Intel Meteor Lake Gaming CPU Packages Appear at Vision Event
Raptor Lake hasn’t arrived yet, but that hasn’t stopped Intel’s Meteor Lake gaming processor packages from showing up at the company’s Vision event. The chips shown give us a look at the design of the 14th Gen processor, including a smaller package that aims to bring the technology to future portable gaming PC devices.
Shared by PC Watch, the Intel Meteor Lake processor packages include normal and high-density designs, both of which feature the same configuration. Naturally, the larger variant will cater to devices like gaming laptops, while the second is for smaller machines. On closer inspection, it looks like Meteor Lake will be ditching the PCH (Platform Controller Hub) dies, as it apparently merges them into four dies instead.
Intel’s new approach to processor design should facilitate flexibility, as it will allow the company to swap configurations to create new variants. The tech giant hasn’t unveiled any Meteor Lake desktop chips, but it has previously confirmed the arrival of full-scale 125W models (via Wccftech).
You could say Intel is getting ahead of itself, especially as Alder Lake is still battling to sit on the throne of the best gaming processor. Still, it’s exciting to see what the company is gearing up when it comes to next-gen processor technology, even if we have to wait until 2023. The fact that Raptor Lake is 40% faster than its predecessor means Meteor Lake will likely feature monstrous capabilities, meaning that an AMD Zen 4 successor is ready to fight.
