Las month, Intel launched their 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors. These CPUs are built on a hybrid architecture using Gracemont power-efficient cores and Raptor Cove for its performance cores. Intel is promising up to 15% better single-threaded performance and up to 41% improved multi-threaded performance on Raptor Lake.

Core counts remain untouched generation with the i5 models packing 6 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores, i7s with 8 performance and efficiency cores, and the i9 variants getting 16 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores.

The CPUs will have increased CPU support of up to DDR5-5600 and retains DDR4 compatibility. PCIe 5.0 support is still present and they will be backward compatible with 600 series motherboards with a BIOS update.


Of course, Intel is also launching the 700 series motherboards with their new processors. These new boards will have up to 8 additional PCIe 4.0 lanes with up to 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 support, and DMI Gen 4.0.
