In case the folks around here need a reminder of what Intel's plans looked like just 1 year ago, here's their roadmap as described at Intel's Accelerated event in the summer of 2021. Intel 4 was supposed to ramp up in 2022 and deliver products in H1 2023. And that's the updated timeline, after they had already announced a ~12 month delay at the end 2020

It feels like 2017 all over again, only this time at least they have better contingency plans both in terms of design and manufacturing. Looking forward to Intel 7+ in 2023.
Intel 4 is being used in other products than just Meteor Lake IIRC, horse creek falls.
This timeline does NOT indicate that Intel claimed MTL was going to be delivered in 1H 2023.
And Intel, so far, HAS followed that timeline. They claimed Intel 4 would be manufacturing ready by 2H 2022... and ye that is what they just very recently claimed they were at.
Intel definitely faced delays, but from what they specifically "announced" there are no delays at all. They never committed to a date for Meteor Lake other than 2023. I highly doubted they wanted to release ANOTHER alder lake refresh after raptor lake.
I think they have been pretty careful with their commitments though, with respect to release dates, with Pat Gelsinger.
