One Canadian retailer has revealed pricing for the Intel W790 motherboard for Sapphire Rapids processors, while another has unveiled ten upcoming Raptor Lake processors. For the most part, these are processors that lack the K index in the name and, accordingly, with a TDP of 65 watts. But there is also a top model Core i9-13900KS in the list.
If we translate prices into US dollars, then they look like this:
Intel Core i9-13900KS, 24 cores, 32 threads, n/a -6.0 GHz, $725;
Intel Core i9-13900, 24 cores, 32 threads, 2.0-5.6 GHz, $615;
Intel Core i9-13900F, 24 cores, 32 threads, 2.0-5.6 GHz, $585;
Intel Core i7-13700: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.1-5.2 GHz, $415;
Intel Core i7-13700F: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.1-5.2 GHz, $390;
Intel Core i5-13500: 14 cores, 20 threads, 2.5-4.8 GHz, $258;
Intel Core i5-13400: 10 cores, 16 threads, 2.5-4.6 GHz, $245;
Intel Core i5-13400F: 10 cores, 16 threads, 2.5-4.6 GHz, $218;
Intel Core i3-13100: 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.4-4.5 GHz, $155;
Intel Core i3-13100F: 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.4-4.5 GHz, $125.
All of these CPUs will debut next January and go on sale very quickly. They will compete with the Ryzen 7000, and Intel will have a clear advantage in the number of models and, accordingly, more flexible pricing: everyone will be able to choose a CPU according to their needs.
As for the Core i9-13900KS, this 24-core, 32-thread processor capable of reaching 6.0GHz is expected to be released in limited quantities. Based on the prices published now, the Core i9-13900KS will be about a third more expensive than the Core i9-13900K.
The official premiere of the remaining Intel Raptor Lake processors is expected on January 3rd. They will debut simultaneously with motherboards based on the Intel B760 chipset.
