Gigabyte has posted detailed information on their latest premium Intel Z790 series motherboards on their website. In fact, the company is already verifying the entire lineup of Intel CPUs from the 13th Gen Core series before Intel.
With just 6 models available with or without integrated graphics, Intel’s 13th Generation K-series SKUs will be released next week. These 125W TDP SKUs have been unlocked for overclocking, making them the go-to option for Intel enthusiasts. Those who cannot afford the K-series or want less powerful CPUs with TDPs of 65W or 35W will have to wait a bit longer. Intel has not yet announced when further SKUs will be launched. However, at least sixteen more CPUs are slated to hit the market soon.
A leak on the Gigabyte website has confirmed the launch of twenty-two 13th-generation Core processors, which are now being readied for release.
However, the list does not include all of the specifications. Core/thread combinations, as well as their maximum frequencies, are unknown. The list does indicate which silicons are utilized by each processor, which was a topic of discussion before the launch.
SKUs of the Intel Core i5-13400F and i5-13400 will be built on either B0 or C0 dies. However, this is not Intel’s first time using two separate dies for a single CPU. Intel made an identical choice for their Core i5-12400 series, with the i5 12490F component based on the larger die with China.
With increased L2 cache and other enhancements, all higher-end SKUs will use new Raptor Lake dies. Additionally, buyers will need to pay attention to the Core i5-13600 series, which will be available on both Raptor and Alder lake dies.
On October 20th, Intel will release its 13th Generation K-series processors. The release dates of the company’s cheaper B760 and H770 motherboards and non-K, T-series CPUs are still unknown.
