It seems that the Intel Core i9-13900Kthe high-end processor of the Raptor Lake family, will be very fast, and this is according to the latest rumors published by the well-known leaker ‘Raichu‘, it is expected that the nuclei raptor cove (P-Core) can be up to 300 MHz faster respect to Core i9-12900KS (Golden Cove), and this implies a maximum Turbo frequency of 5.80GHzwhile in the worst case an improvement of 200 MHz is estimated, which would place it in the 5.70GHzwhich isn’t bad either.
Of course, think of an energy consumption which could be of the order of 300W compared to the current 260W of the Core i9-12900KS, while AMD would jump to 170W in its bid to hit the 5.00 GHz barrier.
Interestingly, this noticeable improvement in core speeds will not only be seen in high-performance processors, as Ian Curess already revealed in February, via his official Twitter account, that next-gen Intel Atom cores would be able to exceed 4.50 GHz.
According to the latest rumors, Raptor Lake will be able to feature up to 40% improvement in multi-core performanceand it is that even if the cores of low power consumption will be maintained Gracemont (E-Core), the number of them will be doubled from 8 to 16 to help with this effect.
If we talk about single-core performanceit is stated that the improvement of high-performance cores (P-Core) will be up to 15 percentso this seems like a good enough performance improvement considering that the real expected version is the Intel Meteor Lake next year.
