YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead presents quite a number of Intel Raptor Lake and Alder Lake rumors. He claims Intel is currently planning to launch Alder Lake on October 25th. There will be a desktop version and one of the new things will be a HX series for laptops, this will be a high-performance mobile processor that combine desktop-class PCH and CPU dies on to BGA sockets. The Alder Lake HX lineup is expected in Q2 2022 with TDPs ranging from 45W to 65W.
Raptor Lake to get 24 cores in maximum configuration?
Intel is dedicated to the big.LITTLE hybrid approach. Alder Lake will be the first series to feature a combination of high-performance and energy-efficient cores, and this strategy will continue with Raptor Lake. The latter is the successor to Alder Lake, it's expected in 2022 and will use the LGA1700 socket. It's claimed that Raptor Lake will get double the number of Gracemont cores in its maximum configuration. So we're looking at up to eight high-performance "Raptor Cove" cores and up to sixteen energy-efficient cores. The idea here is to enhance multi-threading performance.
The series allegedly feature cores codenamed Raptor Cove which would replace Golden Cove from Alder Lake. The CPUs would still feature high-efficiency Gracemont cores, however, Intel would be doubling the number of these cores in the upcoming CPUs (aka 13th Gen Core series). In other words, the Intel Raptor Lake series would have 8 more Gracemont cores than Alder Lake. The updated Raptor Cove microarchitecture would also bring IPC, Core Frequency, and Performance/Watt, YouTuber notes.
Raptor Lake is expected towards the end of 2022.
