Intel reveals details about Meteor Lake, Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake processors

Intel during the Hot Chips 34 conference shared fresh details about the 3D chip packaging technology that will be used in Meteor Lake, Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake processors and will allow combining several chips produced by different process technologies on one substrate.
At the same time, the manufacturer has dispelled several earlier rumors about the Meteor Lake series of chips.Image source: IntelThe integrated graphics of Meteor Lake processors will not be produced using the 3nm process technology, as claimed in some rumors.
According to Intel, the graphics of these processors have been designed with the 5nm process technology in mind.
Meteor Lake processors will consist of multiple crystals (tiles) interconnected using Foveros bus.Intel shared a block diagram (image above) of consumer Meteor Lake with six performance and eight power-efficient cores.
These cores will be part of the computing chiplet, which will be produced according to the Intel 4 (7nm) process technology.
The company did not specify it, but the block diagram shown most likely belongs to the processor of the future Meteor Lake-P mobile series for compact gaming and fairly productive working notebooks.Earlier Intel showed another Meteor Lake computing chipset, presumably belonging to one of the Meteor Lake-U mobile processor models, which have two high performance and up to eight power efficient cores and will probably be equipped with less powerful integrated graphics.
Intel has clarified that the SoC and I/O (IO) tiles of Meteor Lake processors will be manufactured using TSMC N6 (6nm) process technology, while the embedded graphics chip will use TSMC N5 (5nm) technology.
At the same time, all chipsets will be combined by Foveros chip with Intel's 22nm process technology.

Chips in these series will be introduced in both mobile and desktop segments.Image source: VideoCardzThe company added that the Lunar Lake processor series, which will come after Arrow Lake, are energy-efficient solutions with a nominal TDP of 15 watts, which very likely indicates their mobile nature.
Whether there are plans to release Lunar Lake models with higher TDP, the company has not yet said.
