Future Intel processors can reach a sensational 6 GHz

If one insider is to be believed, Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs may be able to surge above the 6GHz threshold. The Core i9-12900 CPUs manufactured by the company right now can already reach speeds well above 5GHz.

Future Intel processors can reach a sensational 6 GHz

When Intel upgraded its Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) overclocking program to incorporate “future platform” support for ETVB, more evidence of ETVB was made public. Alder Lake CPUs from the 12th generation will also support the overclocking enhancements detailed in the XTU changelog.

the CPU will be able to turbo boost to 6GHz on at least one SKU thanks to Intel’s Efficient Thermal Velocity Boost (ETVB) technology. If so, it would be the first x86 processor to perform at that level.

As a refresher, Intel’s regular TVB “opportunistically” increases the clock speeds by up to 100MHz if the CPU is within its thermal limit and enough turbo headroom is available. This is how Alder Lake CPUs are able to get into the mid-5GHz range. The ETVB mode will likely be an improvement upon the TVB to perhaps allow even higher frequency boosts depending on how hot the CPU is.

Obviously, AMD isn’t sitting on its laurels, with Team Red readying its own Ryzen 7000 chips built on the new Zen 4 architecture. AMD showed off impressive results at Computex 2022, beating Intel’s Core i9-12900K by 31%. It also showed the Zen 4 chip boosting up to 5.5GHz while playing Ghostwire Tokyo.

This probably isn’t surprising considering some of the early benchmarks we’ve seen for Raptor Lake. In the Sandra benchmarking tool, it was found that the Core i9-13900 crushed the current Core i9-12900. However, we must caution that it was an early engineering sample that was tested so the actual performance numbers could vary upon release.

AMD CEO Lisa Su noted that even with such impressive results, Ryzen 7000 chips will be capable of of clock speeds “significantly” above 5Ghz. That’s not even counting any kind of overclocking potential. That said, if Intel is able to achieve 6Ghz without overclocking, that will still represent a remarkable achievement.
