Intel Core i5 13600K review

 | Biden News


The Intel Core i5 13600K is another powerful mid-range chip from Intel, and you can expect a significant boost in core counts even with this more parsimoniously priced Raptor Lake chip. Fine-tuned to deliver high gaming frame rates, this is ultimately the chip that most gamers should consider first for their next gaming PC.

The fundamental hybrid architecture found in the Core i5 13600K is a continuation of that introduced with Alder Lake and the 12th Gen, but with Raptor Lake there have been some key improvements. I go into those in more detail in our Core i9 13900K review (opens in a new tab)but this is the headline update: more cores.
