AMD will launch a 5nm Zen4-based Ryzen 7000 processor this fall, and Intel will upgrade its Core 13, code-named Raptor Lake, which will be an improved version of core 12. The architecture will be upgraded from 8 performance cores +8 performance cores to 8 performance cores +16 performance cores, with a total of 24 cores and 32 threads.
In other respects,The core 13 will also have improved overclocking capabilities. The LGA1700 slot and motherboard will be compatible with the Core 12, as well as DDR5 and DDR4 memory.
In addition to these improvements,The 13th Generation Core has now been revealed to have an extra module. — Intel will add an AI M.2 module to it, presumably to further improve the AI acceleration capability of the 13th Generation Core.
Given that Intel has been improving AI since the 10th generation of Core, it is not a problem that core 13 will continue to strengthen AI. However, the addition of m. 2 module is a bit confusing. Before, AI units were integrated inside the CPU, how to become m. 2 module now? Will consumers pay for the AI module if the external module is really made?
The AI module of the 13th generation Core is really confusing, but there is not much information at present, the specific results of Intel's work are yet to be analyzed.
In addition, the 13 generation Core's performance advantage may be further strengthened, the latest Revelations show that the 13 generation Core flagship i9-13900K GeekBench 5 single-core score can exceed 2300 points.
At present, i9-12900K is basically around 2000 points, AMD 9 5950X is around 1700 points.
This means that the single-core performance of the i9-13900K can be improved by as much as 15%, compared to the rival flagship by as much as 35%.
