Last week, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger talked about the future Meteor Lake-S processor, which would be the first Intel processor to feature a 7nm compute tile. Meteor Lake-S is expected in the 2013 timeframe -- so still some time to go until we see these parts in the wild.

First official mentioning of Raptor Lake-S

Later this week we'll see the official availability of the Intel Rocket Lake-S processors, the final 14nm chips, and towards the end of this year, we can expect the 10nm Alder Lake-S architecture. There were rumors about an Alder Lake Refresh and these are now a lot more concrete as Intel has officially mentioned Raptor Lake-S on its repository website.

VideoCardz speculates Raptor Lake-S may see the light of day as the 13th Gen Core generation. Just like Alder Lake-S, the Raptor Lake-S processors will use the new LGA1700 socket.

According to the rumor mill, Raptor Lake-S is slated for a 2022 release. A recently leaked slide claims Raptor Lake will offer hybrid CPU core changes for enhanced performance and CPU cache enhancements for better gaming performance. Raptor Lake will see a mobile and a desktop release.

Next, overclockers are having fun with the new Rocket Lake-S parts. VideoCardz reports the current record for the soon-to-be-out Core i9-11900K flagship processor now stands at 7048MHz. This was achieved by Rog-Fisher, who used liquid nitrogen cooling and a CPU voltage of 1.873V. The overclock was performed on the ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Apex motherboard.
