We’re right here in Israel for Intel’s Know-how Tour 2022, the place the corporate is sharing new details about its newest merchandise, a lot of it underneath embargo till a later date. Nonetheless, the corporate did share a slide touting that Raptor Lake is able to working at 6GHz at inventory settings and that it has set a world overclocking file at 8GHz – clearly with liquid nitrogen (this is our deep dive on the Thirteenth-Gen Intel processors). Intel additionally shared spectacular efficiency projections for single- and multi-thread efficiency.
Notably, the height of 6 GHz is 300 MHz quicker than the 5.7 GHz for AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors, however Intel hasn’t introduced which product will hit that peak pace. We additionally aren’t positive if a 6GHz chip will arrive with the primary wave of chips or be a particular version ‘KS’ mannequin. Intel additionally claimed that Raptor Lake can have a 15% acquire in single-threaded efficiency and a 41% acquire in multi-threaded, as measured by SPECintrate_2017 and in comparison with Alder Lake, and an general ‘40% efficiency scaling.’
You’ll be able to see the 6GHz inventory clocks and eight GHz world file listed within the final entry within the above timeline. The Israel Growth Heart (IDC) has been the design engine behind an extended line of Intel merchandise spanning again to the 8088 that began all of it again in 1979 (this is a glance again). That lineup spans till immediately, encompassing well-known names like Pentium MXX, Banias, Sandy Bridge, and plenty of others.
All of this culminates, at the very least for now, with the Thirteenth-gen Raptor Lake processors that Intel will formally announce quickly, although the corporate clearly has many different designs within the pipeline, like Meteor Lake, Lunar Lake, and different processors on the corporate’s roadmaps.
Apart from the teaser in regards to the 6 GHz peak working clocks at inventory and the brand new 8 GHz overclocking file for Raptor Lake (although we aren’t positive if it’s the general world file or merely a world file for Intel’s 10nm chips), the corporate hasn’t shared extra particulars but. Naturally, extra info will comply with throughout the NDA’d conferences held over the subsequent a number of days, and we’ll share that info quickly. We’re significantly to be taught pricing and energy consumption particulars, although we already know many of the particulars of the specs. You’ll be able to see these in our Raptor Lake all we all know.
Intel can be sharing rather more details about its design and validation course of, with the slide above touting that the Raptor Lake growth cycle was eight months shorter on account of backward compatibility with Alder Lake.
This fast turnaround time was vital as a result of the Raptor Lake chips weren’t on the roadmap as little as two years in the past — Intel solely added the chip to its roadmap as a result of a ‘future product’ was delayed (presumably Meteor Lake, although we have not confirmed).
Intel has been very forthcoming with particulars thus far, sharing attention-grabbing particulars just like the picture above — as an illustration, this handwritten guidelines is the primary record of design objectives for Alder Lake.
We’re right here on the occasion for the subsequent a number of days and can have extra protection quickly.
