Intel Meteor Lake-S Canceled or Not? Patches For Desktop Lineup Nonetheless Exhibiting Up In Linux

Intel Meteor Lake-S Desktop CPUs are rumored to have been canceled however the devs are nonetheless including assist for the chips inside Linux.

Intel Meteor Lake-S Desktop CPU Launch Nonetheless Clouded In Thriller As New Linux Patches Present Up

The newest assist patches for Intel’s Meteor Lake-S Desktop CPUs have been found by Phoronix who made the inference by a pin management change within the subsequent model of the Linux Kernel.

Assist for Meteor Lake-S is included in Intel’s Pinctrl driver. The adjustments have been made simply hours in the past and can be seen as soon as the brand new model (Linus 6.5) is launched. It’s reported that the brand new driver already supported different MTL fashions, and the addition of Lake-S demonstrates that the builders are working to assist the brand new chips.

The information for Intel Meteor Lake-S cancellation surfaced when Intel’s Shopper CPUs roadmap confirmed no indicators of MTL-S. Nevertheless, the adjustments made by Intel’s builders now present that Lake-S should still be in growth in some capability. One risk could possibly be that Meteor Lake-S will exist side-by-side with the lately revealed Raptor Lake refresh.

Diving into the small print for the MTL-S lineup, it was we beforehand revealed that Meteor Lake-S Desktop CPUs would characteristic as much as Core i5 SKUs & TDPs of 35-65W. The lineup would have been suitable with Intel’s new 800-series chipset platform that includes the LGA 1851 socket. You possibly can view under the attainable SKUs within the MTL-S vary primarily based on the knowledge gathered:

  • MTL-S 22 (6P + 16E) / 4 Xe Cores / 125W TDP
  • MTL-S 22 (6P + 16E) / 4 Xe Cores / 65W TDP
  • MTL-S 22 (6P + 16E) / 4 Xe Cores / 35W TDP
  • MTL-S 14 (6P + 8E) / 4 Xe Cores / 65WTDP
  • MTL-S 14 (6P + 8E) / 4 Xe Cores / 35WTDP

From what we have now managed to collect, the present Meteor Lake-S dies are being utilized by Intel and its companions to validate the Arrow Lake-S CPUs. It’s attainable that a couple of Meteor Lake-S chips might be disguised underneath upcoming mainstream and finances SKUs and provided to shoppers however nothing might be confirmed to this point. What is thought is that the MTL-P is headed to laptops later this fall.

The discharge date for Meteor Lake-S isn’t particular; nonetheless, in keeping with Intel’s leaked roadmap, we might anticipate it someplace in 2024 since Arrow Lake-S Desktop CPUs are anticipated to launch both by the tip of 2024 or early 2025.
