The Raptor Lake, Sapphire Rapids Workstation CPU specifications, and system information have been confirmed by a significant Intel roadmap and slide deck that has been released.
Intel Desktop & Workstation Roadmap Leaks Out: Raptor Lake Refresh In Q3 2023, Sapphire Rapids Workstation In 1H 2023
The first part of the security flaw concerns the roadmap, including workspaces and desktop computers. The requirements for multiple desktop and workstation SKUs are in the second section, and the chipset roadmap and system information are in the third and final sections. Let us begin with the Core i9-13900KS, the first chip that kicks off Intel’s 2023 computer journey.
Intel Core i9-13900KS – The First 6 GHz CPU For Desktops-
The most potent Raptor Lake CPU will be the Intel Core i9-13900KS, which has 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core arrangement. The 13900KS CPU is the first chip to reach 6 GHz right out of the box because it has a “Thermal Velocity Boost” intensity of up to that amount. The CPU has a “Turbo Boost Max” intensity of up to 5.8 GHz, whereas the P-Cores and E-Cores operate at conventional turbo frequencies of up to 5.4 GHz and 4.3 GHz, respectively.
- Core i9-13900KS 8+16 (24/32) 3.2/6.0GHz, 66MB Cache, 150W (PL1)/253W (PL2) +
- Core i9-12900KS 8+8 (16/24) 3.4/5.5GHz, 30MB Cache, 125W (PL1), or 241W (PL2)
The CPU will have 68 MB of total cache and a 150W PL1 rating that can be increased to 253W and even higher while using overwhelming power profile configurations. Once it becomes available to buy in early 2023, the CPU is anticipated to charge around $799 but will only be produced in small amounts.
Intel Raptor Lake-S Refresh CPU Family – Hybrid Refresh For Q3 2023
By the second half of 2023, Intel plans to update its Raptor Lake-S CPU lineup. The CPUs that will continue to use the “Intel 7” process node will have minor improvements like faster clock speeds and other things, and they will be compatible with the current LGA 1700/1800 motherboards. All consumer and entry-level workstation platforms with 35W, 65W, and 125W SKUs will be part of the lineup. Although the lineup is not yet known, this confirms that Meteor Lake CPUs have been postponed until 2024.

Intel Desktop & Workstation CPU Family Roadmap
Intel Desktop & Workstation PCH Family Roadmap
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation CPUs: Xeon W-2400 & Xeon W-3400
As anticipated, the Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon Workstation lineup will include models in the Xeon W9, W7, W5, and W3 segments. These models will be available in Monolithic and MCM flavors. There are 17 SKUs in the lineup, of which 8 are from the Xeon W-2400 family, and 9 are from the Xeon W-3400 family. TDPs for the Xeon W-3400 platform will reach 350W, while those for the Xeon W-2400 CPUs will reach 225W.
Family of Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W9 CPUs
The top chip in the Xeon W9 family, the Xeon W9-3495X, has 56 cores and 105 MB of L3 cache. It is preceded by the Xeon W9-3475X, which has 36 cores (82.5 MB L3 Cache).
Family of Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W7 CPU
There are five SKUs in the Xeon W7 family: the W7-3465X (28 Core), W7-3455 (24 Core), W7-3445 (20 Core), W7-2495X (24 Core), and W7-2475X (20 Core). The Sapphire Rapids-SP family is first divided into the Xeon W-3000 and Xeon W-2000 lines in the Xeon W7 lineup, which we will discuss shortly.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W5 CPU Family
Next, we get the Xeon W5 family, which has 8 SKUs. The Xeon W5-3435X (16 Core), Xeon W5-3433 (16 Core), Xeon W5-3425 (12 Core), Xeon W5-3423 (12 Core), Xeon W5-2465X (16 Core), Xeon W5-2455X (12 Core), Xeon W5-2445 (10 Core), and the Xeon W5-2435 (8 Core) SKUs are some of these.
Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon W3 CPU Family
With only two Xeon W-2000 SKUs—the Xeon W3-2425 (6 Core) and the Xeon W3-2423—the Xeon W3 lineup has been the most accessible segment (6 Core). There are 6 cores and 6 threads in the Xeon W3-2423 because it is the only SKU in the lineup without ultra-assistance.

Fishhawk Falls ‘W790’ Platform: Up To 112 PCIe Gen5 Lanes, 8-Channel DDR5, Unlocked Multiplier
Now we will get to the platform, which is the most crucial component. The W790 chipset will power motherboards for the Intel Fishhawk Falls platform, which will be available in two variations. In contrast to the Xeon W2000 CPU lineup, which will have a monolithic design and 4-channel DDR5 memory, and 64 PCIe Gen 5 lanes, the Xeon W3000 CPU lineup will support 8-channel DDR5 memory and 112 PCIe Gen 5 lanes. Additionally, the ‘X’ parts will have a fully unlocked design, which confirms that HEDT users will have motherboards that can support overclocking so they can fine-tune their CPUs. All of the CPU models will use a MESH.
The I/O on the Sapphire Rapids-112L and Sapphire Rapids-64L platforms will be almost identical, except for PCIe lanes, and will include the following:
- 8 DMI Gen4 CPU-to-PCH connections
- Up to 38 lanes for chipsets
- Up to 10 Gen 1 (5G) ports, 10 USB 3 (10G) ports, or 5 USB 3 (20G) ports
- 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes maximum
- 12 PCIe 3.0 lanes or more
- SATA 3.0 ports, up to 8
- Built-in WiFi 6E (Garfield Peak 2)
- Unobtrusive Intel WIFI 6W (Typhoon Peak 2)
- 1219-LM & I225-LM Intel Ethernet Connection
According to the information we received last week, the Intel Sapphire Rapids-WS Xeon Workstation family will officially launch in April 2023 after a February introduction.
