Description of the processor

The Intel Core i9-13900 is a processor that belongs to the thirteenth generation of the Intel Core i9 family and is the direct successor to the Intel Core i9-12900. It came onto the market in the first quarter of 2023 and is manufactured with a structure width of 10 nanometers. It is based on the Raptor Lake S architecture and comes from the desktop segment of Intels CPU program. The processor is equipped with a 32.00 megabyte level 2 cache and a 36.00 megabyte level 3 cache and requires a motherboard that is equipped with the LGA 1700 socket.

The processor cores of the Intel Core i9-13900 are arranged in a hybrid core architecture. In total it has 24 processor cores, which are divided into 8 performance cores of the Raptor Cove type and 16 efficiency cores of the Gracemont type. The performance cores clock at up to 5.60 gigahertz and are used when a lot of computing power is required. The efficiency cores clock at up to 4.20 gigahertz and are used when less computing power is required, thus saving energy. Hyperthreading is only supported by the Raptor Cove cores, so the Intel Core i9-13900 has a maximum of 32 computing threads available. If you want to overclock your processor, you have to use the Intel Core i9-13900K, because the Intel Core i9-13900 does not support that.

The Intel UHD Graphic 770 is used as the internal graphics unit in the Intel Core i9-13900. This graphics unit has 32 execution units with 256 shaders and can supply up to 3 monitors with one image. The iGPU was integrated into a CPU for the first time in the fourth quarter of 2021, but it is also already manufactured using the 10 nanometer process. The maximum clock speed of the graphics unit is 1.65 gigahertz and it can use up to 64 gigabytes of the systems built-in RAM as graphics memory.

In total, the Intel Core i9-13900 can be operated with up to 192 gigabytes of DDR4-3200 or DDR5-5600 RAM.
