Igor’s Lab has shared a new report that suggests Intel’s “Arrow Lake S” CPU family will offer major performance improvements versus the current generation, with one graph implying up to 21% faster performance than the Core i9-13900K, one of Intel’s current Raptor Lake S flagships. Arrow Lake is Intel’s 15th generation of Core processors, set to follow the 14th Gen Intel Core “Raptor Lake S” refresh that’s expected to debut later this year.
We see on the first graph that Raptor Lake S Refresh is internally granted between one and two percent more performance, which results maximally from the clock speed increase and ultimately should not be more than up to 6 GHz for the processor. Whether and when we might see a KS model with 6.2 GHz, only the yield goddess and the marketing department at Intel know. Arrow Lake S is more interesting. Because here we are already in the range of seven to 20 percent performance increase, with the largest increase expected to be in multi-core operation.
