Intel processor has been moving very fast in recent years, because we all know that it's limited by architecture and technology, and it ca n' t completely reverse AMD. for a while
Intel has released the first member of the 11 generation core, tiger lake-u, for lightweight books. Next, there will be tiger lake-h for game books and rocket lake-s for desktop. The former two are 10nm, while the latter is 14nm.
The next step on the desktop is Alder Lake,12-generation Core, introducing a 10 nm process for the first time, and applying a large and small core hybrid architecture (Golden Cove+Gracemont) for the first time. Similar ultra-low power Lakefield, are expected to debut in the second half of 2021 and switch to a new LGA1700 encapsulation interface. With 600 series motherboard, do not rule out the first support for DDR5 memory.
What about later? namelyMeteor Lake( Meteor Lake),I heard the name a year agoIt is claimed thatIt will be Intel's first high-performance processor with 7Nm technology, covering servers, desktops and notebooks. It is expected to come out in 2022-2023. It will adopt a new CPU architecture, and still be a hybrid design of large and small cores. One is ocean cove, the other is gracemont.
Now, Intel engineers have submitted a special patch to the Linux 5.10 kernel, adding initial support for meteor lake for the first time, mainly involving network card driver.
More information is not available, but it is clear that Intel have started the development of Meteor Lake platforms, and in fact, not long ago, Intel have started recruiting software engineers for the new platform.
According to the time node,Meteor lake is bound to face the impact of AMD zen4 architecture, which will use TSMC's 5nm process.
Of course, the process processes of Intel and TSMC can't be compared with the figures alone, but it can be expected that zen4 will definitely be very powerful. With the bonus of TSMC technology, Intel's pressure can still be imagined, and it will not be very good in the next few years.
