Intel Core i9-13900 K

We would hardly recommend the Intel Core i9 13900K processor. It may be one of the fastest and fastest gaming processors out there, but its power consumption makes it practically uncoolable. It’s also not a good choice for your energy bill and from a sustainability standpoint.

Intel Core i7-13700 K

In terms of specs, the Intel Core i7 13700K is actually a slightly superior i9 12900K processor, but for less money. It still uses quite a bit of power and heats up, and so does its direct competitor, the Ryzen 7000. Plus, it can fit into a cheaper motherboard, and if you already have a nice DDR4 set, you can reuse it.

Intel Core i5-13600K

We think the Core i5 13600K is the best processor in the new lineup. Power consumption is still high, but not as extreme as with the i7 or i9, and certainly not in gaming. This chip performs excellently especially in games; It beats all Ryzen 7000 and 5800X3D processors at a price of 419 euros. Also in other tests it offers value for money.

Tweaker says: Excellent

After a fairly quiet year in the processor market, both AMD and Intel are now introducing new processors in a few weeks. distance AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Now it’s Intel’s 13th generation processors, codenamed Raptor Lake, which fit into the current socket 1700. Three new models will appear on Thursday: Core i5 13600K, Core i7 13700K, and Core i9 13900K. We tested them all for this review. Each of the mentioned versions also gets a version ending in “F”, but the only difference is that it doesn’t have an active igpu.

While Raptor Lake processors also work in 600-series motherboards, the new Z790 chipset comes with some new features. The processors themselves are baked using an improved Intel 7 process, which enables faster clock speeds with consistent power consumption. The structure of the P-cores was also slightly modified and the number of electronic cores was doubled. According to rumors, the models that appeared later and the lower position, which until now were only about P-cores, are often also equipped with E-cores.

On the next page you can read what exactly has changed compared to Alder Lake, but other than that you will find a lot of test results in this article.
