Yesterday, Intel officially unveiled its 13th generation desktop processors. This series is codenamed Raptor Lake and currently includes 3 new CPU models and each model comes in 2 different variants. Intel claims that the 13th generation processors will perform up to 15% and 41% better than the 12th generation processors in terms of single-threaded and multi-threaded processing respectively.

The new Core i9-13900K processor is the most advanced member of this family, and the model without iGPU is named 13900KF. The Core i9-13900K processor continues to use the 12th generation hybrid architecture design and is equipped with 8 P cores along with 16 E cores and a total of 32 processing threads (E cores do not support hyperthreading). This processor is equipped with 32 MB of L2 cache and 36 MB of Intel intelligent cache known as L3. The frequency of P and E cores can be increased to 5.8 and 4.3 GHz, respectively. The basic power consumption in this CPU is equal to 125 watts and its maximum power consumption will be equal to 253 watts.

Official retail pricing for any of these processors has yet to be announced; But the suggested price for customers is actually the figure that retailers pay per 1000 pieces. This index is equal to $589 for the 13900K processor and $564 for the 13900KF model. However, the final pricing of the processors will be slightly higher than the announced figures.

The other model is called 13700K. This processor is equipped with 8 P cores and 8 E cores, and the total number of processing threads is 24. This CPU has 24 MB of L2 cache and 30 MB of L3 cache. The maximum processing frequency for P and E cores is 5.4 and 4.2 GHz, respectively. The basic power consumption for this processor is equal to 125 watts, and this figure will reach a maximum of 253 watts in turbo mode. The customer suggested pricing for the 13700K processor is $409 and this figure will be reduced to $384 for the 13700KF model.

Finally, the third model has been named 13600K. This processor is equipped with 6 P cores along with 8 E cores, and the total number of processing threads in it is equal to 20. This processor is equipped with 20 MB L2 cache and 24 MB L3 cache. The frequency of the P and E cores can be upgraded to a maximum of 5.1 and 3.9 GHz, respectively. The basic power consumption for this CPU is equal to 125 watts and this figure reaches a maximum of 181 watts in turbo mode. The customer suggested pricing for the 13600K processor is $319 and this figure will be reduced to $294 for the 13600KF model.

All 6 models are equipped with 20 PCIe lanes (including up to 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes and 4 PCIe 4.0 lanes) for the CPU and support DDR5 memory with a frequency of 5600 MHz and DDR4 memory with a frequency of 3200 MHz. It is also possible to support faster memories via XMP. The 13700K, 13600K and 13900K models are all equipped with Intel UHD Graphics 770.

Intel’s 13th generation processors will be available on motherboards with the new Z790 chipset. Some of these motherboards were introduced during the last day. The new processors will also be compatible with older 600 series motherboards. The sale of new processors and motherboards will begin on October 20 (October 28).
