Intel Core Ultra 7 1002H Processor Spotted
Not long ago, a new product dubbed the “Core Ultra 7 1003H” materialized within the test database of “Ashes of the Singularity,” seemingly substantiating the market rumors that Intel intends to alter the naming convention of the long-standing Core series processors. The current nomenclature’s “i” is potentially set to be superseded by “Ultra,” a revelation subsequently validated by Bernard Fernandes, the executive responsible for Intel’s related business operations.
Recently, Twitter user @InstLatX64 uncovered a processor named the Intel Core Ultra 7 1002H while running a suite of benchmark tests in PugetBench. This processor boasts 16 cores and 22 threads, which include 6 performance cores, 8 power-efficient cores, and 2 cores located within the SoC Die, with a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a TDP of 28W.
In terms of specifications, the “Core Ultra 7 1002H” aligns with the Meteor Lake-P chip exhibited by Intel at Computex 2023. However, the clock may vary due to it being an engineering sample, and it may not necessarily mirror the final retail version. The Core Ultra 7 1003H and Core Ultra 7 1002H share identical core/thread counts and their variance most likely derives from clock.
Based on prior leaks, the “Ultra” appended to “Core” is optional and only applicable to newer models, as detailed in the following modifications:
Core i9 1**00H→Core (Ultra) 9 1*0*H
Core i7 1**00H→Core (Ultra) 7 1*0*H
Core i5 1**00H→Core (Ultra) 5 1*0*H
Core i3 1**00H→Core (Ultra) 3 1*0*H
Last year, AMD also announced changes to the naming method for its mobile processors but retained the existing convention for desktop processors. Intel’s rumoured modifications this time around purportedly extend beyond just the mobile platform, as changes to the desktop platform may well be on the horizon.
