When is the 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” release date? It’s happening in September and available for purchase in October. Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger has confirmed the release date of the 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” CPUs. According to him, the desktop series will launch this fall and the mobile (laptop) series by end of 2022.
“We are building on Alder Lake leadership with Raptor Lake in the second half of this year and Meteor Lake in 2023 […] To date, we’ve shipped well more than 35 million units of Alder Lake. Within the current market, we are also seeing relative strength in the premium segments we serve across consumer and commercial. We expect to build on this momentum with the launch of our next-gen product family – Raptor Lake – starting with our desktop SKUs this fall, followed by our mobile family by end of the year. The Raptor Lake family will offer customers significant advantages, including double-digit performance gains gen-on-gen and socket compatibility with Alder Lake. And in 2023, we will deliver our first disaggregated CPU built on Intel 4 – Meteor Lake – which is showing good health in both our and our customers’ labs.”Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger
The desktop processor is expected to be announced at the Innovation event by Intel. The event is scheduled to hold on September 28th. However, availability for purchase is expected to begin a few weeks after the launch events. So the 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” release date will happen in September while sales commence in October.
