Intel Raptor Lake Refresh Likely Continues 13th Gen Naming

Documents has confirmed that the upcoming 14th Gen is strictly for ‘Meteor Lake’ CPUs.

In the document from Intel’s oneVPL (Video Processing Library) API, the chart has mentioned various generations of Intel CPUs, including the upcoming 14th Gen Core processors. However, with the rumors that Team Blue is releasing refreshed versions of Raptor Lake (officially named Raptor Lake Refresh), such names are not mentioned in the 14th Gen CPUs, which should imply that the upcoming products will continue with the ’13xxx’ naming.

This is not new, of course: certain Intel products has received minor refreshes in the past, however it’s usually on the low-end SKUs. One such example is Core i3-10105 – which replaces the original Core i3-10100 CPU. Given the scale of the refresh, it’s possible that Intel may give bigger numbers in the model names, such as Core i9-13950K (should it replaces the existing Core i9-13900K).

The leaked roadmap so far has pointed to a desktop-exclusive release, so laptops will continue using existing chips as-is. On the motherboard side of things, the 600 and 700 series chipsets should be able to see one more ‘generation’ (being a refresh) of products before it’s superseded by the upcoming LGA1851 (800 series) platforms. Do expect the Raptor Lake Refresh CPUs to arrive within Q3 this year.

Pokdepinion: In Intel terms, having 3 full years for socket support on a motherboard is quite decent. They haven’t really been great when it comes to platform lifecycle compared to Socket AM4 especially.
