The launch is the Core Ultra 100 “The launch is the Core Ultra 100 Meteor Lake series

Instead of Core i, Intel launched the first processor series named Core Ultra. They launched a total of 11 processors in the 14th Gen Core Ultra 100 series for mobile platforms under Mateor Lake. Let’s take a look at the processor name, specifications, features, and performance.

Intel Mateor Lake Core Ultra 100 Series Architecture

Intel has brought several architectural innovations to the Core Ultra series. For the first time, they have used TSMC chips in their processors. Also, Intel has used a new technology which they named Intel Foveros. In this technology, multiple dies are inserted vertically, one above the other. For ease of understanding, imagine the entire processor as a building, comparing each die to a floor. This system has several advantages, it is possible to make the processors compact, and it is possible to get more processing power in the same space, which is very important and effective for laptops, tablets or mobiles. The processors are using Redwood Cove’s P Core and Crestmont Cove’s E Core.

Secondly, another advantage of Foveros Technology is its power efficiency, with devices of this design getting more performance using less power. 2.5x AI processing efficiency from Core i7 1370P, these processors will use 38% less power in zoom video calls.

Anyway, with the four smaller dies plus the larger CPU die, there are a total of 5 dies in these Intel processors, each with a different name. Intel 4 Architecture as CPU die, Intel 16 Architecture 3D Foveros Base die and GPU, TSMC N5, N6 as SoC die, and TSMC N6 Die as the latest LP or SoC Die.

Notable features

Not to mention another addition, there is a separate NPU or Neural Processing Unit (2 each Gen3 NPU) for AI Processing. Intel claims up to 70% more performance in AI. There is support for Thunderbolt 4, and Wifi 7. These processors are the first lineup to come in Intel 4 architecture. Intel claims the processors to be up to 11% faster than Ryzen in Ultrathin Form Factor.

  • Up to four Thunderbolt 4 ports support.
  • DisplayPort 2.1 USB C and HDMI 2.1
  • Bluetooth 5, 3 PCIe4 SSDs, and 12 PCIe4 lanes.
  • 8 PCIe5 lanes.
  • 10 USB2, 2 USB3 ports.
  • DDR5 5600 MHz and LPDDR5/5X 7467 MHz RAM support.
  • The GPU also features XeSS with DX12 Ultimate, Advanced Media Engine, and DP4A Engine for AI Acceleration.

All processor models and specifications at a glance:

U or the power saving variant has 6 and H or high performance variant has 5 processors. The lineup has a minimum of 12 cores, 14 threads and a maximum of 16 cores and 22 threads. Again, 5 of the 11 processors belong to the Ultra 5 subfamily, while the remaining processors include one Ultra 9 H and 5 Ultra 7 U/H processors.

Performance:

Intel has shown many performance slides in AI, GPU and CPU 3 sections. Ultra 5 165H is 12% ahead of AMD 7840U with same amount of power in single thread. This difference is 11% in multicore or multithread. At the same time, the difference in performance of the processor from the i7 1370P is 9%.

According to Intel’s slide, these new processors will be well ahead of AMD processors in productive applications like Procyon, Premiere Pro and Lightroom.

This new processor has managed to develop a performance difference of minimum 9% to maximum 100% from the 13th Gen Intel core i7 processor in gaming at 28 watts. On average, the Ultra 7 155H is on par with the AMD 7840U, but the Ultra 7 165H is ahead by 5%. In addition to raw performance, Intel has also demonstrated the performance of XeSS Upscaling.

Intel has also tried to give some idea of ​​how their processor can work in AI Engine.
