This fall, AMD will release the Ryzen 7000 series processors based on the AM5 platform and Zen 4 micro architecture. Of course, this event will not go unnoticed by the “blue” chip maker. Intel Labs is actively working on the 13th generation core processors (Rapter Lake-S) for the LGA1700 platform, with less than six months left until the launch of new products.
According to the latest information, the Intel Rapter Lak-S processor family will be unveiled in October. Among these CPUs, much attention was paid to chipmaker gaming optimizations, and the maximum x86 cores were increased to 24 pieces: 8 high performance and 16 power-efficient. In other words, the flagship Core i9-13900K processor gets a 24-core / 32-thread configuration.
Along with the 13th generation core chips, the LGA1700 motherboard with Intel 700 series logic sets will also be released. However, newer CPUs can be used with previously released boards, requiring their owners to update their UEFI firmware. More information about the new products will be known as the release approaches.
Also, in October, Intel will release a new HEDT platform with Sapphire Rapids processors. Unlike its predecessors, these CPUs will not be promoted under the Core X brand, but will be labeled Xeon W-3400 and W-2400. The maximum x86 cores will be 56 pieces.
