Raptor Lake CPU and Arc A770 GPU pop up in benchmark | Hardware

New Intel chips are jointly tested

A test result with a 24-core Raptor Lake CPU and an Arc A770 video card from Intel has surfaced on UserBenchmark.

Of results page was initially encountered by hardware insiders @Tum_Apisak† Apparently it is a test system, apparently with some restrictions for the chips yet to be released.

It is still unclear which precise processor is involved in the thirteenth Intel Core generation (Raptor Lake), but the presence of 24 cores and 32 threads reveals that it is probably a high-end model. The same CPU was probably already used found earlier in early benchmarks. This time, the cores run at 2.4 GHz, with a boost clock of 4.6 GHz.

The GPU in question is the Intel Arc A770, which is presumably the next premium model in the Arc series. It is striking that the GPU here seems limited to only one gigabyte of video memory, where previous rumors volumes of 8 GB and 16 GB predicted. With the limited VRAM, the benchmark results have also collapsed disastrously — too deep to compare with the competition.

The system also runs on a PCIe 4.0 SSD from Western Digital and 2 x 16 GB of DDR5 memory from Micron. Both components, just like the Raptor Lake processor, appear to achieve good results, according to UserBenchmarks relative data. Versus the Core i9-12900KIntel’s current top model, the new test system performs just a little faster on many fronts.

The ‘leak’ surrounding UserBenchmark breaks Intel’s own silence around the two new components. There has been little talk lately about both Raptor Lake processors and the first Arc desktop cards. Meanwhile, Intel has promised to launch the discrete GPUs this quarter (already possible delay lurking), while Raptor Lake has yet to officially kick off before the end of the year.
