Intel’s Lunar Lake-MX Lineup Surfaces Online, Featuring Xe2 GPU Cores, DisplayPort 2.1 Support & Much More

Intel’s hype around next-gen Lunar Lake architecture just fueled up since a “huge” leak now discloses details around the lineup’s “MX-mobile” variants.

Intel’s Lunar Lake-MX Lineup Expected to Feature Huge Generational Gains, Replacing The Upcoming Meteor Lake-U Series

Based on a new round of the company’s official slides, which were previously leaked out by YuuKi_AnS but were later taken down. However, a member of the Anandtech forum, Geddagod, was able to get a grasp of them, showing us what the next-gen lower power architecture will look like. The slides depict that Lunar Lake-MX will replace the yet-to-be-released Meteor Lake-U variants since they are targeted for a TDP range between 8W and 30W.

The surfacing of Intel’s official slides is huge since Lunar Lake isn’t expected to be released anytime soon. It has been revealed that Intel has collaborated with the tech giant Microsoft to develop an end-product that is power-efficient and industry-capable. Lunar Lake-MX will feature a cutting-edge dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU 4.0), which has been long rumored and has been seen as a great “breakthrough” for the AI industry, especially with the rise of generative AI applications.

Apart from including a next-gen VPU, Lunar Lake-MX will be the first batch of CPUs to mark the transition towards Battlemage architectures, known as the “Xe2-LPG” graphics. It is said that the series will come with 8 Xe-Cores and could potentially mark new industry benchmarks in terms of graphics compute performance and a generational leap from the previous Arc architecture. Lunar Lake lineup will support up to dual-channel LPDDR5X-8533 on-package memory, through which Intel plans to save power consumption and respective die sizes.

Expanding on the Battlemage architecture, it will have 64 Vector Engines, integrating Systolic AI/Super Scaling technologies, and with capabilities for real-time ray tracing. Xe2-LPG will support DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and eDP1.4 & 1.5, along with hardware-based VVC/H.266 video decoding. For onboard memory, the CPU tile will come with on-package memory configurations of 16 GB and 32 GB since the company plans on releasing multiple variants with different CPU and GPU core configurations. Through combining Lion Cove and Skymont cores, Intel plans on delivering exceptional performance to its users despite the lineup’s power limitations.


Lunar Lake-MX SKUs are targeted at a wider range of consumers, and it is disclosed that the lineup’s 8W model could operate without any type of cooling solution. The higher-end variants are expected to operate between 17W and 30W TDPs, and the slides disclose that peak Battlemage performance could reach up to 3.8 TFLOPS, equivalent to Apple’s M2 SoC. In terms of competence in the industry, Lunar Lake-MX CPUs could prove to be a massive moment in the mobile industry, mainly since the lineup is expected to bring significant generational changes onboard.

The Lunar Lake-MX series hasn’t seen a release date yet, but you can expect it somewhere in 2024. It will be interesting to see how the lineup holds up against existing offers, especially regarding how the Battlemage architecture brings improvements in graphics performance onboard.
