A Chinese tech enthusiast has shared what he claims to be a screenshot from a PC with a Core i9-13900KS under the hood. The Bilibili poster isn’t a source we are familiar with, so please take this information with an unhealthy pinch of salt. However, the PC screenshot is rather special—showing the purported CPU-Z...

At Intel's Innovation event, we snapped a picture of a curious wafer that the company had on display. It was labeled as "Raptor Lake-S," but upon even a cursory examination, it became obvious that it is no ordinary Raptor Lake desktop CPU wafer. Instead, it appears to be a 34-core monster workstation CPU. Looking... Read more...
NZXT is gearing up for Intel's 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs with a new N7 Z790 motherboard that is dressed to the nines. As the model name implies, the latest entry in NZXT's small but growing motherboard lineup is based on Intel's flagship Z790 chipset. And as we've seen from NZXT in past releases, the N7 Z790 comes... Read more...
The Intel Innovation 2022 keynote address officially introduced the company’s 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors, but the conference is still in full swing. Following the address, we were privy to a demonstration of the Core i9-13900K’s productivity prowess running a variety of concurrent workloads. Intel showed... Read more...
You've almost certainly heard the bombshell news that EVGA is leaving the graphics card business entirely over a purported personal dispute with NVIDIA. The company insists that it isn't going anywhere despite graphics cards comprising some 78% of EVGA's revenue, at least for now. Almost as if to prove that point... Read more...
Speaking excitedly at Intel's Innovation event this morning, CEO Pat Gelsinger announced Intel's 13th-generation Core processors, codenamed "Raptor Lake." We've already covered the chips at large, but as a separate part of the announcement, Pat confirmed that Intel will be releasing a 6-GHz version of Raptor Lake... Read more...
At the Innovation 2022 event currently underway in San Jose, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger revealed a number of details regarding the upcoming 13th Gen Core processor line-up, codenamed Raptor Lake. If you’re a regular HotHardware reader, you’ve likely seen a myriad of Raptor Lake-related rumors and leaks over... Read more...
Today is Intel’s big launch day for the new Raptor Lake 13th Gen Core processors, but partners are already on board with refreshed systems. This includes Alienware, who has updated the Aurora platform to take advantage of the latest Intel CPUs as well as support new GeForce RTX 40-Series options. Alongside the Aurora... Read more...
That picture above will probably be familiar to anyone who's purchased a K-series Intel 12th-generation "Alder Lake" CPU—or anyone who reads news about them on this site. That's the box for the current-generation overclockable Intel CPUs. The box for Intel's next-gen CPUs has leaked, though, and you can see it... Read more...
There was a rumor going around that Intel would "strongly encourage" its partners to go DDR5-only for its 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs. That may or may not have been true, but at least one vendor is apparently shipping as many as five motherboards based on Intel's Z790 chipset that will carry on with DDR4 memory... Read more...
Machine learning and AI demand enormous amounts of horsepower, if you're doing it on general-purpose processors, which is why companies like Meta and Alphabet have spent billions developing their own specialized neural network accelerators. Intel wants a piece of the AI-acceleration pie of course as well, and that's... Read more...
Intel sells a variety of processors with myriad letters stuck to the end. You're probably familiar with the K-series overclockable CPUs, but what about the -T SKUs? These chips have lower power limits and clock rates, and typically don't see a lot of leaks because they aren't usually as interesting to enthusiasts... Read more...
On stage during Intel's Technology Tour 2022 in Israel, an executive teased that there will be a 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ processor that is capable of running at 6GHz with stock settings. Moreover, the same SKU has been confirmed by Intel as being successfully overclocked to 8GHz using extreme cooling. Releasing... Read more...
An adventurous overclocker has apparently taken a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K processor and dipped it in liquid nitrogen, en route to achieving a staggering 8GHz clock speed across all eight Performance cores (P-cores). While obviously impractical, it's a noteworthy achievement, given that it's been more than decade... Read more...
Reading that headline, you're probably already thinking: "5.2 GHz? Isn't that a lower speed than previous leaks?" Yes, it absolutely is, but there's a reason for it: the leaker is comparing the CPU directly against Intel's previous-generation Alder Lake Core i9-12900K at that same clock rate. The tests come from a... Read more...
The current expectation in the hardware enthusiast community is that AMD and Intel's next-generation flagship chips are going to be scant percentage points away from each other in the most common benchmarks. That's informed by a number of leaks, including the Geekbench comparison last week as well as this latest leak... Read more...
Most discussions about Intel's Raptor Lake revolve around the top-end processors and their extreme power consumption, particularly under the rumored "Extreme Performance" mode. Given this emphasis, you might reasonably be concerned about the performance we can expect out of a lower-power Raptor Lake processor. The... Read more...
We probably don't have to explain to you, dear reader, that final retail pricing is one of the most important factors in determining the value of a product. As such, it is one of the primary factors we consider when reviewing hardware. We already saw some early price listings for AMD's next-gen hardware, but now we've... Read more...
Intel is of course releasing a full lineup of Raptor Lake processors when those chips hit the market. Anyone could reasonably infer that we'll see CPUs with Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 branding, but the specifications of those models weren't clear until Bilibili hardware dude ExtremePlayer leaked a list of... Read more...
When Intel released its 12th-generation Core processors, reviewers like ourselves made much ado about the Core i9-12900K's high power consumption during productivity workloads. Gaming power was lower, of course, and it was possible to limit the processor's power consumption without having too much impact on... Read more...
If nothing else, the 7-Zip benchmark makes for an interesting test. That's both because it is a practical benchmark (rather than a synthetic test) and also because it exhibits unusual performance behavior. Regular leaker Raichu (@OneRaichu on Twitter) is coming at us again with another pre-release Raptor Lake leak of... Read more...
Leakers are having a heyday right now over impending hardware launches from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel. Intel in particular has had its 13th generation Raptor Lake processors exposed in various benchmarks which highlighted its single-threaded might. This new leak shows the flagship Core i9-13900K trouncing its Core... Read more...
