Mysterious Meteor Lake-Generation Intel Core Ultra Processor Emerges in Gaming Test

Intel has started testing a new generation of mobile processors, codenamed Meteor Lake-P, in games. An entry was found in the benchmark database of the game Ashes of the Singularity testing a new processor with the unusual name Core Ultra 5 1003H.

Apparently, this is an early engineering sample of the future-series processor, but the chip’s unusual name draws attention. Typically, for technical samples, the manufacturer uses names in a different format. For example, Intel used the Core 1800 label for early samples from Alder Lake.

According to the test, the Core Ultra 5 1003H has 18 computing threads, a base frequency of 2.1 GHz and a TDP of 45 watts. The processor has 128 integrated graphics execution units. The processor configuration is unknown. The presence of 18 computing threads can either indicate that there are 6 productive and 6 energy-efficient cores, giving a total of 12 physical cores and 18 virtual threads (small cores do not support multithreading), or the specified processor from the Meteor Lake series is with an additional chiplet (or tile in Intel’s own terminology) SoC equipped with two additional energy-efficient cores. In this case, its configuration can consist of 4 productive, 8 energy-efficient and two SoC cores (14 cores and 18 threads).

In its financial report for the first quarter of 2023, Intel reconfirmed that it will introduce Meteor Lake processors in the second half of 2023. Mobile processors in the series are expected to be the first to be announced, with Raptor Lake Refresh desktop processors expected even later this year.
