Intel will soon launch the 13th-generation Core processor, codenamed Raptor Lake, with the same architecture and process. On the basis of the current 12th-generation Core, it continues to be optimized to a maximum of 24 cores and 32 threads. The highest frequency is expected to break through 6GHz, and multi-core performance is improved. 41% and the single-core improvement is also more than 15%.
In addition to performance, the 13th generation Core has some technical improvements, for example, in terms of networking, this generation will be upgraded to support Intel Connectivity Suite 2.0, which allows PC computers to use multiple networks in concert.
In Intel Connectivity Suite 1.0, Intel supports wired and Wi-FI dual network collaboration, and Wi-Fi also supports multiple frequency bands, such as 2.4GHz, 5GHz, 6GHz, etc.
Now in Intel Connectivity Suite 2.0, a 5G cellular network is added, so that you can do wired, Wi-Fi and 5G triple play, which is actually 4 networks in one if you count dual-band Wi-Fi.
However, this technology does not allow a single application to use 3 networks at the same time, that is, the speed cannot be stacked. Its main use is to allow different applications to choose a better network, such as video conferencing software, Teams, Zoom, Webex, etc. When you encounter Wi-Fi network congestion, then you can automatically turn to another network to ensure that the meeting does not drop.
In addition, to use Intel Connectivity Suite 2.0 features, there are a number of conditions, not only need to 13 generation Core processors but also use Intel’s Wi-Fi network card.
