Intel hasn't enabled DLVR for power efficiency on Raptor Lake, but it could work on future CPUs

Intel hasn't enabled DLVR for power efficiency on Raptor Lake, but it could work on future CPUs

Intel hasn't enabled DLVR for power efficiency on Raptor Lake, but it could work on future CPUs

Rumors that Raptor Lake processors should get new DLVR technology have been circulating since March last year, but nothing was known about it at the time.
Some time later, Intel registered a patent, which described the purpose of DLVR.
As it turned out, we are talking about Digital Linear Voltage Regulator (DLVR), a new mechanism that improves the energy efficiency of processors.Image source: VideoCardzThe document explained that the digital linear voltage regulator in Intel processors works in parallel with the main one, which is installed on the motherboard.
DLVR can reduce the voltage of the processor and thus reduce power consumption by 20-25%.
At the same time, a 21% reduction in power consumption allows for up to a 7% increase in performance.Image source: VideoCardzAs you know, some of the Intel Core 13th generation processors are already on sale.
However, there is no sign of DLVR technology in them.
Intel hasn't said anything publicly about the new feature either.
However, traces of DLVR were found in fresh versions of ASUS mainboards BIOS for new processors.
It is called CPU DLVR Bypass Mode Enable.
In this case the function itself does not work.
Turning it on or off has no effect.Image source: VideoCardzThe ASUS company's in-house overclocker, a.k.a.
Shamino, has said that the DLVR function is indeed supported on the company's latest motherboards, but Intel has disabled it on Raptor Lake CPUs themselves.
He also added that there is a possibility that future Intel chips will support it.Image source: ASUS ROG ForumsThe wording \"future processors\" draws attention.
The Raptor Lake chips are expected to be the last for Intel's LGA 1700 platform.
Expected after Raptor Lake processors Meteor Lake series will almost certainly require a new processor socket.
On the other hand, rumors that Intel is allegedly working on updated Raptor Lake Refresh chips are starting to appear in the web.
Presumably, they will be able to offer up to 20% lower power consumption compared to the current Raptor Lake models due to the DLVR function.

The Best Gaming Processors with Excessive Consumption - Intel Raptor Lake Reviews

Intel Raptor Lake processors started selling today, and with it, many technology sites and bloggers published reviews of the new products.\tThe Raptor Lake family differs from the Alder Lake family with an increased number of power-efficient E-core, higher clock speeds, and larger Layer 2 and Layer 3 caches.
Specifically, the Core i9-13900K offers 8 P- and 16 E-core, 3.0-5.8 GHz, 36 Mbytes of L3 cache, 253W MTP and is priced at $589.
The mid-sized Core i7-13700K has 8 P- and E-core each, 3.4-5.4 GHz, 30 Mbytes of L3 cache, MTP 253W and a price of $409.
And the specs of the younger Core i5-13600K look like this: 6P + 8E, 3.5-5.1 GHz, 24 Mbytes L3, MTP 181W and $319.\t\t\t\tWhen getting acquainted with the Raptor Lake, reviewers unanimously noted the high performance of the new products.
In multi-threaded applications, the Core i9-13900K outperforms the Core i9-12900K by 45%, and in gaming its performance is 20% better.\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tTom's Hardware Tom's Hardware As a result, the Core i9-13900K is about 10-15% faster than the Ryzen 9 7950X and 5-10% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in games.\t\t\t\t\t\tTechPowerUp That said, the Core i9-13900K and Ryzen 9 7950X perform about the same in multi-threaded content creation applications.\t\t\t\t\t\tTechPowerUp At the same time, almost all reviews note that Raptor Lake has significant consumption and high temperatures even when using very powerful cooling systems.
For example, it can consume up to 275W in multi-threaded loads, and up to 320W in stress tests with AVX2.
However, gamers are unlikely to encounter such consumption - the average consumption of the Core i9-13900K in games is about 140W.\t\t\t\t\t\tComputerbase.de In addition, some reviewers have noticed that the Core i9-13900K can be used quite effectively at reduced power consumption and underwinding.
For example, the processor hardly loses any gaming performance when capped at 125W, although it slows down in content creation applications by about 15%.\t\t\t\t\t\tder8auer Computerbase.de The journalists were more impressed than the Core i9-13900K by the inexpensive Core i5-13600K.
It lags behind the Core i9-13900K in games by a few percent and therefore is faster than any AMD processors, including flagship models.
At the same time, its average gaming consumption is only 85W, and peak consumption in resource-intensive applications does not exceed 155W.
Separately, reviewers pointed out that unlike Ryzen 7000, new Intel releases are compatible with old motherboards under LGA 1700 and can run not only with DDR5, but also with DDR4-memory.Detailed reviews of Core i9-13900K and Core i5-13600K can be found at websites: Igor'sLAB, Tom's Hardware, TechPowerUP, Techspot and others.

The new Intel Core i9-13900K flagship processor went on sale today and set a new all-time overclocking record of 8.8 GHz.
Thus, the previous record, held for 8 years, was broken.
The new achievement probably won't last that long.Image source: HWBOT / ElmorThe previous world record for the highest CPU overclocking frequency was set in 2014.
That CPU turned out to be the AMD FX 8370, released the same year.
At that time, the chip was overclocked on a single core to a frequency of 8722.78 MHz.In all the time past, none of the presented Intel processors could not even come close to the previous record overclocking representative of the ancient AMD FX series.
That all changed with the release of the new Raptor Lake series processors, the flagship of which can automatically overclock up to 5,8 GHz on 1-2 cores out of the box.The leaks of recent months clearly hinted that the Core i9-13900K has a huge potential for overclocking.
It was obvious that the processor was capable of conquering higher clock frequencies.
But few expected that the new chip which just went on sale would immediately set a new world overclocking record.An enthusiast with the nickname Elmor from Sweden entered into the HWBOT database his result of an extreme overclocking experiment with the Core i9-13900K using liquid nitrogen.
The overclocker managed to overclock the chip on a single core to a frequency of 8812.85 MHz, which is an absolute world record.
The ASUS Z790 ROG Maximus APEX motherboard was also used in the test system.

The upcoming Core i9-13900KS made its mark in CPU-Z tests, where it beat all desktop processors

At the Innovation 2022 event, Intel announced plans to release next year a limited-edition Core 13 generation processor capable of automatically overclocking to 6.0 GHz.
Most likely, we're talking about the Core i9-13900KS.
A few hours after this, leaks related to the upcoming flagship began to appear on various Chinese sites.Image source: IntelThe Chinese social network Bilibili published a screenshot of CPU-Z program with the performance data of the Core i9-13900KS processor.
It is assumed that the basis of the flagship will be the most high-quality selected chips, so it will be produced in limited quantities.
It is very likely that this processor will be the response to the release of AMD Ryzen 7000X3D processors, which will have a larger amount of cache memory compared to the conventional Ryzen 7000.

Intel showed silicon wafers with mysterious 34-core Raptor Lake processors, but didn't say what they're for

At the Innovation 2022 event, Intel showed a silicon wafer on its booth that reveals 34-core Raptor Lake-S processors not officially introduced.
As Paul Alcorn (Paul Alcorn) from Tom's Hardware writes, the company did not do it on purpose, because before that it has announced a consumer series of processors Raptor Lake, which have no more than 24 cores.Image source: Tom's HardwareJournalist points out that before that there were rumors that Intel is working on some 34-core processors.
However, it turned out later that they were just MCC chipsets for Sapphire Rapids server processors.
But the chips showed yesterday belong to the consumer Raptor Lake-S series.
This is evidenced by the sticker available on the wafer, as shown in the photo below.
The plate with the 34-core Raptor Lake chipsA closer look at the plate (photo above) makes it obvious that the uncut chips in it don't look like the standard Raptor Lake processor chips (photo below).
The cores in the chips are not arranged horizontally in two rows like in standard Raptor Lake crystals.
In addition, it seems that the 34 cores of the unknown Raptor Lake processors are connected by a kind of mesh structure, like in Ice Lake crystals (Xeon and 10th generation Core processors), as well as by a ring bus.
Also, as part of the 34-core Raptor Lake crystals can distinguish eight DDR5 memory controllers and UPI blocks, which is unusual for standard desktop models.Crystal already presented desktop Raptor Lake- SThe staff of the stand, where they demonstrated the silicon wafers, also confirmed that these processors Raptor Lake-S with 34 cores, but did not specify whether they are server or consumer.
The journalist notes that the size of crystals is much larger than the consumer model Raptor Lake-S for the LGA 1700 processor socket.It is very likely that Intel has shown crystals of some future powerful processors.
Perhaps these crystals are for high performance desktop (HEDT) processors Raptor Lake-X, or on such crystals will be built processors for workstations Xeon W or other models.
