Intel Raptor Lake can become the first x86 processor to reach 6GHz

Recently, Intel has updated the overclocking software Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) and launched version Intel has added three new features for overclocking on future new platforms:
  • Added per-core OC TVB support
  • Added package OC TVB support
  • Added Efficient TVB support
Raptor Lake

At the same time, Intel dropped support for the 7th generation Core (Kaby Lake), and the dynamic Intel Speed ​​Optimizer function was optimized, Windows 11 22H2 is supported, as well as undervoltage protection, kernel isolation memory integrity, virtual machine state, and Hyper-V state detection and notification updates. This series of moves by Intel is obviously in preparation for the upcoming 13th generation Core (Raptor Lake).

Recently, some netizens revealed that in E-TVB mode, the frequency of Intel Raptor Lake may reach 6GHz, but it does not appear in general models. This means that Intel Raptor Lake is likely to be the first x86 processor to reach 6GHz, and the model to reach this frequency may be a version like the KS. It is said that support for E-TVB may depend on the cooling efficiency of the entire platform, which varies with specific processor models and cooling conditions.

There have been rumors that Raptor Lake will use DLVR technology. In Intel’s patent description, DLVR means digital linear voltage regulator, which is an additional voltage regulator in parallel with the main regulator, which can reduce the power consumption of the processor. Intel said that DLVR technology needs to be less expensive and less complicated to adjust. However, some people speculate that it may need to be used with a 700 series chipset.

Intel hopes to bring double-digit performance gains to the new generation of processors by introducing new tuning techniques, along with improvements to hybrid architectures, and higher frequencies.
