Raptor Lake in Benchmark Database

A new Intel CPU has appeared in a benchmark database that is believed to be Raptor Lake. The model would confirm the rumored more cores.

A previously unpublished Intel CPU made its first appearance on the Internet, which reported 24 cores and 32 threads and is believed to be Raptor Lake. The entry was quickly removed and a screenshot of Tom’s Hardware has been roaming the internet ever since. If the information is correct, it would be confirmed that Intel is increasing the number of cores with the next generation of heterogeneous processors.

According to current knowledge, Raptor Lake will be the 13th generation of core processors and the second attempt with a hybrid design. In August, the news made the rounds that Intel is planning a configuration of 8 P-Cores and 16 E-Cores and that is exactly what has now been confirmed in the benchmark database. The entry is definitely an engineering sample and the release of the processors is still an estimated nine months to a year in the future, which still leaves some leeway. For Raptor Lake, however, it was mainly expected that Intel would refine the architecture and not bring any wild innovations.

The CPU reports accordingly for the LGA1700, which will probably be used for a little longer. DDR5 runs in the database entry with 2,400 MHz on two channels: But there were rumors that the speed will generally be increased to DDR5-5600 or 2,800 MHz. Intel also stays with Node 7, which means that you have to squeeze the extra cores into a very similar TDP window. There have been rumors that Intel can use DLVR (Digital Linear Voltage Regulator) to improve efficiency in double digits. Together with improvements to the architecture, this could leave room for more cores.

And there were even a few benchmark results in the BAPCO, but they are below those of a comparable Core i9-12900K. This is probably due to the fact that the engineering sample of the Raptor Lake model has to work with relatively low clock rates. In general, the benchmark is also said to be Intel-friendly, which is why you should be a little careful with the rating anyway. Raptor Lake is set for Q4 / 2022 according to the rumor mill; the successor Meteor Lake (change to Intel’s Node 4) for Q2 / 2023. For Arrow Lake in Q4 / 2023, 8 + 32 cores are said to be on the program.
