In order to prepare the consumer audience for the next change in the names of consumer processor models, Intel had to admit yesterday that the latest carrier of the “Core ix” series indices was the Raptor Lake Refresh family, introduced the day before. With the launch of the Meteor Lake processors later this year, a new model naming scheme will be used.
As the resource explains VideoCardz Referring to an Intel memo, the new naming system appends the combination “Intel Core” or “Intel Core Ultra” with a three- or four-digit digital index with a letter at the end. For example, Intel Core 1002H or Intel Core Ultra 100H processors may appear. As you can imagine, Intel was prompted to make such changes by the “approach of a new era”, the beginning of which will be marked by the entry into the market of the Meteor Lake processor family. The latter, as we remember, will only be available in the segment of laptops or compact desktop systems, as well as “monoblocks” that combine a monitor and computer hardware in one case.
Accordingly, the Intel desktop processor families following Meteor Lake should also use the new model naming system. However, since they won’t be released this year, consumers will just have to get used to name changes in the mobile segment for now. According to reports, Meteor Lake generation Intel Core Ultra mobile processors will be unveiled on December 14 this year.
