Intel Lunar Lake is a new architecture designed for low-power mobile devices.

The company is to disclose more details later this month. 

Officially Lunar Lake is to feature Foveros packaging technology, and it should be based on Intel 18A node. Intel is not confirming the release date, apart from mentioning it should become available in 2024+, either after Arrow Lake or right beside it.

Intel’s EVG & GM of Client Computing, Michelle Johnston Holthaus confirmed to Dr. Ian Cutress (TechTechPotato) that Lunar Lake will be an entirely new architecture from the ground up. Furthermore, this architecture is so to focus on mobile devices with power efficiency being the most important focus. This confirms previous disclose that the architecture will mainly target 15W power segment.

Furthermore, Intel Lunar Lake is to feature upgraded CPU, GPU and VPU blocks with lower power envelope. Michelle also confirms that Lunar Lake products should offer all-day battery life with without compromising performance.

Intel Lunar Lake should feature Intel 18A node and an upgraded Xe2-LPG graphics architecture. The disintegrated and scalable architecture will give Intel freedom in choosing logical blocks for each silicon. Scalable architecture will span across many architectures, share IP blocks and will span across various performance segments. This principle should apply to upcoming Meteor and Arrow Lake architecture.
