Earlier, it was found that the most recent Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs were listed four times on Amazon UK. All of the ads were marked as “temporarily out of stock,” which may have been stand-ins for the business’s newest SKUs. The items, however, are no longer available on the online retailer’s website, perhaps violating the embargo date specified by Intel. Fortunately for us, there are a few people who are paying attention, and one of them took a snapshot of the Amazon Intel Raptor Lake listings.
Once again, kudos to Twitter user @momomo us (@hardwareleaker188) for being alert enough to grab a screenshot before the listings were removed.
“188” has also shared images of the most recent Raptor Lake processor packaging, which is said to be thinner than the previous packaging in an effort by Intel to send out more processors consistently and raise the likelihood that the business will outsell AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 series. Additionally, a little plastic wafer will be sent within the container with the i9-13900K SKU.
From the entry-level Intel Core i5-13600KF CPU with 6 P-cores and 8 E-cores to the top-of-the-line i9-13900KF with its 8 P-cores and 16 E-cores, it appears that Raptor Lake offers four tiers of processing capability.
The Intel Core i7-13700, which is set to be offered in K and KF versions and offers 8 P-cores and 8 E-cores in both, sits in the middle of the range of SKUs that will be available: low and high. Prices for the top SKU from Intel’s Raptor Lake line range from 350 GBP to just over 750 GBP.
An exclusive version of the Alder Lake series CPUs with a boost clock of 5.5 GHz was the Intel Core i9-12900KS. According to UK review sources on the internet, the price has grown by 150 GBP since the Alder Lake i9-12900K was first introduced in the UK. However, the Intel Gen Core i9-12900KF now retails in the UK for 609 GBP. Additionally, on the day of launch, the i9-13900KF priced around the same as Intel’s prior i9-12900KS.
The price difference between the Core i7-13700K and Core i7-13700KF CPUs from Intel is up to 137 GBP (the i7-12700K and i7-12700KF). Last but not least, compared to the i5-12500KF CPU from Alder Lake, the Core i5-13600KF is about 80 GBP more expensive. Although the prices are subject to change at any time, they at least provide an indication of what the most recent Intel Raptor Lake 13th Gen Core CPUs would cost at launch.
