Discussion Potential Intel's 13th Gen Core "RAPTOR LAKE" CPU pricing leaked by Amazon UK

Hi folks,

It looks like the new Raptor Lake CPUs are going to cost more. This was actually expected though. There have been some rumours circulating about Intel looking at increasing the pricing for its CPUs, and if a screenshot from Amazon UK posted by @momomo_us on Twitter is to be believed, it looks like it'll be a significant increase in price.

The Core i9-13900KF is listed with a price of £750.12, or almost US$815, admittedly including 20 percent VAT. That's a significant price increase over the Core i9-12900KF which normally retails for £679, but is currently offered for £608.99 by Amazon UK. It doesn't look better further down the stack either, with the Core i7-13700K coming in at £547.22 compared to a retail price of £409.88 for the Core i7-12700K.

The Core i7-13700KF should land at £516.58, versus £396.40 for the Core i7-12700KF.

Finally the Core i5-13600KF ends up at £349.75 versus £272.99 for the Core i5-12600KF. As such, we're looking at a price increase of somewhere between around £80 and £140 depending on the SKU. These are not insignificant price increases if these are the actual retail prices we can expect when Intel launches its 13th gen Core processors in October.

Hopefully we'll get some clarity next week, when Intel is said to be announcing the new CPUs. @momomo_us also provided some box art for the new processor boxes.

thats true, an i5 for any normal beyond edge-case will perfectly work, however for my specific use case i just prefered the time when a intel i7 was actaully attainable to increase general performance in most tasks, gaming / compiling / vm's / many others.
Just few hours before the official announcement/unveil today by Intel, NEWEGG has already listed these CPUs. You cannot BUY these as of now. The six processor SKUs Intel is expected to launch today are now listed online.

The i9-13900K flagship is priced at $659, the i9-13900KF (no iGPU) goes for $629; the i7-13700K at $449, the i7-13700KF at $429; the i5-13600K at $329, and the i5-13600KF at $309. The store pages also give away clock speeds.

The i9-13900K/KF ticks at 3.00 GHz base, the i7-13700K/KF at 3.40 GHz base, and the i5-13600K/KF at 3.50 GHz base. The store didn't put out boost clocks.

Compared to the 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU prices, the Core i9-13900K & Core i9-13900KF are 11% & 12% more expensive, respectively. The Core i7-13700K & Core i7-13700KF are 10% and 11% higher priced, respectively while the Core i5-13600K & Core i5-13600KF are 13% & 17% more expensive, respectively.

Price comparison between equivalent Alder Lake and Raptor Lake SKUs.
  • Core i9-1x900K: $590 → $660 (+70 USD increase)
  • Core i9-1x900KF: $565 → $630 (+65 USD)
  • Core i7-1x700K: $410 → $450 (+40 USD)
  • Core i7-1x700KF: $385 → $430 (+45 USD)
  • Core i5-1x600K: $290 → $330 (+40 USD)
  • Core i5-1x600KF: $265 → $310 (+45 USD)
