Description of the processor

The Intel Core i9-13900KS was launched by Intel in January 2023 and the official introductory price communicated by Intel is 699 USD. It is produced using the 10-nanometer process and is based on the Raptor Lake S architecture. The processor, which is based on a monolithic chip design, has a 32.00 megabyte level 2 cache and a 36.00 megabyte level 3 cache. The Intel Core i9-13900KS is designed for the LGA 1700 socket and can be used on all mainboards with this socket.

The processor is based on a hybrid (big.LITTLE) core architecture and has 8 performance cores (codename Raptor Cove) that clock at 3.20 gigahertz and their maximum turbo clock is 6.00 gigahertz. There are also 16 efficiency cores (codename Gracemont) that clock at 2.40 gigahertz and their maximum turbo clock is 4.30 gigahertz. Hyperthreading is only supported by the performance cores, which means that the Intel Core i9-13900KS has a maximum of 32 computing threads available.

The somewhat older Intel UHD Graphics 770, which was released at the end of 2021, is used as the internal graphics unit in the Intel Core i9-13900KS. The graphics unit has a clock frequency of 300 megahertz and the maximum dynamic clock frequency is 1.65 gigahertz. The Intel UHD Graphics 770 has 32 execution units with 256 shaders and can use up to 64 gigabytes of system memory as graphics memory. In order to operate a dedicated graphics card with the Intel Core i9-13900KS, 20 PCIe lines in version 5.0 are available.

The Intel Core i9-13900KS can be operated with up to 128 gigabytes of DDR4-3200 or DDR5-5600 RAM. The processor has 2 memory channels available for this purpose, which can be used to achieve a maximum bandwidth of 89.6 GB/s. In addition, the Intel Core i9-13900KS also supports memory with automatic error correction.
