Intel Roadmap 2023: This will come in the first half of the year [Gerücht, Update: Intel bestätigt]
A leaked roadmap for Intel processors is making the rounds on the Internet, covering parts of the plan for the first few months of 2023.
Original article from 06.12.2022: Intel’s plans for 2023 are reported on the Internet. The leaked roadmap deals with the processors that Intel plans to launch in the first half of the year. As expected, it starts with the CES in January, where the H, HX, P and U models from Raptor Lake are to start. As already suspected, Raptor Lake S is also called – specifically the models without an open multiplier and the H770 and the B760 as a cheaper option to the Z790. A little surprise is Alder Lake N; These are probably processors with only E cores.
According to the leaker, corporate customers can look forward to an update to the vPro platform and new server processors. Speaking of corporate customers: They can also look forward to new processors. Intel had already confirmed Sapphire Rapids Max for January. However, server and workstation CPUs with an additional SP will probably not be presented until the end of February and should go on sale in March/April.
One or the other enthusiast might be interested in HEDT in particular, but according to reports, the division, which has been awakened from its slumber, leans more towards workstations than towards enthusiasts. Small businesses and content creators are likely to be the focus of the new Xeons. How interesting the platform will be for enthusiasts depends on the availability of suitable mainboards and ultimately on the costs incurred.

It is also emphasized that the products mentioned are not all that Intel is planning in the first months of the new year. One expects the KS model from the Core i9-13900, which should then regularly break the 6 GHz, as well as the announcement in the first quarter; the point in time should also depend on how the selection is made.

Update from 12/08/2022: At least for its HEDT platform, Intel has now made short work of it and confirmed that it should “come soon”. “You’ll need to plan your coffee breaks because Intel’s new workstation processors mean less waiting. Your workstation works as fast as you do.” What is to be understood by “coming soon” is discussed. The last stand was an announcement at CES and a release in February. Maybe it’s a little faster.
The fourth generation of the Xeon WS will probably be offered with up to 56 cores, have a TDP of up to 350 watts and appear together with the LGA-4677 socket and the W790-PCH. DDR5-4800 and PCI Express 5.0 are innovations. The 2400s probably with quad-channel and 64 lanes; the 3400s with octa channel and 112 lanes. Intel wants to compete against the AMD Threadripper Pro. However, both HEDT platforms are leaning more in the direction of workstations and small servers and less in the enthusiast market of end customers.
