As early as last week, the media broke the news about the 14-generation Core Meteor Lake processor photos taken at Intel’s Fab 42 project in Chandler, Arizona. Recently, the latest news from the Commercial Times revealed that Intel’s 14th-generation Core processor code-named “Meteor Lake” will use TSMC’s 3nm process for GPU processors.
Earlier data reported that Meteor Lake is manufactured using Intel 4 (7nm) process, using Foveros packaging technology, integrated computing, SoC-LP (I/O module), GPU (96~192 EU) and other three major units . But from this latest revelation, we can see that Meteor Lake actually only has the CPU part made by Intel, while the GPU and SoC-LP will actually be handed over to TSMC.
If the news is true, this processor may be built using three processes: CPU uses Intel 4 process, SoC-LP (I/O) uses TSMC’s 5nm or 4nm process, and GPU uses TSMC’s 3nm process.
But from the perspective of Meteor Lake’s architecture, Intel’s approach does not make anyone outside. This should be based on comprehensive consideration of technical indicators, production capacity, and cost.
It is worth mentioning that Meteor Lake is not the first blockbuster product launched by new CEO Pat Gelsinger in cooperation with TSMC since he took office. In the first quarter of next year, we will see Intel use TSMC’s 6nm manufacturing Xe gaming graphics card. According to the latest news, the “Meteor Lake” processor will be unveiled in the second quarter of 2023.
