Intel has announced that its upcoming Lunar Lake chips, designed for Copilot+ AI PCs, will be released this fall. However, at this year’s Computex, the company provided more detailed technical information.

Lunar Lake CPUs will feature an enhanced neural processing unit (NPU), delivering up to 48 TOPs (tera operations per second) of AI performance. This is a significant improvement compared to Intel’s previous Meteor Lake chips, which offered a 10 TOPS NPU.

In addition, the new 8-core CPUs will also feature an Xe2 GPU, promising 80% faster gaming performance compared to the previous generation, plus an AI accelerator with an additional 67 TOPS of performance.

However, the most significant (and unexpected) news is that Lunar Lake will also include onboard memory, in a similar manner to Apple Silicon. Lunar Lake chips will be available in 16GB or 32GB configurations, and allow Intel to reduce latency and system power consumption by up to 40% by positioning the memory closer to the processor cores.

Regarding connectivity, the new chips will support the latest standards: Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, PCIe Gen5, and Thunderbolt 4. It is surprising, however, that Intel has not committed to Thunderbolt 5, even though it plans to introduce the standard later this year.

With the release still some months away, Intel has yet to disclose specific chip models or detailed specifications. Nonetheless, based on company benchmarks, Lunar Lake is expected to outperform Meteor Lake significantly. When running Stable Diffusion, Lunar Lake completed 20 iterations in 5.8 seconds, compared to 20.9 seconds for Meteor Lake.

Intel’s game-changing new chips certainly look like something for enthusiasts to get excited about, especially as over 80 different AI laptop models from 20 manufacturers will ship with the new hardware before 2024 is out.
