A few months ago, Intel updated the official overclocking software Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) to prepare for the upcoming 13th generation Core (Raptor Lake). Three new functions have been added for overclocking of new platforms in the future, including support for adding per-Core OC TVB, package OC TVB and Efficient TVB. Later, when Intel made a technical introduction in Israel, it confirmed that the frequency of Raptor Lake can reach 6GHz, becoming the first retail x86 processor to reach 6GHz.
Recently, Twitter user @momomo_us discovered that a Canadian retailer has listed a series of unreleased 13th-generation Core processors. The Intel Core i9-13900KS appeared, and it is unclear whether the maximum power consumption limit will be higher than the Core i9-13900K. It uses the best Raptor Lake-S chip, and the displayed price is 971.99 Canadian dollars, which is 22% higher than the Core i9-13900K on the same platform. Of course, this price is not necessarily the final official retail price, or it may just be filled in temporarily.
It is rumored that AMD is preparing a Zen 4 architecture chip with 3D V-Cache technology to further improve game performance, and the corresponding Ryzen 7000X3D series is likely to debut at the CES 2023 exhibition. Intel Core i9-13900KS will compete with the Ryzen 7000X3D series.
