Intel Lunar Lake CPUs to Get the Core Ultra 200″V” Series Branding

Intel’s Lunar Lake processors are expected to land this holiday season to power high-end notebooks and convertibles. We’ve already covered the basics of this lineup, including the core architectures and process nodes. This particular midrange chip is called the Core Ultra 5 234V. It features 8 cores, including 4 “Lion Cove” P-cores and 4 “Skymont” E-cores. The cores have a base clock of 2.10GHz to 3.10GHz, with boost clocks of at least 5GHz. Like Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake will lack hyper-threading, limiting the thread count to 8.

Lunar Lake is expected to get a Battlemage iGPU, but it’s yet to be confirmed. We might end up with an Xe-LPG+ part, with this one consisting of 64 EUs and 512 shaders. These chips are rumored to support LPDDR5-7200 memory, drastically boosting iGPU bandwidth.

Apart from that, the dedicated NPU on Lunar Lake will reportedly offer 3x the inferencing performance of Meteor Lake. These SKUs will be exclusive to the high-end and premium segments, leaving Arrow Lake-P (Core Ultra 2xx) and Raptor Lake-R (Core 2xxH) for the budget and midrange markets.
