Intel has just announced its thirteenth generation Raptor Lake processors, which, although they use the same hybrid architecture as its predecessor, the Alder Lake, register an increase in the number of cores, whose purpose is to optimize the most demanding tasks, from productivity, to video games and content creation.
Some of the biggest specs are that its top line, Intel Core i9, will have 24 cores and 32 threads, plus the performance cores will run at a maximum frequency of 5.4 GHz.
The Intel Core i7 will have 16 cores, 24 threads and up to 5.3 GHZ performance cores, while the i5 will have 14 cores, 22 threads and a maximum frequency of 5.1 GHz.
It is worth mentioning that the Core i9 and i7 processors will be able to use a pair of performance cores to increase their standard frequency up to 6 GHz, as well as 8 GHz through the process of overclocking, in order to improve the most demanding gaming or streaming experiences. .
Overclocking is a technique that consists of increasing the clock frequency of a component so that it is higher than that offered by the manufacturer and indicates the speed at which a computer performs its most basic operations.
The importance of the standard frequency that Intel reaches with this processor lies in the difference it establishes with AMD’s Ryzen 7000, which is at a frequency of 5.7 Ghz
Mandy Mock, vice president of customer computing at Intel, points out that this generation of processors is important for people who are always connected and looking for more capacity during their work.
Over its predecessor, Raptor Lake features a 15% improvement in single-threaded performance and a 41% improvement in multi-threaded performance. “It’s a step forward for people to be better at their jobs,” says Mock.
He also mentions that one of the most significant differences is the presence of a greater number of cores compared to Alder Lake, which “will allow you to do more with your system and it does not apply only to creators, but also to those who carry carry out the most daily tasks.
In terms of image, this new generation will allow access to high-quality content viewing on up to four screens at simultaneous 4K and 60 fps quality or up to 8K and 60 fps HDR video with dynamic noise suppression.
As for everyday tasks, Mock points out, the new processor is designed to better handle multithreaded and background tasks, such as minimized browser tabs and cloud sync services, leaving the cores free to deliver uninterrupted performance. .
Another feature of Raptor Lake that Intel highlights is that it optimizes workloads by helping the operating system scheduler intelligently distribute workloads to the optimal cores.
It also has the ability to process AI-based voice and audio applications, such as neural noise cancellation, while freeing up CPU resources for overall system performance and responsiveness.
The company detailed that the new Intel thirteenth generation Intel Core processors for desktops will be available from October 20, 2022, About the rest of the family, the details will be shared later.
