Intel Raptor Lake price target was reportedly 5-30% more than Alder Lake but Ryzen 7000's pricing allegedly threw a wrench in the works. Intel's 13th gen Raptor Lake processors are rumored to pack some impressive improvements over the 12th gen Alder Lake CPUs.

Like Alder Lake, Raptor Lake will be fabricated using Intel's Intel 7 process. At Intel's Investor Meeting 2022, it was confirmed that Raptor Lake would feature up to 24 cores (8 performance + 16 efficiency cores) and 32 threads and is socket compatible with Alder Lake systems (LGA 1700).

Alder Lake is an exciting launch for Intel and one the company is heavily pushing to gamers, with good reason—it's a stout architecture and great for gaming (see our Alder Lake performance review for our full analysis and benchmarks).
