Intel Arrow Lake for mobile with powerful GPU
AdoredTV claims to have the first information on mobile series succeeding Meteor Lake.
Last week a list of supposed Intel product codenames has been making rounds on the tech news websites. The message that was originally shared on Reddit has since then been removed and then copied to the forums, only to eventually resurface a month later. While the list of codenames that was shared was clearly tagged as speculation, it appears that at least some of its parts are now being confirmed by the leakers.
YouTuber AdoredTV confirms that Arrowlake exists and it indeed features “Lion Cove” high-performance core and “Skymont” high-efficiency core as the original leak claimed. That of course might be a temporary name, but this is how they are called right now internally.

It is said that the mobile version of the Arrow Lake would feature 6 big cores and 8 little cores. This might be a bit surprising as the upcoming Alder Lake-P series is already expected to offer such a configuration. It is even more confusing once we look at the original Arrow lake leak, which claimed that a desktop version would have as many as 8 big cores and 32 small cores. What is important to note here though, is that the P mobile series are not the flagship series. With Alder Lake, Intel will now be introducing a new S-series segment with TDP ranging from 45 to 55W, while the P series are divided into 15/28 and 45W TDP segments.

More importantly, the leak suggests that Intel will be making big changes to the integrated graphics. Instead of 96 Execution Units now to be used on 12th Gen core Alder Lake-P, the series now rumored to be 15th Gen Core would see an increase to 320 Execution Units (2560 shading processors). That’s a significant increase for integrated graphics that we know little about yet.
Arrow Lake appears in the original leak as Meteor Lake successor, to be released just 6 months or so later, which does not sound very realistic, even though we expect the same thing to happen with Alder Lake arriving just two quarters after Rocket Lake. Intel Arrow Lake is not a Meteor Lake refresh either, as it is using a different microarchitecture.
With all that in mind, it is hard to guess the graphics architecture that the series might use. Judging from the previous leaks though, it should either be Gen12.7 from Meteor Lake or Gen13 from Lunar Lake, which is expected to feature the same core microarchitectures.
