CPU Latest news

Intel’s mobile Lunar Lake MX processors are expected to use Samsung’s LPDDR5X on-package memory.

According to DigiTimes, which cites information from supply chain sources, the Korean electronics giant could potentially achieve something “enormous” this year. Not only is this a significant development for Samsung, as the company could potentially make strides in the PC market, but the move to on-package memory is a feature that was previously reserved for Apple. The Cupertino-based company has used this with its M-series processors. The upcoming Lunar Lake-MX CPUs will indeed mark a revolution in computing power, and although their launch is still a long way off, the product line has already made headlines.

The first information about Intel’s Lunar Lake-MX CPUs with on-package memory was released back in November 2023. At that time, it was announced that the memory “positioning” of the series had been changed. It was speculated that the product line will support up to dual-channel LPDDR5X-8533 on-package memory to reduce power consumption and adjust die sizes accordingly. Allegedly, the chip package will ship with on-package memory configurations of 16GB and 32GB, which is particularly interesting for the laptop segment, at least at the current time.

Samsung may have been selected as Intel’s on-package memory partner due to its reputation in memory products, particularly LPDDR5X. This could give Samsung a significant entry into the mobile CPU market. On-package memory could be the future for laptops as the performance efficiency gains from this method are seen as “inevitable”.

The Intel Lunar Lake-MX CPUs are designed for a wide range of consumers. It has been announced that the SKUs will be available in different power categories, including “ultra-efficient” 8W models that can run without cooling. The high-end variants are expected to have power consumption between 17W and 30W TDPs. The slides show that the Battlemage’s peak performance could reach up to 3.8 TFLOPS, comparable to the Apple M2 SoC. It also marks the transition to the Battlemage GPU architecture, known as “Xe2-LPG” graphics. Furthermore, the debut of a state-of-the-art dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU 4.0) is expected, which will take AI performance to new heights.

The release dates for the Lunar Lake-MX chips are not yet known, but it is expected that they could hit the market this year. There is a high level of confidence in the product line and it is expected to open up new possibilities in the mobile CPU space.

Wenn das mit dem Packaging (3D) so stimmt, wundere ich mich allerdings auch, warum es dann bei Dual Channel bleiben soll? Die M von Apple haben da ja auch nicht halt gemacht, denn wenn man schon stapelt, warum das nicht entsprechend ausnutzen?
