Only yesterday we told you about Intel’s roadmap for 2023, which the Santa Clara giant should have revealed next week with a dedicated webinar. Unfortunately for Intel though, the The company’s CPU roadmap has been leaked on the web in the past few hours.
You can take a look at the Intel future projects calendar in the image at the bottom of this news, which was shared by the well-known leaker HXL on Twitter. The roadmap confirms the arrival of Intel Raptor Lake-S CPUs refreshed throughout 2023, as well as that of Sapphire Rapids workstation processors in the first half of next year, possibly as early as the first quarter of 2023.
In fact, this also means that i Raptor Lake refreshes will replace Meteor Lakethe fourteenth generation of Intel CPUs: at this point, Intel Meteor Lake processors are likely to debut in late 2024, also considering that the Raptor Lake refreshes will be delayed until the third quarter of 2023.
Unfortunately, the roadmap it does not reveal the specifications of the processors mid-jan from Intel, although refreshes usually bring with them minor improvements in CPU clock frequency and in the power delivery of the components. Additionally, the new CPUs will continue to use current-generation Z790, W680, and Q670 motherboards.
On the server side, however, during Q1 2023 Sapphire Rapids CPUs will debut 64L and 112L, both based on the Intel W790 chipset. With the latest processors for Intel servers, datacenters and workstations launched between 2019 and 2020, it seems therefore that the new generation of Xeon CPUs will already arrive at CES 2023.
