Intel 14th Gen Core “Meteor Lake-H/P/U” will introduce new low power consumption cores, Xe-LPG GPU architecture

Intel Metor Lake details leaked

Igor’sLAB has published a platform overview diagram for Intel’s 14th Gen Core mobile processor series.

The diagram lists the most important details about the 14th generation Core mobile processor series known as Meteor Lake (MTL). This is the first time we’ve seen all three product series: H, P and U, each representing a different power segment.

This is also the first time we’ve seen a third CPU core listed as LP E-Core (perhaps meaning Low Power Efficient Core). Rumors of ultra-low-power small cores have been circulating for some time, but this would mean that Intel is indeed implementing a third type of core in its architecture, an approach somewhat similar to the ARM architecture which also has 3 cores.

According @OneRaichu, the third core is implemented in the SoC tile, not in the compute tile like the P and E cores. Also, there are only two ultra-low-power cores. This may explain why they are not included in the total number of processor cores.

According to this new information, Meteor Lake-H and Meteor Lake-P will both feature up to 14 cores (listed as 6+8), while Meteor Lake-U will be limited to 12 cores. Additionally, the new architecture officially supports DDR5-5600 or LPDDR5/LPDDR5X-7467 memory. Up to 96 GB of memory will be supported for the DDR5 standard and 64 GB for the LPDDR5 type.

The slide also mentions a new Intel Xe-LPG graphics architecture, based on Xe², as discussed later in the docs. The integrated MTL H/P/U GPU would feature up to 128 execution units. What’s unclear is whether Xe² here means a next-gen gaming architecture known as Battlemage or a new low-power version of Alchemist.

For discrete GPUs, the Meteor Lake series will offer up to 8 lanes for the PCIe Gen5 interface, but this feature will be exclusive to Meteor Lake H (gaming) mobile processors. There is no mention of M.2 PCIe Gen5 support.
