We’ve hardly gotten over the launch of 12th Generation Alder Lake CPUs and already Intel has revealed that its 14th Era Meteor Lake CPUs are coming into the later phases of growth. Cnet reporter Stephen Shankland visited Intel’s Fab 42 in Chandler, Arizona and was allowed to take footage of a number of the very thrilling tech that Intel is engaged on. The pictured CPUs are constructed to check Intel’s Foveros multi-chip module packaging performance and interconnect and it reveals lots about Intel’s plans for its future CPUs.
To date, it appears as if thirteenth Gen Raptor Lake is an evolution of the lately launched twelfth Gen Alder Lake, however 14th Gen Meteor Lake is shaping as much as be a sport changer. Intel’s multi-chip module design makes use of Intel’s Foveros packaging know-how. It combines purpose-built tiles with totally different performance and even course of nodes onto a single package deal. It’s not not like AMD’s MCM method, however Intel takes it a step additional and divides the CPUs’ performance into even smaller items.
Intel’s Foveros is an umbrella time period for its superior packaging applied sciences. It begins with what it calls EMIB, or Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge and its Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs will embrace this know-how together with Meteor Lake. Past this, Intel is engaged on superior vertically stacked designs however it stays to be seen how it will translate over into desktop merchandise the place there are already vital warmth issues.
Intel beforehand said that the Meteor Lake design consists of three tiles. Curiously, the image from cnet reveals a fourth tile. We don’t but know what this tile does. One tile incorporates the CPU cores that are made up of excessive efficiency and effectivity cores. The second tile incorporates the GPU. The third tile incorporates the SoC which controls performance that features the reminiscence and PCie controllers. The essential thought is that Intel can simply swap out totally different tiles to provide totally different merchandise with vastly totally different TDPs for various markets, with out having to develop a protracted record of monolithic dies.
14th Gen CPUs are anticipated to be constructed utilizing the Intel 4 node (beforehand referred to as 7nm). We’d anticipate them to launch in late 2023. Intel is clearly making massive strides to return to a place of semiconductor manufacturing management, with Taiwan primarily based TSMC profitable numerous profitable clients lately.
