Intel just leaked the specifications of the 13th generation processor


Intel accidentally published the specifications for its 13th generation Raptor Lake processors. A day after it was confirmed that an upcoming 13th generation CPU at 6GHz will run in stock, Intel published and quickly removed the specs for its Core i5-13600K, Core i7-13700K and Core i9-13900K CPUs.

Intel has posted the specifications on its Canadian website (Display in Google cache), and Twitter users were quick to spot them. The specs indicate that the top-of-the-line i9 13900K will have 24 cores and 32 threads, with the performance cores running at a maximum frequency of 5.4 GHz. The i7 13700K comes with 16 cores and 24 threads, with up to 5.3GHz on the performance cores. Finally, the i5 13600K comes with 14 cores and 20 threads and a maximum frequency of 5.1 GHz on the performance cores.

All this information corresponds to: leaked slides that appeared online last week. The official-looking slides also mentioned that both the 13th-gen Core i9 and Core i7 processors can use two performance cores to boost up to 5.8GHz using Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost.

Intel still hasn’t officially announced its 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors, but the company has teased a 15 percent improvement in single-threaded performance and a 41 percent improvement in multi-threaded performance. AMD will launch its 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X chip later this month, and it will be able to boost up to 5.7GHz. Intel claims that at least one of its stock 13th-generation chips can run at 6GHz.

We’ll be hearing a lot more about Intel’s 13th Gen plans during the innovation event on September 27. It just happens to be the same day that AMD releases its Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors.
