Astronomical power consumption for Intel Raptor Lake processors!

Intel 13th generation processors, according to many experts, will actually represent the evolution of Alder Lake processor cores. These will be based on the 10-nanometer technology called “SuperFin”, but they will be much more powerful compared to the existing models, namely by around 20 percent. This will surely please even the most demanding users.

Intel is expected to introduce Raptor Lake processors soon. This is supposed to happen between September 27 and 28 this year, as part of a conference that will take place in the Californian city of San Jose. This is actually going to be a conference that will be largely aimed at developers. Intel is expected to use this event to present its 13th generation processors. Intel Rapor Lake processors are expected to go on sale on October 17 this year. These will initially be available only in selected markets around the world, but by the end of the year at the latest, they are expected to reach other global markets.

Expectations for the new Intel Raptor Lake processors are high. Namely, they will use powerful P-Core (Performance Core) processor cores, which will be based on the Raptor Cove building. In addition to these, of course, energy-saving E-Core (Efficiency Core) processor cores will also be used. The most powerful model is said to be equipped with 24 physical cores (8 P-Core and 16 E-Core) and 32 processor threads. The highest frequency of the newcomers is said to be over six gigahertz. This will be made possible by Digital Linear Voltage Regulator (DLVR) technology.

Of course, the consumption of electricity will also be suitable for this. According to online rumors, the most powerful Raptor Lake-S processor of the Core i9 family should consume up to 350 watts of electrical power at full load. The most powerful processor of the current generation Core i9 of the Alder Lake family consumes “only” 241 watts. Of course, the power supplies will have to be suitable for this. In fact, the consumption could increase even more during operation at times, since the new Core i9-13900K will operate at a frequency of 5.8 gigahertz. It will actually be enabled by the advanced Max Boost Clock technology.

For the new Intel Raptor Lake processors, there will of course also be brand new motherboards equipped with brand new Intel Z790 system sets. These will by default support the fast PCI-E 5.0 M.2 data bus for Solid State drives. Of course, there will also be support for the fast PCI-E 5.0 x16 graphics bus and even better support for DDR5 system memories. Of course, the new Intel Raptor Lake-S processors will also be able to be used in connection with motherboards with Intel 600 family system sets. For this, it will only be necessary to update the hardware BIOS code.

The company Intel is said to initially offer for sale three models of new processors, namely Core i9-13900K, Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600K. Together with them, as already mentioned, motherboards with Intel Z790 system sets will also be available. Cheaper motherboards with the H760 and B760 system sets will not be available to PC rebels until early next year.
