At the 2022 investor meeting, Intel demonstrated the workings of a technical sample of the 24-core and 32-thread processor of the upcoming Raptor Lake series. Leading conferences have also confirmed that the successors to the current Alder Lake series can offer double-digit increases in performance.
During the presentation, Intel said that the new generation of processors based on a hybrid architecture can offer up to 8 productive and up to 16 energy-efficient cores. In other words, the 13th Gen Intel Core chips get twice the energy-efficient cores compared to Alder Lake models.

Like the current processor series, the new Raptor Lake will use Intel 7 (formerly 10nm) process technology. For new chips, compatibility with the current LGA 1700 processor socket and motherboards for Alder Lake is declared. In addition, the company promised to equip Raptor Lake with advanced overclocking capabilities.
To demonstrate the working of a technical example of Raptor Lake, the company used Blender and Adobe Premiere software, which shows the utilization of all cores available on the chip.
The launch of 13th Gen Intel Core processors is expected in the second half of 2022. The manufacturer has not yet confirmed the exact date of the announcement.
