Intel’s 13th Generation CPU specifications were recently revealed
Intel has inadvertently released the specs for its 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPUs. Intel disclosed and immediately erased specifications for its Core i5-13600K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i9-13900K CPUs a day after announcing that the impending 13th Gen CPU would operate at 6GHz out of the box.
The specifications were released on Intel’s Canadian website (Google cached view), and Twitter users were quick to notice them. According to the specifications, the top-tier i9 13900K would feature 24 cores and 32 threads, with the performance cores operating at a maximum frequency of 5.4GHz. The i7 13700K will have 16 cores and 24 threads, with performance cores running at up to 5.3GHz. Finally, the i5 13600K has 14 cores and 20 threads, with a performance core clock speed of 5.1GHz.
All of this material corresponds to stolen PowerPoint presentations that surfaced online last week. According to the official-looking presentations, both the 13th Generation Core i9 and Core i7 CPUs will be able to leverage two performance cores to accelerate up to 5.8GHz utilizing Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost.
Intel has yet to formally introduce its 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPUs, but the firm has teased a 15% increase in single-threaded performance and a 41% increase in multi-threaded performance. AMD plans to release its 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X CPU later this month, with a clock speed of up to 5.7GHz. Intel says that at least one of its 13th Generation CPUs will be capable of running at 6GHz out of the box.
