After weeks of teasers and leaks, Intel is finally making its 13th Gen processors official today. Intel's 13th Gen desktop CPUs will start arriving on October 20th, led by the flagship Core i9-13900K priced at $589. That's the same price as Intel's previous 12900K flagship, despite Intel's warning of price increases. Intel's 13th Gen announcement comes just as AMD launches its new Ryzen 7000 processors today in a battle for desktop dominance.
Intel's Core i9-13900K will ship with 24 cores, 32 threads, and clock speeds of up to 5.8GHz. Built on Intel's 7 process and its x86 performance hybrid architecture, 13th Gen processors include Performance cores (P-cores) and Efficient cores (E-cores) that split workloads intelligently using Intel's Thread Director, an embedded microcontroller inside the CPU that monitors threads and ensures they're running on the correct cores.
