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.
