Recently, a netizen discovered that the support list for Microsoft’s Windows 11 22H2/23H2 operating systems has unveiled Intel’s upcoming Core Ultra series processors lineup, including the highly anticipated Meteor Lake.

Given that the Core Ultra series processors are set to hit the market soon, it’s unsurprising that Microsoft is preparing its Windows operating system in advance. This Core Ultra series features 11 models, including:

  • – Core Ultra 5 125H
  • – Core Ultra 5 125U
  • – Core Ultra 5 134U
  • – Core Ultra 5 135H
  • – Core Ultra 5 135U
  • – Core Ultra 7 155H
  • – Core Ultra 7 155U
  • – Core Ultra 7 164U
  • – Core Ultra 7 165H
  • – Core Ultra 7 165U
  • – Core Ultra 9 185H

Meteor Lake processors utilize a disaggregated module architecture, comprising four independent modules connected through Foveros 3D packaging technology. Their compute module is crafted using Intel’s 4 process technology for the first time, featuring P-Cores based on the Redwood Cove architecture and E-Cores based on the Crestmont architecture. The integrated graphics adopt a new Alchemist Xe-LPG design, and the newly introduced NPU is tailored to efficiently handle diverse AI tasks.

The Core Ultra series processors offer up to 6P+8E+2LPE configurations, totaling 22 threads, with a top speed of 5.1GHz. They support LPDDR5/5x-7467 and DDR5-5600 memory, with the former maxing out at 64GB and the latter now increased to a capacity of 96GB. The processors themselves provide 8 PCIe 5.0 lanes and 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, with 8 of the PCIe 5.0 lanes dedicated to graphics cards, 12 PCIe 4.0 lanes allocated to SSDs, and the remaining 8 PCIe 4.0 lanes available for flexible distribution. In terms of connectivity, they support DP 2.1 and HDMI 2.1 video outputs, offer up to 4 Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2 USB 3 ports, and 10 USB 2 ports, along with two SATA 3.0 ports, ensuring a wealth of interface options.
