Intel's upcoming Meteor Lake-S desktop processors have been leaked in a slide from an official presentation document. The slide shows a small selection of Meteor Lake-S and Arrow Lake-S desktop CPUs, as well as the refreshed Raptor Lake-S series. While recent leaks have focused on laptop variants of Intel's fourteenth generation Core lineup, not much has been revealed about a desktop-dedicated range. However, the leaked chart suggests that the Meteor Lake-S family is still in development and may launch later this year.
According to the chart, the Meteor Lake-S desktop processors will be limited to 35 and 65 W TDPs, which means that only Core i3 and i5 lines will be available in the 14th generation desktop lineup. Performance enthusiasts will need to look at the 15th gen Arrow Lake-S lineup, which includes the big i7 and i9 CPUs (up to 125 W), or the refreshed Raptor Lake lineup, which offers a wide range of options from i3 up to i9. Some industry experts are puzzled about Meteor Lake's prospects in the desktop processor sector, given its speculated skew towards entry-level and mid-range customers. It remains to be seen whether Intel will lose out by not offering more powerful variants or if they are working on a refreshed 14th generation product lineup for 2025.
