i Series to Give Way to Ultra?
In an unusual move, Intel’s global communications director Bernard Fernandes confirmed on Twitter this morning that the chip giant is preparing to rebrand its chips for the second half of the year. Citing the company as being at an “inflection point” before launching his client CPUs in the Meteor Lake architecture later this year, Intel has clearly branded its first large-scale chiplet-based consumer CPU. We are developing something new to make it better.
yes. We are rebranding as we are at an inflection point in our client roadmap. #Meteor Lake processor. We will share more details about these exciting changes in the coming weeks. #Intel

The tweet in question doesn’t specifically mention what it’s reacting to, but given the context and timing, it’s almost certainly a reaction. recent rumors Intel preparing to rebrand the Core family of consumer chips.And that anand tech Contrary to our policy of not re-publishing or commenting on rumors, official comments from a high-ranking Intel PR person mean this is no longer just a rumor, but changes are in fact being made.
The current core paradigm has been established since late 2008 with the launch of generational core families and the now familiar i3/i5/i7 tiers. Intel has since added an i9 layer and has used the suffix several times over the last 15 years, but the core branding has remained relatively consistent across the 13th generation of parts.
However, if the rumors are true, the Core family will soon lose the i-series moniker.Based on benchmark data uploaded to Ashes of Singularity Benchmark results database – notorious source of leaks from hardware testers who neglect to turn off result reporting – Intel Core Ultra 5 1003H Found in database. This means that Intel intends to phase out the Core i-series brand for the new Core Ultra brand.
Indeed, Intel’s tweet does not confirm the Ultra branding.and Ash It is not a persuasive source of information on its own. But given that Intel chose to see a rebranding to coincide with the launch of Meteor Lake, other kinds of rebranding are clearly on the way if it’s not Ultra .
