Since the official announcement of the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors last year, the American multinational technology company has been gearing up to unveil the next-generation processors – Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake processor.

However, as we just discovered, it seems the American tech giant is about to announce the next-generation processor. Recently, Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake processor was exposed online at the NAS Workshop held in Shenzhen, China.

At the NAS Workshop, the details of Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake desktop CPU platform were leaked suggesting some expected configurations in the upcoming processor. The slides at the NSA Workshop revealed that the new Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs appear to be optimized versions of the 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs.

Besides that, the next-generation processor equally shared the same 10nm ESF “Intel 7” process node, P-Core and E-Core designs, and support for existing motherboards.

Additionally, Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs will come with up to 24 cores and 32 threads, and a new Raptor Cove CPU core (higher P-Core IPC) Supports existing LGA 1700 motherboards and dual-channel DDR5-5600 memory. Likewise, the processor will be based on a 10nm ESF ‘Intel 7’ process node, 20 PCIe Gen 5 lanes, enhanced overclocking function, and 125W PL1 TDP (Flagship SKUs).

As per the leak, Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake processor continues to use the LGA 1700 platform and will be compatible with existing LGA 1700 motherboards based on the 600-series chipset, as confirmed by Chipzilla. However, as with each generation, motherboard manufacturers will offer a completely new lineup of motherboards based on the 700-series chipsets with more I/O channels.

Furthermore, Raptor Lake chips will support DDR5-5600 speeds, which is a significant improvement over Alder Lake’s native DDR5-5200 speeds. On D4 series motherboards, the CPU will also continue to support DDR4-3200.

Given the above, it seems the tech giant has done an excellent upgrade path for users who are currently running a mainstream Core i3 or Core i5 CPU and want to move up to a higher-end chip. With this, they can simply replace their existing 12th Gen CPUs with higher-end Core i7 or Core i9 SKUs to improve the overall performance of their PC.
