Intel's hype around next-gen Lunar Lake architecture just fueled up since a "huge" leak now discloses details around the lineup's "MX-mobile" variants.
Based on a new round of the company's official slides, which were previously leaked out by YuuKi_AnS but were later taken down. However, a member of the Anandtech forum, Geddagod, was able to get a grasp of them, showing us what the next-gen lower power architecture will look like. The slides depict that Lunar Lake-MX will replace the yet-to-be-released Meteor Lake-U variants since they are targeted for a TDP range between 8W and 30W.
The surfacing of Intel's official slides is huge since Lunar Lake isn't expected to be released anytime soon. It has been revealed that Intel has collaborated with the tech giant Microsoft to develop an end-product that is power-efficient and industry-capable. Lunar Lake-MX will feature a cutting-edge dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU 4.0), which has been long rumored and has been seen as a great "breakthrough" for the AI industry, especially with the rise of generative AI applications.
Apart from including a next-gen VPU, Lunar Lake-MX will be the first batch of CPUs to mark the transition towards Battlemage architectures, known as the "Xe2-LPG" graphics. It is said that the series will come with 8 Xe-Cores and could potentially mark new industry benchmarks in terms of graphics compute performance and a generational leap from the previous Arc architecture. Lunar Lake lineup will support up to dual-channel LPDDR5X-8533 on-package memory, through which Intel plans to save power consumption and respective die sizes.
Expanding on the Battlemage architecture, it will have 64 Vector Engines, integrating Systolic AI/Super Scaling technologies, andRead more on wccftech.com
