Intel 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake-S
Intel has confirmed the Raptor Lake series on its official website.
Just last two weeks ago we confirmed Raptor Lake-S which is a codename for the upcoming 13th Gen Core S-Series for desktop processors. Today Intel has revealed the codename on its official repository website.
Intel Raptor Lake-S has been listed alongside Alder Lake-S in compatibility guidance. In fact, the file has a description that says “Provides customers an overview of high-level compatibility guidance between Alder Lake S and Raptor Lake S”, which basically confirms that both series are designed for the same platform, aka LGA1700 socket. Multiple files have been tagged with Raptor Lake, including the latest Q4 2020 roadmap. Unfortunately none of those files are accessible to the public.

A slide that we leaked lists Raptor Lake-S as a 2022 product. The series would provide an upgrade to hybrid technology, a better cache for gaming, and new memory support. Raptor Lake, just as Alder Lake is designed for desktop and mobile platforms.
