Intel confirms next-gen Arrow Lake CPUs for desktop and laptops launch for Q4 2024

Anthony Garreffa | May 20, 2024 11:07 PM CDT

Intel teased its next-gen mobile-focused Lunar Lake CPUs today, but also confirmed its next-gen Arrow Lake-S, Arrow Lake-HX, and Arrow Lake-H processors for both desktop and laptops are coming in Q4 2024.

Intel confirms next-gen Arrow Lake CPUs for desktop and laptops launch for Q4 2024

Intel's new high-performance Arrow Lake CPUs will hit the desktop later this year in Arrow Lake-S form, something that we should see confirmed (and detailed) at Computex 2024 in just a couple of weeks time. Intel has now provided a preview of its next-gen Core Ultra 200 "Arrow Lake-S" desktop CPUs, with a tease of the monolithic design that has multiple tiles inside.

Arrow Lake will feature a CPU, GPU, SoC, and I/O tiles, with the biggest of the tiles being the CPU and SoC which are the larger rectangular-shaped ones at the bottom, and the square one in the middle. There's also a dummy tile used, which is something Intel is also doing with its new Lunar Lake CPUs, too.

Intel next-gen Lunar Lake CPU preview: over 100 TOPS for AI, 50% faster Battlemage GPU, more

The next-gen Lunar Lake CPUs will set the foundation for the next-generation AI PC platform, with Intel planning to have the new Lunar Lake CPUs out and in products in Q3 2024. Intel's next-gen Lunar Lake is something truly special: it features all-new architectures across the board with new CPU cores, new GPU cores, new NPU cores, and more thanks to advances in 3D packaging technology and power innovations.

Intel will be using next-gen Lion Cove P-Cores and Skymont E-Cores for Lunar Lake, with some hopefully very delicious IPC improvements. Intel has teased that we'll have 3x the AI performance from Lunar Lake over Meteor Lake, with 45+ TOPS of NPU power for AI workloads. This is just from the NPU alone, while Lunar Lake offers 100+ TOPS of AI performance in total (NPU + CPU + GPU).
