The launch of Intel’s 13th generation CPUs and the sale of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series may conflict.
September 3rd, 2022

Right now, the CPU market is booming. Last year, Intel’s 12th Generation “Alder Lake” processors won us over, and AMD is currently doing the same with its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series “Raphael” CPU4s. But as usual, Intel isn’t ready to completely cede the spotlight to AMD. The Ryzen 7000 series will go on sale on September 27, which just so happens to coincide with Team Blue’s planned announcement of a few SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) of its 13th Gen “Raptor Lake” CPUs during the “Intel Innovation” event.

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs: Rumors

On September 27, the company will announce three SKUs of the 13th Gen CPUs, according to the GTM (Go To Market) roadmap for the Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs that was leaked by Twitter user @wxnod. for Taiwan, September 28.

Along with the Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600K, this also includes the top-of-the-line Core i9-13900K. processors with a “K” suffix. It’s interesting to note that Intel will accept preorders for the Core i9-13900K on the same day, whereas the other two models won’t be available until October 13 at the earliest. On the other hand, they will all be accessible beginning on October 20.

The leaked slide’s final section also appears to confirm that 13th Generation non-K, mobile processors, and other products will all be unveiled by CES 2023. The CES will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, from January 5 through January 8, it should be noted.

We anticipate Intel to also reveal a few new motherboards to complement the new chips. comparable to enthusiast-level Z790, H770, and B760. Anyway, we already know that Raptor Lake and Alder Lake will share the same LGA 1700 socket. That means if you already have a 12th Gen setup, you might not need to buy a new motherboard. Although this suggests that the new Intel processors might support DDR4 memory, nothing is certain as of yet. It’s possible that Intel will make DDR5 the only RAM choice for Raptor Lake, following AMD’s lead.

It’s possible that Intel will make DDR5 the only RAM choice for Raptor Lake, following AMD’s lead.

It will also have an all-core boost frequency of 5.5 GHz and a base frequency of 3 GHz. And thanks to Intel’s Efficient Thermal Velocity Boost (ETVB) technology, the single-core boost frequency can reach 5.7 GHz. matching precisely the boost clock rate of AMD’s top-tier Ryzen 9 7950X CPU. The Core i9-13900K leaks, including some benchmark results, have been discussed in more detail here.

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs: Price

For the time being, it is unknown how much Intel’s new processors will cost. However, given how impressively AMD was able to reduce the price on a few of its most recent processors, we anticipate Intel to do the same. Or at the very least, refrain from raising prices. As a result, the price range for the aforementioned Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs may be between USD 290 and USD 600.
