About three months ago, Intel launched its 12th Gen Core series Alder Lake-S desktop CPUs at the Innovation 2021 event. Alder Lake-S needs to be paired with socket LGA1700-based 600-series chipset motherboards. And while the same socket, also sometimes called LGA1800, is expected to be re-used for the succeeding 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs too, the chipset will be all-new 700-series ones.

Motherboard vendor Biostar looks like it has already started working on the next-gen boards and has applied for Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) certification. Twitter leakster @harukaze5719 has spotted a number of these motherboard models, Z790 and Z760, on the EEC portal.

Z790 chipset motherboards listed on EEC

The motherboard models are:

  • Z790 VALKYRIE
  • Z790GTA Z790A-SILVER
  • B760GTQ B760M-SILVER
  • B760GTN B760T-SILVER
  • B760MX5-E PRO
  • B760MX- PRO
  • B760MX-C
  • B760MX-E
  • B760MH

The next-gen Raptor Lake CPUs will reportedly feature a new Digital Linear Voltage Regulator (DLVR) power delivery system that is rumored to drop the power consumption of these 13th gen chips by up to 25% according to Intel's internal research data (via Underfox on Twitter). Thanks to this feature, despite a 21% lowering of voltage, the Raptor Lake architecture is expected to perform 7% better.
