On June 3, Intel announced that it will hold the nbsp;Innovation 2023 conference from September 19 to 20 this year, which is also expected to release a number of blockbuster products, the most attractive of which is the 14-generation core processor.
Intel's innovation conference is not strictly a product launch, but a resurrection of the previously cancelled IDF forum, mainly for developers, architects, product managers, media and enthusiasts.
But at last year's Innovation 2022 conference, Intel CEO Kissinger delivered a keynote speechAnd released 13-generation core Lake processors, so this year's conference is expected to release 14-generation core processors.
However, the desktop version and mobile version of the 14th generation Core are not the same. The mobile version is Meteor Lake Meteor Lake, the first Intel 4 process, and uses 3D Foveros packaging technology. CPU, GPU and IO units are integrated and packaged together using different processes, with at least 5 IP cores and 4 processes.
However, the Intel 4 process used in Meteor Lake is still the first generation EUV process, and the energy efficiency is good, but the high frequency performance still needs to be optimized, so it can not be used on the desktop platform for the time being.
On the desktop platform is the Raptor Lake Refresh series, that is, last year's 13th generation core changed its vest.Increase CPU frequency, increase memory frequency, LGA1700 slot unchanged, replace the current 13-generation core processor.
In addition to the above two processors, this innovation conference is also likely to announce the news of the next generation of Arc graphics cards, code name & ldquo;Battlemage” (combat mage), upgrade the second generation Xe HPG architecture, the specific specifications are unknown, but it is rumored that the performance can be comparable to the RTX 4080 level, a big improvement.
& the Arc graphics card of the ldquo;Battlemage” family will be available in 2024 and the manufacturing process will be upgraded to TSMC 4nm.
