A major Intel roadmap and slideshow has been leaked confirming Raptor Lake and Sapphire Rapids Workstation CPU specs and platform details.
Intel desktop and workstation roadmap leaks: Raptor Lake update in Q3 2023, Sapphire Rapids workstation in first half of 2023
The leak covers three parts, first is the roadmap which includes desktops and workstations. The second part is the specs for various desktop and workstation SKUs, and finally, we have the chipset roadmap and platform details. Let’s start with the first chip that will mark Intel’s journey to the desktop in 2023, the Core i9-13900KS.
Intel Core i9-13900KS – The world’s first 6GHz CPU for desktop computers
The flagship Raptor Lake CPU will be the Intel Core i9-13900KS, which has 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration. The 13900KS CPU has a “thermal speed boost” frequency of up to 6GHz, making it the first chip to reach that frequency out of the box. The CPU features a “Turbo Boost Max” frequency of up to 5.8GHz while the P-Cores operate at a standard turbo frequency of up to 5.4GHz and the e-cores operate at up to 4.3GHz.
- Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) – 3.2 / 6.0 GHz – 66 MB cache, 150W (PL1) / 253W (PL2) +
- Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) – 3.4 / 5.5 GHz – 30MB cache, 125W (PL1) / 241W (PL2)
The CPU will have 68MB of onboard cache and a PL1 rating of 150W rated power up to 253W and more using Max Power profile modes. The CPU is expected to cost around $799 when it hits retail in early 2023 but will be available in limited quantities.
Intel Raptor Lake-S Refresh CPU Family – Hybrid Refresh Q3 2023
Intel also plans to update its Raptor Lake-S CPU lineup by the second half of 2023. The CPUs that will still use the ‘Intel 7’ process node will come with little improvements like faster clocks etc and will be compatible with LGA 1700/1800 motherboards. existing. The range will include all consumer and entry-level workstation platforms with 35W, 65W and 125W SKUs. No details on the lineup yet, but this more or less confirms that Meteor Lake CPUs have now been pushed to 2024.

Intel Desktop & Workstation PCH Family Roadmap (Image credits: Harukaze5719):
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs: Xeon W-2400 & Xeon W-3400
As expected, the lineup of Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstations will range from the Xeon W9, Xeon W7, Xeon W5, and Xeon W3 segments and will come in Monolithic and MCM flavors. The suite includes a total of 17 SKUs, 8 of which are part of the Xeon W-2400 and 9 are part of the Xeon W-3400 family.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W9 CPU family
Starting with the Xeon W9 family, we have the top Sapphire Rapids-WS chip, the Xeon W9-3495X with 56 cores (105MB L3 Cache) followed by the Xeon W9-3475X with 36 cores (82.5MB L3 cache).
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W7 CPU family
The Xeon W7 family has five SKUs including the basic Xeon W7-3465X (28 Core), W7-3455 (24 cores), W7-3445 (20 cores), W7-2495X (24 cores), and W7-2475X (20 cores). ) variables. The Xeon W7 line begins to split the Sapphire Rapids-SP family into the Xeon W-3000 and Xeon W-2000 lines, which we’ll get to in a moment.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W5 CPU family
Next up, we have the Xeon W5 family with the most SKUs, totaling 8. These include the Xeon W5-3435X (16 Core), Xeon W5-3433 (16 Core), Xeon W5-3425 (12 Core), and Xeon W5-3423 ( 12 cores), Xeon W5-2465X (16 cores), Xeon W5-2455X (12 cores), Xeon W5-2445 (10 cores) and Xeon W5-2435 (8 cores).
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W3 CPU family
Finally, we have the Xeon W3 lineup which is the most entry segment with two Xeon W-2000 SKUs, the Xeon W3-2425 (6 Core) and the Xeon W3-2423 (6 Core). The Xeon W3-2423 is the only SKU in the lineup that doesn’t feature hyper-threading support, so it’s 6 cores and 6 threads.

Fishhawk Falls Platform: Up to 112 PCIe Gen5 Lanes, 8-Channel DDR5, Unlocked Multiplier
Now we come to the most important part which is the platform. The Intel Fishhawk Falls platform will use the W790 chipset motherboards and comes in two flavors. The Xeon W3000 CPU family will feature an MCM design, supporting 8-channel DDR5 memory and 112 PCIe Gen 5 slots, while the Xeon W2000 CPU family will feature a single-channel design with 4-channel DDR5 memory and 64 PCIe Gen 5 slots. Furthermore, the “X” parts will feature With a fully open design, this ensures that HEDT users will have overclock-ready motherboards to further tune their CPUs. The entire CPU cluster will use networking (MESH).
Based on the information we received last week, the Intel Sapphire Rapids-WS Xeon Workstation family will be released first in February and then officially launched in April 2023.
