Information about three thirteenth-generation Core processors (Raptor Lake family) briefly surfaced on the Canadian section of Intel’s website. The data was promptly deleted, but network sources managed to disseminate it.
A page on Intel’s website dedicated to building gaming PCs lists the Core i5-13600K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i9-13900K models. According to the above description, the first of these chips contains 14 computing cores, including six productive and eight energy-efficient. Up to 20 instruction threads can run concurrently. The maximum clock frequency of the production unit is 5.1 GHz.
The Core i7-13700K processor, in turn, has 16 cores – eight productive and energy-efficient. Up to 24 instruction threads can run simultaneously. The clock frequency reaches 5.3 GHz.
Finally, the older model, Core i9-13900K, combines 24 cores – eight productive and 16 energy efficient. The number of command streams reaches 32. The maximum frequency of the productive node is 5.4 GHz.
It should be noted that the older chip also supports Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB) technology, which allows two productive cores to be overclocked to 5.8 GHz.
The official announcement of the processors of the Raptor Lake generation is scheduled for September 27 – it will take place as part of the Intel Innovation Event.
