There have been a number of rumors concerning the standing of Intel’s 14th Gen Meteor Lake CPUs and the TSMC 3nm course of node that may energy its tGPU and whereas Intel is denying all such rumors, it seems to be like leaker, OneRaichu, who has a completely flawless monitor file in relation to Intel leaks, is stating that 3nm GPUs is probably not used at the very least until fifteenth Gen Arrow Lake CPUs that launch in 2024.
Intel Rumored To Drop 3nm tGPU For Meteor Lake CPUs, Instead Going To Feature In fifteenth Gen Arrow Lake Chips
The rumors began pouring out when DigiTimes and PatternForce reported that one thing was very improper with Intel’s Meteor Lake CPUs, resulting in a possible delay. The studies cited the tGPU, which goes to make the most of the TSMC 3nm course of node, to be the principle wrongdoer behind the manufacturing woes.
According to my source, I simply to say Meteor lake should have no N3 components.🤔
It must be the story of Lunar and arrow. https://t.co/52yeLvBJSN

Intel clearly denied these rumors and adopted us with CEO, Pat Gelsinger’s, quote which states that the manufacturing of Meteor Lake CPUs which make the most of the “Intel 4” course of node is displaying good health in their very own and the client’s fabs. Now Meteor Lake CPUs aren’t completely primarily based on Intel’s personal 4 course of nodes. They make the most of a mixture of “Intel 4” and “TSMC 3nm” IPs with the Compute Tiles being fabricated by Intel itself and the tGPU tile being outsourced to TSMC for fabrication. Intel’s tGPU which stands for Tiled-GPU is predicted to supply as much as 192 Execution Units, a 2x improve over present iGPUs from Chipzilla however that is probably not the case.
As OneRaichi’s newest tweet states, the 14th Gen Meteor Lake CPUs might not have any TSMC N3 (3nm) half. If that is the case, then we are able to say goodbye to a 3nm tGPU and one other rumor began by @davidbepo reveals that the Meteor Lake Mobile SOC could also be reduce down considerably, going from 192 EUs on TSMC’s 3nm course of node to simply 128 EUs on TSMC’s 5nm course of node. This shall be a serious change if the rumors are true.
It appears that is true, cellular went 192 N3 to 128 N5 class

As for what occurs to Intel’s N3 take care of TSMC, it’s stated that Pat might have renegotiated the take care of TSMC and Intel might now make the most of tGPUs primarily based on the stated course of node on its next-gen chips akin to fifteenth Gen Arrow Lake and sixteenth Gen Lunar Lake.
Considering that sixteenth Gen Arrow Lake CPU lineup is predicted to launch in 2024, we’d have to attend greater than a yr to see TSMC’s 3nm in motion on Intel CPUs. This would additionally imply that we’d get a more recent GPU structure, almost certainly Battlemage (Xe2) or Celestial (Xe3) by the point the launch of the brand new chips. But that is only a rumor for now nonetheless, contemplating OneRaichu’s historical past of Intel leaks, this will likely as effectively be very legit.
