A new Intel Raptor Lake video test video has been released. The CPU can be overclocked to reach 6Ghz across all Raptor Cove cores. There’s already reason to believe the chip will pack more of a punch than Alder Lake, but the performance sneak peek suggests it could raise the gaming PC performance bar even higher.
The Intel Raptor Lake Twitter user benchmark clip was shared by Esperonslaie Videocardz published an article about next-generation gaming CPU performance. The processor featured in the video appears to be an i7-13700K – a processor equipped with eight performance cores and eight efficient cores, with 5.3GHz and 3.4GHz boost clocks respectively.
According to the clip’s on-screen CPU-Z figures, the Intel Raptor Lake i7-13700K can reach 5,999Mhz across all cores, achieving 983.3 points in single-core tests and 7814.7 in multi-core. The chip could be the fastest available processor, but its clock speeds are gaining speed and becoming closer to the fastest CPU worldwide record, held by Core i9-12900KS at 7.45Ghz, despite using a ridiculous cooling method.
Intel Raptor Lake is expected to arrive this October, the 13th gen chip’s future already looks bright. Core i9 sample tests suggest it’ll be the fastest single-core CPU, meaning it should successfully succeed Alder Lake.
That said, Intel is already planning ahead, as Meteor Lake is expected to arrive in 2023 to help tackle AMD Zen 4 CPUs. The 14th gen chips will use Redwood Cove and Crestmont architectures, and they’ll also feature a new quad-die design that lets the company swap out configurations to create new variants.
