According to recent reports, Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Executive Vice President of Intel CCG Division and General Manager of Client Computing Division, confirmed in an interview with PCWorld that Intel will release desktop Meteor Lake processors in 2024.
At an innovation event on September 20, Intel revealed the latest details about their Meteor Lake processor, showcasing features like an integrated NPU, an AI power management system, and a 15% increase in battery life.
Additionally, the company disclosed that the forthcoming Meteor Lake chip would mark a substantial generational shift in their Core brand, splitting it into two distinct categories: Intel Core Ultra for flagship offerings and Intel Core processor for mainstream products.
Notably, the impending Meteor Lake CPU utilizes cutting-edge Foveros 3D packaging technology to incorporate a modular design, dividing the total processor into four separate modules – computing, IO, SoC, and graphics – representing 40 notable architectural advancements over past Intel client SoC designs.
The processor boasts a potent 3D high-performance hybrid architecture, combining high-performance Redwood Cove cores, energy-efficient Crestmont cores, and ultra-low-power Efficient cores.
Intel has optimized the energy consumption ratio in the history of PC processors and has taken the initiative of integrating dedicated neural processing.
For the first time ever, these Neural Processing Units (NPUs) capably expedite the widespread implementation of artificial intelligence throughout PC processors. Meteor Lake comprises four primary modules, each tailored to optimize specific aspects:
- Compute Module (Compute Tile): Employs state-of-the-art energy-efficient cores and performance-enhancing micro-architecture. This component leverages the cutting-edge Intel 4 manufacturing process technology, resulting in a remarkable improvement in the energy consumption ratio.
- SoC Module (SoC Tile): Features an avant-garde, low-power isolated design, integrating a robust neural processing unit (NPU). Compatible with widely adopted programming interfaces such as OpenVINO, this module empowers effortless AI development and applications. Additionally, it includes a modern low-energy efficiency core for superior energy savings and performance optimization. The SoC module also houses a memory controller, media codec processing, and display unit, supporting 8K HDR and AV1 codecs, as well as HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2.1 standards. Additionally, it is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, including Wi-Fi 6E.
- Graphics Module (GPU Tile): Integrates the Intel Sharp Graphics Architecture, delivering the capacity for standalone graphics card-level performance within the integrated graphics card. It supports Ray tracing and Intel XeSS, leading to a sizable increase in graphics capabilities and improved energy efficiency.
- I/O Module (I/O Tile): Offers cutting-edge connectivity, consolidating Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe Gen 5.0.
The Meteor Lake processor encapsulates a transformative generation advance in the Intel Client SoC roadmap, promising a revolutionary performance experience.
