intel It was unveiled on Tuesday’Meteor Lake‘Processors that will come into computers by the end of the year. New intel core ultra The chips are built using the company’s 7nm “Intel 4” technology and are Intel’s first processors equipped with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for improved AI performance on the device. Like rivals AMD and Qualcomm, Intel’s upcoming chips use chiplets – or tiles – for different components on the same chip. Intel has also touted the ability of its chips to run generic AI tools more efficiently on laptops.
Intel’s upcoming Meteor Lake processors launching on December 14 will replace the company’s Raptor Lake CPUs that were announced last year. The chip maker says Meteor Lake represents the biggest architectural change in the company’s processor design in four decades, and the top-of-the-line chip is called Intel Core Ultra – which appears to be what Intel has done in its Have switched to a new alias for High. end pc chip.
According to Intel, thanks to the use of chiplets, the new Meteor Lake processors will use less power and provide better performance. This suggests that the Meteor Lake CPUs may indeed be targeted at laptop users. The “Compute Tile” features performance and efficiency cores that are claimed to deliver better battery efficiency, as well as the company’s first integrated NPU AI engine.
The processor also has dedicated tiles for media and graphics, which are linked independently of the SoC. According to Intel, they can also be turned on and off independently. The “Graphics” tile on the processor is a “XE LPG” GPU equipped with 8 exe Provides support for core and ray tracing and XeSS – Intel’s technology for ‘upscale’ content.
“I/O Tile” Connectivity options on Meteor Lake processors include Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, native HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2.1, PCIe Gen 5, and Thunderbolt 4. It appears that customers will have to wait for a few more months. Intel introduced the first chips with support recently announced Thunderbolt 5 standard.
Intel has also promoted the ability of its Meteor Lake ‘Intel Core Ultra’ chips to run AI tasks using the built-in NPU. Chips are expected to be able to run similar generic AI tools chatgpt on their computer without sending data to the cloud service. The dedicated NPU should also provide better performance when using AI features that are expected to come to Windows in the future.
Pricing for Intel’s Meteor Lake processors has not been announced, but we can expect to hear more about these processors closer to the December 14 launch date, including which OEMs will be offering them to consumers. Who will be the first to bring out the new chips and will they include both laptops and desktop computers.
