Intel processors have been pushing incredibly fast in recent times, with rapid improvements in released product specifications and frequent exposure of unresolted products, both official and unofficial. In the desktop market, officials have confirmed that the 11th-generation Rocket Lake will be released in March next year, with detailed architectures announced ahead of schedule, with the exception of the continued 14nm process.
We’ll see the Crypress Cove CPU architecture, up to 8 core 16 threads, IPC boost of more than 10%, 12 generation Xe architecture core display, DDR4-3200 memory, PCIe 4.0 bus, USB 3.2 interface, DLBoost deep learning acceleration instruction set, 500 series chipset, LGA1200 package interface.
Then there’s 12th-generation Core Alder Lake, which officially confirmed the first introduction of a large-and-small nuclear hybrid architecture design, and the first 10nm process on the desktop, rumored to switch to a new LGA1700 interface, and the first support for DDR5 memory, PCIe 5.0 bus on the desktop side, and the chipset will naturally upgrade the 500 series to be released as soon as the end of next year.
Then there’s the 13th-generation Core Meteor Lake, which is rumoured to have an updated Golden Cove CPU architecture that jumps straight to the 7nm process.
Today we saw “Lunar Lake” (LNL/Moon Lake) for the first time, and the sequence is naturally 14th-generation Desktop Core, the first integration of 13th-generation nuclear display, natural or Xe architecture.

More information is not known, speculation will continue the 7nm process, LGA1700 package interface, DDR5 memory, PCIe 5.0 bus, and the supporting chipset at least 700 series, perhaps 800 series.
As for the release date, it’s 2023…
