The Intel Core i9-13980HX ‘Raptor Lake-HX’ CPU will be the world’s fastest laptop chip with 24 cores at 5.6GHz

Intel’s Raptor Lake-HX lineup will be unveiled at CES 2023 and will include the Core i9-13980HX, the fastest laptop CPU to date with 24 cores.

Intel Raptor Lake-HX CPU family features the fastest i9-13980HX laptop CPU with 24 cores and up to 5.6GHz clock frequency

So far, we know about five 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake-HX laptop SKUs that were leaked a while ago. The lineup was initially going to feature up to a Core i9-13900HX with 24 cores, 32 threads, and speeds up to 5.4GHz, but Intel decided to design a ‘Halo’ SKU that would rank higher and deliver the fastest performance of any laptop CPU out there.

Meet the Intel Core i9-13980HX, this beast of a CPU is designed to have 8 P-Cores based on the Raptor Cove and 16 E-Cores based on the Gracemont architecture. The full configuration has 24 cores and 32 threads and is the same as the desktop Core i9-13900K. The CPU also comes with the same 36MB L3 cache and has a maximum turbo frequency of 5.6GHz which is 600MHz faster than the Core i9-12950HX / Core i9-12900HX CPUs.

In addition to the Raptor Lake-HX lineup, the standard Intel Raptor Lake-P family will include a high-end Core i9-13900HK leading the pack with 14 cores (6 + 8 configuration), totaling 24MB of L3 cache and up to 5.4GHz clock speeds. . This CPU will also offer a clock boost of 400MHz over its 12th generation predecessors such as the Core i9-12900HK.

Both of the high-end Intel Core i9 Raptor Lake family of laptops will be equipped with flagship designs that will be revealed at CES 2023 along with high-end NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics options. We can also expect some premium cooling technology to be used on laptops since CPUs with this kind of specification will run a bit hot and require a lot more power than standard chips. Intel’s Raptor Lake-HX CPU lineup will be positioned directly against AMD’s Dragon Range laptop CPU lineup which is also expected to repurpose desktop silicon on laptops with up to 16 cores and 32 threads.
