Intel Shakes Up Desktop PC Market with Meteor Lake Processors in 2024

Intel Shakes Up Desktop PC Market with Meteor Lake Processors in 2024

Unexpected Revelation: Intel's Meteor Lake Coming to Desktops

In the immediate future, the desktop market will witness the launch of Raptor Lake Refresh, which is expected to run in parallel with Meteor Lake mobile. However, Meteor Lake desktop won’t make its appearance until later in 2024. This timeline raises questions about the potential overlap between higher-end Arrow Lake CPUs and lower-end Meteor Lake processors.

There are two plausible scenarios: one is that Intel will introduce Meteor Lake desktop in early 2024 to bridge the gap between Raptor Lake Refresh and Arrow Lake, which is slated for late 2024. The other possibility is that Meteor Lake desktop may arrive later in 2024, coexisting with Arrow Lake without significant overlap. Intel’s ability to manage this product release schedule will be closely watched by industry observers.
