Intel Core Ultra 7 268V “Lunar Lake” CPU Benchmarks Leaked

Intel plans to launch its first Core Ultra 200 CPU series as early as September. This series will target low-power mobile devices and is expected to be certified as Copilot+PCs due to its powerful NPU unit.

Gamers and everyday PC users are likely to prioritize CPU and GPU performance over NPU capabilities. Fortunately, a recent leak from Geekbench offers insights into both single-core and multi-core performance tests.

The Core Ultra 7 268V is not the flagship model, as Intel also plans to release a Core Ultra 9 288V version with a higher clock speed of 5.1 GHz. In comparison, the 268V will boost up to 5.0 GHz. In Geekbench tests, the highest observed frequency on an engineering sample was 4881 MHz. The LP-Cores are expected to boost up to 3.7 GHz, but Geekbench does not record their frequencies.

Comparing this score with the recently tested Ryzen AI 9 365 SKU indicates that AMD Strix Point will outperform Intel. However, it’s important to note that both products target different power levels (17-30W for Lunar Lake and 15-54W for Strix Point), though technically, they could operate within the same power range.

We know that this particular Intel CPU includes 4 Lion Cove Performance CPU Cores and 4 Skymont Low-Power Cores. The SoC/processor is equipped with an Arc A140V GPU featuring 8 Xe2-Cores, which should boost up to 2.0 GHz. Unlike the Core Ultra 9 288V, which will have a 30W PL1, the Ultra 7 268V will operate in PL1 mode at 17W.
