Intel’s upcoming 13th-generation processors (codenamed Raptor Lake) have accidentally had their specs leaked by Intel itself, just a day after an official announcement that at least one of the new CPUs will run at 6GHz at stock speeds.
The Core i5-13600K, i7-13700K, and i9-13900K CPUs had their specs posted on Intel’s Canadian website before the computing giant realized its error and pulled the information. Twitter users were quick to spread the gaffe (which you can still find here in a cached version from the Wayback machine).
The article revealed that the top-of-the-line i9 13900K will feature 24 cores and 32 threads, with the performance cores running at a maximum frequency of 5.4GHz. The i7 13700K will be available with 16 cores and 24 threads, with up to 5.3GHz on the performance cores. Finally, the i5 13600K will ship with 14 cores and 20 threads with a max frequency of 5.1GHz on the performance cores.
All of this information comes from an official source, so it unsurprisingly matches leaked slides that appeared online last week. The official-looking media mentioned that both the 13th Gen Core i9 and Core i7 processors will be able to deploy two performance cores, boosting up to 5.8GHz via Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost.
Intel still hasn’t officially announced its Raptor Lake processors but has offered a teaser that they will give a 15% improvement in single-threaded performance and a 41% improvement for multi-threaded work.
We’ll hear the official roadmap for these processors during the company’s September 27th innovation event, which interestingly is being held on the same day AMD is set to announce its own 16-core powerhouse — the Ryzen 9 7950X.
World’s Largest Metaverse Developer Opens Dubai Office
LandVault, the largest metaverse creator, is expanding its presence into the MENA region.
LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.
So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.
The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.
“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.
Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
