According to recent reports, the Intel 14th generation CPU lineup will be based on the Meteor Lake architecture and will be available in late 2023. The company’s roadmap for the next few years has also been made public. In keeping with tradition, Intel will abandon its LGA1700 platform in favour of the LGA1851 socket for 14th Generation Core processors. The 1700 socket, which was introduced roughly a year ago alongside the Alder Lake family, is used by the 600 and 700 series chipset families. Support for next-generation DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen 5 devices, as well as a wider x8 DMI for increased I/O bandwidth, are notable additions.
The Pather Lake platform will be powered by Jim Keller’s Royal Cove P-core, according to Raichu. According to reports, the LGA1851 socket may be retained across three generations of Core processors, but there is no guarantee. Furthermore, the LGA1851 socket may provide extended platform support for up to three Core lineups, including the 14th Generation, 15th Generation, and 16th Generation, codenamed Arrow, Lunar, and Pather Lake. Beginning in 2023, Intel intends to release the Raptor Lake Refresh CPU family, which will replace existing chips with an optimized process that will enable higher core clocks and better power delivery.
The performance cores in the upcoming Intel 14th generation cpu chips will be Redwood Cove, while the efficiency cores will be Crestmont. Redwood, based on the new manufacturing process node, provides a performance boost of about 15 to 25% over Raptor Cove. With the 14th generation Meteor Lake processor, Intel hopes to address the power efficiency issues that plague current-generation chips. The Core i9 13900K typically consumes more than 250W and can handle up to 300W when the power limits are removed. However, future chips will most likely require less power.
The upcoming Meteor Lake chips will feature a new architecture with significant IPC improvements. The processors will have fewer cores, better power efficiency, and a new socket.
