Intel 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh Claimed To Clock As High As 6.5GHz

65% of the way there to the magical 10GHz mark – if you’ve learned about NetBurst before.

Intel 14th Gen Raptor Lake Refresh Claimed To Clock As High As 6.5GHz

Leaker Moore’s Law is Dead has brought new details on the upcoming Intel 14th Gen (codename Raptor Lake Refresh) chips – which he expects a Q3 2023 launch and supports existing LGA1700 platforms. The updated lineup should maintain the same core counts with the flagship feature a 8P+16E configuration, though it is noted that 6P+8E and even 2P+8E configuration exists.

Since this will be a small refresh, Intel is focusing on clockspeed boosts rather than architectural updates. So far, the flagship chip is said to clock up to 6.2GHz – 200MHz higher than the current Core i9-13900KS, with possibility that an even more aggressively-binned chip to hit as high as 6.5GHz.

Earlier rumors has pointed to a slightly updated cache design, small multicore performance improvements and even utilizing the new DLVR (Digital Voltage Regulator) technology – but there’s no confirmation from Team Blue so far. Intel is hosting its Vision event tomorrow – and as we’re merely months away from Q3, the company may first reveal preliminary details on the new chip. On that note, it’s possible that these chips may get a new name altogether.

Pokdepinion: I’m going to say that is unlikely to push power draw since that concerns multicore clockspeeds, but boy that clockspeed sure looks face-melting.
