With Intel Raptor Lake set to be released in the coming months, it looks like the entire launch lineup for Team Blue’s next-gen series of processors has been leaked ahead of their announcement.
A user named Extreme player (opens in new tab) on Chinese social media site Bili Bili has published the specifications for a total of 14 SKUs, covering Core i3 to Core i9 processors (first denoted by Wccftech (opens in new tab)).
The top-line numbers show a 24-core i9 processor (eight performance cores and 16 efficiency cores) with 32 threads, doubling the number of efficiency cores than the flagship Alder Lake i9-12900K. The rest of the specs are below as posted on Bili Bili.
Obviously these specs weren’t announced by Intel so they have to be taken with a grain of salt, but the specs are consistent with other rumors we’ve heard.
Analysis: Can Intel rein in some of its power?
One of the things about the big.LITTLE architecture developed by ARM is that it is said to be significantly more power efficient than traditional processor architectures.
This is definitely the case when Apple silicon powers the best MacBooks and Macs as well as the best phones and tablets on the market with these types of processors.
That’s not the case with Intel Alder Lake, however, as it consumes a lot of power compared to other chips released in recent years, which is especially true for its mobile chips.
I’m particularly interested in seeing if Intel can make its chips more performance-conscious with this generation, but given some of the benchmark results we’ve seen lately, I think it’ll likely be full steam ahead.
