Later this year Intel will launch its first 10nm desktop platform but the firm is already hyping up the 7nm generation. Via a tweet, the chip giant announces that the 7nm compute tile of Meteor Lake has taped in. A tape-in is the final step before the manufacturing, it means the compute tile is ready for integration within the Meteor Lake SoC.

Inching closer to a 2023 launch

Of course, this doesn't mean Meteor Lake is coming anytime soon. Meteor Lake-S is expected to hit the market in 2023 and is believed to use the same LGA1700 socket that will debut with Alder Lake-S.

Alder Lake-S is expected towards the end of this year, it will be the first 10nm desktop processor from Intel. Next year, the company is expected to follow up with Raptor Lake-S, an enhanced version of Alder Lake-S. Meteor Lake-S should follow in 2023 but the exact feature set is still a bit of a mystery. It's rumored that Meteor Lake-S will get Redwood Cove cores in combination with next-generation energy-efficient cores. The integrated graphics part will also get an upgrade. Other than this, the chip will stick with DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0 support. Meteor Lake-S is believed to be the 14th Gen Core from Intel.
