Intel Self-Leaks Upcoming thirteenth Gen i5, i7, i9 CPU Specs

Intel by chance dropped particulars for its upcoming slate of desktop processors on its Canadian website, and although the corporate was fast to drag the specs, the Web Archive has your again for these trying to see the unique model.

The Intel Core i5-13600K’s taking a look at 14 cores and 20 threads whereas pushing as much as 5.1 Ghz max frequency. The i7-13700K is 16 cores to 24 threads and 5.3 GHz, whereas the i9-13900K is rocking 24 cores, 32 threads and a 5.4 GHz frequency. With Turbo Enhance Max 3.0 or Thermal Velocity Enhance, assuming you’ve the suitable energy and cooling, you’ll have the ability to push to even excessive GHz counts.

These numbers aren’t too shocking, however they do assist affirm earlier leaks. In leaked slides proven on igor’sLAB, the thirteenth gen CPUs beforehand appeared to have scaled cores and threads in comparison with the twelfth gen. Intel has promised that, together with the speeds proven right here, it’s additionally elevated the L2 cache and L3 Intel Sensible Cache on i5K processors and above. In fact, the brand new chipsets will assist CPU PCIe 5.0 interfaces as much as 16 lanes and proceed facilitating DDR5 and DDR4 RAM, although they will now go as much as DDR5-5600 in comparison with the twelfth gen’s restrict of DDR5-4800. The beforehand leaked SKU chart slide offers rundown of what’s happening right here.

Past the eye-catching boasts of elevated cores and threads, there isn’t a giant killer function right here over what’s on the present twelfth gen Alder Lake sequence, which made waves by introducing DDR5 assist. In our personal evaluation of the twelfth gen chips, we already felt Alder Lake was fairly damned future-proof, supporting PCIe Gen5 and Thunderbolt 4. And contemplating you’ll must drop between $280 to $590 for any of the brand new mid-to-high finish CPUs, these hybrid chips are going to be a giant ask for a lot of customers on the market.

And, after all, AMD has already rolled as much as the nook, placing Intel on blast with its personal upcoming Zen 4 CPU lineup, obtainable on the finish of this month. AMD’s claiming that its 7000 sequence chips may also permit enhance clocks of over 5 Ghz to match Intel, in addition to assist for PCIe5 and DDR5. It’s arduous to evaluate their speeds versus Intel CPUs simply based mostly on cores and clock speeds, as we’re solely working with pre-release materials. What’s most essential is pricing, with the very best finish Ryzen 9 7950X costing $699 at launch. A top-of-the-line Core i9-12900K runs over $100 cheaper, so eyes are on Intel for the way it costs Raptor Lake.

AMD additionally gained’t have a 7800X CPU at launch, Sept. 27, which implies that when it does ultimately put out its mid-range CPU model, it’ll seemingly compete extra with Intel’s thirteenth gen then it is going to with the twelfth gen. And because you’ll seemingly must improve your motherboard to assist this new slate of gaming-ready CPUs, customers can have an excellent larger resolution to make.

There’s some argument for additional future-proofing your laptop {hardware}, however we nonetheless don’t know pricing for these upcoming thirteenth gen processors or their launch window. That, in my thoughts, goes to be the principle deciding consider whether or not there’s any cause to carry off upgrading when you haven’t already gone for a twelfth gen and also you’re completely set on Intel CPUs. And if you have already got dropped a number of Benjamins on new chips, I’ve severe doubts that digging deeper into your pockets for the thirteenth gen will outcome within the form of efficiency features that demand spending much more immediately.
