Intel officially announces its Raptor Lake processors for the notebook segment. In total, there are about 32 models, which are suitable for the upper, middle, and lower price segments.
Intel Core Raptor Lake for notebooks is announced – up to 32 new CPUs.
The 32 new Raptor Lake processor models for notebooks belong to the HK, H, P, U, and N lines, with the Core i9-13980HX being the most powerful of them. It offers notebook users 24 cores and 32 threads with a base TDP of 55W that can go up to 157W.
The Core i9-13980HX deserves its own paragraph as it is currently the most powerful processor in the notebook segment unless AMD says otherwise in the near future. It is a CPU with 24 cores and 32 threads and a maximum clock speed (Max Turbo) of 5.6 GHz. The integrated graphics consists of 32 UE running at a speed of 1.65 GHz, and the memory support is DDR5-5600.
Intel shares some performance tests where they claim that the gaming performance of the i9-13950HX increases by 12% over the i9-12900HX. Rendering tests show the biggest improvement, with up to 79% more performance over the Core i9-12900HK.
While the HX processors are designed for power-hungry notebooks, Intel has also announced H, P, and U CPUs with TDPs of 45, 28, and 15 W, respectively. These CPUs would not have “Raptor Lake” cores but would be “Alder Lake” with higher clock speeds.
Table of Core H, P, and U models Finally, the N CPUs debut in this generation, consisting of 4 models and power consumption of 6 W, 7 W, and 15 W with configurations of 4 cores and 4 threads or 8 cores and 8 threads, in all cases with integrated graphics with 24 or 32 UE. All use the Alder Lake-N core architecture and are aimed at low-end notebooks.
Intel is expected to launch around 200 notebook models with the HX, H, P, U, and N processors in the first quarter of 2023. For more information, visit Intel’s official website.
