At the Intel Innovation event on September 27th, the processor giant revealed its latest 13th Generation Core processor family. The chips are powered by Intel’s performance hybrid architecture and come in six new unlocked variants for desktop applications.

The new lineup is headed by the monstrous Core i9-13900K and Core i9-13900KF, which utilize 24 cores for a total of 20 threads. The “E” cores sport a base frequency of 2.2Ghz, while the “P” cores max out at 3.0Ghz — though the turbo frequency can push those numbers to 4.3Ghz and 5.8Ghz, respectively. In terms of power draw, both top-of-the-line processors are rated at 125W, with max power topping out at 253W.

The range is codenamed “Raptor Lake“, and Intel claims that the entire family of processors will offer users up to a 15% increase in single-threaded performance and up to a 41% increase in multi-threaded performance compared to the outgoing 12th generation.

Speaking of the rest of the Raptor Lake family, two i7 and two i5 processors will also feature in the lineup, with K and KF variants of each, with the latter not supporting integrated graphics.

There’s also some good news for system builders and serial upgraders: Although limited to a max speed of 5600Mhz, DDR4 RAM will still be supported by the new processors, which also use the same LGA1700 socket configuration — meaning Z690 and Z790 motherboard owners can sample the power of Raptor Lake without the need for a complete system refresh.

As for laptop users, Intel has confirmed that the new 13th Gen processors will be finding their way into portable PCs in the near future, sticking to the familiar naming convention of U, P, H, and HX. The new 13th Gen Raptor Lake range will hit stores from October 20th, though there’s no word on availability levels as yet.
