One of the Meteor Lake crystals was shown under a microscope - small Crestmont cores were pictured

Journalists from Le Comptoir du Hardware attended the Intel Vision 2022 conference, where they got a chance to photograph the layout of one of the Intel Core 14th generation processor chips, codenamed Meteor Lake.
The electron microscope lens caught the part with energy-efficient E-core computing Crestmont.Image source: Le Comptoir du HardwareThe first photos of Meteor Lake mobile processors were published earlier today.
They will use several chipsets at once based on different technological processes.
The Meteor Lake chips will use a hybrid architecture of large and small cores similar to the current Alder Lake chips.
At the same time, mobile Core 14-generation processors will be available in two types: one will have a standard package, while the other will be significantly more compact.
The former will be used in regular and gaming laptops, or in mini-PCs.
The second is likely to find application in ultra-thin laptops.Crystal photo, obtained by the French technology publication, very likely shows the chiplet second, compact, variant Meteor Lake.
According to rumors, these processors will offer two efficient Redwood Cove cores and up to eight energy-efficient Crestmont cores.
The embedded graphics and interface blocks are not in the photo.
They are part of other Meteor Lake chipsets that will eventually be combined on the same substrate using Intel's second-generation Foveros packaging technology.The chipset caught in the photo shows Crestmont cores based on the Intel 4 (7nm) process technology.
According to Intel, the new node will provide over 20 percent performance gains per watt over Intel's 7 (10nm) process technology.
An explanation of the image was posted by a Twitter user.
The photo shows the location of L1/L2/L3 cache blocks, as well as one of the Crestmont small core clusters.

In other words, the series will feature a wide variety of models.
Chips in the new series are expected in the second half of 2023.
