During the announcement, Intel also confirmed that the Meteor Lake will be based on the x86 architecture and tile design. The architecture will feature multiple manufacturing processors based on Foveros packaging technology.Moreover, Intel’s 7nm fabrication node will be used to manufacture the computer node.
Intel’s 2023 CPU product roadmap: “It includes Meteor Lake for client and ‘Granite Rapids’ for data center. Both Meteor Lake and Granite Rapids will have compute tiles built on Intel 7nm. […] For our 2023 roadmap, we will also leverage our relationship with TSMC to deliver additional leadership CPU products for our client and data center customers. This is the power of our new IDM 2.0 model combined with a modular approach to design and Intel’s industry leading packaging technologies.”
