Intel Core i9-13900KS and 65W 13th Gen Core series listed. PC-Canada has now listed almost all of the upcoming Intel 13th Series processors. 
It is no secret that Intel will be launching more Raptor Lake CPUs very soon. In just 5 weeks, the company is set to introduce a long lineup of desktop and mobile CPUs based on the updated Raptor Lake silicon. Not all the CPUs will be entirely new though, as some SKUs are said to be using older die from Alder Lake series. According to this preliminary listing, the upcoming Core i9-13900KS processors would cost 972 CAD, which is 22% pricier than Core i9-13900K at the same store. This is Intel’s first consumer desktop processors with a 6 GHz clock out of the box. The company did not confirm the name of the processors, but a successor to Core i9-12900KS was almost guaranteed to be called 13900KS.
The company also lists 65W Core i9, Core i7 and Core i5 CPUs. Pricing does not really make much sense here because the 65W SKUs are now listed with higher prices than their unlocked K-series parts. After all, this is just preliminary pricing and possibly a placeholder.
Intel Core i9-13900KS and 65W SKUs will launch at CES 2023 early next year. The company is also to unveil its new mid-range B760 motherboard series. However, all 13th and 12th Gen Core processors should also be compatible with existing 600-series motherboards.
Remember that the prices shown are in Canadian dollars.
