Particulars relating to Intel’s next-generation Arrow Lake-P Mobility CPUs have been obtained by Jim over at AdoredTV. In line with the data introduced, it appears like Intel’s next-gen mobility options can be that includes a hybrid chiplet structure which can compete immediately in opposition to AMD’s Zen 5 and the most recent SOC’s from Apple.
Intel Arrow Lake To Sort out AMD’s Zen 5 & Apple’s Subsequent-Gen SOC With Hybrid Chiplet Based mostly Structure With Up To 14 CPU Cores & 2560 Xe GPU Cores
Intel’s Arrow Lake household was revealed earlier this month and is anticipated to be the fifteenth Gen Core lineup when it launches in late 2023 or early 2024. We acquired to study within the earlier leak that the brand new household can be using two new core architectures codenamed Lion Cove (efficiency cores) and Skymont (effectivity cores). The Arrow Lake chips can even pack an up to date Xe GPU structure nevertheless it appears like Intel can be sourcing out its Alder Lake-P CPU and GPU tiles to be manufactured on the TSMC 3nm course of node as an alternative of its personal ‘Intel 3’ node.
Coming to the Arrow Lake-P configuration, we’re going to see a a lot completely different configuration than what’s rumored for the Arrow Lake-S Desktop platform. The Alder Lake-P CPUs are anticipated to rise up to six Large Cores (Lion Cove) and eight Little Cores (Skymont). This might give a most of 14 cores & 20 threads which has similarities to what Alder Lake-P and Raptor Lake-P configurations are anticipated to supply. The Arrow Lake-S are rumored to rise up to 40 cores and 48 threads so there’s fairly a core and thread rely disparity occurring between the desktop and cell platforms.
The iGPU half on the Arrow Lake-P platform is much more attention-grabbing with Intel going for as much as 320 Iris Xe EUs within the GT3 configuration. That is a complete of 2560 cores which ought to carry the general GPU efficiency near entry-level and even mid-range desktop choices and we’re speaking about an built-in graphics resolution. This explicit product can be marked as a Halo product so we’re trying on the high-end mobility SKUs for laptops. The GPU is claimed to measure at round 80mm2 in order that’s plenty of die area simply devoted to a singular graphics die.
So general, that is stated to compete in opposition to AMD’s rDNA 3 or a next-gen RDNA graphics structure, There’s additionally an ‘ADM’ chip on the Arrow Lake-P SOC which AdoredTV factors out as a further cache module onboard the answer. It could very nicely be a stack chiplet design much like AMD’s 3D V-Cache resolution that is launching on the desktop phase subsequent 12 months.
As for competitors, the Intel Arrow Lake-P mobility lineup will compete in opposition to AMD’s Zen 5 based mostly Strix Level APUs which can characteristic a hybrid chiplet structure themselves and Apple’s next-gen M* SOC in Apple Macbooks. In a current interview, AMD’s VP said that they eye Apple as the primary competitor in the long run with a really aggressive Zen roadmap and it appears like Intel would have two rivals within the cell phase transferring ahead with very highly effective merchandise in every of the respective phase.
