Intel will soon launch the 13th Gen Core series desktop processors (Raptor Lake-S), like last year’s 12th-generation Core (Alder Lake-S), the starting lineup will be models with “K” and “KF” suffixes. There are six products: Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, Core i5-13600K, Core i9-13900KF, Core i7-13700KF, and Core i5-13600KF.
Although the approximate specifications of Raptor Lake have been known through various channels in the past few months, there are still individual parameters that have not been determined. At present, Igor’s LAB has obtained the official specifications of the first lineup of the 13th generation Core series desktop processors. The highest-end Core i9-13900K boost clock can reach 5.8GHz, PL2 has also been increased from 241W of the previous generation to 253W, and the supported specifications of DDR5 memory have also been increased to 5600MHz.
Also, the specs of the new-generation Z790 chipset have leaked with little change. Compared to the Z690 chipset, the Z790 chipset increases the number of PCIe 4.0 lanes, from 12 to 20, at the expense of reducing the number of PCIe 3.0 lanes, from 16 to 8, in addition to adding USB 3.2 Gen2x2 ports, up to 5.
