Official Leak Confirms Meteor Lake Will Feature A New Socket & Support For LPDDR5X-7500 Memory

A new leak has confirmed that Intel’s upcoming Meteor Lake will require a new socket (LGA 1851). This leak comes from none other than Intel itself. It is also confirmed that the 14th generation of Intel CPUs will support LPDDR5X-7500 memory.

New Socket

Thanks to a web sitemap at Intel, the titles for a few confidential and unreleased products have surfaced. The data we are about to see is not publicly available in the form of an actual webpage but rather as hidden documents.

Videocardz compiled the important facts and figures in an easy-to-read format. It is clear from this information that Meteor Lake will arrive with support for the LGA1851 socket. This socket surprisingly is no different than its predecessor. Though, it is not clear why an upgrade was necessary. The packaged ‘Foveros‘ design with Meteor Lake may possibly explain this transition.

Furthermore, the 15th-gen Arrow Lake CPUs may also support the same platform. After that, Lunar Lake (16th gen) will only arrive for the mobile segment. The desktop-oriented 16th generation is still unknown and will most likely be equipped with the Panther Cove (Performance Core) microarchitecture. 

Fabrication-wise, Meteor Lake will be built on the Intel 4 process. The refined Intel 3 node is reserved for Intel’s Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest processors.
