First Intel Meteor Lake and Raptor Lake Refresh details
What may be the very first Intel slides for the next-gen laptop series have just been shared by YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead.
The latest presentation slides finally reveal the core count for the upcoming mobile platform. While the company had previously confirmed the usage of Raptor Lake Refresh for top-tier chips, it seems that the majority of the series will rely on the all-new Meteor Lake lineup. The slide illustrating the CPU series tiers indicates the continuation of six power segments.
Intel next Mobile SKU lineup
- 7W (Meteor Lake) 5 to 9 cores – (1P+8E max)
- 9W (Meteor Lake) 6 to 10 cores – (2P+8E max)
- 15W (Meteor Lake) 6 to 12 cores – (4P+8E max)
- 28W (Meteor Lake) 10 to 14 cores – (6P+8E max)
- 45W (Meteor Lake) 12 to 14 cores – (6P+8E max)
- 55W (Raptor Lake Refresh) 14 to 24 cores – (8P+16E max)
Interestingly, despite Intel’s emphasis on the “Meteor Lake Lineup,” the inclusion of Raptor Lake is evident in the last column, labeled as “RPL” (Raptor Lake). Apart from the discrepancy in CPU core count, the major distinction lies in the GPU upgrade for Meteor Lake, which boasts the cutting-edge Xe-LPG architecture, based on Alchemist. On the other hand, the higher-end SKUs featuring Raptor Lake will retain the same architecture as the current iteration, with a limitation of 32 units.
Furthermore, the upgraded graphics of Meteor Lake are showcased with Xe Cores, reaching up to 8 units, thereby offering a potential of 128 Vector Engines and 1024 FP32 cores, similar to the existing Arc A380 GPU. Additionally, a new slide introduces the Xe-LPG architecture, highlighting advancements in power and area optimizations, support for advanced DX12U graphics, and a remarkable 33% increase in graphics core capabilities.
As Intel is preparing to unveil its new platform, the slides revealed today by MLID still lack many details. Including the final SKUs names and their clocks. However, Intel is now more than likely to unveil more info at the Innovation event in September.
