If you have been waiting for something new to happen in the laptop space, this news from Intel will cheer you up. Intel has unveiled 13th Gen Intel® Core Mobile Processors line-up. There are a few different series chipsets announced – HX Series, H Series, P Series, and U Series. Like the previous gen 12th Gen Processors, the 13th Gen Intel processors also have a combination of P-cores ( Performance-cores ) and E-cores ( Efficient-cores ).
How to check if a processor is 13th Gen Intel or 12th Gen Intel processor?
It’s quite easy actually. Check the first two letters of the chipset name. For eg Core i9-13980HX is a 13th gen processor while Core i9-12900H is a 12th Gen processor.
As of this writing ( Jan 3, 2023 ), there is no 13th Gen Intel powered laptops available to purchase in India online on Flipkart or Amazon.in. We expect new 2023 laptops from Asus, HP, Lenovo, Dell, MSI, Acer, and LG to launch in the coming weeks and months with these new processors.
