First 6GHz CPU helps establish ‘unquestioned leadership,’ Intel CEO says

On Tuesday, Intel’s chief executive positioned a 6GHz chip as just yet another milestone — and also just one his firm has promised, but has still to realize.

In a keynote deal with at the company’s Intel Innovation meeting in San Jose, chief govt Pat Gelsinger stated that when its 13th-gen Main (Raptor Lake) achieves 6GHz, it won’t always be anything to rejoice, nevertheless it allows set the tone for Intel’s ambitions.

“It was like when we crossed the 1GHz boundary,” Gelsinger claimed. “It was when we experienced a 950MHz [edition] and we claimed, it was just another 50MHz, proper?”

That could have been correct, if Intel was 1st to cross the 1GHz milestone. Sad to say, rival AMD was first to crack that mark, saying an overclocked Athlon. (Intel, nevertheless, counterclaimed that it was the very first to ship a 1GHz Pentium III, a dispute that roiled the 2000 launches of equally chips.)

In any occasion, Intel does not have a 6GHz chip, however, nevertheless it was actively playing it up just a few months in the past. The unlocked Core i9-13900K tops out at a strengthen speed of five.8GHz, and Intel promised Tuesday that a 6GHz chip would ship subsequent 12 months in “limited volumes.” Intel did not specify regardless of whether that chip would be portion of the current Raptor Lake-K sequence, or a new, enthusiast-amount element that the enterprise has however to announce.

But for Gelsinger, reaching the 6GHz mark is simply just one particular piece of the puzzle. “And for us, you know, as we rebuild the enterprise, rebuild the solution line, it is unquestioned leadership,” Gelsinger reported.

“E cores and P cores,” Gelsinger claimed, referring to the architecture’s effectiveness cores and efficiency cores. “Heterogeneity, processing at scale throughout our hybrid architecture. It’s remaining the chief in Wi-Fi functionality, memory overall performance, becoming the leader in USB and Thunderbolt functionality that we provide and becoming the chief in CPU — gigahertz is just one of these items heading forward.”

We’ll have to see if Intel usually takes the same stance if and when it can conquer rival AMD to the punch.
