It’s hardware season, and Intel is ready to bat next. The company is hosting its next Intel innovation event, and today’s event is expected to focus on its next desktop processor, the 13th-gen Raptor Lake.
These highly anticipated new chips are a sequel to last year’s 12th generation Elder Lake, which represented a massive sea change in the world of Intel chips. Along with the adoption of a higher core count, “hybrid” processors resulted in some impressive leads over the competition. But with AMD’s strong showing in the Ryzen 7000, the pressure is back on Intel to deliver the performance it needs to stay on top.
However, this phenomenon is far more touching than these new processors. With over 100 sessions for the two-day conference for developers and partners, the main thing is only the tip of the iceberg – but it’s the part PC enthusiasts will pay the most attention to. Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger is expected to open the presentation, which begins at 9 a.m. PT and can be livestreamed from Intel’s website.
