Higher clocks and increased cache built to handle AMD’s Raphael ‘Zen 4’ CPUs

Alleged screenshot of an Intel flagship Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU Features up to 68MB of cache Posted by Tweet embed. This may only confirm previous rumors from the same leaker in which he mentioned the massive cache upgrade of the Intel Gen Core 13 range.

The 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake CPU comes with up to 68MB of cache as allegedly spotted in CPU-z

Earlier this year, it was mentioned Intel’s Raptor Lake CPUs can feature 55% more cache than Alder Lake CPUs. While Intel’s Raptor Lake will make minor changes on the architecture side, it does come with improvements in the cache and clock speeds department. As shown in the so-called CPU-z screenshot, it looks like this could actually happen.

The leaker states that Intel Raptor Lake CPUs will have up to 68MB of cache built in (without adding L1 numbers). Intel will certainly not take advantage of any vertical stack cache solution as of now or with CPUs meteor lake As we’ve already seen testing chips without vertical stacking, there’s definitely a future for that at Intel. For now, Intel will introduce more in-CPU cache although there are no details available or the exact number of L3/L2 caches that will display per chip.

Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake processors come with 1,280KB of L2 and 3072KB of L3 cache per core while Gracemont cores feature 2,048KB of L2 and 3,072KB of L3 cache per cluster (the set consists of four Gracemont nuclei). We know that Raptor Lake CPUs will come with an extension Brand new Raptor Cove core design It will offer up to 24 cores and 32 threads. This is 8 Raptor Cove and 16 Gracemont Enhanced Core for the highest SKU for a total of 32 series. If the current cache count is to be considered, that means 36MB of L3 cache for all cores and 18MB of L2 cache giving us a total of 54MB of smart cache for the top SKU. But as said before, Rapor Lake may give us more cache per core.

It is estimated that for 13th generation Raptor Lake CPUs, Intel will have 2MB L2/3MB L3 cache per Raptor Cove core while each Gracemont Cluster will have 4MB L2 cache and 3 MB L3. This will give us 36MB L3 cache across all cores, 16MB (2×8) for P-cores and 16MB (4×4) for the e-core.

Intel Raptor Lake and Alder Lake CPU cache configurations (rumoured):

Linux adds optimized power management for Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs

  • Raptor Lake P-Core L3 – 3MB (3 x 8 = 24MB)
  • Alder Lake P-Core L3 – 3MB (3 x 8 = 24MB)
  • Raptor Lake P-Core L2 – 2MB (2 x 8 = 16MB)
  • Alder Lake P-Core L2 – 1.25MB (1.25 x 8 = 10MB)
  • Raptor Lake E-Core L3 – 3MB (3 x 4 = 12MB)
  • Alder Lake E-Core L3 – 2MB (2 x 2 = 4MB)
  • Raptor Lake E-Core L2-4MB (4 x 4 = 16MB)
  • Alder Lake E-Core L2 – 2MB (2 x 2 = 4MB)
  • Total Lake Raptor Cache (L3 + L2) = 68MB
  • Total Alder Lake Cache (L3 + L2) = 42MB

If true, we’re looking at a 55% increase in the total cache count of the 13th-generation Intel Raptor Lake CPUs. Now AMD will still keep the advantage with its standard Non-V-Cache parts equipped with 64MB of L3 cache and 96MB on the V-Cache SKU but that means the Blue Team can significantly offset its lead with the addition of cache and core counts along with speed Higher clock expected than another optimized 10ESF (Intel 7) process node.

Latency figures are also presented which show that Intel Raptor Lake CPUs can provide better latency in cache-dependent scenarios than Alder Lake. Now, that’s not as cache-sized as AMD’s 3D cache portions which feature up to 96MB of L3 cache and more when L2 is combined with it, but it should improve gaming and workload performance nicely. The leaker has also already He mentioned Raptor Lake CPUs that clock in at 5.8GHz This makes it the fastest CPU on record. So it looks like Intel will rival the Raphael ‘Zen 4’ with more cache, higher clocks, and more cores (in a hybrid way).

Intel Raptor Lake-S Desktop CPU Lineup and Configurations

According to the leaked data, the lineup will consist of three divisions that were Leaked in recent energy recommendations. These include enthusiast SKUs of the ‘K’ series rated at 125 watts, master SKUs of 65 watts, and low-power SKUs of 35 watts. Coming to the cutting edge variants, we will have up to 24 cores followed by 16 cores, 10 cores, 4 cores, and 2 core variants. SKUs are detailed below:

  • Intel Core i9 K-Series (8 Gold + 16 Grace) = 24 cores / 32 threads / 68MB?
  • Intel Core i7 K-Series (8 Gold + 8 Grace) = 16 cores / 24 threads / 54MB?
  • Intel Core i5 K-Series (6 Gold + 8 Grace) = 14 cores / 20 threads / 44MB?
  • Intel Core i5 S-Series (6 Gold + 4 Grace) = 14 cores / 16 threads / 37MB?
  • Intel Core i3 S-Series (4 Gold + 0 Grace) = 4 cores / 8 threads / 20MB?
  • Intel Pentium S-Series (2 Gold + 0 Grace) = 4 cores / 4 threads / 10MB?

The 125W Intel Raptor Lake-S desktop SKUs will feature Core i9 models featuring up to 8 Raptor Cove cores and 16 Gracemont cores for a total of 24 cores and 32 threads. Intel’s Core i7 range will consist of 16 cores (8 + 8), Core i5 models will consist of 14 cores (6 + 8) and 10 cores (6 + 4) and finally, we have the Core i3 models that will have 4 cores but without any efficiency cores . The set will also include Pentium SKUs that will only contain two Raptor Cove cores. All core variants will feature an integrated Xe-optimized GPU from 32 EU (256 cores). Some Core i5 and Pentium variants will also be equipped with 24 EU and 16 EU iGPUs.

Intel Raptor Lake CPU lineup will be launched at the same time as the Intel Raptor Lake CPU lineup The Zen 4 Rapahel family from AMD Which will include the next generation of Ryzen desktop CPUs. the new AM5 . platform It has been confirmed to have DDR5 support while Raptor Lake may offer DDR5 and DDR4 flavor motherboards.
