New Rumor Suggests Intel Core Ultra 200V Lunar Lake Hits 4100 Points In TimeSpy At 30W

According to new benchmarks and power measurements from Jaykihn, who also disclosed the Intel Core Ultra 200V lineup, the integrated Xe2 graphics in the upcoming Intel Lunar Lake processors may offer a competitive edge over AMD’s Strix Point. Both products are expected to launch next quarter.

Officially, Intel Lunar Lake targets low-power systems, such as lightweight laptops typically using U-series (15-30W) processors, while Strix Point focuses on systems with power consumption ranging from 15W to 54W. The Intel CPU, featuring a completely new CPU architecture, an upgraded NPU (AI accelerator), and brand-new Xe2 graphics, is shaping up to be one of the most interesting products Intel has released in some time.

The graphics are anticipated to be released as Arc A130V or 140V SKUs, with 8 or 7 Xe2 Cores, respectively. These new Battlemage-based GPU cores are expected to be featured in discrete desktop GPUs, possibly as early as next year. According to reports, Intel Lunar Lake’s GPU is already showing impressive performance in 3DMark Time Spy tests, achieving a score of 3438 points at 17W and 4151 points at 30W.

Firstly Intel Lunar Lake utilizes a Memory on Package (MoP) configuration, with 16GB or 32GB of LPDDR5X-8533 memory soldered to the base tile. As a result, power settings are not directly comparable to those of AMD Ryzen or Intel Meteor Lake, since those do not include memory power consumption, which is expected to be around 2-3W.

Second, memory speed can greatly affect TimeSpy performance. The Core Ultra 7 155H processor (with 8 Xe-Cores) can easily outperform the Core Ultra 9 185H if faster memory is used.

According to Goldenr Pig Upgrade, AMD Strix Point APUs are expected to achieve 3500 points in TimeSpy at 15W and over 4000 points at 54W. This indicates strong performance at low power settings for AMD’s architecture. However, it’s important to note that these power settings are not directly comparable due to differences in memory power consumption.

If both reports are accurate, both architectures will provide attractive options for low-power gaming.

The gaming handheld market is likely to see significant advancements with these new architectures. For Intel Lunar Lake, at least three gaming-specific devices utilizing this architecture have already been announced.
