Intel has revealed the specifications for its upcoming 13th Gen processor, which is expected to be the successor to the current Alder Lake processor. While the exact number has not been revealed yet, the chip is expected to be about six GHz. The company’s vice president of desktop and workstation, Mandy Mock, confirmed the figure in official slides.
The 13th Gen processor is expected to be released in September. AMD is also expected to release its Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors around the same time as Intel. The Ryzen 7600X is one of the most anticipated chips to be introduced this year. In terms of performance, this chip is set to compete with the Intel Core i5-12600K.
Intel’s newest processor will replace the previous 12th Gen Alder Lake chip, which will be released in 2021. The processor will be capable of 24 cores and up to 32 threads, and will be the most powerful for PC gaming. The company’s website is currently a cached version of the specifications, so it’s possible to read them now.
The 13th Gen Core CPU will offer an increase in multithreaded performance by 41 percent. The company plans to launch the new CPUs on September 27 at its “Innovation 2022” event. PCWorld won’t be able to attend the event due to health reasons, but we will be able to follow the company’s progress with the latest information.
As we’ve already seen, Apple has already made the transition to its own silicon, and AMD is making strides in performance and battery life. Regardless of which company dominates the mobile world, there’s no time for Intel to sit still. In order to stay competitive, it needs to continue to innovate, and the 13th Gen processor is no different.
According to an article by Tom’s Hardware, the Raptor Lake processor will have a larger L3 cache and a higher clock speed. However, it is still unclear how much of an improvement this will make over current 12th Gen processors. The information released so far, however, gives us a lot to look forward to.
Intel’s 12th Gen Core processors have an incredible number of features that allow for exceptional performance. These processors come with industry-leading features such as Intel’s Killer Wi-Fi 6E that significantly reduces lag, latency, and packet loss. They also come with a Thunderbolt 4 universal cable, which makes them ideal for external device expansion.
Intel’s new processors are expected to be more efficient and offer superior multi-core performance than previous generations of processors. As a result, they should offer improved battery life as well. This is good news for laptop users, as a 13th Gen processor is expected to use less power than a previous generation of CPUs. Moreover, the new chips will support DDR5 memory, which makes the switch from the current platform even more affordable.
As of now, Intel’s Core i9-12900K CPUs are the fastest desktop CPUs on the market. Nevertheless, AMD is facing stiff competition from Intel and has already announced the Ryzen 7000 series CPU. The upcoming CPUs will be 15% and 41% faster at single and multi-threaded workloads, according to reports.
