Intel Core i9-13900K “Raptor Lake-S” Desktop CPU to Feature with 24 Cores, 125W TDP

According to Jim from AdoredTV, the upcoming 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K “Raptor Lake-S” desktop CPUs will feature with 24 cores (8 big cores + 16 small cores), and TDP is 125W.

Intel Raptor Lake-S is to feature the same hybrid architecture as Alder Lake, which is based on high-performance Golden Cove cores and high-efficiency Gracemont cores.

And the upcoming Intel Core i7-13700K is feature with 16 core (8 big cores + 8 small cores), the upcoming Intel Core i5-11600K is feature with 14 cores (6 big cores + 8 small cores).

Intel Raptor Lake-S is to have power and performance improvements, as well as increased IPC and frequencies. The CPUs based on this architecture will also have a larger L2 Cache. Adored claims that Intel is now expected to increase the frequency by around 200 MHz with turbo frequencies reaching up to 5.5 GHz (Alder Lake-S unlocked SKUs are up to 5.3 GHz).

The successor to Alder Lake is also to see improved DDR5 memory support up to 5600 MT/s (6500 MT/s for LPDDR5 mobile memory). This is obviously referring to default memory support, which is 4800 MT/s for Alder Lake.
