Intel has just confirmed the launch of Arrow Lake in 2024. Arrow Lake is the successor to Meteor Lake. Intel has confirmed that it is to use a combination of three process nodes. Intel’s new die disaggregated strategy will be used for it.
Arrow Lake-P mobile architecture was mentioned by AdoredTV back in August 2021 for the first time. The report stated last year that the new architecture would feature 6 Big (Performance) cores and 8 Little (Efficient) cores. The news also mentioned that it was to feature as many as 320 graphics Execution Units (codenamed GT3), predicting a totally new performance segment for laptop APUs.
AdoredTV has now leaked the full slide from Intel’s internal roadmap almost after half a year of that leak. The info is not very useful as the product is to be released almost after two years but it sure tells us about Intel’s unique multi-year chip planning.
We can see a timeline for each silicon state, such as ES1, Alpha, ES2, Beta, QS, PV, and PRQ in the roadmap. The earliest version of Arrow Lake-P silicon is expected to appear in late 2022, while the final product should be available by week 33rd of 2023.
This slide also shows that Arrow Lake-P called “Halo” is targeting Apple 14″ premium designs, so that it can be part of the Intel EVO platform. The processor is to possess a 320EU GPU chipset, which was thought to be under 80 mm². Any changes to the design would result in extending this size and it would require TSMC wafer reassessment, as per the slide. The leaked document clearly mentions TSMC N3 as the ‘external N3’ foundry.
According to the reports, Arrow Lake-P is superior to the Arrow Lake S (desktop) series. The Arrow Lake series is going to be the 15th Gen Core series and use the same socket as Meteor Lake (at least for desktop systems).
