Despite being late to the party, Intel’s first 7-nanometer CPU architecture appears to be on track to challenge AMD’s next-generation Ryzen processors. This is according to a tweet shared today by executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group, Gregory Bryant, who noted that Intel has begun taping in the compute tile for its first 7 nm client CPUs code-named “Meteor Lake.” Intel’s first Meteor Lake processors are expected to ship in 2023 and feature support for DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0.

Tape-in is relatively a new term used for non-monolithic designs. Intel Meteor Lake will be one of such designs as it features different manufacturing processes and will be packed using Intel Foveros technology. Today Intel has confirmed that Meteor Lake’s compute tile has taped in which means that the design is ready and it can now be completed to tape out the whole chip.
