Rumor: Taiwan News claims that Intel has asked Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to make 3nm chips for future Meteor Lake processors. If true, it adds to the many nodes that Meteor Lake has included in the new "tiling" scheme.
Scheduled to be launched in 2023 from 14th generation Intel - Gen of Core (Meteor Lake) processors. 12th generation Alder Lake processors have been introduced, and 13th generation Raptor Lakes are scheduled to debut next year. p>
Intel will do just that. Click TSMC to produce 3nm graphics chips (GPU tiles) by the end of 2022, according to industry sources. Report says Intel is packing the tiles with Intel-made computing slabs (CPUs) to launch Meteor Lake in 2023. $INTC $TSM #semiconductors– Dan Nystedt (dnystedt) November 22, 2021
Meteor Lake separates its various components ( graphics, input/output, and computing) into separate chip sets that Intel calls tiles. In a new encapsulation method called Furus. Each uses a different knot process. The computing boxes use the "Intel 4" 7nm process. The Commercial Times reports that the I/O tiles use the N5 TSMC or its N4 process, while the GPU tiles use a 3nm process.
Last week, CNET used one of these boxes. Filmed in one of Intel's Meteor Lake. Test processors These will be Intel's first 7nm processors. AMD's latest competing Zen3 processors currently use the 7nm TSMC process, although the 10nm Alder Lakes perform better by benchmarks. p>
