Intel’s 13th generation desktop processors are part of its Raptor Lake family and are manufactured using 10nm with x86 hybrid architecture. The company claims that the new processors have up to 15 percent better single-threaded performance and up to 41 percent better multi-threaded performance than previous generation processors.
In addition to the i9-13900k and Core i5-13600KF, other CPUs in the lineup include the Intel Core i9-13900KF, Core i7-13700K, Core i7-13700KF and Core i5-13600K. It is important to note that the ‘K’ and ‘F’ variants differ only in the sense that the F variants do not have Intel’s UHD graphics onboard.
Intel claims its new Core i9-13900K flagship processor is the world’s fastest desktop processor with clock speeds of up to 5.8 GHz with 24 cores and 32 threads. Intel says it can deliver 15 percent better single-threaded performance than the previous generation processor.
Apart from this, Intel is also releasing the latest 700 series chipset motherboards that support DDR5 RAM (DDR5-5600 and DDR5-5200) and come with advanced functionalities for better reliability and increased performance. 22 CPUs will be available from Intel and they will work with motherboards with 600 or recently unveiled 700 chipsets.
Intel 700 series chipset motherboards have backward compatibility, increased USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20Gbps) ports, DMI Gen 4.0 and PCIe Gen 5.0 support, 16 lanes from the processor.
