Innovation 2023 is set to be a pivotal event for Intel, with the company confirming the unveiling of its highly anticipated Next-gen CPU roadmap and the upcoming Meteor Lake “Core Ultra” chips. The event’s main agenda will revolve around AI, with Intel focusing on several sessions centered on this cutting-edge technology.
The Intel Client Hardware Roadmap and the Rise of AI session is expected to be a highlight, hinting at Intel’s commitment to elevate its AI capabilities to new heights.
The Meteor Lake lineup, which has garnered significant attention, will come with the all-new “Core Ultra” branding. According to reports, the 1st Gen Core Ultra CPUs will boast clock speeds beyond 5 GHz, promising outstanding performance. The CPU family will be based on the groundbreaking Redwood Cove P-Core and Crestmont E-Core architectures, with the addition of Alchemist Xe-LPG iGPUs expected to provide a substantial boost in GPU performance.
The anticipated features of the Meteor Lake Mobility Next-gen CPU roadmap are as follows:
- Triple-Hybrid CPU Architecture (P/E/LP-E Cores)
- Brand New Redwood Cove (P-Cores)
- Brand New Crestmont (E-Cores)
- Up To 14 Cores (6+8) For H/P Series & Up To 12 Cores (4+8) For U Series CPUs
- Intel 4 Process Node For CPU, TSMC 5nm For tGPU
- ‘Xe-MTL’ GPU With Up To 128 EUs
- Up To LPDDR5X-7467 & DDR5-5200 Support
- Up To 96 GB DDR5 & 64 GB LPDDR5X Capacities
- VPU For AI Inferencing With Atom Cores
- x8 Gen 5 Lanes For Discrete GPU (Only H-Series)
- Triple x4 M.2 Gen 4 SSD Support
- Four Thunderbolt 4 Ports
Notably, Intel will introduce a dedicated Vision Processing Unit (VPU) for the first time, designed to be a dedicated AI engine integrated into the chip. Coupled with additional accelerators on the CPU and GPU, this VPU promises to deliver a significant boost in AI workload performance.
Intel Innovation 2023 is scheduled to commence on September 19th, and during the event, Intel will unveil its strategic vision for the future. With a focus on AI and the much-anticipated Meteor Lake “Core Ultra” chips, the event promises to set the stage for Intel’s future advancements in the technology landscape.
