Fritzchens Fritz (opens in new tab) has printed detailed die photographs of Intel’s Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake processor with 24 cores whole. The brand new CPU is noticeably greater than its Alder Lake predecessor, with 16 cores, which is just about expectable given the upper core depend of the most recent GPU and its bigger cache.
Intel’s newest top-of-the-range thirteenth Era Raptor Lake for desktops has a die measurement of 252.65 mm^2, up from 215.25 mm^2 within the case of Alder Lake CPU for desktops. As well as, the brand new Raptor Lake processor packs eight high-performance Raptor Cove cores and 16 energy-efficient Gracemont cores. In distinction, its predecessor solely has eight Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores. Moreover, the brand new chip carries 32MB of L2 cache in whole and a 36MB L3 cache, whereas its ancestor options 14MB of L2 cache and a 30MB L3 cache.
As anticipated, P-cores are significantly bigger than Effectivity cores: with out L2/L3 caches, every occupies 7.429 mm^2 of die house, whereas the smaller core with out L2/L3 caches is just one.58 mm^2 giant. Extra detailed images can be found at Fritzchens Fritz’s Flickr (opens in new tab).

In the meantime, each CPUs rely upon the identical Intel 7 (previously referred to as Intel 10nm Enhanced SuperFin) fabrication know-how, so the newer one ought to have a significantly greater die measurement and better value.
Moreover the variety of cores, greater caches, and bigger die measurement; Raptor Lake has a lot in widespread with Alder Lake. Each CPUs use a hoop bus interconnect to hyperlink their cores with the graphics engine, enter/output interfaces, and reminiscence controller. As well as, the high-performance cores are organized as an array of eight cores, whereas energy-efficient cores are grouped into quads. Whereas Intel’s flagship Core i9-13900K has all 24 cores enabled, cheaper fashions will disable a few of the cores.
