Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake processors and Z690 motherboards rumored to launch on October 17, H770 and B760 motherboards at CES 2023

Enthusiast Citizen leaker has revealed the release schedule of Intel’s 13th generation CPUs and the release schedule for 700 series motherboards.

13th Generation Intel Raptor Lake processors and Z790 motherboards launched in October, main list at CES 2023, rumored

According to the link, Intel plans to unveil its 13th generation of Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs on September 28th during its upcoming Innovation event. The company stated that it is lifting the review ban on the same date which means users can see the chip’s performance test several weeks before the retail launch.

  • Unveiled the 13th generation of the Raptor Lake desktop CPU – September 28 (Innovation Event)
  • Raptor Lake 13th Generation Desktop CPU Revision Ban – September 28 (Innovation Event)
  • 13th generation Lake Raptor “K-Series” SKU and Z790 launched for retail sale – October 17
  • Lake launch of the thirteenth generation Raptor “Non-K” SKU and H770 / B760 – January 5 (CES 2023)

Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake desktop CPUs will launch on October 17, three weeks after the review ban was lifted. The initial launch kit will consist of three SKUs that come in unlocked “K” flavors. These devices will include Intel Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i5-13600K. Core i9-13900K will have 24 cores and 32 threads, Core i7-13700K will have 16 cores and 24 threads while Core i5-13600K will have 14 cores and 20 threads. All CPUs will feature the latest Raptor Cove P-Cores and Gracemont E-Cores, providing more buffering, clocks, and I/O capabilities.

The 13th generation of Raptor Lake desktop CPUs will be accompanied by Z790 motherboards that will provide the best VRM for overclocking and support for high-level DDR5 memory DIMMs since the new chips can support native JEDEC speeds of up to DDR5-5600. There will also be DDR4 variants, but it looks like motherboard makers will focus a bit more on DDR5 memory since it will compete with AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs.

If we take into account the September 15 launch date of the Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs, it looks like Raptor Lake will be a month late and may have to compete with the Zen 4 3D V-Cache parts that AMD itself has also confirmed to Earth this year.

The Z790 chipset will offer 20 PCIe Gen 4 and 8 PCIe Gen 3 lanes while the CPUs will have 16 PCIe Gen 5 and 4 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. We know motherboard makers will have quite a few products that will split the x16 discrete graphics card lanes. With x4 PCIe Gen 5 M.2 slot. Intel will not have native PCIe Gen 5 M.2 support until the 14th generation Meteor Lake chips.

Expected Features of 13th Generation Intel Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs:

  • Up to 24 cores and 32 threads
  • Brand New Raptor Cove CPU Cores (Top P-Core IPC)
  • Based on 10nm ESF ‘Intel 7’ processing node
  • Supported on current LGA 1700 motherboards
  • Dual channel DDR5-5600 memory support
  • 20 PCIe Gen 5 Lanes
  • Enhanced overclocking features
  • 125W PL1 TDP (Master SKUs)

Non-K Intel 13 CPUs, Gen Raptor Lake, and the most popular H770 and B760 options will be revealed at CES 2023 on January 5, 2023. Intel is committed to the LGA 1700/1800 socket. A platform for at least one set of CPUs, the Raptor Lake. Chipzilla has confirmed that the Raptor Lake CPUs will be compatible with LGA 1700 motherboards based on the 600-series chipset.
