Intel’s Refresh of Raptor Lake: the final attempt to sell LGA1700 CPUs

Intel’s upcoming desktop lineup gets first rumored specs

The most important changes for Raptor Lake Refresh are higher core count for entry to mid-range segment, higher clock speeds and support for faster DDR5 memory (potentially 6400 MT/s). As we get closer to the launch, which is now expected in October, the usual suspects are starting to share first leaks and rumors on the next Intel platform.

Intel Raptor Lake Refresh is not a new ‘generation’ but rather an updated series with features mentioned above. It may be challenging for Intel to convince gamers to upgrade from 13th Gen Core series, but users currently on 12th Gen series, might be easier convinced.

Special interest was put into the Core i7 series, which is now set to offer 20 cores and 28 threads. Similar configuration of 8 Performance and 12 Efficient cores was used by mobile Core i7-13850HX processor, but it has not been used by desktop before. The full specs of Raptor Lake Refresh were put together by RedGamingTech in the latest video:

Those looking at sub $300 SKUs, namely the Core i5 series, should also be pleased to know that Intel is expected to put 16 cores and 24 threads for this segment. Such a configuration was used by first generation LGA1700 CPUs from the Core i9 tier. However, this makes a lot of sense given that the Core i9-12900K series are approaching $300 pricing.

Intel will not be adding more cores to its Core i9 lineup, but higher clocks are to be expected. The rumors suggest 6.0 GHz max boost for 14900K and 6.2 GHz for potential highly binned 14900KS variant, as hinted by Moore’s Law is Dead.

Support for DLVR is not confirmed yet, but ASUS did mention that it may be enabled on future CPUs. This power delivery technology has a potential to improve power efficiency by 20%, which could lead to either lower temperatures or higher clocks, something that Intel may need for the Refresh.
