According to the latest industry rumors regarding the Intel Raptor Lake (Intel Core 13th Gen), these processors would reach outperform multicore to AMD Ryzen 7000 processors. Information sourced from @Greymon55a very reliable source in the world of processors.
As revealed, Intel Multi-Core Performance will manage to outperform the new AMD Zen4 architecture. He obviously mentions that this condition occurs on an equal footing, implying that early Intel and AMD processors are engineering samples at this time and this does not represent the final performance that will come to market, and that final performance will be determined by the frequencies and final TDP you wish to manage.
This also indirectly asserts that the AMD Ryzen 7000 could offer higher single-core performance, which would make sense, since the Raptor Cove is nothing more than an update to the Golden Cove while AMD Zen4 is a new architecture, although of course Intel can still retain its role as generate higher energy consumption in exchange for a performance boost to narrow or widen any performance gap.
Although unable to provide precise data, at least it indicates that in laptops Intel Raptor Lake processors would offer around 8-10% single core performance improvement. It is therefore to be expected that in desktop computers this is the minimum that we can see.
“Anyway, the competition has brought a lot of benefits to consumers. 13th Gen is really strong, and it wouldn’t be surprising if it surpasses AMD Zen4 in every aspect. Zen5 and Zen6 have to do something in response to competition,” he said. Greymon55.
Intel Raptor Lake would be faster, but also… Cheaper?
How does it make sense that not everything translates into performance and power consumption, and is that price can be crucial for a user to resort to one or the other platform, and obviously the great disadvantage that the AMD Ryzen 7000s will have is that they will depend solely and exclusively on DDR5 memorywhile Intel users will be able to resort to high performance DDR4 memory at much more affordable prices which will make it cheaper to switch to a new platform i.e. if they don’t want to reuse the memory DDR4 they currently use, which already means a few hundred dollars in savings compared to skipping a decent DDR5 memory.
Because of this, AMD would have to be very price competitive with its CPUs and motherboards if it wants to try. reduce the cost gap between the two platforms.
