Intel Lunar Lake Chips Will Arrive in Q3 2024

Intel announced the Lunar Lake family of chips will launch in Q3 2023 with it confirmed to be used in 80 new computers by 20 manufacturers at that time. Lunar Lake will have an NPU capable of 40 TOPS while the Intel Xe2 GPU will offer up to 60 TOPS. With this Phi-Silica AI can run directly on devices comparable to Snapdragon Elite chips.

Lunar Lake is still an X86 chip unlike Snapdragon which uses full ARM architecture. With the upcoming launch of Lunar Lake chips, new Windows 11 features such as Recall and CorCreator will finally be used on PC AI. As a reminder AI PC is a family of PCs with Intel chips while Copilot+ PC is for PCs with Qualcomm chips.

While all the new features were announced yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Meteor Lake (Intel Core Ultra) chips cannot run these features because they do not pass the minimum NPU requirements with 40 TOPS. The NPU on Intel Core Ultra is only capable of 10 TOPS.
