Intel Core i5-13400F CPU Listed at a Starting Price of $216 by US Retailer

The Intel Core i5-13400F that is looking to become a hot budget chip has been listed before US retailerShopBLT, starting price $216.

Intel Core i5-13400 and Core i5-13400F CPU Starting Pricing $243, $216 for next-gen budget chips

The Intel Core i5-13400 processor will come in the standard and the “F” variant, which lacks integrated graphics. For gamers, the Core i5-13400F will offer the best value but it looks like we could see a slight price hike versus the last generation if those raw prices are to be believed.

In terms of specifications, the Intel Core i5-13400 CPU features 6 P-Cores and 4 E-Cores which totals 10 cores and 16 threads. The CPU has a base clock speed set at 2.5GHz and a boost clock speed of up to 4.1GHz across all cores and 4.6GHz in a single core. The CPU comes with 28MB of L3 cache and will have a 65W PL1 TDP and a PL2 TDP of about 120W. This CPU should be popular in the budget segment due to its performance jump and around $200 where Intel’s 12th line already dominates.

The new Intel Gen Core i5-13400 CPU series is expected to deliver significantly better performance than Core i5-12400 CPUs thanks to upgraded core count and clock speeds while sipping on a bit more power.

ShopBLT shows the Core i5-13400 price to be $243.68, while the Core i5-13400F is $216.16. Compared to the last generation, both older versions are currently priced at $170.23 and $196.81, respectively. Intel’s next-generation processor series is about 27% higher than the Alder Lake variants, but that makes sense since the core count is expected to be higher (from six cores to ten). The new Raptor Lake chips are expected to run up to 30% faster in multi-core situations than Alder Lake, as revealed from last week’s Cinebench leaks.

It is expected that Intel will launch the latest thirteenth generation processors during the company’s CES 2023 announcement, with up to six other series of new series announced at that time. All new processors will have a base power consumption of 65W, which is the lowest in the new Lake Raptor class.

New 13th Gen Intel “Raptor Lake” processors are also expected to be compatible with the new B760 motherboards. This is great for Intel as these motherboards support both the new DDR5, but also DDR4 memory, something the company’s CPU competitor, AMD, has neglected to support with its new Ryzen 7000 CPUs, which are also expected to launch during CES this year. Next 2023, held in Las Vegas between January 3, 2023, and January 6, 2023.
