Intel Meteor Lake at Innovation 2023

Intel’s website for the upcoming Innovation event has released the schedule of all sessions that will take place during the two-day event in September. Of particular interest is a special session titled “Intel Client Hardware Roadmap and the Rise of AI,” which is expected to delve into the details of the eagerly anticipated Core Ultra CPUs, codenamed Meteor Lake.

It has been anticipated that Intel would reveal its Meteor Lake CPUs before the year’s end, and the Innovation event seems to be the perfect platform for this announcement. Typically, Intel uses this annual event to showcase its client products, including desktop and mobile series, as well as its new Arc graphics. This year’s event might focus on 14th Gen Core desktop and mobile CPUs, along with the upcoming Core Ultra CPUs designed exclusively for laptops (for now).

The Innovation session catalog confirms that one of the talks will be dedicated solely to discussing the Meteor Lake architecture. Additionally, a new roadmap will be presented, with a particular emphasis on AI. Meteor Lake will be the first significant client architecture to incorporate AI acceleration cores known as VPU (derived from Movidius Vision Processing Blocks), catering to low-power AI inference tasks.

Although Intel has already made some disclosures about the Meteor Lake architecture, specific details regarding SKUs, core count, clock speeds, and performance positioning are yet to be revealed. What is known is that Intel’s new hybrid and multi-die architecture will adopt a new naming scheme called Core Ultra. The non-Ultra SKUs in the same series are expected to be based on the Raptor Lake silicon.

The compute tile for Meteor Lake will utilize Intel’s “Intel 4” process node, powering Redwood Cove (Core) and Crestmont (Atom) cores. Leaks suggest that this architecture will feature up to 6 Performance cores and 8 Efficient cores, supported by 2 LPE cores located on a SoC die. Furthermore, there will be a major upgrade to the graphics architecture, featuring up to 8 Xe Cores.

Intel Innovation kicks off on September 19th.
