Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPU pricing leaks via Amazon UK - i9-13900K for £750

If this pricing is legitimate, Raptor Lake is going to be expensive

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPU pricing leaks via Amazon UK - i9-13900K for £750

Leaked Raptor Lake pricing hints at sharp price increases from Intel

At Amazon UK, listings for multiple Intel 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors became available to view yesterday, with @momomo_us  on Twitter being the first to take screenshots of these early listings and their price tags. For Intel's near-flagship i9-13900KF processor, a price tag of £750 was listed, making the CPU around £140 more expensive than Intel's current-generation i9-12900KF at the same retailer.

Recent rumours have suggested that Intel are targeting higher prices with their 13th generation Raptor Lake processors. Since Intel's Raptor Lake CPUs continue to utilise Intel's Intel 7 lithography node and feature more cores and larger caches, it makes sense for Raptor Lake CPUs to be more expensive to manufacture than their last-generation counterparts. Simply put, more cores and more cache increase the die sizes of Raptor Lake processors, and chips with larger die sizes are more costly to produce.

Intel's i9-13900KF should feature eight P-cores and sixteen E-Cores, giving the CPU eight more E-cores than its Alder Lake counterpart. Whether or not these additional E-cores and Raptor Lake's other architectural advancements are worth its alleged price increase remains to be seen.

According to Amazon UK's early listings, Intel's i7-13700KF should cost £516.58, and Intel's i5-13600KF should cost around £349.75. Intel's i7-13700K is said to cost around £547.22. Between Intel's early i5, i7, and i9, their 13th generation Raptor Lake processors will be between £80 and £140 more expensive than their Alder Lake counterparts.

If these prices are legitimate, Intel are increasing their CPU prices with Raptor Lake. That said, the addition of more cores and other enhancements with Raptor Lake will deliver better value to consumers within several areas of Intel's new product stack. For example, Intel's new i7-13700K now has the same core/thread counts as Intel's i9-12900K, but at a lower price. While prices appear to be rising, Intel is giving consumers more for their money.

To be expected I guess. Alder Lake is pretty close to Zen 3 (and nips at the heal of Zen 4) in terms of IPC and gaming, and the 12600K is a bit faster in multitasking than a 5800X.Quote

TBH the 13600k offers so much more for £350 than the 7600x.

I bet it will demolish the 7600x in heavy threading and you can use it with DDR4.

The 7600x was bad enough, but it's being gouged an extra £50 which makes it even worse.Quote

Hopefully they will also have their thermals in check lol…Quote
