By the end of this year, Raptor Lake mobile CPUs will be released, according to Intel. The statement made it obvious that the new CPUs should be accessible now, so we’re not discussing a paper launch.
Intel appears to be planning at least four new mobile CPUs for this launch, two of which were previously unknown. According to prior reports, Intel is producing Core i9-13900HK and i7-13700H laptop parts. Both of them are believed to be high-end gaming SKUs, with 14 cores and 20 threads. According to sources, these CPUs will outperform the 12th Gen Core series in terms of clock rates, reaching as higher as 5.4 GHz.
Additionally, according to @momomo, Intel is also introducing 13 20H SKUs that are either lower-TDP components or rebrands of current SKUs. Although the Intel Core i7-13620H and i5-13420H are specified, a simple search for those model numbers turns up nothing; hence the exact specifications of those processors are unknown.
The 13th Generation Core series, codenamed “Raptor Lake mobile,” is expected to be released before CES 2023. It is typical to see new laptop CPU and GPU series here, and this year won’t be any different. Intel 13th Gen CPUs will certainly be combined with NVIDIA RTX 40 Mobile GPUs and Intel’s own Arc A-Series.
In addition, the company hinted that they would introduce a new desktop-class HX series later. There is no proof that this is the new Raptor Lake chip, which has 8 Performance and 16 Efficient cores. These series are expected to be released later, maybe a year after the 12th Gen HX series debuted in May.
