24 cores, 32 threads, and up to 5.5 GHz in the top model: A leak wants to be able to deliver the complete product code list for Intel’s upcoming 13th chip generation, the Raptor Lake-S family. Intel is preparing to keep the top performance in the single-thread area.
The 13th generation of Intel shows itself in a first leak
With Raptor Lake, Intel is preparing to introduce the successor to the Alder Lake family in the course of the year. Now, according to WCCFtech, AdoredTV wants to be able to offer an overview of the planned line-up of the first Intel Raptor Lake-S chips on the basis of so-called SKUs (Stock Keeping Units), simply said product codes. Part of the new offer is therefore two new core architectures made up of power cores of the Raptor Cove type and improved Gracemont cores for efficiency.
This is followed by the Raptor Lake-S desktop CPUs and configurations that the manufacturer intends to start this year according to the leaked document – currently without the typical Intel numbering.
The Raptor Lake-S family, according to Leak:
- Intel Core i9 K-Series: 8 Raptor + 16 Grace = 24 Cores / 32 Threads / 36 MB Cache
- Intel Core i7 K-Series: 8 Raptor + 8 Grace = 16 Cores / 24 Threads / 30 MB Cache
- Intel Core i5 K-Series: 6 Raptor + 8 Grace = 14 Cores / 20 Threads / 24 MB Cache
- Intel Core i5 S-Series: 6 Raptor + 4 Grace = 14 Cores / 16 Threads / 21 MB Cache
- Intel Core i3 S-Series: 4 Raptors + 0 Grace = 4 Cores / 8 Threads / 12 MB Cache
- Intel Pentium S-Series: 2 Raptors + 0 Grace = 4 Cores / 4 Threads / 6 MB Cache
The top model is a real clock monster
As the list shows, Intel wants to offer 8 performance and 16 efficiency cores at the top with the Core i9 K series and thus comes to 24 cores and 32 threads. In addition, it is currently suspected that an increase in the clock rate of 200 MHz is targeted compared with the Alder Lake-S desktop CPUs. The Raptor Lake-S i9 could reach 5.5 GHz at its peak.
Further innovations that are attributed to all new Chips: a larger L2 cache memory, which Intel probably wants to market as a “game cache”. Support for higher DDR5 speeds is also planned, the leak speaks here of “up to 5600 Mbps.” The TDP values (PL1 rating) for the Raptor Lake family should be 125 watts.
