We’ve got another glimpse of what Intel’s 14th generation processors will theoretically be the successors to the current 10th-generation Comet Lake CPUs (although even Intel’s internal roadmap for the future is likely to be rough on this point) .
As VideoCardz reported, the Lunar Lake processor was discovered in a Linux patch (by osuosl via Coelacanth’s Dream), and support for Gigabit Ethernet (network) drivers was introduced, leading to early development on these chips that may not be released until 2024. Indicates that it may have been started. Or maybe 2023). In other words, we are still a very long way.
As you might expect, there are no details about Lunar Lake at this point, but the second appearance after witnessing codenames in GPU drivers last November, along with other rumors about Intel’s future CPUs, provides at least the following information: Here’s how Team Blue’s lineup of processors might go on for years to come (of course, pay attention to all these speculations).
As mentioned, we are currently on the 10th generation of Comet Lake or Intel Core processors, and the next family, the 11th generation Rocket Lake, will be released at the end of March.
The Alder Lake 12th-generation chips are expected to launch in late 2021 and won’t give Rocket Lake much room to breathe and will probably arrive in September from what we’ve heard.
After that, the overall picture is a lot more blurry, but we’ve previously heard that the next CPU range will be Meteor Lake (finally moving to 7nm) and will probably arrive in 2022 or even 2023 (again, we’ll see Linux’s Intel Ethernet driver Was found through) password). In theory, it would be before the Lunar Lake product was released in 2023 or 2024.
Yet another leaker, AdoredTV, allows Intel to make Meteor Lake mobile-only (like the current Tiger Lake chip, Meteor Lake may not be the new 13th-gen desktop family, but it can only target laptops).
AdoredTV’s theory has the Raptor Lake, a new product from Alder Lake (maintaining and tweaking 10nm), planned by Intel in 2022, which is Intel’s 13th generation desktop. Then Lunar Lake could lead to the 14th generation (Meteor Lake will be released for laptops in 2022, year-end than Raptor Lake).
All of this, of course, is speculation based on vague rumors that arise from constantly changing factories. Whatever the case, at this point we don’t know anything about Lunar Lake and we don’t know when it will come true.
Given that Alder Lake’s rumors and teasers are now flying thick and fast, if Raptor Lake is really a new plan planned for next year, sooner or later you should start hearing more from the vines about its prospects.
One thing we know for sure is that there are big changes to our pipeline with Alder Lake. Alder Lake runs with an all-new design that features a performance and low power efficiency core (similar to ARM’s big.LITTLE technology). Rumors to emerge recently is that the low-power core is not only useful for laptop and battery conservation, but is actually attractive enough to make a meaningful contribution to the performance of desktop PCs. Potentially exciting time.
