The Core i9-13980HX, Intel’s fastest laptop CPU to date with 24 cores, will be revealed at CES 2023 as part of the Raptor Lake-HX series. So far, we have information on five Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake-HX Laptop SKUs that were leaked a long ago.
The lineup was supposed to include up to a Core i9-13900HX with 24 cores, 32 threads, and clock rates of up to 5.4 GHz, but Intel has chosen to develop a ‘Halo’ SKU that will sit a tier above and deliver the highest performance of any laptop CPU on the market.
The Intel Core i9-13980HX is a beast of a CPU with 8 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove architecture and 16 E-Cores based on the Gracemont architecture.
The entire setup features 24 cores and 32 threads, the same as the desktop Core i9-13900K. The CPU features the same 36 MB of L3 cache as the Core i9-12950HX/Core i9-12900HX CPUs and a maximum turbo frequency of up to 5.6 GHz, which is 600 MHz faster than the Core i9-12950HX/Core i9-12900HX CPUs.
In addition to the Raptor Lake-HX range, the normal Intel Raptor Lake-P series will contain the high-end Core i9-13900HK, which will lead the field with 14 cores (6+8 configuration), a total of 24 MB L3 cache, and clock speeds of up to 5.4 GHz. This CPU will also have a 400 MHz frequency increase over its predecessors from the 12th generation, such as the Core i9-12900HK.
Both high-end Intel Core i9 Raptor Lake Laptop lineups will feature flagship designs announced at CES 2023, as well as higher-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics options. We may also anticipate the usage of premium cooling solutions on laptops, as CPUs with these specifications will run hotter and consume more power than conventional chips. The Raptor Lake-HX CPU family from Intel will compete directly with AMD’s Dragon Range Laptop CPU portfolio, which will likewise reuse desktop technology on laptops with up to 16 cores and 32 threads.
