Leaked roadmap reveals details on Intel's Raptor Lake processors succeeding the Alder Lake family in 2022

The roadmap presented by VideoCardz looks to be a bit outdated since it shows Rocket Lake launching in 2020, but Intel sure seems determined to release a new CPU generation each year. In 2022, we should be getting the Raptor Lake family that includes desktop processors with improved caches for gaming and new vPro instruction sets, while the mobile SKUs will feature LPDDR5x support and DLVR tech for greater power savings.

Intel’s current plan is to release the Alder Lake desktop and mobile CPUs later this year, which is quite problematic for the Rocket Lake models that are launching in a few weeks, since these would be replaced in a little over half a year. Of course, Intel was supposed to launch Rocket Lake in Q4 2020 as we have seen on previous roadmaps, but things got delayed due to the global pandemic, apparently. Speaking of roadmaps, a new internal document that details the generation supposed to follow Alder Lake has been recently leaked by VideoCardz, and it looks like Intel is really trying to stick to an “annual cadence” from now on, even though we still see Rocket Lake slated for a 2020 launch there.

According to the roadmap leaked by VideoCardz, the 13th generation of Intel Core processors that will follow Alder Lake in 2022 is codenamed Raptor Lake and will most likely be a 10 nm Enhanced SuperFin refresh. VideoCardz speculates that it would still feature the same Golden Cove + Gracemont hybrid CPU cores, but, as the roadmap is indicating, these would feature “changes for improved performance,” so we can expect better CPU caches optimized for gaming and new Intel vPro feature sets for the desktop models.

The roadmap also mentions mobile Raptor Lake versions with new DLVR power delivery technology and support for LPDDR5x. We are not exactly sure what DLVR implies. If it is anything like AMD’s patented DLVR tech, it presumably allows for extreme low frequencies for advanced power saving schemes.

As pointed by a VideoCardz chart, we also know that the generation following Raptor Lake is known as Meteor Lake. This 14th gen may feature Intel’s first 7 nm transistors and would get new big cores (Redwood Cove).

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
