In a nutshell: Intel’s upcoming Lunar Lake CPU lineup has seemingly been leaked ahead of launch, revealing at least nine SKUs meant for different segments of the market. The lineup is expected to be led by the top-of-the-line Core Ultra 9 288V that could power flagship AI PCs in the near future.

The leak comes from VideoCardz, which claims that the upcoming Core Ultra 200V lineup will include nine SKUs, including four Core Ultra 7 and Core Ultra 5 CPUs. These will reportedly feature either 7 or 8 Xe2-Cores with 16GB or 32GB of LPDDR5-8533 memory. The Lunar Lake processors will be the first to ship with integrated on-package memory, which will not be user-upgradable.

Alongside the aforementioned chips, the new lineup is also tipped to include a Core Ultra 9 288V with 30W TDP. The report claims that this will be the only processor in the lineup to feature a 30W PL1 (Processor Base Power), while the rest will come with a 17W default TDP. The flagship processor is said to have a max clock speed of 5.1 GHz for P-Cores and 3.7 GHz for E-Cores.

Lunar Lake will also be the first platform from Intel to ship with a built-in NPU, powering Microsoft’s Copilot+ PCs. The NPU performance will range from 40 to 48 TOPS while the XMX (GPU) performance will vary between 53 and 67 TOPS. If the report is accurate, the Core Ultra 9 288V could offer 120 TOPS of performance in all, including 48 from the NPU, 67 from the XMX and 5 from the CPU.

The report adds that the integrated graphics in Lunar Lake will come with a “more natural naming scheme” when compared to their predecessors. The Core Ultra 9 and Core Ultra 7 will reportedly feature Arc A140V graphics with 8 Xe2-Cores, while the Core Ultra 5 is tipped to ship with the Arc A130V iGPU with 7 Xe2-Cores. The fastest graphics chips in the Lunar Lake SKUs are said to have a maximum boost clock of up to 2.05 GHz.

Intel announced its Lunar Lake platform at Computex 2024 earlier this month. The new lineup is said to offer a number of advantages over Meteor Lake, including better power efficiency, a 4x increase in NPU processing and 50 percent faster Arc GPU performance. Devices powered by the new chips are expected to hit the market this September.
