3 to 4 generations with the Intel LGA1700 ?

Rocket Lake-S isn’t quite there yet as we begin to have marbles for Intel’s future. We all know it, the real changes will come after Rocket Lake-S which will end with the 14nm (and incidentally the 1200 socket).

The LGA1700: a socket there for a long time?

Alder Lake will be the first step of these changes with the new LGA1700 socket. We have already talked about Alder Lake, its promises and the changes in the architecture. Until now, there have been rumors that Intel plans to retain the LGA1700 platform for at least three generations, Meteor Lake and Lunar Lake were the announced candidates for this succession based on the same socket. However, according to the elements cited by VideoCardz, Intel could launch a new series called “Raptor Lake”. So far, Raptor Lake has not appeared in any leaks, but some sources believe that it will be launched after Alder Lake. Intel-Alder-Lake LGA1700 Raptor Lake is described as a refresh of Alder Lake, which may explain why it is not treated as a separate architecture. A refresh would also mean that it is manufactured with a 10 nm etching process, while Meteor Lake should logically be the first 7 nm EUV series and feature a “Redwood Cove” big-core architecture. This 10nm Raptor Lake series could serve as an interim product refresh until Intel finally begins mass production of its 7nm products.

The Intel Roadmap to 2024

However, it is important to remember that today, even more than yesterday, nothing is written in marble and that the calendar of outings can be profoundly changed. In the meantime, here’s the chart sweeping the future Intel generations in the coming weeks:
