Till now, we’ve all been wondering what would be Intel’s move while marketing their following next-gen Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs. However, the question remains, “Will Intel still have a prognostic advantage over the new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, or are they destined towards another year behind the market’s leading shareholders?” 

Thanks to Igor’sLAB, we know exactly what the upcoming Core series will offer. Specifications for six processors from the Intel 13th Gen Raptor lake lineup have been leaked, all about the K or the KF-series. This means that at first, only these SKUs will launch, followed by the rest.

Intel 13th Gen Core Specifications

The leaked official sheet suggests that the Intel Core i9-13900K and Core i9-13900KF will support up to 5.8GHz clocks, thanks to its Thermal Velocity Boost technology. It will also have a lower than expected MTP (Maximum Turbo Power) of 235W.

Furthermore, both processors will feature 24-Cores (16 Efficient and 8 Performance Cores). Both new flagship processors will be able to support 5600MHz DDR5 and 3200MHz DDR4 memory.

Intel 12th Gen Vs 13th Gen

The Intel i7-13700K will feature 16 cores (8 Performance and 8 Efficient Cores) and a Boost Clock of 5.4Ghz. However, this processor won’t support the Thermal Velocity Boost Technology like the Core-i9 series SKUs. It has almost the identical MTP as the Core-i9, coming in at 253W.

The Intel Core-i5-13600K and Core i5-13600KF will have 14 Cores (6 Performance and 8 Efficient Cores) and will boost up to 5.1GHz. Another downside here is that, unlike the Core-i7 series, the Core-i5 SKUs won’t have support for Turbo Boost Max 3.0. Both new Core-i5 processors under the Intel 13th Gen Raptor lake platform will have a TDP of 125W.

Moreover, with the introduction of Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors, it will be vital to see what the Z790 platform holds for us. The Intel 13th Gen will offer support for faster DDR5 memory. On the other side,  Intel has not added support for any additional PCIe 5.0 lanes to their motherboard lineup. Most Z790 series motherboards may not support PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs. 

Intel’s following lineup of their Core Series processors will hit shelves on September 27th at their next Innovation Event.
