The Intel Core i5-13500 offers an interesting mix of performance and value that will likely capture the attention of savvy PC builders providing its MSRP of $235 USD holds true. The 13500 features the same 6 P-cores and 8 E-cores as the i5-13600K, which currently retails for $320 USD. However, it has a lower boost clock frequency (4.8 GHz versus 5.1 GHz) and less cache (35.5 MB versus 44 MB) which translates to a 10% performance disadvantage against the 13600K. Nevertheless, paired with a B660 motherboard and inexpensive DDR4, the 20 thread i5-13500, is a very capable mid-range processor for both gaming and multi-threaded tasks. Compared to AMD’s similarly priced, hex-core Ryzen 5 7600 and 7600X, the 13500 offers better gaming and 50% faster multi-core performance which is particularly beneficial to workstation and professional users. Intel has completely priced AMD's 7000 series CPUs out of the rational market. Despite this, as long as Intel continues to sample and sponsor marketers that are mostly funded by AMD, they will struggle to win market share. [Jan '23 CPUPro]

Gaming is more accessible with the i3-12100F: Intel’s entry level Alder Lake desktop processor. Higher end Alder Lake processors feature a combination of performance and efficiency cores, however, the 12100F contains just four hyper-threaded Golden Cove performance cores. It has a max boost frequency of 4.3 GHz, 12 MB of L3 cache and a 58W TDP. The 12100F is keenly priced at around $130 USD and needs to be paired with a new chipset such as the B660. Only users with discrete GPUs should consider “F” models as they do not have integrated graphics. Whilst a budget PC built around the 12100F represents unbeatable value for money, the 6-core i5-12400F, with 50% stronger multi-core, is a better option for gamers with 3060+ tier GPUs. AMD do not have any CPUs competing in this price segment. Entry level gamers, who cannot find reasonably priced discrete GPUs, could consider the similarly performing Ryzen 5 5600G APU which has integrated RX Vega graphics that are around three times faster than Intel's UHD 730. [Jan '22 CPUPro]

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
