Intel will be announcing its 13th Gen Core processors on the 27th of September, followed by a retail launch on the 20th of October. The enthusiast class K series chips namely the i9-13900K/KF, i7-13700K/KF, and the i5-13600K/KF will be the first to be rolled out with the non-K mainstream offerings coming next year.
