Intel ON in San Francisco on October 27-28The chip giant is hosting its first Intel ON event on October 27-28, 2021. This will take place virtually and physically in San Francisco.
The first event in the new Intel ON series, Intel Innovation, will be taking place virtually and in-person, October 27-28, 2021. Our new technical conference will focus on the latest technologies to deliver AI, 5G, Edge, Cloud and PC solutions with speed and real-world scale.Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger called it a "fully hybrid" event. Presumably not only because it's digital and in-person, but also because it could be the launch even of Alder Lake. The latter is Intel's first mainstream processor with a hybrid design, it has high-performance and high-efficiency cores.
Alder Lake will be made using Intel's 7 node, which is the new name for 10nm Enhanced SuperFin. Compared with the 10nm node used for Tiger Lake, the Intel 7 node promises 10-15 percent higher performance per Watt.
Intel Meteor Lake is 5W to 125WBesides a rendered shot of the Alder Lake die, Intel also shared a picture of how Meteor Lake will look like. Meteor Lake uses Intel 4 (aka 7nm), this process technology is projected to offer a 20 percent higher performance per Watt when compared with Intel 7. Intel 4 will make full use of EUV.
Meteor Lake will use Intel's second-generation Foveros packaging technology for chip stacking. The processor will consist of three parts; a compute die, a GPU die, and an SoC. The GPU die will offer 96 to 192 execution units. For comparison, the current Tiger Lake processors from Intel have a maximum of 96 EUs. Intel also revealed Meteor Lake will come in 5W to 125W TDP variations.
