Intel’s 13th-gen Raptor Lake CPUs leaks months ahead of official announcement

Intel is still months away from showcasing its upcoming next-gen Raptor Lake CPUs. However, the rumour mill has already started churning, and the entire lineup seems to have leaked much before the official announcement.
The details of 13th-gen Raptor Lake CPUs, from Core i3 to Core i9, have been tipped on the Chinese social media website Bili Bili by a user named Extreme Tech. As per the user’s claim, the Raptor Lake lineup will have a total of 14 SKUs.
Intel Raptor Lake CPUs to have new performance cores
The 13th-gen Intel Raptor Lake CPUs are said to be built on the hybrid core design, consisting of performance P-cores and efficiency E-cores. The team blue is said to retain its existing Gracemont core design for the efficiency cores. Meanwhile, P-cores would be based on a newer Raptor Cove architecture rather than Golden Cove cores seen on the Alder Lake CPUs. However, the two share the same microarchitecture.
14 new Raptor Lake CPUs set for release
Four of the 14 SKUs are Core i7 CPUs, four i5 ones, five Core i5 SKUs and one i3 CPU. The new Raptor Lake CPUs will use the same CPU, GPU and Intel 7 manufacturing process as the Alder Lake.
The newer Raptor Lake Core i9 CPUs will feature 24 cores, having 16 efficiency cores, up from 8 in the Alder Lake and 8 power cores. The same was confirmed by Intel a while ago in its roadmap.
Meanwhile, the next-gen Core i7 CPUs will have 8 efficiency and 8 power cores, a total of 16 cores. The four Core i5 Raptor Lake CPUs would feature 14 cores, 6 E-cores and 8 P-cores, while one would have 6 power cores instead of 8, making it a 12-core CPU. Lastly, the Core i3, a 4-core CPU, would have only 4 efficiency cores without a single power core
The newer Raptor Lake CPUs would offer the same TDP as the Alder Lake, but base clock speeds could be reduced for every CPU other than the Core i3-13100, which could offer a base frequency of 3.4GHz. However, we can expect a little bump in the turbo clock speeds for the rest of the batch so that one can expect a minute increase in the single-core performance.
