AMD 7000 series V-Cache CPUs to fight an Intel 13th Gen CPU that could hit 6GHz

Next generation CPUs are coming soon, and probably sooner than expected. The latest rumors point towards a September launch for AMDs Zen 4 processors, while Intel’s competing 13th Generation Raptor Lake (opens in new tab) models will follow towards the end of the year.

The first skirmish between AMD and Intel for gaming supremacy will be interesting enough, but the best SKUs are going to be held back until after the first wave of launches. We already know that AMD plans to release 3D V-cache equipped versions of some of its models. These will certainly provide improved gaming performance over non-3D Zen 4 models. Can Intel fight back? There’s a new rumor suggesting that Intel’s best chips might be able to reach up to 6GHz thanks to a mature process and architectural improvements.
