Intel confirms Meteor Lake-S uses LGA 1851 socket and support LPDDR5X-7500 memory

Intel’s next-generation Meteor Lake-S will use the second-generation hybrid architecture technology, P-Core will enable the Redwood Cove architecture to replace the current Golden Cove architecture, and E-Core will switch to the Crestmont architecture to replace the Gracemont architecture. It adopts a Tile design, and there will be four different modules, namely the computing module, SOC module, I/O module, and GPU module. These modules can be manufactured using different process nodes, then stacked, and then interconnected with Foveros using EMIB technology packaging technology.

According to VideoCardz, recently, information about Meteor Lake-S was found in the hidden document list code on Intel’s official website, which will use LGA 1851 slots and support LPDDR5X-7500 memory. It is rumored that the new socket will be used by at least two generations of desktop processors, the size is similar to the existing LGA1700 socket, and more pins will be provided to increase support for new functions.

It is understood that in the computing module, SOC module, I/O module, and GPU module of Meteor Lake-S, the computing module adopts Intel 4 process, and the SOC module and I/O module adopt TSMC 6nm process. The GPU module uses TSMC’s 5nm process. According to past statements, the GPU of Meteor Lake-S will be the Xe-LPG architecture to replace the Xe-LP architecture since the 11th generation Core, which can meet the requirements of DirectX 12 Ultimate. Since the iGPU has at least 4 Xe cores, it means that there will be 64 EUs, which is two fewer Xe cores than the lowest-end Arc A310 graphics card.
