What to look forward to: A new leak indicates that the upcoming Intel 4 technology node could be clocked more than 20 percent faster, consuming the same amount of power as the current Intel 7 node. If this figure applies to high frequencies as well, it could allow desktop processors PC to overcome the mark of 6 GHz.

BUT twitter user leaked several slides from Intel’s upcoming presentation at the IEEE VLSI 2022 Symposium, then deleted them a few hours later. Slides detail the new Intel Technology Node 4 and contain a mockup of the yet-to-be-released Meteor Lake-P processor. As a reminder, Intel plans to release 14th generation Meteor Lake processors in late 2023, following the release of Raptor Lake this year.

It is reported that the Intel 4 node will make extensive use of EUV lithography. The chipmaker also claims that it can achieve nearly twice the high-performance library region scaling compared to the Intel 7 process used in the current version. Alder Lake processors. The new assembly will also be compatible with EMIB and Foveros packaging technologies, the latter being used for Meteor Lake to provide a mosaic design. Specifically, Intel is aiming to boost clock speeds by at least 20 percent for the same power draw as the Intel 7, meaning we could see high-end desktop processors hitting 6GHz.

The leaked frame is a 14th generation Meteor Lake-P mobile chip compute tile. It has 6 P cores and 8 E cores and uses the previously mentioned Intel 4 node. The CPU will also have an I/O tile, a SOC tile, and a graphics tile, with the latter expected to use the TSMC N3 process. Previous Rumors indicate desktop processors will require the new LGA 1851 socket, not the LGA 2551.
