissipate from, so would be interesting to compare.

    In the first table, the Base W number for the i3-13100T should be 35W instead of 58W.
