Intel’s new $196 16-thread Core i5 is an superior purpose to improve from an older CPU

The brand new Intel Core i5 13400F appears to be a mighty processor for the cash. Coming with 10 cores and 16 threads, I am really questioning why I ought to spend any extra on my subsequent CPU improve than the comparatively paltry $196 Intel’s asking for with this chip. From the specs introduced at CES 2023 alone, this could possibly be a price range gamer’s dream.

Let’s get proper into this chip’s greater than spectacular spec. Like I discussed, the Core i5 13400 comes with 10 cores, and people 10 cores are made up of six Efficiency-cores (P-cores) and 4 Environment friendly-cores (E-cores).

These six P-cores are of a speedy ilk designed to speed up your gaming expertise. They’re able to operating as much as 4.6GHz Max Turbo on the Core i5 13400F, which, whereas low subsequent to say the Core i9 13900K’s 5.8GHz Max Turbo velocity, is completely fast sufficient for fast-paced gaming. 

That is additionally a giant P-core clock velocity bump over the Core i5 12400F from the final technology. The twelfth Gen chip operates at a extra modest 4.4GHz, although admittedly even that kind of velocity was sufficient to win Dave over in his Core i5 12400 evaluate (opens in new tab).

The Core i5 13400F’s 4 E-cores are extra centered on background duties and taking the pressure off of the P-cores. There’s solely a handful right here, however their mere inclusion is trigger for celebration—the Core i5 12400F did not include any.

That makes for a 16-thread chip total within the Core i5 13400. That is an entire lot for this kind of money, and needs to be useful for much more CPU intensive workloads past gaming.

By way of cache, the Core i5 13400F comes with 20MB of L3 and 9.5MB of L2—one other enchancment over its twelfth Gen counterpart. It helps each DDR4 and DDR5 throughout each 600-series and 700-series motherboards, which implies it is best to be capable to decide up an inexpensive board and get off to a superb begin. You can even go as low-cost as ASRock’s B660M Professional RS, which is barely $120 on Newegg (opens in new tab) proper now.

What that each one means is the Core i5 13400F will arrive with an identical beneficial price ticket to the Core i5 12400F however with 4 further cores, all the advantages of Intel’s hybrid structure, and run as much as 200MHz sooner. To not point out the opposite Raptor Lake-based upgrades I’ve spoken about in additional depth in my Core i9 13900K evaluate (opens in new tab). Solely draw back is it consumes a bit extra energy.

The ‘F’ on the finish of the Core i5 13400F denotes this chip’s lack of built-in graphics, nevertheless. You will not actually miss the Intel UHD Graphics 730 chip you will discover on the Core i5 13400, although if that processor is extra available then it is solely a contact costlier at $221.

Simply keep in mind, these are Intel’s beneficial buyer costs. Whereas we are likely to see chips float round these kinds of costs as soon as the preliminary launch day fervour has settled, proper now the thirteenth Gen is a bit pricier than we might like. These chips might take a short time to filter out into the market, too, so simply maintain an eye fixed out for the most effective worth as they arrive in.

Neither the Core i5 13400 or 13400F are overclockable the normal means. There is a slim probability some motherboard producers might permit some sneaky BCLK overclocking on the facet with these locked chips, as this was the case with a few of Intel’s twelfth Gen processors (and we cherished the Core i5 12400 for that). But to date it seems as if BCLK overclocking on this means does not play properly with the thirteenth Gen, so we’ll have to attend and take a look at for ourselves to make certain both means.

Core i5 13400 6+4 16 4.6 65/148 $221
Core i5 13400F 6+4 16 4.6 65/148 $196
Core i5 12400 6+0 12 4.4 65/117 $211–221
Core i5 12400F 6+0 12 4.4 65/117 $184–194

For any PC gamer nonetheless rocking an Intel Core i7 6700K or a chip of an identical four-core design (I’ve a construct with one such chip in it nonetheless to at the present time), it is robust to disclaim the Core i5 13400F as an enormous improve. Heck, it is a fairly superior improve even in case you’ve received a newer CPU than that, however then once more I am not a giant proponent of needlessly altering CPUs for the sake of it. 

There isn’t any denying that CPUs actually have come on leaps and bounds as of late, and it is that agency competitors between Intel and AMD that is fuelling the fireplace. There isn’t any higher instance of that in my thoughts than the Core i5 13400F’s spectacular spec—a giant enchancment on what was already a mighty mid-range providing within the Core i5 12400. 

By way of competitors, the Core i5 13400F needs to be fairly a bit cheaper than AMD’s newest Ryzen 5 7600X, which sells for round $299, that means there is not any actual reverse quantity from the pink group—but. AMD does have a keynote at CES 2023 tomorrow, nevertheless, and hearsay has it we might hear extra about its extra entry-level desktop CPU plans then or a while this month.

Within the meantime, I’ll do my finest to get this chip within the PC Gamer take a look at bench and see what it is actually capable of ship. Although I do not foresee it being something aside from superior.
