Intel has successfully developed a new CPU, Meteor Lake, to realize high-speed, power-saving AI processing on PCs.
🟦 Intel announces new CPU “Meteor Lake”
Intel has developed a new CPU to improve the ability of AI to run faster and more power-efficient on PCs. The new CPU is called Meteor Lake and will be available in December 2023. The new product uses “Intel 12”, which is said to have a circuit line width equivalent to the 7nm process.
🟦 State-of-the-art 3D packaging technology
The new CPUs make AI available on PCs without relying on data centers, making it particularly suitable for image processing, text summarization, etc. This allows AI to be used even in places where internet connectivity is limited.
Meteor Lake combines the CPU of a personal computer with an image processing semiconductor (GPU) and a function dedicated to AI processing (NPU) to improve the processing speed of AI tasks. It also uses Foveros, a cutting-edge 3D packaging technology, to make Intel’s first consumer chiplet processor.
Intel has successfully developed a new CPU, Meteor Lake, to realize high-speed, power-saving AI processing on PCs. Adopting the Intel 7 4nm process technology, it will be Intel’s first consumer processor for chiplets.
Intel is chasing the lag in process technology compared to TSMC and Samsung and is actively investing in developing five new processes in four years. At the same time, in order to cope with process delays, we are also focusing on the in-house development of advanced packages for downstream processes. This can be described as a strategy to take advantage of adversity.
