As a result of Apple’s switch to its own silicon and AMD’s emergence as a formidable competitor, Intel is no longer the undisputed leader in the market for central processing units (CPUs).
The corporation has been under intense pressure to innovate, and as a result, it has moved to a new hybrid architecture based on the 12th-generation Alder Lake processor, which offers improvements in both performance and battery life.
However, Intel cannot rest on its laurels and must keep pushing the boundaries of innovation. It is not anticipated that thirteenth-generation central processing units, also known as Raptor Lake, will bring about sweeping changes.
However, the rumours of upcoming improvements and alterations could turn them into a formidable adversary, and it doesn’t appear that we’ll have to wait too much longer for the first one to appear. Everything that you need to know is included below.
Intel 13th Gen Raptor Architecture
The 12th generation Alder Lake processors and the Intel Raptor Lake CPUs will both be based on the Intel 7 process node. The present LGA 1700 motherboards and CPU coolers will also work with 13th generation Intel CPUs. Performance-based “P- cores” for 13th generation CPUs will be based on Raptor Cove architecture.
Technical information on how it differs from the Golden Cove architecture at Alder Lake is not yet accessible. The Alder Lake CPUs’ Gracemont architecture, which is derived from Atom, will be the foundation for the energy-efficient “E-cores.” The CPU-intensive tasks will be handled by the performance cores, while the mild demands will be handled by the energy-efficient cores.
The top-end i9 13900K and 13900KF versions will reportedly include eight performance cores and 16 energy-efficient cores with 3GHz base clocks, according to the source. The i3 13100, which is the lowest-end model, only has four performance cores with a base clock of 3.4GHz.
Intel 13th Gen Raptor Price
Although the price of the current-generation Rocket Lake offers us a sense of what to expect to spend for desktop processors, it is unclear how much Raptor Lake desktop CPUs will cost.
$513 to $539 for a Core i9-11900K
$374-$399 for a Core i7-11700K
$237 to $262 for a Core i5-11600K
$157 to $182 for a Core i5-11400K
These are the suggested pricing by Intel; manufacturers eventually decide what you’ll pay, which explains the price range available.
If Intel releases Raptor Lake processors for laptops as well, they will be built into the laptops rather than being sold separately. In that case, the manufacturer, as well as the design and other specifications, will affect the amount you spend. Although it is impossible to estimate their price, the extensive distribution of Alder Lake chips suggests there will be a large range of options.
Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake Release Date
The first 13th-generation CPUs are scheduled to be released in the second half of 2022, Intel stated at an investor meeting in February 2022. In case we had any doubts, the business even demonstrated a system running on a chip from Raptor Lake.
Typically, new Intel chips are unveiled at the business’ Innovation event in late September. It now appears likely that Raptor Lake will make its debut there because that has been set for September 27–28.
In fact, Enthusiastic Citizen, a leaker, claimed the first 13th-generation CPUs, known as Raptor Lake-K for desktops, would go on sale on September 28. These, according to Tom’s Hardware, will allegedly start selling on October 17.
Other desktop chips and ones intended for laptop integration appear to be coming in 2023. Since the latter frequently debut at CES, the gathering in January 2023 is a plausible contender.
