Intel has accomplished the not possible. Whereas wanting down the barrel of the Ryzen 4 launch, they’ve managed one thing they haven’t been capable of (or been pushed to) do in latest instances: give us unbelievable efficiency at unbelievable pricing. And, for those who’re an overclocker like me, the brand new thirteenth Gen “Raptor Lake” chips make it simple to get speeds in excessive 7 GHz vary on a number of cores or over 8 GHz on a single core.

The highest-of-the-line Core i9-13900K, which I pushed all the way in which to eight.2 GHz, has a mere $589 MSRP (although it’s over $600 in additional locations proper now). Let’s not neglect the not so distant Intel Excessive Version days the place the highest canine of the mainstream and or lately deceased excessive finish desktop section was at all times $999-$1099. At almost half that worth with 24 Cores and 32 threads, the Core i9-13900K is a win for shoppers. 

Whereas some will argue that the lesser-core depend Core i5-13600K and Core i7-13700K are the true worth / efficiency winners, I might quite carry my silver spoon, increase my pinky and benefit from the high canine 13900K (or high dinosaur). Let’s overclock this factor.
