The Intel Raptor Lake will offer up to 68MB of L2/L3 cache

One of the latest leaks around future processors Intel Raptor Lake (13th Gen Intel Core) details of great relevance, such as continuing to claim that we will have processors with up to 24 cores: 8x Raptor Cove (High Yield) + 16x Gracemont (Low consumption).

These details are now fleshed out with cache, knowing that each high-performance core has 2 MB L2 cache (vs 1.25 MB on Alder Lake) while each low-power core cluster (4 cores per cluster) it has 4 MB (vs 2 MB), giving a total of 32 MB L2 cache, which added to the 36 MB L3 cache, gives us a total of 68 MB, 24MB more than Intel Alder Lake processors (Intel Core 12th Gen), while all this would imply a reduction in latencies.

Intel Raptor Lake

It should be remembered that one of the main novelties of the Intel Raptor Lake compared to its predecessor is increase in nuclei. Basically, from the Intel Core i9-12900K to the Intel Core i9-13900K we will go from 16 cores and 24 threads to a much more generous configuration of 24 cores with 32 processing threads.

This configuration will be divided into 8 new high performance cores (P-Core), which will be based on the architecture raptor covewhich in this case will be accompanied by 16 Gracemont low power consumption cores (E-Core), the number of these cores is therefore doubled to continue to significantly improve multi-core performance.

These cores will be seasoned with an iGPU based on the Intel Xe architecture with 32 execution units (256 cores) and all this with a linear digital voltage regulator (Digital Linear Voltage Regulator) it promises reduce energy consumption by up to 25% providing performance improvements of up to 7%.
