The Lunar Lake CPU has been the subject of rumors for a while now, with the processors set to take over for Meteor Lake. A recent leak has surfaced that is big news for enthusiasts, with the newest picture of the Lunar Lake MX CPU coming out. This picture shows off all the details of the CPU designed for light and thin notebooks.

The picture, first spotted by Igor’s Lab, displays a picture of the CPU as well as a schematic of the setup. The Lunar Lake MX CPU will have 4 Lion Cove P-cores and 4 Skymont E-cores, combined together for 8 cores. The design also features Battlemage GPU architecture, specifically the Xe2-LPG. It also features the LPDDR5x memory on the package. As mentioned before, this CPU is built for thin and light platforms. However, it still contains up to three times the performance of the NPU when compared to Meteor Lake.

The Lunar Lake line will launch alongside the Arrow Lake CPUs, which are the high-end version of the CPUs. AI capabilities on both will see a huge improvement from the previous-gen Meteor Lake. The Lunar Lake specifically will come in two different types that we know of so far. This includes the MX family and the M family.

The Lunar Lake line of CPUs still has a bit of time before we see them on the market, though. While no release date for Lunar Lake has been confirmed yet, rumors put it around late 2024. As we reach the beginning of 2025, more shipments of the CPU are expected to become available for the masses. We’ve already seen a few laptops leaked that feature Lunar Lake. The notebooks so far look impressive.

Getting this huge boost in the NPU performance is a big draw for upgrading the Lunar Lake. Plus, since it’s designed to be the companion to the high-end Arrow Lake, we can expect prices to be far more reasonable. It will be exciting to watch just what this CPU can do, and these leaks only ramp up the hype.
