Intel today announced 16 new Raptor Lake processors spanning its 65W mainstream PC chips and 35W “T-Series” categories, expanding its list of 13th-gen processors that currently dominate our list of best processors for laptops. games and our benchmark CPU hierarchy. The new chips span from Core i3 families to high-end Core i9 families and come with more cores and higher frequencies as well as higher generation-on-gen pricing, reflecting the price increases we noticed yesterday. evening with 12th generation Intel chips. They also have a significantly increased maximum power consumption compared to their predecessors.

In many ways, Raptor Lake is an iteration of the microarchitectures found in previous generation Alder Lake chips, but with extensive enhancements that yield impressive performance gains. Even though Intel still uses the “Intel 7” process node, it takes advantage of advances in a new silicon revision to increase clock speeds while improving power efficiency. Intel is also burning the cores to a new larger die with more cores and L3 cache and exposing the previously unused L2 cache. These improvements gave Raptor Lake a tangible performance edge over AMD’s competing Ryzen 7000 chips.
