Intel Raptor Lake CPUs could be good news for gamers


Intel’s next-gen Raptor Lake processors could boost on-board cache considerably compared to Alder Lake, if a new rumor is right.

This one was tweeted by hardware leaker OneRaichu, with the claim that Raptor Lake desktop will ramp up cache to 68MB.

68M cache is interesting.😄January 14, 2022

As explained in the Twitter thread, this doesn’t include L1 cache, meaning it’s L2 and L3 (the latter are larger amounts of memory, but slower – L1 is the fastest CPU cache, but smallest).

Raptor’s purported 68MB configuration compares to 44MB for Alder Lake (which is divided into 30MB of L3, and 14MB of L2), so this would be an over 50% increase for the next-gen chips, an impressive leap.

Analysis: Cranking up the cache with Raptor – and more besides?

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Intel planning to seriously boost levels of CPU cache ...
