Intel's Budget CPUs Might Be Recycled, Insider Claims

New leak suggests Intel's upcoming Arrow Lake-S budget CPUs might just be rebranded older models. Find out what this means for consumers.

Intel's Budget CPUs May Just Be Rebranded Older Models, Insider Claims

According to insider "Jaykihn", Intel's upcoming Arrow Lake-S family of desktop CPUs may not feature any new entry-level Core Ultra 3 models. Instead, the company might simply rebrand existing chips as budget offerings.

Intel's Budget CPUs May Just Be Rebranded Older Models, Insider Claims

Here's a breakdown of the insider info:

  • Arrow Lake-S Lineup: The lineup is expected to include Core Ultra 9, Core Ultra 7, and Core Ultra 5 processors, grouped under the Core Ultra 200 series.
  • No New Entry-Level: New Core Ultra 3 chips are unlikely to debut with Arrow Lake-S. They might instead be part of the later Raptor Lake series, featuring Intel's Redwood Cove cores.
  • Rebranding Older Chips: This suggests Intel might simply rebrand existing chips, likely from the current Raptor Lake generation, as their budget offerings for the Arrow Lake-S lineup.
  • Stagnant Core i3: This move comes after years of minimal upgrades to the Intel Core i3 series. The 12th, 13th, and 14th generation Core i3 chips all featured four cores with hyperthreading, with only minor clock speed bumps each year (4.3 GHz, 4.5 GHz, and 4.7 GHz, respectively). With Arrow Lake rumored to ditch hyperthreading, new Core i3 CPUs would be left with just 4 cores and 4 threads, making them potentially unattractive for budget buyers.
