Intel has demonstrated its CPU Meteor Lake 14th generation in standard and thick stamps for the press who attended the Vision event. The dice show a closer look at the next-generation Blue Team chip, which will operate in the 2023 laptop and desktop segments.
The 14th generation Intel Meteor Lake processor is available in both standard and stamped high density form
Late last month Intel announced that they have achieved the inclusion of their 14th generation Meteor Lake processors, a launch scheduled for 2023. Now, for the first time, the company has taken a close-up look at Lake Meteor, which, as expected, has a multi-tile design using core IP addresses manufactured by both Intel and TSMC. They are then combined and shipped in one package at the post-processing stage.

In the pictures published PC clock, you can see that there are two different packages of the 14th generation Meteor Lake. The first is a standard package, and the second is a high-density package. One of the key differences between the 12th generation Alder Lake packages and the 14th generation Meteor Lake packages is that the latter lacks a PCH die, and instead it places it on the same chip in a tiled architecture. If you look closely, the main chip consists of at least four tiles, and each of the tiles can offer additional tiles that are sure to match the GPU, which is based on the new tGPU design (Tile-GPU).

Chips, or tiles, as Intel calls them, will play a big role in shaping the company’s next-generation chip portfolio, both CPU and GPU. In addition to Meteor Lake, Chipzilla also showcased its Sapphire Rapids Quad-Tile packages in both HBM and non-HBM, and also gave a close-up of its flagship Ponte Vecchio GPU with Xe-HPC architecture. During the “Vision Event” it was confirmed that Sapphire Rapids and Ponte Vecchio will be sent to the Argon National Laboratory to power their future Aurora supercomputer, which is due to go into operation this year.
Researchers, get ready faster # supercomputers.
Xeon with high memory bandwidth (Sapphire Rapids) + #GPU acceleration (Ponte Vecchio) = game change for scientific applications.

14th Generation Intel Meteor Lake Processors: Intel 4 Processor Node, Tiled Arc GPU Design, Hybrid Cores, 2023 Launch
The 14th generation Meteor Lake processors will change the gamer in the sense that they will take a new approach to tile architecture. Based on Intel 4 technology, the new processors will provide a 20% increase in performance per watt thanks to EUV technology and are scheduled to be brought to tape by the 2nd half of 2022 (ready for production). The first Meteor Lake processors are scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2023, and arrival is expected later that year.
According to Intel, the 14th generation Meteor Lake processors will have a brand new tiled architecture, and that basically means the company has decided to move to a full chipset. Meteor Lake processors have 3 main tiles. There are IO tiles, SOC tiles and computing tiles. Computing tiles include CPU tiles and GFX tiles. The CPU Tile will use a new hybrid core design, delivering higher performance at less power, while the graphics tile will be unlike anything we’ve seen before.
According to Raja Koduri, Meteor Lake processors will use a graphics processor with Arc tiles, which will make it a whole new class of graphics on a chip. It is neither an iGPU nor a dGPU and is currently considered a tGPU (Tiled GPU / Next-Gen Graphics Engine). Meteor Lake processors will use a completely new Xe-HPG graphics architecture, which will increase performance at the same level of energy efficiency as existing integrated graphics processors. It will also provide enhanced support for DirectX 12 Ultimate and XeSS, features that are currently only supported by the Alchemist line.
