Rumor | Full list of Intel 13th gen Raptor Lake SKUs leak, Intel apparently looking to hit a world record 5.5 GHz turbo and retain single-threaded dominance with the Core i9-13900K

The complete SKUs list of Intel's upcoming 13th gen Raptor Lake-S family has leaked, thanks to AdoredTV. Raptor Lake will be segmented into large, mid, and small dies with the flagship Core i9-13900K (?) touted to feature 24 cores and 32 threads. With Raptor Lake, Intel apparently is looking to retain the single-thread performance crown for itself.

Intel Raptor Lake is the designated successor to Alder Lake and is set to launch some time later next year. Information about Raptor Lake-S has been scarce to come by, but Jim from AdoredTV seems to have gathered some juicy details already including a complete SKU list

So far, we hear that Raptor Lake will build upon Alder Lake's hybrid ISA while offering improved cache for gaming along with a new vPro feature set and DLVR power delivery. We also get to hear that Raptor Lake will continue to feature the energy-efficient Gracemont cores but now with up to 16 cores. The big cores will get an upgrade to Raptor Cove. Today's leak from AdoredTV seems to agree with this information for the most part.

According to Jim, Alder Lake's tape-in may be have been delayed from March to around June this year. Nevertheless, the Raptor Cove cores have been showing improved power and performance figures given the improved IPC, clocks, and a larger L2 cache. Though there are no estimates on the purported IPC improvements, dramatic gains are not to be expected gen-on-gen from Alder Lake — Intel is probably saving that for Meteor Lake, we hear. 

However, up to a 200 MHz increase in boost clocks can be expected and, apparently, Intel is looking to set a world record by hitting the 5.5 GHz boost frequency mark while aiming for an "undisputed single-threaded performance leadership". On the memory front, Raptor Lake will support up to 5.6 GHz DDR5 memory on desktop and 6.4 GHz LPDDR5 on mobile SKUs.

Early Raptor Lake-S SKU list

Jim has also managed to gather the complete Raptor Lake-S SKU list. The classification goes like:

  • Large Die - 8 Raptor Cove cores + 16 Gracemont Atom cores
  • Mid Die - 8 Raptor Cove cores + 8 Gracemont Atom cores
  • Small Die - 6 Raptor Cove cores + 0 Gracemont Atom cores

Before we move on, it helps to note that this is still preliminary information. The product is more than a year away from launch and things can very well change in the meanwhile. Also, we do not yet know Raptor Lake's naming scheme. Though the Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 nomenclature would still be used, it is not clear whether Intel would start their numbering with 13 or avoid it for superstitious reasons.

Overall, it looks like Raptor Lake will feature a similar core configuration across enthusiast (125 W), mainstream (65 W), and low power (35 W) variants. The Core i9 would top out at 24 cores and 32 threads while the Core i7s would sport 16 cores and 24 threads.

The Core i5 lineup will be comprised of a mix of 14-core 20-thread and 10-core 16-thread parts. Intel is probably looking to make the most of the 24-core and 16-core silicon that have not passed the binning requirements for the higher-end SKUs.

Finally, we have the Core i3s with a 4-core 8-thread configuration and the dual-core Pentiums, which will also be available in 65 W and 35 W variants. Jim said that there could be a Celeron in the works as well, but that is not likely to have any hyperthreading support. 

Jim also mentioned that Intel has already taped-in Meteor Lake in Q2 2021. Meteor Lake will be part of the Intel 4 family and will be fabbed on a 7 nm process.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
