A serious Intel roadmap and slide deck have leaked out which confirms Raptor Lake, Sapphire Rapids Workstation CPU specs & platform particulars.
Intel Desktop & Workstation Roadmap Leaks Out: Raptor Lake Refresh In Q3 2023, Sapphire Rapids Workstation In 1H 2023
The leak covers three elements, first is the roadmap which incorporates each desktops and workstations. The second half is the specs for varied desktop and workstation SKUs and eventually, we have got the chipset roadmap and platform particulars. Let’s begin with the primary chip that’s Intel’s 2023 desktop journey, the Core i9-13900KS.
Intel Core i9-13900KS – The First 6GHz CPU For Desktops
TheIntel Core i9-13900KS would be the flagship Raptor Lake CPU, that includes 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The 13900KS CPU encompasses a ‘Thermal Velocity Increase’ frequency of as much as 6 GHz, making it the primary chip to hit that frequency out of the field. The CPU encompasses a ‘Turbo Increase Max’ frequency of as much as 5.8 GHz whereas the P-Cores run at a regular turbo frequency of as much as 5.4 GHz whereas the E-Cores run at as much as 4.3 GHz.
- Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) – 3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66MB Cache, 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2)+
- Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 / 5.5 GHz – 30 MB Cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)
The CPU might be that includes 68 MB of mixed cache and a 150W PL1 score that goes as much as 253W & even past that utilizing the acute energy profile modes. The CPU is anticipated to price round 799 USD when it hits retail in early 2023 however might be out there in restricted portions.
Intel Raptor Lake-S Refresh CPU Household – Hybrid Refresh For Q3 2023
So Intel is planning to refresh its Raptor Lake-S CPU lineup by the second half of 2023. The CPUs which is able to nonetheless use the ‘Intel 7’ course of node will include little optimizations akin to quicker clocks and such and might be suitable with the prevailing LGA 1700/1800 motherboards . The lineup might be together with all client and entry-workstation platforms with 35W, 65W, and 125W SKUs. There aren’t any particulars on the lineup but however this kind of confirms that Meteor Lake CPUs have now been pushed to 2024.

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W7 CPU Household
The Xeon W7 household options 5 SKUs which embody the Xeon W7-3465X (28 Core), W7-3455 (24 Core), W7-3445 (20 Core), W7-2495X (24 Core), and the W7-2475X (20 Core) variants. The Xeon W7 lineup begins to separate the Sapphire Rapids-SP household into the Xeon W-3000 and Xeon W-2000 traces which we are going to get to in a bit.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W5 CPU Household
Subsequent up, we’ve got the Xeon W5 household which incorporates essentially the most SKUs, totaling 8. These embody the Xeon W5-3435X (16 Core), Xeon W5-3433 (16 Core), Xeon W5-3425 (12 Core), Xeon W5 -3423 (12 Core), Xeon W5-2465X (16 Core), Xeon W5-2455X (12 Core), Xeon W5-2445 (10 Core) and the Xeon W5-2435 (8 Core) SKUs.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W3 CPU Household
Lastly, we’ve got the Xeon W3 lineup which is essentially the most entry-level section with simply two Xeon W-2000 SKUs, the Xeon W3-2425 (6 Core) and the Xeon W3-2423 (6 Core). The Xeon W3-2423 is the one SKU within the lineup that will not function hyper-threading help in order that’s 6 cores and 6 threads.
