Core Ultra 9 slipping to 2024, Core 5 and Core 7 on December 14th

The initial lineup of Core Ultra 100 processors may lack 9 models, claims Chinese media and reviewer “金猪升级包/Golden Pig Upgrade” 

This media outlet was the first to reveal the upcoming Intel Core Ultra CPUs, some of which have already been confirmed through early testing on platforms like Geekbench. According to the post on Weibo, it’s expected that the launch of Core 9 SKUs for Meteor Lake will not happen this year, but rather in 2024.

Intel’s current focus for comparisons revolves around four models: the Ryzen 7 7840HS, the Core i9-13900H, the upcoming Core Ultra 5 125H, and the Core Ultra 7 155H. There is no mention of the Ultra 7 165H or Ultra 9 185H, with the latter seemingly being considered for gaming laptops.

The absence of Core 9 in the initial Meteor Lake lineup shouldn’t come as a surprise. Firstly, the new mobile platform is set to launch on December 14th, so the next year is just around the corner. Furthermore, many mobile systems are often unveiled at CES, held in early January, and some companies may prefer to keep their next-gen systems featuring premium hardware a secret until the official announcement at the consumer expo in Las Vegas.

Additionally, there’s a slight chance that some GPU makers might introduce new mobile GPU models, not necessarily an entirely new series, but individual models that may be adopted by certain companies. However, there’s no evidence thus far to suggest this is the case, so it’s more likely related to CES embargoes and Intel’s production plans than anything else.

As of now, we are only aware of one Core 9 SKU, which is the Ultra 9 185H. This CPU is said to offer 6 P-Cores, 8 E-Cores, and 2 E-Cores in the SoC die. It’s reported to boost up to 5.1 GHz and, as part of the Core H-series, it should operate within a 45W power target.
