Intel 13th Gen Desktop CPUs feature more cores, speed: All you need to know


Intel launched the 13th Generation Intel Core processor family yesterday at the Intel Innovation event. The flagship processor in the lineup is the 13th Generation Intel Core i9-13900K, which Intel claims will be the fastest desktop processor in the world. The new 13th Generation Intel Core family comes with up to 24 cores and 32 threads, as well as clock speeds of up to 5.8 GHz.

The 13th Generation Intel Core processors are based on the Intel 7 Process and x86 Performance Hybrid Architecture, and they deliver up to 15% better single-threaded performance and 41% better multi-threaded performance.

13th generation Intel Core desktop processors: Features

  • Intel Adaptive Boost Technology and Thermal Velocity Boost boost processor clock frequencies opportunistically based on power and thermal headroom during a given workload. Unlocked Intel Core i9 SKUs are available. 
  • More E-cores in Intel Core i5, i7, and i9 processors make multi-threaded performance much better and make it easier for users to multi-task and mega-task.
  • Support for PCIe Gen 5.0, with up to 16 lanes off the processor 
  • Memory support has been expanded to DDR5-5600 and DDR5-5200, while DDR4 compatibility has been maintained.
  • L2 cache can be doubled, and L3 cache can be expanded.


The Intel Z790 chipset and 13th Gen Intel Core desktop “K” processors will be available on October 20, 2022. Intel also showed off Unison, a new piece of software that lets Android and iOS phones connect to Windows PCs. 

Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Client Computing Group, said of the launch,
