This year, Intel unveiled its Alder Lake-S desktop CPUs at the Innovation 2021 event. Alder Lake-S requires a motherboard with a socket LGA1700-based 600-series chipset. Also, while the 13th generation Raptor Lake CPUs will use the same socket, frequently referred to as LGA1800, the chipset will be all-new 700-series.
Biostar Z790 Valkyrie, Z790 Racing GTA, and Z790-A Silver motherboards have been added to the Eurasian Economic Commission’s website. It has also been confirmed that the new mid-range series would be referred to as B760. These new motherboards are all designed to work with Intel’s 13th generation Core processors, codenamed “Raptor Lake”.
This has been verified by Biostar. Currently in development, the 790 series does not exist in its current form.
Biostar, a motherboard provider, appears to have already begun development on the next generation of boards and has applied for certification by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Many of these motherboards have been detected on the EEC portal by Twitter leaker @harukaze5719.
Among the motherboards available are:
- Z790 VALKYRIE
- Z790GTA Z790A-SILVER
- B760GTQ B760M-SILVER
- B760GTN B760T-SILVER
- B760MX5-E PRO
- B760MX- PRO
A new Digital Linear Voltage Regulator (DLVR) power supply mechanism is expected to reduce the power consumption of Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake CPUs by up to 25%, according to Intel’s internal research (via Underfox on Twitter). As a result of this innovation, the Raptor Lake architecture should perform seven percentage points better even if the voltage has been reduced by twenty one percent.
DLVR compatibility is shown among other new features like LPDDR5X support and enhanced CPU Cache for gaming in the leaked image above (via VideoCardz).
