The recent news about Intel MSDT CPU is quite confusing, and the whistleblower @SquashBionic has given different news from recent reports.
Benchlife previously stated that the Meteor Lake-S desktop processor, which will be launched in the first half of 2024, may be cancelled. Arrow Lake-S will be launched together with the 800 series motherboard based on the LGA 1851 socket, while Arrow Lake-S will remain Core specs for 8P + 16E; @leaf_Hobby says Intel won’t update the chipset until at least Q1 2024.
This time, SquashBionic said that Intel will launch Meteor Lake-S processors in the first quarter of 2024, while Arrow Lake-S will not come so soon.
It is said that the MTL-S base frequency support can reach DDR5-6400, but it also depends on the specific configuration of the die. He said: The current MTL-S (6+8) supports 5600 MT/s; while MTL-S (6+16) supports 6400 MT/s, which is different from the previous specification of 8P + 16E.
In addition, according to @9550pro, it seems that Intel’s new Meteor Lake series can only be used on low-voltage platforms. At least this year’s new desktop processors and HX series processors for mobile platforms are still the Refresh version of the 13th generation Core Raptor Lake. Next year Only then will there be products with new motherboard + new architecture CPU.
The new generation of Meteor Lake will use the Intel 4 process and external process, and introduce the “Tile” design for the first time, integrating CPU, SOC, nuclear display and IOE chips.
In terms of technology, Intel announced that the Intel 7 process has been mass-produced, Intel 4 production is ready, and with the launch of Meteor Lake, Intel 4 production capacity will be increased in the second half of this year.
In addition, the Intel 3 process is also advancing as planned, and the test chips of Intel 20A and 18A processes have been taped out.
