Possible Intel 13th Gen Core prices in the UK

Intel’s next-generation Intel desktop CPUs will be unveiled next week, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping major retailers from listing the series sooner rather than later.

A number of Raptor Lake processors were previously listed on Amazon UK. A total of four SKUs were revealed by the hardware leaker @momomo_us who took a quick screenshot. Those lists are no longer available.

According to this listing, the i9-13900KF (the flagship model without integrated graphics) will cost 750 GBP. This SKU is the only one listed so far with the full 24 cores (8P+16E). This price is around 150 GBP more than the i9-12900K available in the UK (according to UK reviews), but the current price of the i9-12900KF is around 609 GBP. It’s worth noting that GBP 750 is a similar price to the i9-12900KS (special edition clocked at 5.5GHz) on launch day.

Meanwhile, the i7-13700K is listed at 547 GBP, while the F-variant is listed at 517 GBP. Compared to the current price of the Alder Lake successor, we’re looking at a premium of 120-137 GBP (i7-12700K ~ 410 GBP and i7-12700KF ~ 397 GBP). Finally, the 14-core SKU known as the i5-13600KF is listed at 350 GBP, which is a higher price than the i7-12500KF currently available at 273 GBP.

There’s a good chance these are just a placeholder and not the final UK 13th Gen Core series prices. Moreover, the fact that such a major retailer is starting to list the new series so early could indicate that Intel will lift the pre-order embargo very soon. Perhaps right after the Innovation event (September 27th) where the Raptor Lake series will be announced.

In case there was any doubt about the packaging of the new series, @momomo_us has also leaked the designs of all three sub-series. They look the same as the Alder Lake cans. It’s worth noting that the flagship SKU known as the i9-13900K will come with a small plastic wafer inside (as shown earlier in this post).
