Here are the GPUz screenshots from our testing as well. Our Z690 Extreme died at the end of testing the 13900K and I had to switch over to the smaller ITX Z690I UNIFY for the 13600K. Both were tested with the XMP turned on for the memory, PL1/PL2 settings as well as CPU amperage limits set to Intel’s recommendations (PL1/2 set to 181 on the 13600K and 253 for the 13900K and CPU amps set to 307 for the 13900K and 200 for the 13600K. Both boards had their BIOS updated to the latest at the time of testing to be able to support the new CPUs.
