Mysterious Intel Core Ultra 5 1003H sample appears

Intel is currently testing its next-gen mobile platform known as Meteor Lake-P.

The sample spotted over at Ashes of the Singularity benchmark website shows a new processor called Core Ultra 5 1003H with 18 threads. The name is obviously something we have not seen before on any Intel product, but the company is known for using different names for its engineering samples. With the first LGA1700 CPUs codenamed Alder Lake, Intel used names like Core-1800 before. That said, this could be an indicator that “Core Ultra 5” is not actually a replacement name for “Core i5” but only a temporary name for a test sample.

It is also worth reminding that Intel had already confirmed that the Meteor Lake CPU should be part of the 14th Gen Core series, so this ‘leak’ only makes things even more confusing.

As for the sample itself, we are looking at a mobile chip using 2.1 GHz GPU clock, TDP at around 45W and 128 Compute (Execution) Units. According to the benchmark data, the CPU has 18 threads, which is an uncommon configuration for an Intel CPU. This either means 6 Performance cores combined with 6 Efficient cores (12 cores & 18 threads) or an inclusion of Meteor Lake’s SoC Tile with 2 additional Efficient cores. In this case, the CPU config would be 4 Performance, 8 Efficient and 2 SoC cores (14 cores & 18 threads).

While sharing Q1’23 Earnings data, Intel reaffirmed its plans to introduce the Meteor Lake series in the second half of 2023. We are definitely expecting the mobile series to launch first alongside Raptor Lake Refresh for desktops.
