There have been many rumors about the position of Intel’s 14th Gen Meteor Lake CPUs and the TSMC 3nm procedure node that will electric power its tGPU and though Intel is denying all this kind of rumors, it appears like leaker, OneRaichu, who has an absolutely flawless track document when it comes to Intel leaks, is stating that 3nm GPUs may well not be utilized at minimum until 15th Gen Arrow Lake CPUs that launch in 2024.
Intel Rumored To Drop 3nm tGPU For Meteor Lake CPUs, Instead Going To Aspect In 15th Gen Arrow Lake Chips
The rumors began pouring out when DigiTimes and TrendForce claimed that something was quite improper with Intel’s Meteor Lake CPUs, major to a prospective delay. The reviews cited the tGPU, which is heading to make use of the TSMC 3nm course of action node, to be the most important perpetrator behind the production woes.
According to my resource, I just to say Meteor lake need to not have any N3 parts.
It should be the story of Lunar and arrow. https://t.co/52yeLvBJSN

Intel naturally denied all those rumors and followed us with CEO, Pat Gelsinger’s, quotation which states that the output of Meteor Lake CPUs which use the “Intel 4” course of action node is exhibiting fantastic wellness in their individual and the customer’s fabs. Now Meteor Lake CPUs are not fully centered on Intel’s individual four approach nodes. They utilize a blend of “Intel 4” and “TSMC 3nm” IPs with the Compute Tiles staying fabricated by Intel alone and the tGPU tile becoming outsourced to TSMC for fabrication. Intel’s tGPU which stands for Tiled-GPU is anticipated to supply up to 192 Execution Units, a 2x maximize in excess of present-day iGPUs from Chipzilla but that may possibly not be the circumstance.
As OneRaichi’s most current tweet states, the 14th Gen Meteor Lake CPUs might not have any TSMC N3 (3nm) aspect. If that is the circumstance, then we can say goodbye to a 3nm tGPU and an additional rumor started out by @davidbepo reveals that the Meteor Lake Mobile SOC might be lower down drastically, going from 192 EUs on TSMC’s 3nm system node to just 128 EUs on TSMC’s 5nm method node. This will be a significant improve if the rumors are legitimate.
It seems this is true, cellular went 192 N3 to 128 N5 class

As for what transpires to Intel’s N3 deal with TSMC, it is explained that Pat may possibly have renegotiated the offer with TSMC and Intel could now employ tGPUs primarily based on the claimed procedure node on its upcoming-gen chips these kinds of as fifteenth Gen Arrow Lake and sixteenth Gen Lunar Lake.
Contemplating that 16th Gen Arrow Lake CPU lineup is envisioned to start in 2024, we may well have to hold out much more than a 12 months to see TSMC’s 3nm in motion on Intel CPUs. This would also necessarily mean that we might get a newer GPU architecture, most probable Battlemage (Xe2) or Celestial (Xe3) by the time the start of the new chips. But this is just a rumor for now on the other hand, thinking about OneRaichu’s history of Intel leaks, this could as well be very legit.
