    With this generation, Intel’s performance hybrid architecture brings together the fastest Performance-cores (P-core) ever built along with up to double the number of Efficient-cores (E-core) – delivering improved single-threaded and multi-threaded performance that enables:

    • World’s best gaming experience: Available with up to 24 cores (8 P-cores, 16 E-cores) and 32 threads, the new Core i9-13900K provides the best experience for gaming, streaming and recording. With up to 5.8 GHz and 15% better single-thread performance, it can push high frame rates and allow for unleashed gaming experiences across top titles4.
    • Continued advances in content creation performance: The 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processor lineup adds more E-cores and up to 41% better multi-threaded performance to handle multiple, compute intensive workloads to keep people in the creative flow.
    • An unmatched overclocking experience5: The 13th Gen Intel Core processor offers an unmatched overclocking experience for everyone – from experts to beginners. 13th Gen Intel Core processor users can see higher average overclocking speeds across P-cores, E-cores and DDR5 memory. Intel also updated its easy one-click overclocking feature, Intel® Speed Optimizer, to support 13th Gen processors so users can overclock with minimal effort. And the robust Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 3.0 ecosystem provides a wide selection of overclocking modules. When coupled with Intel® Dynamic Memory Boost, this feature provides a hassle-free memory overclocking experience with both DDR4 and DDR5.

    Rob Bartholomew, chief product officer at Creative Assembly, said, “We’ve been working with Intel for over a decade to deliver an incredible Total War experience on Intel CPUs. We’ve optimized Total War: WARHAMMER III for the hybrid 12th Gen architecture, and we’re excited to continue the work with the new 13th Gen Intel Core Processors.”

    Industry-Leading Features for Desktop Platforms

    The 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processors empower users with leading-edge performance and experiences across gaming, content creation and work, with several new and improved features including:

    • Intel® Adaptive Boost Technology and Thermal Velocity Boost opportunistically boosts processor clock frequencies based on power and thermal headroom during a given workload. Available in Intel Core i9 unlocked SKUs.
    • More E-cores across Intel Core i5, i7, i9 power a big leap in multi-threaded performance and better multi-tasking/mega-tasking experience for users.
    • PCIe Gen 5.0 support, with as many as 16 lanes off the processor.
    • Increased memory support to DDR5-5600 and DDR5-5200, while maintaining DDR4 compatibility.
    • Up to 2x the L2 cache and increased L3 cache.

    Introducing the Intel 700 Series Chipset with Backward Compatibility

    Alongside the 13th Gen Intel Core desktop processors, Intel is launching the new Intel 700 Series chipset with advanced features for increased reliability and performance. Eight additional PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes combined with PCIe Gen 3.0 provide 28 total lanes off the chipset, increased USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 (20Gbps) ports provide improved USB connectivity speed, and DMI Gen 4.0 increases the chipset-to-CPU throughput for fast access to peripheral devices and networking. Additionally, Intel is bringing forward and backward compatibility. Take advantage of 13th Gen Intel Core processor performance improvements with existing Intel 600 chipset-based motherboards.


    13th Gen Intel Core desktop “K” processors and the Intel Z790 chipset will be available starting Oct. 20, 2022, including boxed processors, motherboards and desktop system sales.

    Additional details on the rest of the 13th Gen Intel Core processor family will be shared at a later date.

    Intel Unison: A Seamless Multi-Device Experience Enabling an Open Ecosystem

    Following the acquisition of Screenovate showcased at CES 2022, Intel is introducing Intel® Unison™, a software solution that seamlessly connects your PC and devices for a universal, easy-to-use experience across operating systems.

    Intel Unison’s initial release will deliver a continuous and seamless connectivity experience between the PC and phone, beginning with iOS and Android. Following a simple pairing process, users will be able to:

    • File transfer: Users save time when transferring files and photos between a PC and Android or iOS device, as well as extend the power of the PC and enjoy the continuity of taking a photo or video on a phone and seamlessly editing on the PC.
    • Text message: Users send and receive text messages from PCs to avoid device-switching and enjoy the comfort and ease of a full keyboard and monitor.
    • Phone calls: With access to a phone’s full contact list, users can make and receive voice calls directly from their PCs.
    • Phone notifications: Users can receive and manage phone notifications from a PC to stay connected and maintain control.

    Intel Unison will launch on select Intel® Evo™ laptops based on 12th Gen Intel Core processors from Acer, HP and Lenovo this year, and will scale to 13th Gen Intel Core-based designs starting early in 2023. Intel Unison will continue to evolve with additional form factors, functionality and operating systems in the future6.

    That's all they talk about(AMD also about theirs)
    What about security, without a performance hit, specially when a new micocoder come, on down the line because of some new vulnerability found?
    Windows 11's security slows the system down enough I have found(I only have 11 on one out of 4 systems I have).

    Which of these CPUs is now the 'best bang for the buck" - AMD or Intel?

    ...with 253W thermal design power (TDP) for its latest i9 and i7 desktop processors, water cooling might as well be a requirement.

    (or so I just read elsewhere)

    Needs its own power stataion.

    Some aircoolers can operate at 245w tdp but the temperature limit is close to 100° with fan at 75% and 100% operation.
    For water cooling some can afford fan speeds at 50% but this is the limit in terms of processor temperature. At 75% and 100% fan operation it's a little better for the watercooling but it's close to 100°, so for a tdp of 253w the watercooling will approach a little more than 100° at 75 and 100 % operation of the fans.
    I draw these indications from tests of the i9 12900k with unrealistic synthetic tests which stress the processor at 245w, real use tasks to reach the maximum frequency of the processor should be possible with aircooling if I understood correctly...
    If in the future intel and amd continue to increase the tdp then there will only be, for certain high-end processors, watercooling of more than 360mm, 480mm in particular to cool their cpu.

    It's too early to tell, it takes web reviews to get the answer. Personally, as I intend to buy a computer, I would like to know the tdp performance ratio, I want to avoid water cooling which has potential leaks among other things.
