Intel Says Lunar Lake Features A New Architecture For Low-Power Mobile Devices

Intel Lunar Lake is a new architecture for mobile devices with low power consumption. Intel will reveal additional information later this month.

Lunar Lake will employ Foveros packaging technology based on Intel’s 18A node. Intel does not specify the launch date but mentions it should be ready in 2024 or later, either after or alongside Arrow Lake.

Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Client Computing at Intel, affirmed to Dr. Ian Cutress  that Lunar Lake would be a new architecture from the bottom up.

In addition, this architecture is intended to prioritize mobile devices with an emphasis on power efficiency. This verifies that the architecture will primarily focus on the 15W power segment.

In addition, Intel Lunar Lake will include enhanced CPU, GPU, and VPU blocks with a reduced power envelope. Michelle verifies that Lunar Lake products should provide an all-day battery life without sacrificing performance.

Intel Lunar Lake should include an Intel 18A node and an enhanced Xe2-LPG graphics architecture. The fragmented and scalable design will allow Intel to select logical blocks for each silicon separately. Scalable architecture spans many architectures, shares IP blocks, and spans multiple performance segments.

This idea should be applied to the Meteor and Arrow Lake architectures in the future too. According to Intel, more details on Lunar Lake will be disclosed on January 26, Intel’s Q4’22 financial disclosure day.
