Intel has successfully launched Meteor Lake, the first SoC on a chipset, with implementation scheduled for 2023

Along with the release of last quarter's financial results, where Intel performed well in the server segment, but already worse in the client segment, interesting details were revealed regarding the development of upcoming processors.Michelle Johnston Holthaus, executive vice president and senior manager of Client Computing Group at Intel, in her tweet reported the successful operational launch of Meteor Lake.
In May 2021, Intel announced the pilot production of Meteor Lake compute tiles using the Intel 4 (7nm) process technology.
Which marked the end of the design phase and the transition to production of the first chips.
The working launch of the SoC is the next step toward the final product.
Meteor Lake consists of a compute tile with CPU cores, an I/O tile, an SoC tile and a GFX tile.
This is the first time all components have successfully worked together on a single substrate.
As Intel points out, Windows, Linux and Chrome OS are already running on Meteor Lake.For Intel, the new processors will be an important step.
On the one hand, Intel is moving to composite processors, which are chipsets.
On the other hand, Intel has successfully launched the Intel 4 processor process, which is very important for the company.
Recall that this process has a very large share of extreme ultraviolet EUV.
The launch of SoC was planned for the second quarter of 2022, so everything goes according to plan.
The processors will hit the market in 2023.However, the final CPU samples are still a long way off.
Intel will be making various optimizations to make sure Meteor Lake comes out in 2023 at its best.
As we can see, Intel is successfully following through on its goals.
When announcing the D1X plant expansion, Intel also noted that the Intel 18A process may be introduced sooner.
It looks like the Intel 4 tech process is already ready for mass production in the second half of 2022.
In the coming years we will see if Intel's ambitious plans will come true and if the company will be able to regain its leadership in semiconductor manufacturing from 2025.Intel also warned that in 2023 the demand for raw materials for semiconductor manufacturing and exposure equipment will remain very high, the supply will not cover it.
The situation will not improve until 2024.
Therefore, it is difficult to say whether Intel will be able to saturate the processor market.
But since Intel is an IDM (Integrated Device Manufacturer) and has its own facilities, the company sees a significant advantage over its competitor.
However, all this is only true if the company manages to introduce new technological processes along with the development of new chips.
In the consumer segment, Intel will try to do its best to make sure there is no shortage of chips.
But Intel's large customers and the corporate segment will have to tighten their belts for now.
