Canadian Retailer Says Intel Core i9-13900KS 6GHz CPU is 22% More Expensive Than i9-13900K

It is no surprise that Intel will be releasing more Raptor Lake CPUs very soon. In just five weeks, the company will launch a wide range of desktop and mobile CPUs based on the updated Raptor Lake silicon. However, not all the CPUs will be completely new, as some SKUs are expected to use older die from the Alder Lake series.

The next Core i9-13900KS processors would cost 972 CAD, 22% more expensive than the Core i9-13900K at the same retailer. This is Intel’s first consumer desktop processor with a base clock speed of 6 GHz. The organization did not confirm the processors’ names, but a successor to the Core i9-12900KS was almost certainly going to be called the 13900KS.

The company offers 65W Core i9, i7, and i5 CPUs. Pricing makes no logic here because the 65W SKUs are now priced higher than their unlocked K-series counterparts but, this is just a rough estimate and may be a placeholder.

The Intel Core i9-13900KS and 65W SKUs will be available at CES 2023 in early January. In addition, the company will reveal its new mid-range B760 motherboard series. Moreover, all 13th and 12th-generation Core processors should be functional with existing 600-series motherboards.
