Gregory Bryant has recently announced that Intel has taped in its 7nm Meteor Lake CPU architecture, which means that the designing phase has been completed. From now on, Intel will start working on the production phases, leading to the release of Intel's first 7nm processor.
The executive VP and GM of the client computing group at Intel, Gregory Bryant, shared the news on Twitter, congratulating the whole team behind the process of design the upcoming Meteor Lake architecture.
Great way to start the week! We are taping in our 7nm Meteor Lake compute tile right now.

Not much is known about Meteor Lake, but it's expected to be Intel's 14th generation of Core series processors. This means that it should succeed Raptor Lake, the successor of Alder Lake. Rumoured to release in 2023, Meteor Lake is expected to be the last architecture using the upcoming LGA1700 socket.
Meteor Lake is set to be Intel's first architecture based on the upcoming 7nm Enhanced SuperFin node. Like Alder Lake and Raptor Lake, it should also feature a hybrid core design and support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory.
KitGuru says: Intel looks quite serious in accelerating the development of new processor architectures. If the rumours are true, Intel should release a new CPU architecture each year over the next three years. Whether it will deliver them on time to compete with AMD counterparts or not remains to be seen.
