Intel’s 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake-S” desktop processor could come with core counts as high as 24, overtaking AMD’s number for mainstream desktops, for the first time since 2017. There is, however, a big catch, The 24-core chip could comprise of 8 “big” P-cores, and 16 “little” E-cores, according to a report by AdoredTV. The silicon features 8 “Raptor Cove” P-cores, which succeed “Golden Cove,” introducing IPC and instruction-set improvements; while the type of low-power E-cores remains to be determined. AdoredTV predicts that the Core i9 brand extension could max out the silicon with 8+16 cores, while lower Core i7 SKUs could be 8+8 cores, and Core i5 6+8 cores. The TDP of Unlocked K SKUs could be rated at 125 W, and the other “locked” ones at 65 W.
