So I’ve one other update for our readers at this time. A fast overview of Intel’s upcoming thirteenth technology CPU lineup. Intel will probably be asserting Raptor Lake on the twenty seventh of September with the Sales Embargo set to carry on the twentieth of October. While the dates could move round a bit relying on Intel’s needs, the specs are roughly set in stone (barring any slight clock charge ups or downs). Raptor Lake goes to be a really attention-grabbing update from Intel and from what I’ve been advised, will take the efficiency crown for this technology.

Intel unleashing the raptors: Core i9 13900k flagship may have 24 cores (8+16), 5.5 GHz all P-core turbo and Arc A780h built-in GPU

Intel is making ready a complete of 14 SKUs for this launch. Firstly you have got the six vanilla SKUs: Core i9 13900k, Core i7 13700K, Core i5 13600k, Core i9 13900, Core i7 13700 and Core i5 13400. Five of those SKUs function the Arc A780h built-in graphics which has 32 EUs and clock speeds ranging between 1.6 GHz to 1.55 GHz. Intel is offering the flexibility to overclock the built-in GPU for the Ok sequence CPUs. The Core i5 13400 is the one CPU on this batch that has an Arc A782h GPU with a lower down engine of 24 EUs and a clock velocity of 1.55 GHz.

This lineup ranges between a TDP of 125W for the Ok-series and 65W for the non-Ok sequence (though the burst wattage will probably be considerably increased than 125W except capped) and have clock configurations of 24 cores by 10 cores. The flagship Core i9 13900K has 8 P-cores and 16 E-cores whereas the Core i5 13400 has 6 P-cores and 4 E-cores. 5 out of 6 of the CPUs on this lineup assist DDR4 reminiscence as much as 3200 MHz and DDR5 as much as 5600 MHz.

The Core i3 solely helps DDR5 as much as 4800 MHz. Of course IMC OC is supported so you need to use reminiscence with a lot increased clock speeds for all of those. The Core i9 13900K has a cache dimension of 36 MB whereas the Core i5 13400 has a cache dimension of 20 MB. The socket is LGA1700 and ECC assist is current for all SKUs besides the Core i7 13700 and the Core i5 13400. The precise core breakdowns with clock velocity tiers are given within the desk under.

Up subsequent we now have the KF and F sequence CPUs which don’t comprise an built-in GPU (and can subsequently be barely cheaper in worth). All F sequence SKUs are principally an identical to their non-F counterparts aside from the removing of the iGPU and the removing of ECC assist.

Lastly we now have the T-series CPUs that are Intel’s low energy selection. The Core i9 13900T and Core i7 13700T have a base TDP of simply 35W and are designed for enterprise functions. This is why each have ECC assist and an iGPU. The clock speeds are barely extra conservative because of the decreased TDP and GPU OC assist isn’t current. Interestingly the iGPU is clocked at 1.6 GHz for each SKUs and adaptive increase is current within the Core i9 13900T.

Initial efficiency testing reveals Intel has a profitable product on their arms with an absolute beast of a CPU that ought to take the efficiency crown this technology. However, similar to final gen, the TDP numbers could be deceptive because the burst wattage will probably be considerably increased than acknowledged. The flagship CPU can simply have bursts of as much as twice that of the bottom TDP earlier than calming right down to PL1. We are additionally anticipating extraordinarily aggressive pricing from Intel as AMD may also be launching its seventh technology Ryzen CPUs in roughly the identical time interval. So whichever camp you’re in, this is able to symbolize a good time to improve when you have been holding out.
