Intel Raptor Lake voltage regular to offer 7% more performance

Intel's Alder Lake will be succeeded by Raptor Lake in 2022. VideoCardz came across some details about the new Digital Linear Voltage Regulator (DLVR) that will allegedly be part of Raptor Lake. The idea here is that the inclusion of an on-CPU voltage regulator, in parallel with the primary regulator on the motherboard, can reduce power consumption. It's said to be a relatively cheap solution with a low complexity of tuning.

According to the site, the DLVR can drop CPU power consumption by 20 to 25 percent. A 21 percent voltage drop on the CPU is also quoted as translating to approximately 7 percent performance gain.
With all this in mind, it appears that Intel 13th Gen Core series codenamed Raptor Lake (launching for both desktop and mobile devices) will not only increase the core count (16 Atom cores) but also provide improvements to CPU cache, LPDDR5X memory support, and performance and power efficiency gains due to new Digital Linear Voltage Regulator. Some of the features may require an upgrade to Intel 700 series motherboards though.
