Intel Debunks Cancellation Rumors Of Meteor Lake Desktop Processors

Intel’s upcoming Meteor Lake CPUs is set to be the very first generation to bear the Core Ultra name – which is set to launch in December 14th, 2023. However, the rumors has claimed for a long time that this will be a mobile-only generation a la Tiger Lake (11th Gen mobile), and Team Blue will instead rely on Arrow Lake to supersede the upcoming Raptor Lake Refresh chips in the future.

In an interview with PCWorld, Intel EVP & GM of Client Computing Group (CCG) Michelle Johnston Holthaus has confirmed that Meteor Lake will indeed arrive to desktop systems at a later date in 2024.

Q: Let me ask you, is there gonna be a Meteor Lake desktop?

A: Desktop will come in 2024.

Q: So you are confirming Meteor Lake desktop?

A: Yes.

Q: Whether or not you guys are returning to an era where there is gonna be a processor family for mobile and a separate processor family for desktop but doesn’t sound like that’s the case.

A: That is not the case. I want one processor family top to bottom for both segments, doesn’t everybody?

It’s one of the uncommon times where leakers and rumor mill has caught off guard in the leaky nature of the processor industry, but in any case – Intel has officially confirmed that Meteor Lake desktop is a thing, and they are well committed into maintaining a single microarchitecture for all chips in a single generation. It’s worth nothing that the last time Intel split the microarchitecture was during the 11th Gen – where mobile chips use 10nm+ Tiger Lake, while desktop at the time was using the geriatric 14nm-powered Rocket Lake with “backported” design.

In any case, if the Meteor Lake desktop is launching next year, that means it’ll likely be a short generation as another future microarchitecture, Arrow Lake, is also launching in 2024 per Intel’s latest roadmap. It’s unclear if Intel may consider segmenting both together with the Meteor Lake focusing on low-power desktop devices (similar to AMD Ryzen G-series) while Arrow Lake maintains its position for mainstream desktops, for example.
