During the Technology Tour 2022 conference, Intel revealed that one of its next CPUs from the 13th generation would have the ability to function at a speed of 6 GHz.

She also mentioned that the next processor's operating frequency would be able to be adjusted, and that this will allow it to achieve speeds of up to 8 GHz.

Other enhancements have been promised for this new generation, which has been given the name Raptor Lake. These improvements include an increase in single-threaded speed of 15 percent and an increase in multi-threaded performance of 41 percent.

Intel's rival, AMD, recently announced that its next flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor with 16 cores would have a boosted speed of up to 5.7 GHz, and this development represents a significant step forward in the fight between the two companies.


While initial speeds aren't everything and their value ends when it comes to performance, hitting the 6GHz barrier would be an important marketing win for Intel, which has struggled in recent years to compete with AMD in the CPU market. If Intel were to achieve this goal, it would be an important marketing win for Intel.


Since the lineup of 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors has not yet been formally disclosed, it is unclear whether or how many generations of processors will be able to achieve that speed.

It is possible that the Intel CPU clocked at 6GHz is a KS-branded variant of the forthcoming 13900K chip.

Although official information on pricing and a release date have not been disclosed as of yet, Intel is planning to provide further information regarding this product during an innovation event that will take place on September 27 in San Jose, California.

It just so happens that AMD has scheduled the release of its Ryzen 7000 CPUs on the same day as today.
