Intel today launched its 13th-generation desktop processors lineup in India. This comes days after AMD Ryzen 7000 series announcement event. Intel’s 13th-generation CPU family includes six all-new unlocked processors ranging from i5-13600KF to i9-13900k. While the company is still mum about the Indian pricing of the Intel 13th-generation, Team Blue has disclosed these processors will be available in India starting October 21st.
Intel’s 13th-generation desktop processors are part of its Raptor Lake family and are manufactured using 10nm with x86 hybrid architecture. The company claims that the new processors have up to 15 percent better single-threaded performance and up to 41 percent better multi-threaded performance than previous-generation processors.
Besides the i9-13900k and Core i5-13600KF, the Intel Core i9-13900KF, Core i7-13700K, Core i7-13700KF, and Core i5-13600K are the other CPUs in the lineup. It’s important to note that the ‘K’ and ‘F’ variants only differ in the sense that F variants lack Intel’s UHD Graphics onboard.
Intel also claims its new Core i9-13900K flagship processor is the world’s fastest desktop processor with 24 cores and 32 threads with a clock speed of up to 5.8 GHz. Intel says it can deliver 15 percent better single-thread performance than the previous-generation processor.
Besides this, Intel is also launching all-new 700 series chipset motherboards that support DDR5 RAM (DDR5-5600 and DDR5-5200) and comes with advanced functionalities for better reliability and increased performance. There will be 22 CPUs available from Intel, and they will work with motherboards with either the 600 or the recently unveiled 700 chipsets.
The Intel 700 series chipset motherboards have backward compatibility, increased USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20Gbps) ports, DMI Gen 4.0, and PCIe Gen 5.0 support, with as many as 16 lanes off the processor.
