Leak indicates Intel's 13th gen Core i9-13900K will pack 24 cores and 32 threads ↺
Intel’s 13th gen Raptor Lake processors are coming along faster than we’ve anticipated as a recent leak has pointed to the company preparing Bootlog for its 13th gen chips. A Bootlog, as the name suggests, is a log of the entire boot process that manufacturers build into hardware devices. In case of errors during the boot process, Bootlog records every event. Hardware manufacturers later use this log to see what went wrong.
According to Tom’s Hardware, Bootlog information obtained by Coelacanth-dream point to a Raptor Lake chip with 24 cores and 32 threads. The SKU is more than likely the 13th gen Intel Core i9-13900K, as it aligns with our previous reporting about the next-gen Core i9.
The Intel Core i9-13900K is allegedly a 24-core chip with 16 E-cores (Efficiency) and 8 P-cores (Performance). As a comparison, Intel’s current performance champion, the Core i9-12900K, has 8 P-cores and 8 E-cores. So, the Core i9-13900K will have double the E-cores than its predecessor.
Finally, the Bootlog code also showed that Intel has no interest in adding AVX-512 instruction set support to its 13th gen processors. AVX-512 accelerates data processing such as scientific simulations, machine learning, and 3D modeling among others. Intel had disabled the AVX-512 instruction set on its consumer-grade hardware because of the hybrid nature of the Alder Lake processors.
