The Core i5-13500 is Intel's new $250 offering, packing 14 cores, 20 threads and 35.5 MB cache. This is an interesting CPU that packs the larger L3 cache capacity of the Raptor Lake i5's for less.
In a nutshell: A benchmark of the upcoming 56-core Xeon W9-3495X workstation CPU was seen flexing its muscles in Geekbench. The chip achieved a multi-threaded score that is 47% higher than Intel's current Xeon Workstation flagship, the 32-core W-3375.
The previous generation version of the Core i3-13100 was one of our favorite budget CPUs, so we're keen to see what this updated 13th-gen version has to offer.
