Intel Raptor Lake CPU Leaks Suggest 13th Gen Price Hike

Intel Raptor Lake CPU leaks point to a possible price increase, as online listings suggest a higher MSRP than Alder Lake. As a result, you may have to pay a lot more for a 13th-gen flagship chip, and budget options might carry a higher price tag, too.

Seen by Videocardz, the Intel Raptor Lake CPU pricing information is currently available on Newegg. According to the retailer, the Core i9-13900K will apparently be available for $660 USD, while the budget Core i5-13600KF is $309.99 USD. That means we could be seeing a price rise above Alder Lake, with margins ranging from $40 to $70 USD across the entire lineup.

As with all leaks, this Raptor Lake price leak is best taken with a grain of salt. Intel’s innovation event is only hours away, so there’s a chance the company’s reveal may not match Newegg’s information.

The best gaming CPU options already cost a pretty penny, so higher 13th Gen prices may drive enthusiasts to AMD alternatives. That’s not to say the red team’s offering is any cheaper, as the world-record-breaking Ryzen 9 7950X will arrive with a $699 USD tag. However, if Raptor Lake packs less of an punch, its higher price may hinder its chances against Ryzen 7000 rivals once they hit the battlefield.
