Intel only just launched its 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" family of CPUs but there is far more to come, with a big tease of the new flagship Core i9-13900KS that will compete against AMD's upcoming Zen 4 range of CPUs with second-gen 3D V-Cache technology attached.

The new Intel Core i9-13900KS processor will be unleashed at CES 2023 alongside some new SKUs for the Raptor Lake CPU family, but there's also news that some of those CPUs will be using an older die based on the Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPU family.

A new listing as popped up on PC-Canada which has listed the Intel Core i9-13900KS processor for $972 CAD, which converts to around $722 USD or so. But, what makes the Core i9-13900KS so special? Well, that "S" stands for something, and that "S" is serious speed: the first ever consumer CPU with a CPU frequency of 6.0GHz out of the box, oh yeah.

Alongside the new Core i9-13900KS we are to expect some new 65W SKUs of the Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 processors, but the pricing on these SKUs is out of whack. I wouldn't be holding PC-Canada to these prices, as they seem far higher than regular unlocked K-series processors. We should expect these to be placeholder prices, as usual.

We should see Intel unleash the Core i9-13900KS and the other Raptor Lake CPUs at CES 2023 which is right around the corner, but AMD won't be waiting without an answer... they have their own big boys ready for the CPU battle in the form of new Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" CPUs that will feature second-generation 3D V-Cache technology.
