Intel started selling processors based on Alder Lake processor cores some time ago. These are the first Intel processors to be built on a 10nm technology called “SuperFin”. These are actually 12th generation Intel processors, and they are much more powerful than their predecessors, so their availability is still very low.
However, Intel is already developing 13th generation processors. These are the Raptor Lake processors that promise a lot at the moment. Intel engineers have already proven this by testing the Core i9-13900K processor in conjunction with the PC game Ashes of the Singularity. This is a processor with up to 32 processor cores, that is, eight P-core cores and 16 E-core. This means that the newcomer is up to twice as much in practice compared to Alder Lake processors.
As it turns out, the 13th generation Intel processors will be fully compatible with motherboards that support the 12th generation Intel processors. These devices will still come with the LGA 1700. In addition to the current motherboards, Intel will also be preparing 700 system blocks for the new processors. Of course, support for both DDR4 and DDR5 system memory will be provided here. The 13th generation of Intel processors is expected to go on sale in the second half of this year.
