Intel plans to launch its 14th Gen Meteor Lake mobile processors this fall with the new Core Ultra branding. Leveraging the 4nm process node and a chiplet architecture, these chips will stack four dies atop the interposer using Foveros packaging. The CPU die will be fabbed on the internal Intel 4 node, leaving the graphics and SoC die for TSMC’s N4 and N6 nodes, respectively. We already know the core counts; the core clocks also surfaced earlier today.
According to 金猪升级包, the Meteor Lake qualification sample is boosting up to 4.8GHz with a cTDP of 20-65W. While this is lower than what existing Raptor Lake-P chips achieve, we can expect a 5GHz boost from the 28W U-series chips at release. Moreover, the leaked specifications from yesterday didn’t include the Low Power Efficiency (LPE) cores on the SoC die. When including them, Meteor Lake will have an overall core count of 16, a first for its mobility segment.
The 14th Gen Meteor Lake processors will feature an upgraded graphics architecture, namely Xe-HPG, the same IP that powers the Arc Alchemist graphics cards. Packing up to 128 EUs with a boost clock of up to 2.2GHz, this will be the fastest iGPU Intel has ever made. Theoretically, this gives us a single-precision throughput of over 4 TFLOPs, beating the Xbox Series S on paper.
