Intel confirms its plans to release a 6 GHz Raptor Lake CPU - i9 13900KS Perhaps?

Intel has a 6 GHz processor on the horizon

At the company's Tech Tour event in Israel, Intel has revealed their they have plans to release a Raptor Lake processor that can deliver 6 GHz clock speeds. Intel has claimed that they have created the world's "1st 6GHz" processor, and have also revealed that overclockers have already pushed Raptor Lake to 8GHz. 

Intel has also revealed that their Raptor Lake series processors should offer users a 15% increase in single-threaded performance and a 41% increase in multi-threaded performance over Alder Lake. These performance increases are based on SPECint207 data.

Intel's i9-13900K is rumoured to reach clock speeds of up to 5.8 GHz, suggesting that Intel's 6 GHz processor is a new KS series processor. Intel's KS series processors typically launch a few months after their K-series counterparts, offering users higher core clock speeds. Intel's hypothetical i9-13900KS processor could launch at CES 2023, acting as an answer to AMD's rumoured V-Cache enhanced Ryzen 7000X3D Zen 4 processors.

Intel is reportedly planning to launch their Raptor Lake series processors at an event on September 27th, the same day that AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors will be available for sale.

I imagine in reality it will Blip at 6ghz which is enough to say it can be reachedQuote

AMD did exactly that when their CPUs boosted lower than advertised. And they got away with it. Why not learn from the competition? More important is that it looks like the new CPUs will perform really well no matter the camp. What they're saying in the marketing material is rarely important.Quote

Long enough for a CPU-Z validation or HWINFO to record a max clock speed no doubt.

Imagine the sheer power draw and thermal outputQuote

Exactly. Realistically its all BS, but technically it validates their marketing and presentations which they also have evidence.

But im just making assumptions. Lets see actually reviews and tests later on.Quote

I don't think its BS.

It's common knowledge Intel have struggled really hard trying to shrink. We know this, given the amount of 14nm CPUs they produced. However, each of those had increasingly higher clock speeds.

It's hard to say what sort of frequency they should be hitting now. Mostly because they have struggled so much. Its not something you can exactly put a roadmap on.

However, AMD's Ryzen has been statistically poor since its launch when it comes to clock speeds. What you see is often what you get, with no wiggle room at all for overclocking. So if Intel work on their node what clock speeds can they reach? like I say, it is hard to know.

It's definitely the one thing that has become stagnant, though, so maybe it's what will happen a lot in the future.Quote
