Intel Meteor Lake CPUs Might Feature Neural Engine Acceleration

Yesterday, Tom from the YouTube channel Moore’s Law Is Dead posted a video on Intel’s newest architecture, codenamed Meteor Lake. The architecture might include an Apple-style Neural Engine. Apple’s Neural Engine may be found in PCs, laptops, and the most recent iPhone models. However, Intel aims to use a comparable technology that they developed themselves.

Intel Meteor Lake to feature a 16-core neural engine as part of its VPU?

Although Intel’s newest Alder Lake CPUs have yet to be released; the YouTube channel’s host believes that Intel has already hinted at the availability of an integrated visual processing unit (VPU) in the near future. It’s feasible that we’ll see Intel’s new technology as early as 2023.
The VPU is expected to take up space adjacent to Intel’s CPU core design on the dies and will behave similarly to Apple’s Neural Engine technology. Apple’s M1 is equipped with Neural Engine technology.

Tom explains how the VPU could handle video more effectively by upscaling video output in this post. He gave the example of streaming Netflix in 4K resolution rather than downscaling to 1080p due to individual bandwidth speeds. Using a low-power VPU to upscale video would relieve the CPU of some processing resources, according to Intel.
It’s also worth noting that AMD wants to include on-chip machine learning acceleration in its forthcoming Van Gogh and Rembrandt chips. Rembrandt Ryzen APUs for desktop and mobile would be the first CPUs to use the technique in a broad market PC.
