Intel to launch Raptor Lake desktop processors in the third quarter of 2022

Two-step release again with mobile chips coming only in the fourth quarter.

Last week, Intel slipped a few words about it Thirteenth Generation Core, codenamed Raptor Lake. Like some Alter Lake chips, they benefit from a hybrid architecture with two types of CPU cores; The maximum configuration is only 24 cores / 32 threads, multiplying multiple e-cores by two (up to 16 e-cores). Intel has not yet provided a specific release date, but the Raptor Lake processors are expected to arrive in late 2022. However, according to Moore’s Law Is Dead, the company has decided to move the release forward. Scheduled for the third quarter.

MLID expects the Raptor Lake desktop processors to launch in July, August or September. Keep in mind that the first Alter Lake processors, the K models, have been available since November 2021, but most of the troops have only been available since January.

As for the Raptor Lock processors for laptops, MLID is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Keep in mind that this table change can be triggered by the competitor’s movements: he says to himself. AMD will release its Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” in the summer.

Performance increase from 8 to 15% in a single center

MLID also provides its predictions regarding generational performance gains. According to him, Lake Raptor will allow for an increase of 8 to 15% in a single hub, compared to Alder Lake, to 30 to 40% in multi-core (here it is assumed that the enhanced multi-core gains will increase. In CPI and eight additional E-cores).

The Raptor Lake desktop processors feature the LGA1700 socket and Intel 7 worksheets opened by Alter Aria. They are generally compatible with up to 600 series motherboards.
