Intel has reached the tape in stage in the development of future Meteor Lake processors. This means that the manufacturer has finalized the design of the new chips and they are ready for the tape out stage, that is, for implementation in silicon and the production of engineering samples. This was announced via his Twitter page by the vice president of the company Gregory Bryant (Gregory Bryant).
Intel previously confirmed that Meteor Lake processors will use multiple semiconductor crystals, united by the Foveros layout. The chips will be manufactured using the 7nm Enhanced SuperFin process. The company also announced that Meteor Lake processors will be released in 2023.
According to rumors, Meteor Lake will be the 14th generation of Core processors to replace the Raptor Lake family. The latter, in turn, will be an update to the 12th generation of Alder Lake chips, which are expected by the end of this year.
According to leaks, Meteor Lake will receive a Next Mont hybrid architecture, and the chips will use Redwood Cove computing cores. If the rumors are confirmed, then Intel’s Meteor Lake processors will be the fourth generation of processors using a hybrid architecture of high-performance and energy-efficient cores.
Again, rumoured be the Meteor Lake series of chips will be the last processor family to support the LGA 1700 platform, which is expected to arrive later this year with the announcement of 12th Gen Alder Lake processors and chipsets for Intel 600-series motherboards.
