Thanks to the latest platform review diagram from Igor’sLab, we have the most important inside details on Intel’s 14th Gen Core Mobile CPU – Meteor Lake. All set to launch in the second half of 2023, it will come in a three product series; the H, P, and U. This would be the first time we would be talking about these series. The interesting fact about these is that each of them represents a different power segment.
We have also got information on a third CPU which has been listed as LP E-Core. The name could very well be suggesting Low Power Efficient Core and it seems very likely since we had been hearing rumors for some time regarding some ultra-low power small cores. Intel is indeed planning to implement a third kind of core into the architecture, just like the ARM architecture which also features three different cores.
@OneRaichu is of the view that this third core is going to be implemented only in the SoC tile and not the compute tile which includes the P and E cores. Additionally, there are only two ultra-low power cores which is why they haven’t been part of the total core count of the CPU.
From this latest information, we can deduce that both the Meteor Lake-H and Meteor Lake-P are going to come with a total of 14 cores whereas the Meteor Lake-U is going to have 12 cores in total. The new architecture also comes with support for DDR5-5600 or LPDDR5/LPDDR5X-7467 memory. The CPU can support 96 GB of DDR5 memory and 64 GB of LPDDR5 standard.
There is mention of Intel’s Xe-LPG graphics architecture as well, based on the Xe² as mentioned in the same documents. The Meteor Lake (MTL) series of H/P/U integrated GPUs is going to feature 128 Execution Units. What Xe² stands for here is still unclear to us. It might represent a new gaming architecture (the Battlemage) or it might be a low-power version of Alchemist. As for the discrete GPU, the MTL supports the PCIe Gen5 interface with 8 lanes on the H series.
