The six processors presented today are aimed at the most enthusiastic users, a group within which we find the gamers. The Core i9-13900K, with its 24 cores (8 P cores, 16 E cores), 32 threads and up to 5.8 GHz, promises to deliver 15% more single-threaded performance and up to 41% better multi-threaded performance . This processor is not for all budgets, so we also have the i7 and i5, which due to their performance and price are usually the most popular among gamers. The rest of the family, which in addition to more modest options includes a processor capable of reaching 6 GHz, will arrive later.
Based on an Intel 7 process (previously called 10nm ESF) and hybrid x86 performance architecture, 13th Gen Intel Core processors make use of performance cores (P-cores) and efficient cores (E-core) that divide the workloads efficiently thanks to the Thread Director. This CPU-embedded microcontroller optimizes the scheduling decision making of any workload to ensure that threads are running on the correct cores.
13th Gen Intel Cores support the Intel 600 series chipset and also take advantage of the new Intel 700 series. chipset features eight additional PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes, which combined with the PCI Gen 3.0 lanes provide up to 28 lanes. There is also an increase in the number of USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 (20 Gbps) ports.
