there won’t be any for all PCs

After a long phase obliging Intel to stick to 14 nm engraving, the migration to 10 nm materialized with the Alder Lake and Raptor Lake series (12 and 13th generation Intel Core).

Trying to catch up on its competitors, the Santa Clara giant must then switch to 7 nm engraving with the launch of the series. Meteor Lake (14th generation Intel Core) planned for the end of 2023 and especially 2024.

But over time and leaks, it appears that the commercialization of the first Intel processors engraved in 7nm will be rather smooth. New information from leaker Raichu confirms what was expected: Meteor Lake will not be offered only in version for laptops and ultraportables but not for desktop PCs.

Arrow Lake for 7 nm engraving on S series?

The Meteor Lake-S processors would indeed have been abandoned and this may be the reason for the rumor of an intermediate Raptor Lake Refresh series which would make the connection while waiting for the next generation, Arrow Lake (Intel Core 15th generation) in 2024.

But even in this case, the same Raichu does not have good news: Arrow Lake processors would not go no higher than the 14 core / 20 thread version (6 powerful cores + 8 economical cores), the 24 core / 32 thread (8+16) model having apparently been cancelled, where current Raptor Lake processors (and probably future Raptor Lake Refresh) climb well up to 24 hearts.

Meteor Lake, a smooth transition to 7 nm?

Even with the extra performance brought by the finer engraving, will that be enough to overshadow the return to 14 cores of the next generation Intel processors next year?

The range of Intel processors could therefore soon go through a mix of CPUs engraved in 7 nm for laptop PCs (Meteor Lake), Raptor Lake Refresh processors engraved in 10 nm and then processors in 7 nm for Arrow Lake desktop PCs but with fewer hearts than expected. Not easy.
