The introduction of Intel Raptor Lake-S happened only a few days ago, and how could it be otherwise we have already told you its most important keysboth in terms of performance and the innovations this generation brings in terms of architecture.
Broadly speaking, we are facing a generation that maintains the base we saw at Alder Lake-Sthat is, it has a block of high-performance cores and more of the high-performance cores, but at the same time it brings important changes that, as a whole, represent a remarkable development.
Undoubtedly, one of the most important advances is found in their performance. Intel Raptor Lake-S processors improve single wire performance by 15%thanks to the use of the new Raptor Cove architecture, and multi-threaded performance by 41%. This latest jump in multi-threaded performance is made possible by cumulative improvements in single-threaded performance and an increase in the total number of high-efficiency cores, which has been doubled across all “K” and “KF” models.
The LGA1700 platform with the 700 series chipset will be the great champion of this new generation of processors and it will maintain compatibility with DDR4 and DDR5 memories. We know that the Intel Raptor Lake-S processors will have native support for 5,600 MHz DDR5 memory, but thanks to the Intel XMP 3.0 profiles, they will be able to reach much higher frequencies. At first, speeds were rumored to be around 6 GHz, but thanks to a new leak, we were able to see that DDR5 memory support will reach impressive 7,600 MHz
This information is official, that is, it is not just a rumor or speculation, because it was extracted from the profile data associated with G.SKILL DDR5 memory for ASUS Z790 ROG Maximus Hero motherboard. As we can see in the attached image, its XMP 3.0 profiles start at 7,200 MHz and peak at 7,600 MHz.
The list also lists the different supported processors, Core i7-13700K and Core i9-13900K. only these last they could work with 7466 MHz and 7600 MHz configurations, at least according to those listings. With respect to latencies we can see that they are very tightand it is the case that 7600MHz DDR5 kits would stay at CL36, which is a very good figure considering that 6000MHz kits hover around CL30 and CL36 latencies.
This is confirmed by the Intel Raptor Lake-S processors will support faster memory sets than the Ryzen 7000because they reach their optimum point at 6,000 MHz. However, it is important to keep in mind that we currently only find DDR5 kits with a maximum frequency of 6,600 MHz on the market, and that we do not know the exact release date of those kits at 7,200 MHz, 7,466 and 7,600 MHz. The price has also not been revealed, but it is clear that it will be high.
Second, Intel also confirmed improvements to Thread Director. Raptor Lake-S. This system is responsible for intelligent load distribution depending on the situation and, as we can see in the attached video, it fine-tunes the distribution between P cores (high performance) and E cores (high efficiency) depending on the tasks that are in the foreground or background.
