Intel has officially verified its up coming-gen 7nm Meteor Lake Customer CPUs which will be heading to desktop and mobility platforms in 2023. Intel unveiled that the Meteor Lake will be the initially outing of its extremely personal 7nm EUV node in volume which will mark a substantial milestone for the firm.
Intel Confirms Up coming-Gen Meteor Lake Desktop & Mobility CPUs Start in 2023, Will Attribute 7nm EUV Course of action Node & Brand name New x86 Modular CPU Architecture
The Intel Meteor Lake lineup is now confirmed to feature a manufacturer new x86 architecture which will be creating use of a modular design. Intel will be mix-matching distinctive cores collectively, very similar to their hybrid technique on the future Alder Lake CPUs which will aspect the two 10nm Golden Cove and 10nm Gracemont cores.
We are shifting fast by 7nm procedure maturity, with a simplified system and increased EUV. The compute tile for Meteor Lake, a breakthrough 2023 client processor, will tape in following quarter. https://t.co/lY5fO1aYAJ pic.twitter.com/WzkJL0gPRw

Intel’s Meteor Lake line of desktop and mobility CPUs are envisioned to be centered on a new line of Cove main architecture. This is rumored to be recognised as the ‘Redwood Cove’ as was documented by MLID (Moore’s Law is Dead) and will be based on a 7nm EUV process node. It is said that the Redwood Cove is designed from the ground up to be an agnostic node which implies that it can be fabricated at distinct fabs. There are references mentioned that issue out to TSMC to be a backup or even a partial provider for the Redwood Cove-dependent chips. This might inform us why Intel is stating various manufacturing procedures for the CPU spouse and children.
The Meteor Lake CPUs may well perhaps be the very first CPU era from Intel to say farewell to the ring bus interconnect architecture. There are also rumors that Meteor Lake could be a entirely 3D-Stacked style and could employ an I/O die sourced from an exterior fab (TSMC sighted once more). It is highlighted that Intel will be formally utilizing its Foveros Packaging Technological know-how on the CPU to inter-join the numerous dies on the chip (XPU).
As for what Intel’s Meteor Lake spouse and children is going to offer, the family members is anticipated to aspect guidance on the LGA 1700 socket which is the same socket employed by Alder Lake processors. We can anticipate DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen five. assist. The platforms will assist equally DDR5 and DDR4 memory with the mainstream and spending plan tier alternatives likely for DDR4 memory DIMMs while the premium & significant-end choices going for DDR5 DIMMs.
The NVMe assistance is also envisioned to be minimal to PCIe Gen 4 somewhat than PCIe Gen 5 which the platform will support. So at the close of the working day, we may well see the many chipsets and platforms remaining confined just to their own era of processors they are introduced with. The start is nonetheless a few of decades away so Intel associates will have ample time to type out and do the job on long term generation assist. At this time, Intel has unveiled that they assume Meteor Lake to tape in all around Q2 2021.
