Windows 11 22H2 will be compatible with all of Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors, as confirmed by Microsoft. Gigabyte shared information on compatible Intel CPUs for their new Z790 motherboards on their website more than a week ago. A listing of twenty-two new processors, all of which will be part of the forthcoming Raptor Lake series, was included in that information.
The Microsoft Windows support website was just updated due to the most current update for the Windows 11 22H2 OS version, which specifies twenty-two Intel CPUs. The company has officially announced the availability of the latest Intel Raptor Lake CPUs.
There are just six 13th-generation Raptor Lake “K” or Unlocked SKUs whose specs have been confirmed by Intel thus far. The rest of the Non-K range will not only be available later, but Intel has yet to validate its specs.
The SKUs specified by Gigabyte and Microsoft for the Intel 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” series incorporates two separate architectures. The company has opted to use the 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake” architecture throughout the midrange to lower-end CPUs, with TDPs ranging from 35 to 65W. Raptor Lake architecture may be found in CPUs ranging from high-end to premium, with TDPs reaching 125W.
The Raptor Lake series’ non-K and T-series CPUs, as well as lower and more cost-effective motherboard options for the B760 and H770 series, are yet to be released by Intel.
