Intel's Alder Lake will be followed up by Raptor Lake, the next step in Intel's journey with hybrid processors. Scheduled for a launch in late 2022, Raptor Lake will be made on the Intel 7 node and will combine Raptor Cove performance cores with Gracemont energy-efficient cores.

A new entry in the BAPCO Crossmark benchmark database confirms rumors about Raptor Lake having more cores. VideoCardz reports the listing, which has already been deleted, revealed a Raptor Lake chip with 8 performance cores and 16 efficient cores. This brings the total number of cores to 24 and the total number of threads to 32.
Despite the rumors that the 13th Gen Core series might support faster JEDEC DDR5 memory specs by default (5600 MT/s), the test platform still features two DIMMs rated at 4800 MT/s. At this point though, the sample is still in a very early testing stage and likely severely limited by frequencies, so relatively low memory speed is not exactly the biggest concern here.
Raptor Lake will continue to use the LGA1700 socket. It's expected to be marketed as the 13th Gen Core.
