If we are to believe a new report, the forthcoming 13th Generation Raptor Lake processors will feature something special to offer unbeatable performance while running heavy applications. Specifically, the upcoming chips will have a 350W power limit when users enter into a new turbo mode that will increase CPU clocks. However, things are not what they appear sometimes, that is the case with this new feature as well. There is a catch, the new mode will work only with Intel’s 700 series chips.
What’s more, the new turbo mode has much to offer to the users. It will increase the Core i9 processor’s performance to up to 15%, but for a limited time. It is worth mentioning that users will need an extremely capable cooling system to make full use of the new functionality. Overall, users will need an AIO or a huge air cooler.

Details about Intel 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors
The power levels of Intel‘s 13th-Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ processors should be the same as those of Intel 600-series chipset-based motherboards that were initially designed to support 12th-Gen Core ‘Alder Lake’ CPUs: 125W to 150W processor base power (PBP) for base clocks and 241W maximum thermal power (MTP) for turbo clocks. However, Intel makes a brand-new 350W MTP available on a few motherboards equipped with its premium Z790 chipset to boost the maximum performance of the next Raptor Lake processor.
Interestingly, Intel’s Core i9-12900KS already features Enhanced Thermal Velocity Boost (ETVB) support. This feature can increase the MTP beyond 241W. These levels are Intel’s sixth adaptive boost levels for client chips. These chips are special in terms of that they can enable very high single-core turbo clocks for ‘tau’ seconds. Now, as we already discussed, the new mode will bring exceptional performance gains but for a limited time.
