For these of you who’re ready for Intel to launch its thirteenth Gen Core processors based mostly on Raptor Lake, chances are you’ll get your want in about 11 weeks. The chip maker introduced that this 12 months’s two-day Intel Innovation occasion will happen September 27-28, 2022 in San Jose, California, with consumer computing on the docket of subjects.
Don’t take this to imply that Intel will 100% be saying Raptor Lake in the course of the occasion. However, Intel is on monitor to roll out its next-gen CPUs this 12 months, and it’s no less than believable that the thirteenth Gen lineup can be unveiled both throughout or someday relatively near the upcoming occasion. We’d even say it is relatively possible, given what occurred finally 12 months’s occasion.
In case anybody has forgotten, Alder Lake made its formal debut finally 12 months’s Intel Innovation occasion on October 27, 2021. And since we hold listening to that Intel’s Arc desktop graphics playing cards can be obtainable within the US this summer season, that leaves Raptor Lake as the opposite main consumer know-how launch by the point this 12 months’s occasion rolls round.
Speculation apart, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger is scheduled for a keynote on the occasion. So is Intel CTO Greg Lavender. Confirmed technical session tracks embrace the next…
- AI and Machine Learning
- Innovation for the Future
- IoT, 5G, and Edge
- Open Accelerated Computing
The opening keynote is scheduled to run from 9:00-10:00am (presumably PT). Then after that there are a number of periods, panels, and showcases that may run by means of 10:00pm (with three breaks alongside the best way). Then on the second day, one other keynote is scheduled for a similar time, adopted by extra panels and the such till the closing keynote that runs from 4:00-5:00pm.
As for Raptor Lake, Intel has already confirmed some particulars. Intel talked a bit about Raptor Lake throughout its Investor Meeting earlier this 12 months, noting it is going to be constructed on its Intel 7 course of be aware and provide as much as a double digit efficiency enhance over Alder Lake. We additionally know that Raptor Lake can be supplied with as much as 24 cores (8 P-cores and 16-E cores) and 32 threads and can help “enhanced overclocking features” of some sort.
Raptor Lake may even be drop-in suitable with present Alder Lake platforms. In reality, corporations like ASRock, ASUS, and MSI have already begun pushing out BIOS updates for a number of present 600-series motherboards in preparation for Raptor Lake.
