Intel expands its 13th Gen desktop CPU family with 65W and 35W SKUs, starting at $109

Intel is expanding its 13th Generation desktop CPU family with the latest 65W and 35W lineup that bring more affordability to PC builders.

Intel’s 13th Gen desktop CPU family blends Raptor Lake and Alder Lake in 65W and 35W configurations, starting at $109

Intel will introduce a total of 16 new 13th Generation CPUs within its processor lineup, eight of which are completely new and another five that share the same core configurations as the K-series parts. The difference between these chips lies largely in their core clocks that are set to meet low energy goals. While these CPUs are rated at 65W and 35W, their peak power comes out to 219W and 106W, respectively.

Intel Core i9-13900 65/35W CPU series

So let’s start with the SKUs from the high-end segment. The Intel Core i9-13900(F) will have 24 cores, 32 threads, 36MB of L3 cache (+32MB L2), base clock 2.0GHz, boost clock up to 5.60GHz, for a total of 20 PCIe Gen 5.0 Lanes and supports up to DDR5-5600 memory. The i9-13900 will retail for $549 while the Core i9-13900F will retail for $524. The Core i9-13900T comes with a base clock of 1.1GHz and a boost clock of 5.3GHz, but has the lowest TDP set at 35W standard and 106W MTP while retailing at just $549.

Intel Core i7-13700 65 / 35W CPU series

The Intel Core i7-13700(F) will have 16 cores, 32 threads, 30MB of L3 cache (+24MB L2), a base clock of 2.1GHz, and a boost clock of up to 5.20GHz, for a total of 20 PCIe Gen 5.0 Lanes and supports up to DDR5-5600 memory. The i7-13700 will retail for $384 while the i7-13700F will retail for $359. The Core i7-13700T comes with a base clock of 1.4GHz and a base clock of 4.9GHz, but has the lowest TDP set at 35W standard and 106W MTP while retailing at just $384.

Intel Core i5-13000 65 / 35W CPU series

Next up we have the Core i5-13600 which features 14 cores, 20 threads, 24MB L3 cache (+11.5MB L2 cache), a base clock of 2.7GHz and a boost clock of up to 5.0GHz. The CPU will retail for $255. There is also a Core i5-13500 which has the same core configuration but a lower base clock of 2.5GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.8GHz while retailing at $132.

There are also two additional Core i5 SKUs, the Core i5-3400 and 13400F which feature a base configuration of 10 cores, 16 threads, 20MB L3 cache (+9.5MB L2 cache), 2.5GHz base clock and 4.6GHz boost , priced at $221 and $196, respectively. The Core i5-13600/13500 will have an MTP of 154W while the Core i5-13400 will have an MTP of 148W.

The Core i5-13600T and Core i5-13500T have base clocks of 1.8/1.6GHz, boost clocks of 4.8/4.6GHz, TDPs of 35/92W, and prices of $255/$232, respectively. . Similarly, the Core i5-13400T has base clock speeds rated at 1.3GHz, boost clocks at 4.4GHz, and up to 82W TDP for a price of $221.

Intel Core i3-13100 65W / 35W CPU series

For the Core i3 family, Intel has an i3-13100(F) processor that has 4 cores, 8 threads, 12MB of L3 cache (+5MB L2 cache), a base clock of 3.4GHz, and a boost clock of up to 4.5 GHz. The CPU will retail for $134 and $109, respectively. CPUs will have a base TDP of 60-58W and an MTP of 89W. The Core i3-13100T has 2.5GHz and 4.2GHz base clocks with 35/69W TDP ratings and is priced at $134.

One thing to note is that the prices have gone up quite a bit. As we saw with the recent 12th Gen price hike from Intel, 13th Gen CPUs cost up to 15% more than what their brethren did at launch, and the prices are listed below:

  • Core i9-13900T vs. Core i9-12900T – 12.2% higher price
  • Core i9-13900F vs. Core i9-12900F – 12.9% higher price
  • Core i7-13700T vs. Core i7-12700T – 13.2% higher price
  • Core i7-13700F vs. Core i7-12700F – 14.3% higher price
  • Core i5-13600 vs. Core i5-12600 – 14.3% higher price
  • Core i5-13500 vs. Core i5-12500 – 14.8% higher price
  • Core i5-13400T vs. Core i5-12400T – 15.1% higher price
  • Core i5-13400F vs. Core i3-12400F – 17.3% higher price
  • Core i3-13100T vs. Core i3-12100T – +9.8% price higher
  • Core i3-13100F vs. Core i3-12100F – +12.3% higher price
