Intel says Alder Lake shipments have exceeded 35 million, and denies Meteor Lake is delayed to 2024
Intel just had a tough quarter. Revenue fell 22% due to the decline in PC purchases. If you compare the performance of the same period last year, Intel’s profit in the second quarter of 2022 fell by 109%, a decrease of about $5 billion. In worse news, TrendForce said the release of Meteor Lake was delayed until the end of 2023, and Intel canceled most of its 3nm orders at TSMC in 2023, keeping only a small number of orders for engineering verification, which means that the actual release time may be delayed until 2024.
In response to a series of rumors in the market, Intel spokesman Thomas Hannaford contacted The Verge for clarification, saying that this news is not true, and Meteor Lake will be released and shipped in 2023 for consumers to buy. Intel said Alder Lake has shipped more than 35 million units to date. At least on the surface, after Intel launched Alder Lake, it stopped the downward trend of the consumer market and was in a state evenly matched with AMD. Intel will launch Raptor Lake later this year to take on the challenge of rivals’ new Zen 4-architecture processors.
