Intel 13th-Gen Raptor Lake Review: Core i5-13600K Is Downright Good!

Raptor Lake is here and it’s honestly pretty surprising. Intel might just be back in the game. We had the opportunity to check out the latest Intel Core i5-13600K and Intel Core i9-13900K and the results are pretty phenomenal. The new Core i5-13600K is going to go right up against the Ryzen 5 7600X and despite costing a little more, there might be a sizable performance advantage. And as for the Core i9-13900K against the Ryzen 9 7950X, it’s the other way around. It costs less yet performs equally as good.

In the world of PCs, there are basically two giants constantly competing. AMD has already shown their cards with their latest Ryzen 7000 series and despite a few hiccups here and there, it’s been a great experience.
