Intel’s Next-Gen Processors : Essential Information

Intel Tech Tour, a series of deep-dive presentations on Meteor Lake for industry and the press

Intel announced a dramatic rebranding of its Core CPUs, removing the generation numbers (12th Gen Core, 13th Gen Core, etc.)

This CPU architecture is behind Intel’s first generation of Core Ultra processors, which may eliminate the “i” for simplicity

This new 7-nanometer (7nm) manufacturing technique employs extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography to make ever-smaller chips

Intel’s latest packaging method, Foveros, employs 3D stacking to merge “chiplets” into a chip

Binning produces the CPU power tiers, which will likely be called Intel 9, Intel 7, Intel 5, etc

This new tile-based design is disaggregated. Instead of building a single monolithic chip, the CPU may be made from smaller
