Intel ‘Raptor Lake’: Engineering Preview Shows Performance Plus of 20%

The 13th generation Intel Core processors could deliver a decent performance boost of about 20 percent. This is suggested by testing with a technical sample that is said to match the Intel Core i9-13900. However, there are some limitations. The Chinese Portal EXP rating was apparently able to obtain a sample of a chip from Intel’s “Raptor Lake” series, which is believed to be the successor to Intel’s current “Alder Lake” family of 12th-generation Core SoCs. The specs of the monster should match those of a chip that could eventually be marketed as the Core i9-13900, i.e. the flagship model of the new series.

The monster must match the top model of the ‘Raptor Lake’ family

However, in their first benchmark tests with the new chip, there was the problem that the new SoC could only be tested at standard frequencies, so you had to work with a very low base clock of only 1.4 gigahertz. Even at this slow speed, most multi-threaded tests showed performance advantages of about 20 percent with the new “Raptor Lake” chip compared to the Intel Core i9-12900K used for comparison.

The example of the new “Raptor Lake” processor has eight performance and 16 efficiency cores, which means that the number of efficient low-end cores has doubled compared to the predecessor. In addition, the new chip relies on more modern high-end cores, which are called “Raptor Cove”.

While most of the usual productivity applications and benchmarks showed clear performance gains, although the tests were performed on the current hardware base in the form of a motherboard and chipset that were not optimized for the new chip, the increase in the game area decreased by 2 at least. 3 percent.

In combination with appropriately modified hardware and with the expected significantly higher clock speeds, “Raptor Lake” could show a significant performance improvement. Among other things, Intel could break the 6 gigahertz mark for the first time in the consumer market and thus be ahead of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 series, at least in terms of boosting clock speeds. The new “Raptor Lake” family is expected later this year.
