Several Intel Z790 motherboards from ASUS, ASRock & MSI have leaked out forward of their full unveil subsequent week by Videocardz. The motherboards embody merchandise from ASUS, ASRock & MSI, giving us a greater take a look at what the next-gen designs have to supply.

ASUS, ASRock, MSI Z790 Motherboards Leak Out, Designed For Intel’s thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs

There are a complete of 16 motherboards which have leaked out which embody 4 ASUS, six MSI & six ASRock merchandise. The motherboards embody:

Intel thirteenth Gen ‘Raptor Lake’ CPUs LGA 1700 Platform

Intel is sticking with its LGA 1700 platform for not less than yet one more CPU lineup and that is Raptor Lake. Chipzilla confirmed that Raptor Lake CPUs will likely be appropriate with the prevailing LGA 1700 boards primarily based on the 600-series chipset. But like every technology, motherboard makers will likely be providing a model new lineup of motherboards primarily based on the 700-series chipset which is able to include greater I/O lanes. In addition to that, Raptor Lake chips will likely be supporting DDR5-5600 speeds which is a pleasant bump over the native DDR5-5200 speeds that Alder Lake helps.

The Intel Z790 chipset will provide 20 PCIe Gen 4 & 8 PCIe Gen 3 lanes whereas the CPUs will characteristic 16 PCIe Gen 5 and 4 PCIe Gen 4 lanes. We know that the motherboard maker may have a number of merchandise which is able to cut up the x16 discrete graphics card lanes with an x4 PCIe Gen 5 M.2 slot. Intel will not have native PCIe Gen 5 M.2 help until 14th Gen Meteor Lake chips.

This gives a pleasant improve path to customers who’re at present working a mainstream Core i3 or Core i5 CPU and wish to improve to a higher-end chip. They can merely substitute their current twelfth Gen CPU with a higher-end Core i7 or Core i9 SKU which is able to improve the general efficiency of their PC.

Intel thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs & Z790 Platform Expected Features:

  • Up To 24 Cores & 32 Threads
  • Brand New Raptor Cove CPU Cores (Higher P-Core IPC)
  • Based on 10nm ESF ‘Intel 7’ course of node
  • Up To 6.0 GHz clock speeds (anticipated)
  • Double The E-Cores on sure variants
  • Increased Cache for each P-Cores & E-Cores
  • Supported on current LGA 1700 motherboards
  • New Z790, H770, and B760 motherboards
  • Up To 28 PCIe Lanes (PCH Gen 4 + Gen 3)
  • Up To 28 PCIe Lanes (CPU Gen 5 x16 + Gen 4 x12)
  • Dual-Channel DDR5-5600 Memory Support
  • 20 PCIe Gen 5 Lanes
  • Enhanced Overclocking Features
  • 125W PL1 TDP (Flagship SKUs)
  • AI PCIe M.2 Technology
  • This fall 2022 Launch (October Possibly)
