According to the latest industry rumors, processors Intel Raptor Lake This will be the company’s last release to use the LGA1700 socket, and it’s expected that the big leap in performance promised by meteor lake is linked to a much larger socket, the LGA2551which in addition to having dimensions of 38 x 46 mm (+0.5 and + 1mm), will integrate 50% more spindles to power the CPU.

Added to these rumors is that the new high-performance architecture, redwood covewould offer a CPI improvement of up to 21% compared to Raptor Covehoping that the maximum setting can be maintained at 8 high performance cores as well as 16 low power consumption cores, although this is not something that has been confirmed. On the other hand, its launch could take place during the fourth quarter of 2023 to fight against AMD Ryzen processors based on the AMD Zen5 architecture.

There is even talk of his successor, the Intel Arrow Lakewhich will use the same socket but would be able to offer 8 high performance cores + 32 low-power cores as well as the Intel 20A manufacturing process, pending its launch in the second half of 2024 to compete with the AMD Zen6 architecture.
