Intel’s 12th-generation Core Alder Lake processor will be available soon. It will also upgrade the Intel 7 process, which is the previous 10nm SF improved version, in addition to the large and tiny core architecture.
Meteor Lake will be at the turn of 2023, and the 13th-generation Core will be an upgraded version of the 12th-generation Core, code-named Raptor Lake. This is a 14th-generation Core with an Intel 4 process update.
The prior 7nm process is now known as Intel 4, and the official nomenclature has been altered to reflect this. Compared to Intel 7, this generation will implement EUV extreme ultraviolet lithography, which will boost energy efficiency by around 20%. It will be put into production in the second half of next year.
Meteor Lake is the first Intel 4 process product, and it will employ more advanced Foveros 3D packaging technology to incorporate several cores.
Meteor Lake has three sections sealed together, according to the newly released schematic diagram: one is the processing module, the other is the GPU module, which has up to 96-192 computing units, and the third is the SoC-LP, which should include a memory controller and PCIe management. The device’s input and output portions are comparable to AMD Ruilong/Xiaolong Li’s IO Die.
Meteor Lake processors have now been taped in, and the design has progressed to the next step. The first mass production will begin in the second half of next year, with availability in 2023.
Intel has increased its investment because of the increased complexity of the Meteor Lake generation process update. According to the official financial report, it spent 4.55 US dollars, or roughly 2.9 billion yuan, on this component in the third quarter. As the items progress to the next step, Intel 4 In the future, the cost of the procedure will rise.
The development and production of modern process processors is a very expensive process. According to Intel’s approach, revenue may potentially exceed $2 billion per year, with tens of billions of yuan available to develop a high-performance processor.
