The new Intel 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" CPUs will reportedly have a new LGA 2551 socket, measuring in at 38mm x 46mm with the new socket being "only slightly bigger in actual footprint compared to Alder Lake's LGA 1700" says leaker Tom @ Moore's Law is Dead.

Intel's new LGA 2551 socket wouldn't be much bigger than LGA 1700, but it craps all over the LGA 1700 socket in terms of pin count: 50% more pins. MLID also posted a real photo of an alleged LGA 2551 processor, so we can see those 2551 pins in all their glory.

Intel's upcoming 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" CPUs will be using a brand new tile architecture design, with the company making the new CPUs on their "Intel 4" process node. We can expect a 20% performance improvement in performance-per-watt through EUV technology.

There are 3 main tiles on Intel's next-gen Meteor Lake CPUs: the I/O Tile, the SoC Tile, and the Compute Tile. Intel's Compute Tile on the 14th Gen Core CPUs will pack both the CPU + GPU Tile, with the CPU Tile using the new hybrid core design -- pushing higher performance at lower power numbers, while the GPU Tile is truly something else -- exciting times.
