At CES 2023 in Las Vegas, Intel announced its 13th Gen Intel Core mobile processor lineup. The HX series is designed for powerful enthusiast laptops, the H series is for powerful and thin laptops, the P series is for performance ultrabooks, and the U series is for budget ultrabooks. A total of 32 new processors are presented.
As expected, the 24-core Core i9-13980HX clocked at up to 5.6 GHz, which is perfect for powerful gaming laptops. It is worth noting that out of 24 cores, only eight are high-performance, while the rest are energy efficient.
Since Intel Raptor Lake-HX processors use the same chips as desktop models, they also support DDR5-5600/4800 memory and feature GT2-level integrated graphics with 32 EU. Power consumption in base mode is 55W and in turbo mode is 157W.
All 13th Gen Intel Raptor Lake-HX processors support overclocking in unlocked variants and XMP 3.0 profiles for overclocking RAM. In addition, support for PCIe Gen 5 (x16 / 2 × 8), two separate Thunderbolt 4 controllers and Intel Killer WIFI6E + BT-LE Audio is announced.
Intel claims that the Core i9-13980HX outperforms the Core i9-12900HK by 11% in single-threaded workloads and 49% in multi-threaded workloads. The advantage over the Ryzen 9 6900HX in multi-threaded mode is more than 50%
