According to the latest rumors from a well-known Chinese leaker, next year’s desktop processor battle will continue to be between Raptor Lake – with Intel planning a refreshed set of current 13th-gen chips – and AMD’s Zen 4.

However, we’ll see at least some new silicon quite early in 2023, when we can expect to see Raptor Lake’s new flagship, the 13900KS, a processor that Intel has already said has a boost speed of 6GHz out of the box – quite an eye-opening feat.
