With the Alder Lake line, Intel has made Hybrid x86 CPUs available to a wider group of users, while Raptor Lake will add more E-cores to premium products. The Raptor Lake comes with up to 8 P-cores and 16 E-cores, all of which should allow for increased performance and higher clock speeds.
According to @OneRaichu, Intel should “extract” an additional 200-300MHz from Raptor Lake compared to the Intel i9-12900KS processor, which would allow the new CPU to reach a clock speed of 5.8GHz. With the Raptor Lake, Intel is approaching 6GHz processor clock speeds, as standard.
With the new processor, Intel also promises improved overclocking capabilities and increased performance above 10 percent, as well as more L3 cache. All of this should enable improved performance of the Raptor Lake processor, especially in the gaming segment.
