Intel Core series hit by Meteor

Naming redefined. 

The Intel Core 100 series tiering system is getting increasingly confusing. According to information from Golden Pig Upgrade, Intel is set to introduce the Core-U low-power series, which will go as low as 9W, and each tier will have a unique naming designation.

It’s important to note that “Core Ultra” indicates that the new CPU will be based on the upcoming silicon known as Meteor Lake. Intel is planning to release several variants of these chips with varying CPU and GPU configurations, along with different power envelopes. This series will also include non-“Ultra” chips, which are likely to feature some rebranded processors from the previous Raptor Lake series. Therefore, “Ultra” doesn’t signify a performance tier; rather, it’s Intel’s way of categorizing a new core type.

That being said, the low-power chip labeled as “Ultra” might lead to confusion for many consumers. It’s only after checking the three-digit code and noticing the “U” designation that they will realize it’s actually a low-power chip. Furthermore, it appears that the xx5U and xx4U series will also differ in power levls, with the former intended for a 15W default TDP, and the latter operating at 9 watts.

This leak originates from Golden Pig Upgrade, the same source that initially mentioned the upcoming Core Ultra 9 185H part, which was later confirmed by other leaks. Although this source has a reliable track record, it’s essential to bear in mind that this might not represent the entire product lineup, and Intel could still alter product names, especially given that the launch is anticipated in mid-December. Nonetheless, it would be reasonable to assume that silicon designs and SKU names should be firmly established if we are indeed discussing the launch of a tangible product.
