As spotted by some data mining, Intel is prepping two variants of its upcoming Core Ultra 5 mobile processors featuring on-package memory. These Core Ultra 5 processors utilize a kind of all-in-one package design which includes an Ultra 200V series CPU featuring 4 big Lion Cove P-Cores, 4 little Skymont E-Cores, Intel’s latest Xe2-LPG Battlemage graphics, Intel’s 4th generation NPU for AI acceleration, and LPDDR5X memory running at 8533 MH/s. Graphics for the Core Ultra 5 series will use 7 Xe2 cores while the larger Ultra 7 series gets 8 Xe2 cores. The two Core Ultra 5 processors, 238V with 32 GB and 234V with 16 GB were spotted by InstLatX64 in a recent Intel Arc Linux driver.

It’s no secret that Intel is prepping its Lunar Lake lineup but it is somewhat exciting to see these early details emerge as they represent a pair of powerful mobile solutions. With fast onboard memory, applications should load very quickly and tasks such as content creation or daily work should see considerable speed improvements as well. All of this combined with Intel’s latest Battlemage graphics only serves to show Intel’s commitment to making a competitive product in the mobile sector. Both appear to be listed at 2.10 GHz, but given the differences between base and boost clock speeds and how Intel’s P and E architecture works, this frequency shouldn’t be considered the only reference for processor speed.

Intel is also expected to launch its Arrow Lake processors for mobile and desktop that feature similar designs but will not get the newer Battlemage Xe2 graphics. Instead, they are said to feature the older Arc graphics.

Cooling Requirements

According to leaked slides from YuuKi_Ans/Intel (via VideoCardz), Intel plans to release SKUs with power draw ranging from 8W to 30W. The 8W model(s) can support a fanless cooling solution while the 17W-30W designs require active cooling.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
