Intel Core Ultra 200V “Lunar Lake-V” Processors Max Out At 4P+4LPE Cores

More details have emerged for Intel’s upcoming Lunar Lake processors, relating to the ultra-low-power Core Ultra 200V series. Previously, one such chip was discovered in the form of Core Ultra 5 234V, which features 8 cores and 8 threads – no hyperthreading present.

Resident CPU leaker Golden Pig Upgrade (金猪升级包) is once again back with the latest information on Bilibili, and in this post, the leaker has provided a few crucial information relating to the new chip (and the architecture in general). First, ‘Lunar Lake-MX’, admittedly a confusing codename even for nerds like us, is now renamed ‘Lunar Lake-V’. What’s interesting, however, is the core configuration: the top chip within this family will use 4 Performance cores and 4 Low-power island cores, with no standard Efficiency core present on-chip.

The leaker further noted that all Lunar Lake chips will be the same on the core level, meaning the 4+0+4 core layout is guaranteed on all LNL-V chips. To differentiate between SKUs, Intel will instead cut down on clock speeds and L3 cache sizes for segmentation purposes – mind you, the last time I had to pay this much attention to L3 cache sizes was back in the mid-2010s when most chips were quad-cores and Intel argued you don’t need more than that.

On the stuff surrounding the CPU cores, Golden Pig Upgrade says the onboard GPU will use Battlemage architecture with up to 8 Xe2 cores, and the CPU supports up to 32GB of LPDDR5X-8533 RAM using memory-on-package (MoP) design (which supports two DRAM chips). In terms of power envelope, it’s not quite the 7W that Intel used to target for fanless segments; instead, the leaker says Team Blue is targeting 17-30W (including RAM power consumption), although fanless design with lower TDP limits is also an option.

Expect these chips to arrive in late 2024 at the earliest, or even early 2025. The same leaker previously noted that Lunar Lake will see limited release at first before the wider rollout begins sometime next year. Given that AMD is likely announcing its next-gen CPUs soon, Intel may have a keynote of its own to give the public a sneak peek of this architecture when the event kicks off this June.

Pokdepinion: I guess skipping E-cores entirely makes sense since LPE-cores are just low-power versions of the E-cores with no difference in instruction sets.
