According to information recently published on the Chinese forum Bilibili, both Intel and AMD are planning to release processors based on their updated architectures next year. Intel will launch the Core i9 13900KS in the first half of 2023, a special model that will be Intel’s first 6 GHz processor. This processor will be the fastest home processor on the market until AMD releases Ryzen 7000X3D processors with 3D V-Cache memory.
Ryzen 7000X3D processors for 2023
As it seems, AMD plans to start with 6- and 8-core Ryzen 7000X3D processors in the initial phase, and there is no news of 12- and 16-core processors of this series. In addition, information has been published about AM5 APUs and it seems that AMD is currently working on 8-core APUs with support for DDR5-4800 memory.
What about the blue team?!
In the middle of 2023, Intel will launch its updated and improved Raptor Lake processor series with an increase in frequency of 100-200 MHz. Some rumors say that we will also meet Meteor Lake processors in late 2023, but it seems that things are not going to go that way.
It seems that Intel plans to launch Arrow Lake and Meteor Lake processors in 2024. Meteor Lake processors are configured as 6P+16E in the highest model, and we are not going to see a high-end desktop model of this series. Instead, Intel will use the Arrow Lake architecture for its next-generation Core i7 and Core i9 processors.
Intel will likely change the socket in 2024 and switch to the LGA1851 socket. This socket will most likely be used for Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake processors and even their next generation processor, Panther Lake. According to the roadmap, these architectures are going to compete with AMD’s AM5 Zen 5 processors.
