Intel 13th gen gets cache boost

Recommended Posts

Intel's 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake-S desktop processor has 68 MB of L2 and L3 on-die caches. Raptor Lake-S" is a 24-core/32-thread processor with eight Raptor Cove performance cores and sixteen "Gracemont" efficiency cores.


As the screenshot will confirm, Each Raptor Cove P performance core has 2 MB of dedicated L2 cache, up from 1.25 MB on Alder Lake-S Gracemont has 16 E-cores in 4 clusters, while "Alder Lake-S" has 8 in 2 clusters. Each cluster's four cores share L2 cache. Intel quadrupled "Alder Lake" L2 cache from 2 MB to 4 MB. The chip's shared L3 cache is now 36 MB. Eight 2 MB P-cores and four 4 MB E-core clusters total 32 MB L2 cache. L2+L3 cache is 68 MB. Intel is expected to release Raptor Lake in 2022 with the 700-series chipset and 600-series backward compatibility.



It would seem Intel may have gotten some pressure, or inspiration, from the 5800X3D.
