Canadian retailer says Intel Core i9-13900KS 6GHz CPU is 22% more expensive than i9-13900K

It’s no surprise that Intel will be releasing more Raptor Lake CPUs soon. In just five weeks, the company will launch a wide range of desktop and mobile CPUs based on the updated Raptor Lake silicon. However, not all CPUs will be completely new as some SKUs are expected to use older ones from the Alder Lake series.

The next Core i9-13900KS processors would cost 972 CAD, 22% more expensive than the Core i9-13900K from the same retailer. This is Intel’s first consumer desktop processor with a base clock speed of 6 GHz. The organization has not confirmed the names of the processors, but a successor to the Core i9-12900KS would almost certainly be called the 13900KS.

The company offers 65W Core i9, i7 and i5 CPUs. Pricing doesn’t make sense here, as the 65W SKUs are now priced higher than their K-series unlocked counterparts, but this is just a rough estimate and could be a placeholder.

The Intel Core i9-13900KS and 65W SKUs will be available at CES 2023 in early 2019. In addition, the company will unveil its new mid-range B760 motherboard series. In addition, all 13th and 12th generation Core processors should be functional with existing 600 series motherboards.
