The good news for existing the Alder Lake owners is that upgrading to this CPU platform shouldn't be a problem.

InTel core i9-13900

Intel Core I9-13900 processor will feature a remarkable boost to multi-threaded performance.

It features 8 performance cores and a whopping 16 efficient cores, twice that of it's predecessor, the i9-12900. The i9-13900 is 20% faster on average compared to 19-12900 processor 

The notable differences are a new microarchitecture for the P cores. Codenamed the Raptor cove and an increased amount of L2 and L3 cache memories.

It gives us a total of 32MB of L2 cache which combined with L3 cache will offer us a total of 68MB of cache.

Both intel corei9-13900 'rAPTOR LAKE' PROCESSOR and intel core i9-12900 'Alder lake' processoRs wEre tested on the z690 platform.

An Intel Core i9-13900i9-13900 and Intel Core i9-12900 processor were tested on the Z690 platform with DDR5-5200 memory and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card.

Overall, we can expect a 30-40% boost in multi-thread workloads. Much like AMD's Ryzen 7000 offerings.
