Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs & Z790 Platform To Be Announced on 27th September, Launch on 20th October

Date:

Now that AMD has finally unveiled its Ryzen 7000 CPUs and AM5 platform, it’s time to switch to Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs and the Z790 platform.

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs Launched October 20, Includes Z790 Motherboards And Unlocked SKUs

The latest information has been leaked by @wxnod who managed to get hold of a full Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake schematic during a presentation in China. According to the presentation, it looks like Intel will officially introduce the Raptor Lake chips on September 27 (Taiwan 28) and the launch will take place about a month later on October 20. Meanwhile, Intel is taking pre-orders for the chips. Based on the information we have:

Intel Raptor Lake-S processors and Intel Z790 chipset: K & KF consumer CPU enthusiasts only

  • Product information Embargo date: September 27, 2022 at 9:20 a.m. PT (Intel Innovation ’22)
  • Date of sales embargo: October 20, 2022 @ 6:00 a.m. PT

Intel Raptor Lake-S Processors Commercial and Entry Workstation

  • Product information Embargo date: February 19 – March 18, 2023
  • Date of sales embargo: February 19 – March 18, 2023

Keep in mind that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs and AM5 platform will hit store shelves on the same day as Intel’s announcement. According to the schedule, Intel will take pre-orders for the Core i9-13900K (F) on September 27, while pre-orders for the Core i7-13700K (F) and Core i5-13600K (F) will open on October 13. We don’t currently have the embargo date, but this means that the Blue Team will launch its next-gen parts almost a month after AMD’s Zen 4 lands on the desktop PC platforms.

Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs will use the hybrid core design, with a mix of performance-optimized ‘P’ and efficiency-optimized ‘E’ cores. For the new chips, Intel will use a brand new P-Core known as Raptor Cove, which will replace the Golden Cove cores on the Alder Lake CPUs. For The E-Core, Intel will keep the existing Gracemont core architecture, but it will come with minor improvements. Following are some of the key changes you can expect:

Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs Expected Features:

  • Up to 24 cores and 32 wires
  • Brand new Raptor Cove CPU cores (higher P-Core IPC)
  • Based on 10nm ESF ‘Intel 7’ process node
  • Up to 6.0 GHz clock speeds (expected)
  • Double the E-Cores on certain variants
  • Increased cache for both P-Cores and E-Cores
  • Supported on existing LGA 1700 motherboards
  • New Z790, H770 and B760 motherboards
  • Up to 28 PCIe lanes (PCH Gen 4 + Gen 3)
  • Up to 28 PCIe lanes (CPU Gen 5 x16 + Gen 4 x12)
  • Dual-channel DDR5-5600 memory support
  • 20 PCIe Gen 5 lanes
  • Improved overclocking features
  • 125W PL1 TDP (Flagship SKUs)
  • AI PCIe M.2 technology
  • Launch Q4 2022 (possibly in October)

So starting with the lineup, there are a total of 14 SKUs, including four Core i9 models, four Core i7 models, five Core i5 models, and a single Core i3 model. There are three revisions of the CPUs starting with H-0 for the single Core i3 model, C-0 for the Core i5-13400, Core i5-13500 & Core i5-13600 while the rest are based on the B- 0 revision .

The H0 and C0 revisions may have similar silicon and die structures to existing Alder Lake parts minus the improved cache of the Raptor Lake designs, while the B0 silicon has the added cache.

Intel Core i9-13900K 24 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specifications

The Intel Core i9-13900K is the flagship Raptor Lake CPU, with 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The CPU is configured at a base clock of 3.0 GHz, a single-core boost clock of 5.8 GHz (1-2) cores, and an all-core boost clock of 5.5 GHz (all 8 P cores). The CPU has 68 MB of combined cache and a PL1 value of 125 W that goes up to 250 W. The CPU can also consume up to 350 W of power when using the “Extreme Performance Mode”, which we described here a few hours ago.

  • Core i9-13900K 8+16 (24/32) – 3.0 / 5.8GHz – 66MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 250W+ (PL2)?
  • Core i9-12900K 8+8 (16/24) – 3.2 / 5.2GHz – 30MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)

Intel Core i7-13700K 16 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specifications

The Intel Core i7-13700K CPU will be the fastest 13th generation Core i7 chip offered within the Raptor Lake CPU family. The chip has a total of 16 cores and 24 threads. This configuration is made possible with 8 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove architecture and 8 E-Cores based on the Grace Mont core architecture. The CPU comes with 30 MB L3 cache and 24 MB L2 cache for a total combined 54 MB cache. The chip ran at a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 5.40 GHz. The all-core boost is rated at 5.3GHz for the P-Cores, while the E-Cores have a base clock of 3.4GHz and a boost clock of 4.3GHz.

  • Core i7-13700K 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 / 5.3 GHz – 54 MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 244W (PL2)?
  • Core i7-12700K 8+4 (12/20) – 3.6 / 5.0GHz, 25MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 190W (PL2)

Intel Core i5-13600K 14 Core Raptor Lake CPU Specifications

The Intel Core i5-13600K has a total of 14 cores, including 6 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove and 8 E-Cores based on the current Gracemont cores. That’s the same number of P-Core as the Intel Core i5-12600K, but the number of E-Core has doubled. So we’re looking at a 40% core count bump and a 25% thread count bump versus the Alder Lake Core i5-12600K. The CPU comes with 24MB of L3 and 20MB of L2 cache for a combined total of 44MB of cache. The clock speeds are set to 3.5GHz base, 5.2GHz boost and 5.1GHz all-core boost, while the E-Cores operate on 3.5GHz base and 3.9GHz boost clocks.

  • Core i5-13600K 6+8 (14/20) – 3.5 / 5.1 GHz – 44 MB cache, 125W (PL1) /180W (PL2)?
  • Core i5-12600K 6+4 (10/16) – 3.6 / 4.9GHz – 20MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 150W (PL2)

Moving on to the rest of the SKUs, we obviously have the lower TDP-optimized 65W Non-K SKUs. The Intel Core i5-13400 seems to be a nice upgrade from the Core i5-12400 as it now offers a total of 4 E-Cores in addition to the 6 P-Cores, which should help improve multi-threaded performance. The Core i5-13500 is another upgraded variant that offers a step up to 6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores, as opposed to the Core i5-12400 and Core i5-12500 which share an identical configuration without any P-Cores. The Core i3 series has only 1 SKU and that is the Core i3-13100 which keeps its 4-core and 8-thread layout.
