During his opening speech at CES 2022, Gregory Bryant, executive vice president of Intel, made a statement that went unnoticed by many media outlets. According to him, samples of processors of the Raptor Lake generation are already working in the company’s laboratories, which enable the loading of the operating system. The series models in this family will be announced before the end of 2022.
“With the advent of our next generation processors, Birds of prey Lake, who are preparing for the announcement according to the planned schedule and are already downloading Windows, you can expect more advances in performance and choice later in 2022. – noted Gregory Bryant during the broadcast of his speech, which coincides with the start of CES 2022. He didn’t say whether it was the mobile or desktop version of Raptor Lake, but did mention it during the presentation of the company’s new mobile platforms.
Remember that the Raptor Lake processor family, which has already been inherited in the form of engineering examples in separate databases, is expected that the productive cores of the P-series will move to a more advanced architecture in the number of energy-efficient cores of the E series while retaining the Gracemont architecture. Processors with 8 cores of the P series and 16 cores of the E series are mainly offered in the desktop segment. Compatibility with the LGA 1700 socket is retained, but it is still too early to include support for Raptor Lake processors to speak on existing motherboards. At least they definitely need a microcode update for that.
