There are only a few months left for the Intel Raptor Lake to arrive , the 13th generation of Intel processors for gaming that promise to give incredible performance. These will directly face their rival AMD , with its Ryzen 7000 based on the Zen 4 architecture , which also promises to give war. While we wait, what better than to see the specifications of the future Intel Core i5-13600K , Core i7-13700K and Core i9-13900K .
There are still several months left for the new Intel Core 13 processors to hit the market , surpassing the current generation in everything, including consumption . And we are talking about a new architecture, added to an increase in cores and frequencies , so the performance will logically be higher.
So are the specifications of the i9-13900K, i7-13700K and i5-13600K
We start with the specifications of the Intel Core i9-13900K , Raptor Lake’s top-of-the-line processor. This has a total of 24 cores , divided between 8 high performance cores ( P-Core ) and 16 energy efficient cores ( E-Core ), giving rise to 32 threads . While the P-Cores will hit 3GHz base and 5.4GHz turbo, the E-Cores will settle for 2.2GHz base and 4.3GHz turbo.
That said, 5.7 GHz can be achieved using Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 and up to 5.8 GHz using Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB). Additionally, they will have a 36 MB L3 cache and a 32 MB L2 cache , giving a total cache of 68 MB . In addition, they will include integrated Intel UHD Graphics 770 graphics and will support 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM and 5600 MHz DDR5 RAM . Regarding the i7-13700K , this will have16 cores in total, divided between 8 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores , giving a total of 24 threads . The P-Core will work at a speed between 3.4 GHz and 5.3 GHz , while the E-Core will work between 2.5 GHz and 4.2 GHz .
Using Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology , high-performance cores can be increased to 5.4 GHz . In addition, they will have 30 MB of L3 cache and 24 MB of L2 cache, giving a total of 54 MB of cache . This will also have the Intel UHD 770 integrated graphics and support for DDR4 at 3200 MHz and DDR5 at 5600 MHz. Finally, the i5-13600K will have a total of 14 cores and 20 threads , divided between 6 high- performance cores and 8 efficient cores . . Thus, those focused on performance will go from 3.5 GHz to 5.1 GHz in Turbo Boost mode, while the efficient ones will go from 2.6 GHz to 3.9 GHz . Again, they will use the Intel UHD 770 iGPU along with 44 MB of cache and DDR4 RAM at 3,200 MHz and DDR5 at 5,600 MHz.
Let’s compare Raptor Lake to current CPU specs
So let’s see what differences there are between the current Intel Core 13 and the Intel Core 12 , with the tagline K. Thus we have the i9-12900K that offers 16 cores and 24 threads , that is, 8 E-Cores less according to its specifications compared to the of the i9-13900K. In addition, all cores have a lower frequency in Turbo mode, being 600 MHz less in high performance cores and 400 MHz less in efficient cores. In addition, the cache decreases to 44 MB in total and the compatible RAM memory is slower, being DDR5 at 4,800 MHz . The i7-12700K , meanwhile, makes do with12 cores and 20 threads , resulting in 4 E-Cores less .
We also see a speed reduction of 400 MHz less in the P-Core and 600 MHz less in the E-Core and the total cache will be 37 MB . Lastly, the i5-12600K has 10 cores and 16 threads , again losing 4 E-Cores . This will only decrease 200 MHz for the P-Core and 300 MHz for the E-Core, although its cache is satisfied with only 29.5 MB .
