Another year, another line of desktop CPUs from Intel. Here we have the new 13th-Gen Intel Raptor Lake chips.

The new 13th-Gen Intel Raptor Lake CPUs, as per the company, offers 15% faster single-treaded performance and up to 41% better multi-threaded performance than its predecessor, the 12th-Gen chips.


Its most powerful variant is the Intel Core i9-13900K and the i9-13900KF. Having the letter F on the name means that it lacks an Intel UHD Graphics UHD 770 iGPU.

Still, both models have 24 cores, 32 threads, 32MB cache, and a boost clock of up to 5.8GHz.


We also have the Intel Core i7-13700K and i7-13700KF with 16 cores, 24 threads, and a 4.2GHz boost clock. While the Intel Core i5-13600K and i5-13600KF have 14 cores, 20 threads, and up to 5.1GHz clock speeds. You can check the full lineup below.
