During its FY 2022 Q4 financial call last week, Intel stated that they are on course for the release of their upcoming 14th-gen CPU codenamed Meteor Lake for the second half of 2023. Intel did not specifiy specify further details especially regarding if they’re keeping it all-mobile. Rumors has been abound that Intel will keep Meteor Lake as a mobile-only CPU for the initial release and have 2023’s desktop lineup be filled by a Raptor Lake refresh.
Meteor Lake speculations sees the CPU generation featuring only 6 Performance cores but make up for it with a large Efficiency core count with the flagship CPU sporting a 6P+16E configuration. This will see power designs for 7W all the way to 35W sporting Meteor Lake CPUs with the new generation of Intel chips also brandishing their new GPUs.
Meteor Lake will be Intel’s first chiplet-designed CPU and will see parts of the entire CPU made by different suppliers and have differing nodes. The primary P-cores will have Intel’s Redwood Cove cores and the E-cores will be built with newer Crestmont cores. Nothing specific has been revealed on this exact configuration and how Intel is planning to layout their E-cores on the chip.
Meteor Lake is set to be complimented with all modern I/O and memory support as well as complimented by an Xe-LPG IGP.
