Here’s how Intel’s first 24-core gaming processor works

Another day passes and more leaks appear, this time twice, and it’s thanks to @Tum_Apisakwe already have results from an Intel raptor lake and an Intel graphics card ARC A770 in UserBenchmark. Raptor Lake is featured as a CPU 24 cores and 32 threads at a frequency of 2.4 GHz base/Turbo 4.6GHzwhile the ARC A770 appears with only 1 GB VRAM memory.

The premiere of Intel’s 13th generation desktop processors is a long-awaited event for all, and while we still don’t have final product benchmarks, we do have information on a possible engineering sample. The score of said CPU was measured in UserBenchmark and, although it does not have the same reliability as the classic Cinebench, it helps us to get an idea. Furthermore, in the same benchmark we find an Intel ARC A770 graphics card, which we will mention later.

Under the “Intel RPL-S ADP-S DDR5 UDIMM CRB” model we would have a Raptor Lake with 24 Cores/32 Threads segmented between 8 hearts High performance (P-Cores) with architecture raptor cove Yes 16 cores energetically efficient Architecture (E-Cores) Gracemont. The surprise comes with boost frequencies of just 4.6GHz (the average of all cores), which is normal for an engineering sample.

However, as we know relatively recently, AMD and its new Ryzen will cross the 5 GHz barrier, positioning themselves in 5.5 GHz or higher and, therefore, Intel leaves much to be desired in this aspect during this first contact. As we don’t know the actual CPI improvement between the two at this time, we can’t conclude on that either. On the other hand, an Intel ARC A770 also appears in the leaks, but with very weak results.

This graphics card appears with only 1 GB of VRAM and a very poor performance expected, worthy of an integrated graphics card from many years ago. Knowing that Intel ARC A770 were supposedly models of “top of the line“, previous leaks showed him lower to one RTX3060 and RTX2060 in Geekbench and Davinci Resolve, respectively. But in this case it only occurs to us that it is a test model for the platform and not the final product. Another possibility is that it is a graphics card integratedbut it wouldn’t make sense for it to be an ARC A770, which are dedicated graphics cards.

Now on to some interesting comparative data, and thanks to one of the users who posted the leak on Twitter, we can see a face to face between your overclocked i5-12600K and the new Raptor Lake. Starting from the performance in the reference index, we have a 127% against 114%, in favor of the 12600K @ 5.05GHzbut it’s not as useful as comparing between kernels.

In this case we have 213 points in Single Core for raptor lake Yes 220 points in Single Core for the i5-12600K OCresulting in a very high score similarly a 4.6 GHz versus 5.05 GHz. Now if we come to punctuation using 8 heartswe have 1539 and 1617, leaving Raptor Lake up for grabs despite having 0.45Ghz less.

The last metric would be 64 server cores, but since both fall short of that number of cores, we left it out of the analysis. Well, here’s what that first benchmark would look like, which, as we’ve said before, lacks the reliability of Cinebenchbut it may help us see what Intel can do to counter the new Ryzen 7000 It looks like they’re going to hit the consumer market hard.
