Intel's Non-K Raptor Lake CPUs Listed with Alleged Price, Release Date and Core Counts

Intel was expected to formally introduce its 13th Generation Core 'Raptor Lake' processors at CES which kicks off on January 5, but at least one European store plans to start selling the parts already on January 3, 2023, according to a listing spotted by @momomo_us. Retailers are also prepping to start sales of Intel B760 and H770-based motherboards, but some of those platforms will be released considerably later. 

The leaked listing not only reveals the alleged launch date of the new CPUs as well as their preliminary pricing (since this is an early listing, prices may be inflated), but also general configurations of the new 13th Generation Core processors. Of course, we are dealing with unofficial information, so take it with a grain of salt. 

Just like unlocked 13th Gen Core i9-series, the mainstream SKUs will continue to feature 24 cores, including eight high-performance Raptor Cove cores as well as 16 energy-efficient Goldmont cores. The key difference between Core i7 'Raptor Lake' and 'Alder Lake' parts is that the former has four more energy efficient cores. Additional cores and higher clocks will almost certainly put the new chips among the best CPUs for gaming

Meanwhile, the key change between Core i5 'Raptor Lake' and 'Alder Lake' processors is that the new CPUs will feature four or six Goldmont cores, whereas the older ones did not have them at all. The addition of four more cores will make Core i5 processors considerably more competitive in multi-threaded workloads. The Core i5-13500 looks particularly competitive as it packs 14 cores (6P+8E) while being priced at €320 ($282 without VAT). By contrast, 13th Gen Core i3 parts will not add any processing engines and will still come with four high-performance cores. 

Prices of the new 13th Gen Core 'Raptor Lake' desktop parts seem quite high. But there are a couple of things to keep in mind here. Firstly, prices in Europe are typically a bit higher than prices in the U.S. Secondly, retailers that list new parts ahead of formal launch to attract early birds typically add a premium.

When it comes to Intel B760 and Intel H770-based motherboards for LGA1700 processors, we cannot say that they are cheap as all of them cost well over €200/$200. Meanwhile, most of the listed motherboards support inexpensive DDR4 memory, so systems based on the new 13th Generation Core 'Raptor Lake' processor will feature a rather competitive price tag. This is particularly important as they compete against AMD's Ryzen 7000-series platforms that only support DDR5 and so far AMD's partners yet have to introduce inexpensive AM5 motherboards. 

Intel's lineup of non-K 13th Generation Core processors for mainstream and compact desktops will likely include 17 SKUs featuring 35W and 65W processor base power (PBP) and will include CPU models that use Raptor Lake B0, Alder Lake C0, or Alder Lake H0 stepping dies. The European retailer currently lists only 65W models, which is not surprising as Intel typically starts to sell such SKUs ahead of 35W processors.

    If that's the case then I don't see them selling in the EU.

    Isn't one of these supposed to be an F variant?

    Correction aside, an i3 costing $190 (based on the pictures). What a bargain! /s

    The 13500 will be interesting. Although availability of the 500 series has always been less and they seem to stay at MSRP even when the 400 series gets steep discounts.

    I of course wait for complete testing before making any moves.

    I guess the i3 is the new mainstream in Europe then.
    Core i3-13100
    € 189

    Because that i5 has become way too expensive to be mainstream.
    Core i5-13400
    € 306

    Honestly x86 is depressing to look at, both the price of the platform and the energy costs are increasingly pushing people away.

    If you want to sell CPU and GPU in Europe you need to get power consumption under control. 200+ watt GPU simply will not sell, it is all hands on deck to lower energy costs. People who used to look at monthly energy use, now look at their daily energy use.

    I am increasingly looking at developments in ARM architecture, maybe that will offer some relief to the increases in price and power of x86 that are not sustainable for most budgets.

    Seems like Intel CPU and MOBO prices are outrageous like AMD's. Hoping for some good news and price movement at CES.

    The only thing that can yield good news is sales volume dropping faster than unitary profit can rise due to rising prices cooling off demand such that overall profit for all involved collapses. That is the only way to make corporations hell-bent on increasing profit at any cost listen.

    I'm guessing that 2nd 13100 is supposed to be the 13300?

    I can go to microcenter and choose between 7 different AM5 B650 boards that cost $199 or less and 17 boards with b650, b650e, and x670e if i go to $259 Anton.... your bias is showing.

    I also can get a free kit of 32gb ddr5 6000c36 with a 7700x or above, but thats in store only (and not everyone has a microcenter nearby.) Their best deals though are intel 12th gen k sku's with asus z690 boards. picked up a 12600k and tuf z690 plus wifi d4 for a friends build for about $300.
