intel 13 generation

Intel’s 13.3rd-Gen Raptor Lake CPUs are expected to have more cores, greater connectivity and a new core architecture as well as compatibility with PCIe 5.0 SSDs, and perhaps even a 6.0 high-speed clock to bring. This is not even including the possibility of IPC enhancements. These chips will debut in the year 2012 to compete against AMD’s Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors which will set an ideal stage for close contest for the top desktop PC especially for the title of the most powerful gaming CPU when the Intel rivalry between Intel and AMD competition enters an entirely new phase.

Intel 13th-gen Raptor Lake: Specifications

Raptor Lake CPUs, in case you’re unaware they’ll be Intel’s 13th-generation processors. They’ll be essentially a sequel on Alder Lake CPUs. Alder Lake CPUs that are dominating the charts of performance currently. These Raptor Lake CPUs are expected to offer better performance due to an upgraded 10nm design.
