New leaks confirm that the 13th generation of Intel Core processors, known as raptor lakeit will receive improvements in terms of memory support, i.e. it will have native support for memory DDR5 up to 5600MHzwhich implies a noticeable improvement over the 4800 MHz supported by Alder Lake.

Unlike its rival, the processor family AMD Ryzen 7000it is also confirmed that maintains compatibility with DDR4 memorywhich in this case remains unchanged from Alder Lake, so we are talking about native support for these memory modules with speeds of up to 3200MHz. Something really important considering the high cost of DDR5 RAM today and in the short term.

Intel Raptor Lake-S LGA1700 Platform

Additionally, the leaked slide focused on the Intel platform Raptor Lake-S (Tabletop Raptor Lake), also reveals access to more PCI-Express 4.0 lanes via the chipset, and things as we already knew are mentioned: the increase in the number of nuclei (up to 24: 8x P-Core + 16x E-Core), increased L2 and L3 cache memory, improved cores, improved memory overclocking, while being backwards compatible with current motherboards with LGA1700 socket.

Intel’s new Raptor Lake processor family is rumored to be announced as soon as in Octoberso as the date draws closer, it’s inevitable that leaks will give us all the details.
