Rather than appearing in traditional socketed forms for desktops, Meteor Lake is slated to be present as a soldered processor in AiO systems. Intel's approach underscores a focus on the mobile computing domain, sidestepping the release of Meteor Lake for the typical desktop and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) sectors. It is likely that, analogous to previous Intel generations, Ball Grid Array (BGA) solutions might be incorporated in AiO devices.
Meteor Lake is a power efficient architecture that will power innovative mobile and desktop designs, including desktop form factors such as All-in-One (AIO). We will have more product details to share in the future.

Intel's updated position confirms that, apart from potential BGA offerings in AiO and mini PC models like the Asus NUC series, Meteor Lake won't be a part of the broader desktop landscape. Desktop CPUs featuring Intel's Arrow Lake are anticipated to be the forthcoming release for the DIY market, with a projected launch in the second quarter of 2024.
