Intel CPU Roadmap leaks suggest a Raptor Lake Refresh is heading for Q3 2023

A significant Intel roadmap and PowerPoint deck have been leaked, confirming Raptor Lake, Sapphire Rapids Workstation CPU specs, and platform specifics. The leak is divided into three sections. The first is the roadmap, which includes both desktops and workstations. The second section contains specifications for various desktop and workstation SKUs, while the final section contains the chipset roadmap and platform details.

Intel Core i9-13900KS – The First 6 GHz CPU For Desktops

The flagship Raptor Lake CPU will be the Intel Core i9-13900KS, which will have 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The 13900KS CPU has a ‘Thermal Velocity Boost’ frequency of up to 6 GHz, making it the first chip to do so out of the box. The CPU has a ‘Turbo Boost Max’ frequency of up to 5.8 GHz, while the P-Cores have a regular turbo frequency of up to 5.4 GHz and the E-Cores have a turbo frequency of up to 4.3 GHz.

The CPU will have 68 MB of combined cache and a 150W PL1 rating that may be increased to 253W or even higher using the extreme power profile options. The CPU is estimated to cost roughly $799 USD when it goes on sale in early 2023, but only in limited quantities.

Intel Raptor Lake-S Refresh CPU Family – Hybrid Refresh For Q3 2023

By the second half of 2023, Intel intends to upgrade its Raptor Lake-S CPU family. The CPUs that will continue to use the ‘Intel 7’ manufacturing node will have minor enhancements such as increased speeds and will be compatible with existing LGA 1700/1800 motherboards. All consumer and entry-workstation platforms will be available in 35W, 65W, and 125W SKUs. There are no details on the lineup yet, but this indicates that Meteor Lake CPUs have been delayed until 2024.

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs: Xeon W-2400 & Xeon W-3400

The Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation lineup, as expected, will include Xeon W9, Xeon W7, Xeon W5, and Xeon W3 segments in both Monolithic and MCM variants. There are a total of 17 SKUs in the lineup, with 8 belonging to the Xeon W-2400 family and 9 belonging to the Xeon W-3400 family. TDPs for the Xeon W-3400 platform will be up to 350W, while TDPs for the Xeon W-2400 CPUs will be up to 225W.

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W9 CPU Family

Starting with the Xeon W9 family, we have the Xeon W9-3495X with 56 cores (105 MB L3 Cache), followed by the Xeon W9-3475X with 36 cores (82.5 MB L3 Cache).

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W7 CPU Family

The Xeon W7 family includes five SKUs: the W7-3465X (28 Core), W7-3455 (24 Core), W7-3445 (20 Core), W7-2495X (24 Core), and W7-2475X (20 Core). The Xeon W7 range begins to divide the Sapphire Rapids-SP family into the Xeon W-3000 and Xeon W-2000 lines, which we shall discuss in more detail later.

Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W5 CPU Family

Following that is the Xeon W5 family, which has the most SKUs (8 in total). The Xeon W5-3435X (16 Core), Xeon W5-3433 (16 Core), Xeon W5-3425 (12 Core), Xeon W5-3423 (12 Core), Xeon W5-2465X (16 Core), Xeon W5-2455X (12 Core), Xeon W5-2445 (10 Core), and Xeon W5-2435 (8 Core) SKUs are among them.

Finally, the Xeon W3 lineup is the most entry-level category, with only two Xeon W-2000 SKUs, the Xeon W3-2425 (6 Core) and the Xeon W3-2423 (4 Core) (6 Core). The Xeon W3-2423 is the only SKU in the lineup that will not enable hyper-threading, meaning it will have 6 cores and 6 threads.

Now comes the most crucial part, which is the platform. The Intel Fishhawk Falls platform will use the W790 chipset to power motherboards and will be available in two varieties. The Xeon W3000 CPU series will have an MCM architecture that will support 8-channel DDR5 memory and 112 PCIe Gen 5 lanes, while the Xeon W2000 CPU lineup will have a Monolithic design that will support 4-channel DDR5 memory and 64 PCIe Gen 5 lanes.

Furthermore, the ‘X’ parts will be fully unlocked, confirming that HEDT consumers will have overclocking-ready motherboards to fine-tune their CPUs. A MESH connection will be used throughout the CPU series.
