Intel today confirmed that its next-generation architecture codenamed “Meteor Lake” will have its design finished in the second quarter of 2021. Intel Meteor Lake is Intel’s first 7nm client architecture, which means it will launch for desktop and mobile users under the Intel Core series.
Pat Gelsinger also confirmed that this 7nm architecture will launch in 2023. The Meteor Lake is expected to launch after “Raptor Lake”, a successor to Alder Lake. This means that Meteor Lake could debut as the 14th Gen Core series.
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.”
