Intel Lunar Lake-S in 2023-2024This news post is about what lies beyond Alder Lake-S. A new Linux kernel patch from Intel reveals the firm is already laying the groundwork for Lunar Lake, a future chip that may be launched as the 14th Gen Core. VideoCardz speculates Lunar Lake-S could be the third and final chip on Intel's LGA1700 socket. Expect this one in 2023-2024 at the earliest. Not much is known but VideoCardz speculates it will feature Gen13 Xe-based graphics, DDR5 support, and PCI Express 5.0.
But first we get Raptor Lake-S and Meteor Lake-SThe site also has some information about the other desktop processors Intel is planning. First up, VideoCardz writes some leakers still speculate Intel will launch a Raptor Lake-S processor series in 2022. So far, this model hasn't popped up yet in drivers or Linux patches. Raptor Lake-S is described as an Alder Lake-S refresh, it may still be 12th Gen Core, but this is all a bit more speculative. Raptor Lake-S will reportedly still be made on 10nm Enhanced SuperFin, the same as Alder Lake-S, and will largely share the same feature set.
Meteor Lake-S is another chip on Intel's current roadmap -- this product is believed to be in the works for a 2022-2023 introduction. According to the rumor mill, Meteor Lake-S will be the first desktop processor from Intel to be made on a 7nm node with EUV lithography.
This would be the first 13th Gen Core desktop processor. It's expected to feature Redwood Cove high-performance cores, it's unknown if the energy-efficient cores will still be Gracemont-based. Other than this, Meteor Lake-S is expected to adopt Gen 12.7 Xe-based graphics.
As always, take this with a grain of salt and remember that long-term roadmaps change quite often.
