Intel and AMD are both on track to launch their next-generation of processors later this year. While for Intel this will be a continuation of its hybrid big.LITTLE design with improvements to clock speeds and core counts, for AMD it’s a much, much bigger deal. Ryzen 7000, AMD’s upcoming processor lineup based on Zen 4 architecture will be the biggest leap forward for the company since Ryzen’s inception.
AMD will finally be switching to a new platform/socket after 5 whole years on AM4. Not only that, but there are huge improvements to be expected in areas like stacked cache and even integrated graphics for the first time on mainstream Ryzen CPUs. Of course, DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5.0 support will also be added this generation, all in all making Ryzen 7000 the company’s most crucial release in a long time.
Intel will play a safer card by applying minor improvements to an already successful foundation. Raptor Lake, or 13th Gen, will see Intel increase the Efficiency Core count to 16 with all new overclocking and power delivery features that will take Intel’s clock speed dominance even further. In fact, it’s already rumored that the top-end i9-13900K chip can hit a max boost frequency of up to 5.8Ghz out of the box.
Despite both teams’ offerings being at least months away, the popular hardware monitoring and information tool, CPU-Z has already added official software support for both Ryzen 7000 and Intel 13th Gen Core series in its latest update. Not only that, we’ll also see support for AMD’s current-gen Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” mobile APUs added to CPU-Z with this update.
There are also some GPU love shown here, as well. AMD’s new Radeon 6800S series along with its XT variants will now be supported by CPU-Z. Moreover, Intel’s new Arc A-Series mobile GPUs, the company’s first consumer discrete graphics option and NVIDIA’s new RTX 3090 Ti, Green Team’s new BFGPU, both will be reported on by CPU-Z through the Graphics tab, thanks to the most recent update.
