Intel’s Thirteenth-generation Raptor Lake chips could also be able to boosting previous the 6GHz mark if one tipster is to be believed. The firm’s present Core i9-12900 CPUs are already able to maxing out nicely over 5GHz.
The rumor comes courtesy of tipster @OneRaichu on Twitter, who claims at the least one SKU of the CPU might be able to a 6GHz turbo increase resulting from Intel’s Efficient Thermal Velocity Boost (ETVB) know-how. That would make it the primary x86 chip to succeed in that degree of efficiency.
🥵6 GHz turbo MAYBE will seem in a single SKU. (in ETVB mode)🤣
I assume it shouldn’t be regular sku. https://t.co/SFubzjdXNG

More affirmation of ETVB was revealed when Intel up to date its Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) overclocking utility to incorporate “future platform” help for ETVB. As Wccftech notes, the overclocking options listed within the XTU changelog might be out there to Twelfth-gen Alder Lake CPUs as nicely.
As a refresher, Intel’s common TVB “opportunistically” will increase the clock speeds by as much as 100MHz if the CPU is inside its thermal restrict and sufficient turbo headroom is on the market. This is how Alder Lake CPUs are in a position to get into the mid-5GHz vary. The ETVB mode will doubtless be an enchancment upon the TVB to maybe permit even larger frequency boosts relying on how sizzling the CPU is.
This most likely isn’t stunning contemplating a few of the early benchmarks we’ve seen for Raptor Lake. In the Sandra benchmarking instrument, it was discovered that the Core i9-13900 crushed the present Core i9-12900. However, we should warning that it was an early engineering pattern that was examined so the precise efficiency numbers may differ upon launch.
Obviously, AMD isn’t sitting on its laurels, with Team Red readying its personal Ryzen 7000 chips constructed on the brand new Zen 4 structure. AMD confirmed off spectacular outcomes at Computex 2022, beating Intel’s Core i9-12900K by 31%. It additionally confirmed the Zen 4 chip boosting as much as 5.5GHz whereas taking part in Ghostwire Tokyo.
AMD CEO Lisa Su famous that even with such spectacular outcomes, Ryzen 7000 chips might be able to of clock speeds “considerably” above 5Ghz. That’s not even counting any type of overclocking potential. That mentioned, if Intel is ready to obtain 6Ghz with out overclocking, that can nonetheless signify a outstanding achievement.
