Intel presented its next line of client CPUs, including Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake, and Panther Lake, at Innovation 2023.
During the event, Intel disclosed three CPU product lines that would replace its Meteor Lake CPUs, which will be available in December. The first is Arrow Lake, which, according to CEO Pat Gelsinger, is “hot out of the fab” and uses the 20A manufacturing node, with production starting next year and arriving in the second half of 2024. Arrow Lake CPUs will enhance performance, power, and area while utilizing a whole new core architecture geared for the laptop and desktop markets.
In addition, Intel demonstrated a demo unit using the next-generation Lunar Lake CPUs that not only powered on but also booted into the operating system, which is a significant advancement.
Lunar Lake CPUs will be designed exclusively for mobile platforms, with a brand-new CPU architecture built from the ground up that will be a significant upgrade over Arrow Lake. The visuals will also use the next-generation Xe2 “Battlemage” architecture, which will be a significant improvement on the Alchemist offerings.
Chipzilla previously announced that the Lunar Lake series was designed with the 15W low-power mobile CPU sector in mind. Because this is a multi-tiled chip design, the CPU will use a sub-20A node as its process technology, coupled with an external foundry node for different additional IPs. Intel’s latest and finest advancements, such as Foveros packaging (25um pitch), can be expected. The Lunar Lake CPUs compete with Apple’s M-class chips for its own Macbook and Mac systems, as well as AMD APU architectures with a chiplet-like design.
Finally, Panther Lake has been verified as a 2025 product. Panther Lake CPUs are said to be a follow-up to Lunar Lake and will most likely be found in both laptops and desktops. Panther Lake CPUs will be equipped with Cougar Cove P-Cores and the next-generation Xe3 GPU architecture, codenamed Celestial. In terms of core, graphics, and efficiency capabilities, each CPU will be a generational increase over the previous one.
