we know the names of the processors for desktop PCs which will arrive at the end of the year

Intel’s 14th generation Raptor Lake CPUs have only just been released, but some gamers already have their eyes on the chip giant’s next generation: Arrow Lake.

At a recent MSI event, TOPPC, the company’s elite in-house overclocker, gave some tantalizing hints about what we can expect from Arrow Lake desktop processors when they arrive at the end of the year 2024. Although not very specific, comments from TOPPC suggest that Intel’s Arrow Lake-S “Core Ultra 200” desktop processors will feature an updated DDR5 memory controller that could enable massive DDR5 overclocking headroom.

Current generation Raptor Lake chips only officially support DDR5-5600, but overclockers have already pushed the kits beyond the DDR5-11000 barrier on high-end Z790 motherboards. If the rumors are confirmed, Arrow Lake’s improved memory controller could enable support for speeds greater than DDR5-10000 right out of the boxwhich would allow the ceiling of 12000MT/s to be exceeded for overclocked DIMMs.

Intel Arrow Lake chips are revealed before their time

The memory guidance aligns with other previously leaked Arrow Lake desktop specs. The chips are expected to use a new LGA 1851 socket and 800 series chipset, with up to 24 cores (8P+16E) without Hyper-Threading enabled. DDR5 will be the only supported memory type, without compatibility with DDR4. We also expect an increase in PCIe 5.0 lanes for the CPU and chipset.

In addition, we now know thanks to the leaker Raichu that the first chips to be launched for the Arrow Lake series will be the Intel Core Ultra 9,285K, Core Ultra 7,265K and Core Ultra 245K. If these names seem complicated to you, you can read our article in which we explain how to navigate them.

After that, we expect to see more non-K chips, that is to say chips that are not compatible with overclocking. These new processors should arrive at the end of 2024, but we will obviously keep you informed.
