Core i7-13700H, Core i5-13500H Retain Same Core Count As Alder Lake Counterparts.
It’s possible that mobile Raptor Lake CPUs only slightly beat Alder Lake in multi-threading.
According to hardware leaker momomo_us, the specifications of the Core i5-13500H and Core i7-13700H, Intel’s Raptor Lake mobile processors, are revealed. The CPU core counts, which aren’t increasing, were revealed on the spec sheet. Similar to their counterparts, the Core i5 and Core i7 versions contain 12 and 14 cores, respectively. It differs from desktop counterparts of Raptor Lake, where the E-cores’ core counts significantly increased.
While the Core i9-12900K had eight P-cores and eight E-cores, the Core i9-3900K had sixteen E-cores as compared to eight in the Core i9-12900K. Similar increases in E-core core counts were seen on lower-end desktop components from Intel, such as the Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600K. Both the Core i7-12700H and Core i5-12500H have eight E-cores, which is twice as many as the Alder Lake i7-12700K and i5-12600K and the same as the Core i7-13700K and Core i5-13600K desktop CPUs.
For better or worse, Intel decided that these mobile CPUs did not require additional E or P cores. The Raptor Lake mobile parts’ thread and core counts are the same as those of its founders; thus, we can be confident of this. (E-cores lack HyperThreading; P-cores have it). Therefore, as the Raptor Lake desktop components do, we shouldn’t predict that these chips will perform much better in multi-threading than Alder Lake. However, these components will have faster Raptor Lake performance cores because of all the changes Intel made to the new architecture.
Similar to what we saw with Raptor Lake desktop processors, the E-cores should also get some upgrades, such as a slight increase in clock speed. Therefore, more single-core-focused applications, like gaming, should significantly improve. Luckily, the time it takes for these chips to hit the market won’t be too lengthy. By the end of the year, Raptor Lake mobile will be available, according to Intel CEO Pat Geisinger.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the difference between the Core i5 and i7 significant?
The Intel Core i5 is an all-purpose processor that offers reliable performance for web browsing, gaming, and carrying out easy tasks. The Intel Core i7 offers more processing power for demanding applications, high-performance gaming, and content creation and editing.
In 2022, should I buy an i5 or an i7?
A speedier processor is an i7 than an i5. Because it has larger cache memory, the CPU can access data more quickly. Additionally, it has more cores and a faster clock speed, increasing the number of instructions it can process per second. Therefore, it depends on your needs.
Are i5 and i7 processors work with one another?
The two CPUs’ power consumption is very slightly different, however, the i7 processors have a longer battery life than the i5. Depending on their battery life, the two processors can be switched out.
