Possible Intel 13th Gen Core pricing in UK

Intel next-gen Intel desktop CPUs are to be unveiled next week, but apparently is not stopping large retailers from listing the series sooner.

Over at Amazon UK, it was possible to find a number of Raptor Lake processors listed earlier. A total of four SKUs have been discovered by hardware leaker @momomo_us who was quick to take a screenshot. Those listings are no longer available.

According to this list, the i9-13900KF (the flagship model without integrated graphics) is to cost 750 GBP. This SKU is the only one with full 24 core (8P+16E) that has been listed thus far. This pricing is around 150 GBP higher than i9-12900K at launch in UK (according to UK reviews), but the current price of i9-12900KF is around 609 GBP. It is worth noting that 750 GBP is a similar price to i9-12900KS (the special edition with 5.5 GHz clock) at its launch day.

Meanwhile, the i7-13700K is listed at 547 GBP and its F-variant at 517 GBP. Compared to the current price of Alder Lake successor, we are looking at 120-137 GBP higher price (i7-12700K costs ~410 GBP, while i7-12700KF costs ~397 GBP). Finally, the 14-core SKU known as i5-13600KF has been listed at 350 GBP, which is again higher price than i7-12500KF currently available at 273 GBP.

There is a good chance that these are not final prices of 13th Gen Core series in the UK, but simply a placeholder. Furthermore, the fact that such a large retailer has begun listing the new series this early, could suggest that Intel will lift the pre-order embargo very soon. Possibly, right after its Innovation event where Raptor Lake series are to be announced (September 27th).

In case there was any doubt about the packaging of the new series, @momomo_us has also leaked the design for all three sub-series. They are look just about same as Alder Lake boxes. It is worth mentioning though that the flagship SKU known as i9-13900K will come with a small plastic wafer inside (as pictured earlier in this post).
