Intel video exhibits upcoming Raptor Lake CPU hitting 6GHz out of the field
What simply occurred? Intel supplied a demo of the Raptor Lake CPU, which it confirmed again in September, can hit 6GHz straight out of the field. The firm says it nonetheless cannot reveal the official title of the processor, however we’re fairly certain it is going to be the Core i9-13900KS.
Jason Xie, head of gaming expertise advertising and marketing at Intel, confirmed off the chip, which may hit 6GHz speeds with out overclocking, in an interview with tech evangelist Alejandro Hoyos. He demonstrated his credentials utilizing a normal off-the-shelf Corsair all-in-one cooler and an Intel RVP (Reference Validation Platform) motherboard.
Xie used the 7-Zip benchmark working within the background together with Intel XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility) and HWiNFO to point out that no tips have been used to achieve 6GHz. The chip did handle to hit that clock pace on just a few threads, however could not maintain it. When Hoyos requested why this was the case, Xie stated staying at 6GHz is determined by the atmosphere, with elements like energy finances, thermals, software program, and Windows not assigning to the right cores.
Xie additionally demonstrated that the CPU delivers the identical efficiency when plugged right into a business client motherboard (on this case, an ASUS Z790 motherboard) and the identical Corsair cooler.
The Intel Core i9-13900KS seems briefly within the video, displaying the Intel Core i9-13900K overclocked to a record-setting 9GHz; the previous is a sped-up model of the latter. The KS mannequin exhibits a most TDP of 150W, though that is solely the bottom processor energy (PL1), so the utmost turbo energy (MTP/PL2) will probably be a lot increased. In comparability, the Core i9-13900K has a base TDP of 125W and a most TDP of 253W.
The worth and launch date for the Intel Core i9-13900KS are nonetheless unknown, however rumors counsel the processor might arrive anytime quickly. As for the way a lot it’ll price, the usual Ok mannequin is $589, so an optimist would possibly say $600, however a realist would possibly say nearer to $700.
