Intel Preps Two thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake Black Version CPUs

Intel’s thirteenth Era Raptor Lake household, which has a number of members among the many greatest CPUS, will quickly welcome two new members. Sadly, the Core i5-13490F and Core i7-13790F will not be out there within the U.S. market. Each chips have already emerged in Intel documents (opens in new tab); nonetheless, they have not discovered their method into Intel’s ARK database, so their launch date continues to be up within the air.

With Alder Lake, Intel launched the Core i5-12490F, a “Black Version” gaming processor unique to the Chinese language market. The Core i5-13490F is the direct successor to the Core i5-12490F, whereas the Core i7-13790F is a brand new addition since a Core i7-12790F has by no means existed. Nonetheless, just like the Core i5-12490F, the Core i5-13490F and Core i7-13790F are seemingly “Black Version” chips as a result of they arrive in black containers versus the everyday blue Intel field, and Intel does not embody a inventory cooler. Moreover, being F-series chips, the Core i5-13490F and Core i7-13790F lack built-in graphics, so pairing them with a discrete graphics card is a should.
