Intel has but to unveil its entire household of Thirteenth Era Core processors formally, however Gigabyte has already revealed a few of their specs (together with base frequencies, cache sizes, wattage, and stepping) in its Z790 Aorus Grasp CPU help listing discovered by @momomo_us.

Seven Thirteenth Gen Core processors aimed toward fanatic desktops will solely use Raptor Lake silicon and include a processor base energy (PBP) of 125W. The household may also embrace ten mainstream SKUs with a 58W – 65W PBP and 6 low-power fashions with a 35W PBP for compact desktops.
Sadly, Gigabyte didn’t reveal the core counts of the upcoming Thirteenth Era CPUs. Nonetheless, we will actually make some educated guesses based mostly on our data of what dies Intel plans to make use of for these merchandise.
