Intel 13th Gen Core Specs
Igor Wallossek posted official Intel Core specs for Raptor Lake-S series.
No more guesses, the full specs of the upcoming Core series have now been confirmed, thanks to the new leak from Igor’sLAB. The flagship Core i9 series are confirmed to have a TDP up to 253W (Maximum Turbo Power) and support up to 5.8 GHz clocks. Unlike in the previous chart, here we only have six K and KF-series SKUs. This likely means that Intel will be launching only these SKUs, while the rest will be announced later.
Intel Core i9-13900K is confirmed to be 24-core CPU with 8 Performance and 16 Efficient cores. It offers boost up to 5.8 GHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost technology. The CPU also supports DDR5-5600 or DDR4-3200 memory.
Raptor Lake Core i7 (13700K) series will offer 16 cores (8P + 8E) and boost up to 5.4 GHz. Unlike Core i9 series, the i7 won’t support TVB. Interestingly, the same maximum turbo power of 253W is listed here as well.
The i5-13600K and KF models will feature up to 14 cores (6P+8E) and boost up to 5.1 GHz. Compared to i7 series, there is no support for Turbo Boost Max 3.0. The maximum boost power (MTP) is also lower at 181W; however, all CPUs mentioned have the same default 125W TDP.
According to the slides, 13th Gen Core series only introduce faster DDR5-5600 memory support and higher core count. For the Z790 platform, this means increased PCIe Gen4 lanes to 20 at a cost of lower Gen3 lane count.
Intel is expected to launch its new series next month, but the official presentation is now planned for Innovation event on September 27th.
