Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPU Spotted Brandishing More E-Cores In Leaked Benchmark

Intel Core i9 Retail Box
By no means thoughts that Alder Lake is simply now starting to get its ft moist within the shopper area, it is by no means too early to take a look at what’s subsequent. And what’s subsequent (barring a shock shift in Intel’s roadmap) is Raptor Lake. Maybe suggesting that every little thing is on observe for a thirteenth Gen Core processor launch subsequent 12 months, a Raptor Lake chip has made an look in an early benchmark leak.
Or very early, we must always say, as a result of it might be round a full 12 months from now earlier than Raptor Lake releases. Regardless of the case is perhaps, an obvious thirteenth Gen chip confirmed up in BAPCo’s database for its cross-platform CrossMark benchmark. The efficiency outcomes are unspectacular (which is not stunning at this early stage), however what’s fascinating is the core configuration.

The chip is labeled merely as “Real Intel 0000” moderately than itemizing an precise mannequin designation. It is also recognized as a Raptor Lake-S desktop CPU with 24 cores and 32 logical processors. Assuming BAPCo’s benchmark is accurately figuring out the make-up of the Raptor Lake engineering pattern (ES), then it seems like Raptor Lake is about to see a rise within the variety of effectivity cores (E-cores) in comparison with Alder Lake.

Alder Lake is obtainable with as much as 16 cores and 24 threads, comprised of eight P-cores (Golden Cove) with Hyper Threading help paired up with eight E-cores (Gracemont) with out Hyper Threading. Therefore we have now 8 (P-cores) + 8 (threads) + 8 (E-cores) = 24 threads in a full Alder Lake config (just like the Core i9-12900K).

Compared, the BAPCo itemizing highlights a Raptor Lake CPU (possibly the eventual Core i9-13900K) with 24 cores and 32 threads, comprised of eight P-cores with Hyper Threading help and 16 E-cores with out Hyper Threading.

The checklist lends credence to a previous rumor suggesting Intel will double the variety of E-cores on Raptor Lake to 16, versus eight on Alder Lake. These are anticipated to be based mostly on enhanced model of Gracemont, whereas the P-cores will get an architectural improve as nicely (Raptor Cove). Different rumored options embrace a bigger bucket of L2 cache, quicker clock speeds, and naturally the standard IPC positive aspects.

Concerning the leaked benchmark information, the entry was eliminated although not earlier than the parents at Tom’s {Hardware} might snap a screenshot, as proven up above. It reveals the Raptor Lake chip scoring 1,591 in CrossMark. It simply so occurs that we ran the identical benchmark with the identical velocity RAM (DDR5-4800) in our Alder Lake overview. This is how the scores align…
  • Core i9-12900K: 2,376
  • Core i5-12600K: 2,129
  • Core i9-11900K: 1,927
  • Ryzen 9 5950X: 1,694
  • **Leaked Raptor Lake**: 1,591

We glean completely nothing about efficiency from the early benchmark run with Raptor Lake, as a result of except one thing is severely flawed, a fully-configured thirteenth Gen Core CPU just isn’t going to get clobbered by its predecessor. The check platform might have been working at lowered clocks for all we all know, plus every little thing else that might clarify this outcome, comparable to this being a prototype platform (motherboard and chipset included) with immature drivers.

Leaked benchmark outcomes will change into extra significant subsequent 12 months as we get nearer to launch. For now, nevertheless, it is fascinating to see an ES Raptor Lake chip seemingly affirm a considerable improve to its core configuration.
