Intel confirmed lately throughout its Q2 2022 earnings name that the thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake cellular CPUs will launch later this 12 months. There will likely be two variations of the thirteenth Gen CPUs, desktop, and cellular variants, with each releasing in direction of the second half of this 12 months, one 12 months after the cellular model of the twelfth Gen Core Alder Lake cellular processors.

Intel Confirms thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake Mobile CPUs Launching After Desktop CPUs In Late 2023

The Alder Lake desktop collection, Alder Lake-S, was launched final 12 months in direction of the tip of October. Non-Okay variations of the chip didn’t launch till January this 12 months, whereas the Alder Lake cellular collection debuted a month later. After the Alder Lake, cellular P and H-series processors launched the ultimate HX chipset, a desktop-focused processor, which arrived in May 2022.

We are constructing on Alder Lake management with Raptor Lake within the second half of this 12 months and Meteor Lake in 2023 […] To date, we’ve shipped greater than 35 million items of Alder Lake. Within the present market, we additionally see relative energy within the premium segments we serve throughout client and industrial. We anticipate to construct on this momentum with the launch of our next-gen product household – Raptor Lake – beginning with our desktop SKUs this fall, adopted by our cellular household by the tip of the 12 months. The Raptor Lake household will provide clients important benefits, together with double-digit efficiency positive factors gen-on-gen and socket compatibility with Alder Lake. And in 2023, we’ll ship our first disaggregated CPU constructed on Intel 4 – Meteor Lake – which is displaying good health in our and our clients’ labs.

—Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel, discussing the second quarter earnings, July 28, 2022

Intel additionally introduced the corporate’s yearly Innovation occasion, which is able to occur on September 28, 2022, where the corporate is anticipating revealing the Raptor Lake desktop processors. The Raptor Lake CPUs are anticipated to ship in October.

Like the desktop components which we already know a number of configurations of, the cellular Intel thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake lineup can include elevated core and clocks. The desktop variants will get a bump from 16 cores and 24 threads to 24 cores and 32 threads with clocks reaching above 5.5 GHz. For cellular, we are able to see an increase in variety of cores too, particularly the E-cores however whether or not the blue crew saves them up for a Raptor Lake-HX vaiant stays to be seen.

Another anticipated Intel improvement launched quickly is the corporate’s NUC Extreme techniques, that are anticipated to plan throughout the fourth quarter of 2022. The new NUC Extreme techniques will provide the brand new Raptor Lake desktop CPU variants and are additionally anticipated to launch later this fall.
