Because the Intel Meteor Lake launch nears, rumors on the next-gen Arrow Lake & Lunar Lake CPUs have already began floating on the web.
Intel Arrow Lake & Lunar Lake CPUs To Function Subsequent-Gen Lion Cove & Skymont Core Architectures
It is no secret that the Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake CPUs might be changing Meteor Lake CPUs in 2024 and 2025, respectively. These next-gen CPU households have already been confirmed by Intel & primarily based on what we all know, they’ll be one other incremental step into the disaggregated future that Intel is eager on creating. As OneRaichu states:
- Arrow Lake-H CPUs – Lion Cove P-Core + Skymont E-Core + Crestmont LP E-Cores (SOC)
- Lunar Lake-M CPUs – Lion Cove P-Core + Skymont E-Core + Skymont LP E-Cores (SOC)
We all know that Intel Arrow Lake CPUs are anticipated to characteristic the next-generation Lion Cove P-Core & Skymont E-Core structure. Now as per a rumor by OneRaichu, it seems just like the 2nd Gen Arrow Lake-H “Core Extremely” CPUs is likely to be outfitted with a special sub-core for the SOC tile. Whereas Arrow Lake-H CPUs would characteristic Skymont E-Cores on the Compute Tile, the SOC Tile might undertake Meteor Lake’s Crestmont E-Cores. These E-Cores might be designed for low-power workloads and performance in an analogous method because the Meteor Lake LP E-Cores.
The Arrow Lake-H CPUs can have the compute tile fabricated on the Intel 20A course of node whereas the opposite tiles might be utilizing third social gathering and exterior nodes such because the 3nm course of node for iGPU.
As for Intel Lunar Lake-M, the CPU lineup is anticipated to make the most of both the 20A or 18A course of node for its Compute Tile. There are good indications that it is likely to be primarily based on 20A resulting from its readiness in comparison with 18A. Intel additionally not too long ago confirmed a working Lunar Lake chip at its Innovation occasion and that’s additionally proof that 20A is the potential course of for Lunar Lake chips with Panther Lake going within the sub-20A class. The compute tile for Lunar Lake CPUs is claimed to be composed of the identical Lion Cove P-Cores and Skymont E-Cores however the SOC tile may even characteristic Skymont LP E-Cores.
This aligns with current stories of Lunar Lake that includes a much bigger VPU/NPU improve over the Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake CPUs. Intel’s Lunar Lake-M CPUs might be focused solely on the low-power and mobility platforms with a spotlight set on delivering the very best efficiency/watt capabilities. The lineup might be launched round CES 2025. Similar to Meteor Lake CPUs, the Lunar Lake lineup will not see a desktop “socketed” launch.
