Millions of Meteor Lake CPUs to ship next year

Intel announced its plans for Meteor Lake.

The next-gen update for client processors is now being prepared for launch. Intel is not confirming when the new Core series codenamed “Meteor Lake” are set to launch exactly, but it is expected we might see them this year. In a new blog post, Intel is praising Meteor Lake’s built-in neural VPU (Versatile Processing Unit), which is part of the System on the Chip chiplet. As we know, Meteor Lake will use a disintegrated approach to CPU design, which allows the company to mix different building blocks, including processing units or graphics.

Meteor Lake’s VPU unit is a dedicated AI engine that can efficiently run AI models, claims Intel. Combined with the power of CPU and GPU AI acceleration, Intel is playing big in advertising the AI capabilities of their Meteor Lake CPU. Besides mentioning ‘AI accelerated transformation at scale’, the company is not explaining what features consumers could expect in real-world use. Whether this processor will accelerate advanced chat algorithms, AI-generated artwork, or video upscaling is something we do not know yet.

What we do know is that Intel’s announcement was part of the Microsoft’s disclosure about improved WinML/DirectML acceleration in Windows 11. Intel’s VPU unit will likely take advantage of these new features that will be natively implemented into the operating system.

Over the next year, Intel aims to ship millions of units of Meteor Lake with its dedicated AI engine.

Intel plans to ship millions of these CPUs to consumers next year. Hopefully, the company won’t encounter any hurdles in delivering on that promise.

New Core Ultra 7 1003H processor spotted

Speaking of Meteor Lake, there is a new leak featuring MTL-P (Meteor Lake-P) mobile processor. This unusually named CPU has been tested with PugetBench benchmark.

The company confirmed it will change SKU naming for the next-gen client CPUs, so the Ultra 7 1003H is one of these new CPUs, not technically ’14th Gen Core’ anymore. This mobile CPU was paired with 16GB of DDR5-5600 memory, which should be standard memory for the series. Furthermore, we can see it lists Video Card as Arc Graphics, which is a reminder that Meteor Lake will use Xe-LPG architecture, a low-power and integrated version of Alchemist.
