Losing the desktop processor market to AMD, Intel is accelerating its work. The company, which will introduce Rocket Lake processors at the end of the month, plans to make its main debut with Alder Lake. The American manufacturer’s roadmap for 2022 has also emerged. According to this leaked map, the 13th generation Intel Raptor Lake processor family has also come to light.
Intel, which switched to hybrid design with the Alder Lake processor family, will continue this understanding in the 13th generation.
What does the 12th generation Intel Raptor Lake series promise?
Intel’s roadmap for 2022 has been leaked, Videocardz exclusively reported. The leaked roadmap is clearly not new. According to the table, the Rocket Lake family was supposed to be introduced in 2020, but these processors will debut at the end of March. But despite this, it has been confirmed that the new 13th generation processors will be named Raptor Lake.
The leaked table not only confirms that 13th generation Intel processors will be called Raptor Lake, but also indicates some key features.
Raptor Lake desktop
Raptor Lake desktop processors are basically a refurbished version of the Alder Lake series. There are no plans to bring a completely different kernel architecture or reduce the nm size. The processor family, which comes with a new cache optimized for games, will undergo advanced 10 nm SuperFin production. Intel’s 7 nm adventure, it seems, falls to the 14th generation.
Raptor Lake mobile
Interestingly, Intel plans to launch Raptor Lake for both the desktop and mobile market. Tiger Lake mobile processors actually correspond to a series that has never been seen on the desktop side of Intel. Because Intel will go into production with Alder Lake in the desktop market at 10 nm. But Tiger Lake processors, introduced last year, are already going through a 10 nm process.
Intel Raptor Lake mobile processors will have DLVR power distribution. Although the American manufacturer uses this term for the first time, it is thought to be related to the dynamic voltage regulator With this technology, the voltage leading to the processor can be reached more controlled and balanced. In addition, it turns out that LPDDR5X memory will be supported with new processors.
In addition, it is stated that the LGA 1700 socket, which comes with 12th generation processors, will be used for three generations.
