While 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake chips are expected in the coming days, 4 SKUs have already been spotted on Amazon in the UK, confirming part of their spec sheet.
AMD launched almost a month ago now its new Ryzen 7000 chips, the best gaming processors in the world, but Intel is expected to strike back soon with its new 13th Gen Raptor Lake models. We should learn more tomorrow at the Intel Innovation event, but before that, 4 chips have already been spotted on Amazon.
In fact, the UK e-commerce giant’s site already references 4 different processors. We meet one i9-13900KF chip, two i7-13700K and i7-13700KF, as well as a mid-range i5-13600KF chip. Therefore, only the i7 chip seems to be entitled for the moment to a K version that, we recall, incorporates an integrated GPUunlike the KF models.
What do we know about Intel Raptor Lake chips?
According to Amazon, The Intel Core i5-13600KF chip is expected to feature 6 P (performance) and 8 E (efficient) cores for a total of 14 cores. For their part, the two i7s will use a 16-core configuration with 8 P-cores and 8 E-cores. Finally, the highest-end model, the Core i9-13900KF will be entitled to 24 cores (8 P-cores and 16 MI-cores). ). Therefore, this confirms previous reports that had already revealed all the technical characteristics of the next Intel chips.
Intel could go the same way as AMD this year and increase the price of its processors. The Core i9-13900KF is listed for £750.12, or almost 829 euros. That’s a significant price increase over the Core i9-12900KF, which normally retails for £679 in the UK.
The Core i7-13700KF should cost £516.58, compared to £396.40 for the Core i7-12700KF. Finally, the Core i5-13600KF is listed at £349.75 compared to £272.99 for the Core i5-12600KF. Therefore, based on increases along the Canal, therefore we can expect an increase of around 100 to 150 euros in France depending on the reference. Other leaks also reported price increases of about 15% for upcoming models.
