Any preorder for 13900KS

Anyone seen a preorder for this chip yet? I would think a bios update is necessary too. Haven't seen that either.

No pre-orders that I know of, and I've been searching.

13900KS should launch today or tomorrow. Been researching the 12900KS and some enthusiasts saying stock idle thermals are high like 45C 50C, for no apparent reason other than - that's the way the 12900KS runs. If that's the case with the 13900KS, I'll probably return mine for refund and grab a 13900KF.

With that in mind, I'm not able to buy from Newegg, they have no CPU refund policy... If Newegg offered "return for store credit" that would be fine, but I couldn't find that option.

Newegg - return for replacement only - NO refunds.
Best Buy - 15days full refund or replacement
Amazon US - 30days full refund or replacement

Tomorrow is the rumor. Checking several sites as well. No pre order so far.

Jan 12 has been the rumored launch date for about 3weeks.

Intel showed off the chip yesterday link above. So if the 13900KS doesn't launch tomorrow, it's still very close.

I never buy any components from Best Buy, yet we have a brick and mortar just 10miles away, so if need be, could simply drive over and return the 13900KS - easy. 🙂

Hoping the 13900KS stock idles mid to low 20s like my 13600K with custom water, wishful thinking. :rolleyes:

This chip is the last for the socket?

Another family of CPUs is coming from Intel later this year Q3 or Q4 called Raptor Lake Refresh. Same 1700 socket, same Z790 chipset.

We don't know if Raptor Lake Refresh will be titled 14th gen processors or if Intel will maintain the 13th gen nomenclature.

New socket 1851 from Intel does not arrive until late 2024 for Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake along with the Z890 chipset. 🙂

Rumours come and go about a Raptor Lake Refresh on the same socket before Meteor Lake and LGA1852. I guess it all depends how the yields are on the Intel 4 process.

Just purchased one at Newegg. Wonder about a bios update now.

Yes, can the admins recommend an Apex and Extreme bios for the 13900KS?

Will Apex 0809 work ok?

Congratulations Mr. Hopper, I grabbed one too.

Even though told myself wasn't going to buy from Newegg, Best Buy and Amazon didn't have a listing.

Got overnight shipping for $16, wooooooooooooo, be here tomorrow. 🙂

It was a "Silent Release", no official announcement by Intel the 13900KS even exists yet, had to go by the rumored launch date. :rolleyes:
