Intel’s Patent Particulars Meteor Lake’s ‘Adamantine’ L4 Cache

Unofficial data that Intel’s upcoming codenamed Meteor Lake processor is ready to function L4 cache has been floating round for a while now. Now, a new Intel patent discovered by VideoCardz signifies that Intel has prepped a codenamed Adamantine L4 cache tile that it could use for some CPUs. This IC might compete towards AMD’s 3D V-Cache in sure functions, however the chiplet is not going to be used solely as a efficiency booster.

Sometimes, caches serve to extend the efficiency of the reminiscence subsystem by quickly offering compute cores with mandatory information. However there are different use instances too, as massive caches can retailer quite a lot of information. The patent means that Intel’s Adamantine (or ADM) cache can enhance communication not solely between the CPU and reminiscence but additionally between the CPU and safety controller. For instance, the L4 can be utilized to enhance boot optimization and even protect information from caches at reset to enhance loading instances.
