After several leaks in which we have seen as they increase the frequency up to more than 6.1 GHz in the next Intel Raptor Lake processors, we now see the Intel Core i9-13900 without the heat sink (IHS). This is the first time someone remove the IHS (commonly called delid) of an Intel Raptor Lake processor and we can see the interior design that this next generation will have in its full version. The video has been hung on BiliBili and shows how delicate the process is, in that they have cut a capacitor during the process.
Removing the IHS has revealed a chip design older than the previous generation due to the increase in high efficiency cores that have been included in these new Raptor Lake. Specifically 23.8mm x 10.8mm which makes a total of 257.04mmtwo compared to the 20.4 x 10.2mm of the current generation Alder Lake, this makes 208.08mmtwo What are they almost 49mmtwo smaller that of the current generation.
However, if we go back to the previous generation of the current one, the Intel Rocket Lake 11th generationwe see that the inner die is older than the next generation, with measurements of 24 x 11.7 mm that make a total of 280.8mmtwo.
Eliminating the IHS can improve processor temperatures, especially if they are higher-end whose consumption and temperature are usually higher. But remove the IHS it is a delicate process that must be done with great care so as not to damage the processor and render it unusable.

I am a Computer Engineer and my specialty is automation and robotics. My passion for hardware began at the age of 14 when I gutted my first computer: a 386 DX 40 with 4MB of RAM and a 210MB hard drive. I continue to give free rein to my passion in the technical articles that I write in Geeknetic. I spend most of my free time playing video games, contemporary and retro, on the more than 20 consoles I have, in addition to the PC.
