We’re here in Israel for Intel’s Technology Tour 2022, where the company is sharing new information about its latest products, much of it under embargo until a later date. However, the company did share a slide touting that Raptor Lake has set a world overclocking record at 8GHz, obviously with liquid nitrogen (here’s our deep dive on the 13th-Gen Intel processors).
As you can see in the graphic above, the Israel Development Center (IDC) has been the design engine behind a long line of Intel products spanning back to the 8088 that started it all back in 1979 (here’s a look back). That lineup spans until today, encompassing well-known names like Pentium MXX, Banias, Sandy Bridge, and many others.
All of this culminates, at least for now, with the 13th-gen Raptor Lake processors that Intel will formally announce soon. Aside from the teaser about the new 8 GHz overclocking record for Raptor Lake (though we aren’t sure if it is the overall world record or merely a world record for Intel’s 10nm chips), the company hasn’t shared many details yet. Naturally, more information will follow during the NDA’d meetings held over the next several days, and we’ll share that information soon.

Intel has been very forthcoming with details so far, sharing interesting details like the image above — the above checklist is the first list of design goals for Alder Lake.
Intel is also sharing much more information about its design and validation process, with the slide above touting that the development cycles was eight months shorter due to backward compatibility with Alder Lake.
