Intel has unveiled the 13th Gen Intel Core processor family, led by the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K – the world’s fastest desktop processor.

The 13th Gen Intel Core family includes six new unlocked desktop processors with up to 24 cores and 32 threads and blazing clock speeds up to 5.8 GHz for the best gaming, streaming and recording experience.

Led by the launch of the Intel Core ’K’ processors, the new desktop family will consist of 22 processors and more than 125 partner system designs.

Users can take advantage of processors’ performance improvements with existing Intel 600 or new Intel 700 series chipset motherboards.

“We are raising the standards of PC performance once again with our latest generation of flagship 13th Gen Intel Core Processors,” said Michelle Johnston Holthaus, executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel. “The 13th Gen Intel Core family is the latest example of how Intel is enabling amazing experiences to happen on the PC – at scale and across all PC product segments. Combine this with an industry-leading partner ecosystem and new solutions like Intel Unison, and together we are showing the world what’s truly possible with the PC experience going forward.”

A complete, all-around platform to game and create
Building on a matured Intel 7 process and x86 performance hybrid architecture, 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processors enable better system performance – even through the most demanding of multitasking workloads. This includes up to 15 per cent better single-threaded performance and up to 41 per cent better multi-threaded performance .

With this generation, Intel’s performance hybrid architecture brings together the fastest performance-core (P-core) ever built along with up to double the number of efficient-cores (E-core) – delivering improved single-threaded and multi-threaded performance that enables:

World’s best gaming experience: Available with up to 24 cores (8 P-cores, 16 E-cores) and 32 threads, the new Core i9-13900K provides the best experience for gaming, streaming and recording. With up to 5.8 GHz and 15 per cent better single-thread performance, it can push high frame rates and allows for unleashed gaming experiences across top titles .

Continued advances in content creation performance: The new lineup adds more E-cores and up to 41 per cent better multi-threaded performance to handle multiple, compute intensive workloads to keep people in the creative flow.

With the new processors, users can see higher average overclocking speeds across P-cores, E-cores and DDR5 memory. Intel also updated its easy 1-click overclocking feature, Intel Speed Optimizer, to support 13th Gen processors so users can overclock with minimal effort.

New features for desktop platforms
The new desktop processors empower users with upgraded performance and experiences across gaming, content creation and work, with several new and improved features including:

• Intel Adaptive Boost Technology and Thermal Velocity Boost – opportunistically boosting processor clock frequencies based on power and thermal headroom during a given workload. Available in Intel Core i9 unlocked SKUs
• More E-cores across Intel Core i5, i7, i9 – powering a big leap in multi-threaded performance and better multi-tasking/mega-tasking experience for users
• PCIe Gen 5.0 support, with up to sixteen lanes off the processor
• Increased memory support to DDR5-5600 and DDR5-5200, while maintaining DDR4 compatibility
• Up to 2x the L2 cache and increased L3 cache

13th Gen Intel Core processor
Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO, introduces 13th Gen Intel Core processors on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022, during the Intel Innovation event keynote in San Jose, California.

Introducing the Intel 700 series chipset with backward compatibility
Alongside the processors, Intel also introduced its 700 Series chipset with advanced features for increased reliability and performance. Eight additional PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes combined with PCI Gen 3.0 provide 28 total lanes off the chipset, increased USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20 Gbps) ports provide improved USB connectivity speed, and DMI Gen 4.0 increases the chipset-to-CPU throughput for fast access to peripheral devices and networking.

The 13th Gen Intel Core desktop ‘K’ processors and the Intel Z790 chipset will be available starting October 20, 2022, including boxed processors, motherboards and desktop system sales.

Intel Unison
Following the acquisition of Screenovate showcased at CES 2022, Intel is introducing Intel Unison, a software solution that connects PC and devices for a universal, easy-to-use experience across operating systems.

Intel Unison’s initial release will deliver a continuous and seamless connectivity experience between the PC and phone, beginning with iOS and Android.

Intel Unison will launch on select Intel Evo laptops based on 12th Gen Intel Core processors from Acer, HP and Lenovo this year, and will scale to 13th Gen Intel Core based designs starting early next year.
