The Upcoming Intel Arrow Lake CPUs Will Be Called Core Ultra 200 Series

CPU leaker Golden Pig Upgrade (金猪升级包) has provided latest information regarding Intel’s upcoming chips. The leaker claims the upcoming Arrow Lake CPUs will be using the Core Ultra 200 naming (which means officially it’s referred as Series 2), succeeding Meteor Lake which uses the Core Ultra 100 (Series 1) naming.

“Exactly as expected, Arrow Lake will be officially named Core Ultra 2xx, and Raptor Lake-H Refresh as Core 2xxH,” the leaker posted on Bilibili.

While Core Ultra 200 will be all Arrow Lake, Core 200 will see the familiar name returning once again. The leaker also claims that Raptor Lake, which first debuted on Intel’s 13th Gen Core, will be part of the upcoming Core 200H series. That makes this architecture spanning across four family of chips – 13th Gen, 14th Gen, Core Series 1 (U-series only), and Core Series 2.

Exactly why Intel is bringing Raptor Lake forward once again is unclear, however. Since H-series is mainly designed for high-performance laptops, there’s not much reason for them to use older chips – given that performance is the name of the game. Our best guess is that Arrow Lake’s production is not fast enough to catch up the demands, so budget gaming laptops may end up sticking with the Intel 7-based Raptor Lake, while premium gaming laptops will be using the Arrow Lake chips.

The Core Ultra Series 2 may also include Lunar Lake, which is a direct successor to Meteor Lake designed for low-power, premium-segment laptops. The desktop segment will also follow similar naming.

Pokdepinion: The naming scheme will get pretty confusing by the looks of it. AMD’s naming scheme made a lot more sense to me, meanwhile.
