Rumors about the 13th generation of Intel processors, the Raptor Lake family, are increasingly appearing on the Internet. Intel is expected to put it up for sale this year. This would actually be about the evolution of the Alder Lake processor cores. In practice, this means that processors will offer a much better performance ratio, lower price, and lower power consumption. These processors are also supposed to be based on a 10nm technology called “SuperFin”.
The most powerful Intel processors from the Raptor Lake family (the Raptor Lake-S model) are expected to shift data using 24 processor cores and will provide support for DDR5 system memory and PCIe 5.0 data bus. These will be the processors of the Core i9 family, which, of course, will be intended for the most demanding users. For less demanding users, Core i7, Core i5, Core i3 and Pentium models will be available. Of course, they will still be able to cope with the most demanding tasks.
The power consumption of the new Intel processors is expected to be similar to that of the Intel Alder Lake processors. In practice, this means that processors with a power consumption of 125W, 65W and 35W will be available to end users. Their main advantage is supposed to be a larger amount of cache. This is expected to rise from the current 44 megabytes to 69 megabytes. Each processor core should have 2MB of L2 cache and 3MB of L3 cache.
Gamers are expected to make the most of the new Intel processors. A larger amount of cache should provide more computing power for more demanding tasks. More information about the 13th generation Intel processors is expected in the next few months.
