Intel Arrow Lake-U, -H, -HX, and -S Specs Leaked: What to Expect

A new leak reveals key specs of Intel's upcoming Arrow Lake mobile CPU lineup, including the -U, -H, -HX, and -S series. Get the details

Intel's Arrow Lake: Leak Spills the Beans on Next-Gen CPU Lineup

Intel's upcoming Arrow Lake processors are shaping up to be a major shakeup, and a recent leak has given us a juicy glimpse at what to expect. The big news? We're talking a LOT more cores than before!

Following in Lunar Lake's Footsteps (But With More Muscle)

Arrow Lake will share its DNA with the upcoming Lunar Lake, using the same hybrid architecture that combines powerful Lion Cove "P-cores" with efficient Skymont "E-cores." But while Lunar Lake is sticking to a slimmed-down design for ultraportable laptops, Arrow Lake is going all-out with configurations for everything from gaming laptops and beefy workstations to desktop PCs.

The Leak: Core Counts for Every Occasion

Leaker @harukaze5719 has unearthed information about the Arrow Lake lineup from the NBD customs database, and things are getting interesting. Here's the breakdown:

Arrow Lake-S (Desktops):

  • Powerhouse: 8 P-cores + 16 E-cores, 36 MB L3 cache, GT1 iGPU
  • Sweet Spot: 6 P-cores + 8 E-cores, 24 MB L3 cache, GT1 iGPU
  • Pure Performance: 6 P-cores + 0 E-cores, 18 MB L3 cache, GT1 iGPU

Arrow Lake-HX (High-End Laptops):

  • Gaming Beast: 8 P-cores + 8 E-cores, 30 MB L3 cache, GT1 iGPU
  • Workstation Wonder: 6 P-cores + 8 E-cores, 24 MB L3 cache, GT1 iGPU

Arrow Lake-H (Performance Laptops):

  • All-Rounder: 6 P-cores + 8 E-cores, GT2 iGPU

Arrow Lake-U (Thin & Light Laptops):

  • Efficiency Master: 2 P-cores + 8 E-cores, GT1 iGPU

What's the Catch?

  • No Hyper-Threading (For Now): Intel's new architecture ditches Hyper-Threading, so core counts don't directly translate to the usual thread counts.
  • Graphics Power Varies: Most models get a modest GT1 iGPU, while only the Arrow Lake-H series gets a beefier (though still Alchemist-based) GT2 iGPU.

The Future Looks Bright (and Efficient)

The combination of the new architecture and TSMC's N3B manufacturing process means we can expect significant efficiency gains over current-gen chips. That means more performance with less power consumption – music to any tech enthusiast's ears.

When Can We Get Our Hands on It?

Desktop users might get their first taste of Arrow Lake by the end of 2023, while laptop users will likely have to wait until early 2024. One thing's for sure: Intel's got some exciting things in store!
