Intel exhibited the 14th-generation Core processor Meteor Lake at the Vision 2022 conference. This processor will be produced using the Intel 4 process. Now Intel’s consumer-grade processors basically have only one chip, and Meteor Lake will switch to small chip packages. We have reported its package photos earlier. Obviously, there are four small chips on it, namely CPU Tile, GFX Tile, SOC Tile, and IO Tile.
Comptoir-hardware. captured the CPU Tile of Meteor Lake. This small chip should be used in Meteor Lake for ultra-low-power devices, with two P-Cores and 8 E-Cores, which use the Redwood Cove architecture and the Crestmont architecture respectively. The graphics part and I/O part are obviously missing on this chip, and these things are handed over to other small chips. In other words, this chip is similar to the CCD on the AMD Ryzen processor.
@Locuza_ tagged this CPU Tile photo, Redwood Cove as P-Core looks like an evolutionary version of Golden Cove, it seems to have 2MB of L2 cache, while on Golden Cove it is 1.25MB, as, for the L2 cache of E-Core’s Crestmont, it may be 2MB or 4MB, and the L3 cache of each module is about 2.5MB to 3MB. The shared L3 cache of the entire CPU Tile is 10 to 12MB, and these cores are still interconnected by a ring bus.
It is expected that Meteor Lake will be released in 2023, and it is more likely to launch a low-power mobile version first, and then gradually roll out to the entire consumer platform.
