Intel teases Lunar Lake CPUs Will Feature Lion Cove, Skymont CPU cores

Intel teases Lunar Lake CPUs Will Feature Lion Cove, Skymont CPU cores
Aug 11, 2023

Intel has just teased more details about its upcoming Lunar Lake mobile CPU family, where we'll see the company bake in its next-gen integrated graphics archictecture -- Xe2 aka Battlemage -- into the GPU tile on Lunar Lake.

Intel has its next-gen Meteor Lake and then Arrow Lake CPUs before we get to Lunar Lake, with the new design on Lunar Lake using the disaggregated approach with separate CPU, SoC, and GPU tiles. The GPU tile powered by Battlemage on Lunar Lake is expected to have 8 x Xe Cores, while the CPU tile reportedly sees Intel introducing new CPUIDs onto its "perfmon" software, which is how we're finding out about the names of the core designs.

Intel's upcoming "Meteor Lake" is using Redwood Cove and Crestmont cores, from from the current-gen "Raptor Lake" CPUs using Raptor Cove and Gracemont cores. In between we've got Intel "Arrow Lake" which will be on the desktop variants, using the Lion Cove and Skymont CPU architectures, just like the mobile-focused "Lunar Lake" which will also use Lion Cove P-Cores and Skymont E-Cores. The difference between Arrow Lake (desktop) and Lunar Lake (mobile) is that Arrow Lake has a current-gen Xe-based GPU tile, while Lunar Lake has a next-gen Xe2-based GPU tile.

We should expect the upcoming Intel "Lunar Lake" CPUs to be inside of low-power laptops starting in the second half of 2024.
