Raptor Lake: Core 13000 CPUs up to 5.8 GHz

The upcoming Intel processors of the 13000 series, alias Raptor Lake, should reach up to 5.8 GHz in boost.

Intel has just released a new processor, the Core i9-12900KS, which is supposed to hold its own against the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. While Intel relies on a higher clock for the improved Core i9-12900K, AMD wants to improve performance with a stacked 3D V-Cache. With a boost clock of up to 5.5 GHz, the maximum is currently reached for Intel processors. For the next generation Raptor Lake (Core 13000), however, Intel could turn the boost screw again. According to the leaker

will allow Raptor Lake another 200 to 300 MHz more.

Increased power consumption

This means that the up to eight Raptor Cove cores of the Core i9-13900K have boost speeds of up to 5.8 GHz. Intel wants to produce Raptor Lake using the same 10-nanometer manufacturing process as the current Alder Lake chips. As a result, the expected increase in clock speed should result in higher power consumption, since Intel has to work with higher voltages. Adequate cooling of the processor could also have a negative impact.

Only flagship affected

For this reason, the power consumption and the temperature with Raptor Lake should increase again. Intel probably puts the energy efficiency behind the performance in order to be able to keep up with the powerful AMD CPUs. However, if you do not opt ​​for the top-of-the-line Core i9 model, but instead get by with a Core i3, i5 or i7 from Intel for your gaming or office computer, you should also need less energy for operation due to the significantly lower clock rates.
