Intel Publishes Specs of Raptor Lake CPUs

Posted on

Intel’s thirteenth Era Core ‘Raptor Lake’ processors are weeks away from their launch, once they’re anticipated to hitch the ranks of the finest CPUs for gaming. Within the meantime, Intel (apparently by chance) disclosed a few of their specs of unlocked components by itself web site, clearing some confusion created by numerous unofficial leaks.

On its ‘How one can Select a Gaming CPU’ web page (found by @momomo_us) that offers some primary understanding about Intel’s CPU nomenclature and their capabilities, Intel revealed core counts and the P-core Max frequencies for its Core i5-13600K, Core i7-13700K, and Core i9-13900K processors. These are geared toward fans who dare to overclock their PCs and subsequently want CPUs with unlocked multipliers. (Word that the publish has since been up to date to point out twelfth Gen CPUs.)

As anticipated, the Core i9-13900K options a powerful 24 cores (eight Raptor Cove high-performance cores and 16 Gracemont energy-efficient cores) in complete and may course of as much as 32 threads concurrently, the Core i7-13700K has 16 cores (8P+8E) and may course of as much as 24 threads directly, and the Core i5-13600K sports activities 14 cores (6P+8E) and may course of as much as 20 threads directly.

Maybe extra importantly, Intel disclosed P-core Max turbo frequencies of the unlocked thirteenth Era Core processors for desktops: 5.40 GHz for the i9-13900K, and 5.30 GHz for the i7-13700K.

Intel’s P-core Max shouldn’t be absolutely the most frequency that the corporate’s fashionable CPUs can run on. For instance, the Core i9-13900K will have the ability to work at 5.70 GHz in Turbo Enhance Max 3.0 mode in addition to at 5.80 GHz in Thermal Velocity Enhance (TVB) mode, offered that they’ve sufficient energy and acceptable cooling. In the meantime, it seems to be just like the top-of-the-range Core i9-13900KS will hit 6.0GHz, however we’re speculating.

Intel does not usually pre-announce specs of its upcoming merchandise, although there may be the reason why Intel may wish to publish a few of Raptor Lake’s specs earlier than launch. AMD is about to start out promoting its next-generation Ryzen 7000-series processors primarily based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture and clearly Intel want to steal a few of AMD’s thunder right here. Additionally, the world’s largest maker of CPUs may wish to reaffirm that it plans to supply a 32-core processor for desktops simply weeks after its arch-rival rolls-out its new 16-core Ryzen merchandise.

Whereas the web page itemizing the specs has since been edited, the small print aren’t stunning and the cat — or dinosaur — is now formally out of the bag. Raptor Lake CPUs are rumored to launch on October 17.
