Intel officially unveils its 13th generation mobile CPUs that will span the entry-level and ultra enthusiast laptop segment.
Intel 13th Gen Mobility CPUs Official: Raptor Lake Core i9-13980HX is the world’s first 24-core laptop chip
At CES, Intel presents its Quad Raptor offensive with four diverse 13th-generation mobile CPUs spanning the entire laptop segment. We have the HX series that sits at the top and covers the ultra-enthusiast segment, we have the H series that covers the thin and still enthusiast laptop segment, we have the P series designed for thin and light performance laptops, and finally, there’s the U series designed for entry-level thin and light designs . Today’s highlights include:
- Intel Corporation announced its 13th Generation Intel Core family of mobile processors, led by the launch of the new flagship Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, the world’s first quad-core processor for a laptop and the world’s fastest mobile processor.
- Intel introduces 13th Generation Intel Core H-, P- and U-series mobile processors to power the latest lightweight and Internet of Things (IoT) enthusiast laptop designs.
- Intel shares new Intel Evo laptop specifications featuring longer real-world battery life and a new multi-device experience, Intel Unison.
- Intel launched the new N-Processor Intel series for entry-level education, mainstream laptops, desktop PCs, and high-end native applications.

13th Gen HX “Ultra Performance” 55W Mobility CPUs
As expected, Intel’s top 2023 SKU in the 13th Gen Raptor Lake-HX portfolio is the all-new Core i9-13980HX which is the first laptop chip to offer not only an insane 24 cores but also clock speeds of up to 5.6GHz. The Intel Raptor Lake-HX CPUs use the same dies as the desktop line and feature DDR5-5600/4800 memory support while featuring an integrated GT2-class GPU with up to 32 EU cores. The Raptor Lake-HX’s parts are rated for 55 watts base operation and 157 watts maximum turbo power. The collection includes a total of 9 SKUs which range from 24, 20, 16, 14 and 10 base flavors.
All 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake-HX CPUs come with widespread overclocking support in an open design and DRAM with XMP 3.0 support. It also supports PCIe Gen 5 (x16/2×8), dual discrete Thunderbolt 4 controllers, and Intel Killer WIFI6E + BT-LE Audio. As for the performance numbers, Intel claims an 11% increase in single threads and a 49% increase in multithreaded performance compared to the Core i9-12900HK. The CPU stabilizes over 50% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor on multi-threaded workloads.
Alongside creators’ workloads, Intel also claims up to 12% faster gaming performance compared to Alder Lake-HX CPUs.
13th Gen H “Thin Enthusiast” 45W Mobility CPUs
Next up, we have the Intel Raptor Lake-H family of eleven thirteenth generation core storage. The flagship model is the Core i9-13900HK which has 14 cores and 20 threads with a boost clock of up to 5.4GHz. The kit will feature LPDDR5-6400/5200 memory support, and while there will be the majority of discrete GPU options, the CPU itself will also carry up to 96 EUUs. TDP is rated at 45W and up to 115W MTP for the majority of SKUs while the Core i5 stack is rated at up to 95W MTP.
Similar to the HX parts, 13th Gen Intel HX processors deliver 11% faster performance across various CrossMark benchmarks, leading AMD’s Ryzen 6000 and Apple M1 Max CPUs.
CPUs 13th Gen P ‘Performance Thin & Light’ 28W & U ‘Modern Thin & Light’ 15W
It looks like Intel has scaled back its 13th-generation P-series lineup which only has four SKUs with up to 14 cores and 20 threads. The Core i7-1370P leads the pack with speeds up to 5.2GHz. The CPU family supports 28W base and 64W MTP power. All chips are Intel vPRO qualified. The U series is where the actual action takes place. These chips are targeted at laptop designs that focus on thin and light operations and don’t have any discrete GPUs. The lineup includes support for up to LPDDR5-6400 memory and TDPs range from 15W Base to 55W MTP.
Alder Lake-N Mobility/Desktop CPUs
Intel also offers Alder Lake-N SKUs for both laptops and desktops. These entry-level designs are meant to be replacements for the Celeron and Pentium series. The Core i3 N-series chipset comes with 8 cores and 8 threads with all e-cores running, support for LPDDR5/DDR5/DDR4-3200 memory and 15-7W MTP power while the N200/N100 features 4 cores, 4 threads, and 6W MTP.
We’ll have a roundup of the latest laptops featuring these chips over the next few days as the designs are revealed.
