Today, Intel has officially confirmed that they have taped in their Meteor Lake’s compute tile. This means that Meteor’s Lake design is ready and can be completed to tape out the whole chip. The term, Tape-in is quite new which is used for non-monolithic designs. Intel Meteor Lake will be a non-monolithic design as it will have different manufacturing processes, which will be packed using Intel Foveros technology.
Rumors suggest that Intel Meteor Lake will power Intel’s 14th Gen Core series, which is expected to arrive after Raptor Lake, which is the successor to Alder Lake. Indeed, Intel is using various codenames, and a lot of work is going on at Intel.
Intel has confirmed that Meteor Lake will arrive in 2023. It will feature a 7nm Enhanced SuperFin node. As per the rumors, we can expect a hybrid of Redwood Cove core and ‘Next Mont’ architectures in Meteor Lake; hence making it Intel’s fourth product series to feature a hybrid of high-performance and high-efficiency cores. Moreover, it is rumored that Meteor Lake will be the last series to support the LGA1700 socket, which will arrive later this year in 600 series motherboards for Alder Lake CPUs.
