Intel Core ‘Ultra’ Series: Learn about it

Almost everyone knows that Intel has changed the naming and classification of the processor, except for Core ‘i3/5/7/9’, the processors will be called Intel ‘core’ and çore ultra’ 3/7/5/9. From Mateor Lake or 15th Gen, the processors will come to the market with this kind of naming. Today we will discuss this new series, 15th gen or Mateor Lake, processor number, specifications, performance release date etc.

A summary of Intel’s nomenclature and future processor generations at a glance

From Intel’s 15th gen mobile lineup processors will have Core and Core Ultra 7,5,9,3 instead of Core i3/i5/i7 or i9. 15th Gen Laptop or Mobile Lineup will be the Core Ultra 100 series. There will be a Core ultra 100 H processor and Core Ultra 100 U processor.

On the other hand, only Core or Non Ultra processors will be Raptor Lake rebranded.

Arrow Lake

Similarly, the next generation will be called Core 200/300 or Core Ultra 200/300 series. Although Mateor Lake is only for the mobile lineup, Arrow Lake will also have desktop processors.

Arrow Lake will have Intel 20A CPU Tile Node and Lion Cove for P Core Skymont Cove architecture will be used for E core and GPU Section will have Xe-LPG+ architecture. Core-H series is known to have 6+8 cores and Core-HX series has 8+16 and 8+24 core configurations. Arrow Lake will support LPDDR5X-7500 MHz and DDR5-5600 MHz RAM by default.

Lunar Lake

Lunar Lake will be ready on TSMC’s N3B node. Lion Cove and Skymont Cove architecture will have P-Core and E-Core with Xe2-LPG and iGPU architecture. GPU can have 8 cores. Also, not much information is known about Lunar Lake because it will officially come to market around 2025.

Intel Meteor Lake: What’s known so far

Intel Mateor Lake Laptop Lineup will be officially launched in a few days. In the last few months, a lot of Rumors as well as a lot of information has come to the media through Leak. Core 100 series processor will use Redwood Cove architecture for P core and Crestmont Cove architecture will be used for E core. The iGPU will have Xe-LPG. The iGPU will have 8 Xe-cores. It will support up to 64GB of 6000MHz LPDDR5X memory.

Mateor Lake: 100H Series Processor Specifications

Mateor Lake 100H series 5 processors are known so far. Among them, there are two Ultra 7 and Ultra 5 processors as well as an Ultra 9 processor. This lineup has a minimum 14 core 18 thread processor and a maximum 16 core 22 thread processor. Core Ultra 5 125H has 14 cores and 18 threads. These processors have P Core, E Core as well as SoC Core or LP-core. Among the 14 cores, the Ultra 5 125H has 4 P cores, 8 E cores along with 2 SoC cores. It will have 6 GPU cores with a base clock of 3.6 GHz and a maximum boost clock of 4.5 GHz. Runs on 28 watts of power.

The Core Ultra 5 135H has the same specifications as the 125H. The number of cores, number of threads, TDP or number of GPU cores are all equal to 125H here. However, even with the same amount of base clock, the boost clock speed will be 100 MHz lower in the Ultra 5 135H.

Now let’s talk about the two processors of Core Ultra 7. The two processors of Ultra 7 are 155H and 165H. Both processors will have 16 cores and 22 threads, along with 8 GPU cores each with a TDP of 28 watts. The 155H has a base clock of 3.8 GHz, a boost clock of 4.8 GHz and the 165H has the same base clock but a boost clock of 200 MHz higher.

And last but not least, the difference between Core Ultra 9 185H and the previous two processors is 45 W TDP, 2.6 GHz base clock and 5.1 GHz boost clock.

Mateor Lake: 100U series processor specifications

Knowing about H series or high-performance segment laptops, now let’s take a look at the U series. Not much information is available about the U series, only a few processor names and basic specifications are available in isolation, some with clock speed, some with TDP, and some with just the name.

The basic information is that the names of the 5 processors are known, one of which is Raptor Lake. Among these 5 processors, some processors have a TDP of 15 watts, some processors have a TDP of 9 watts. The 5 processors include two Ultra 7 and two Ultra 5 as well as a “core 7” 150U processor. There is no known reason why the latter model is named differently from the rest, but the processor is from the Raptor Lake family, not Mateor Lake.

The Core Ultra 5 134U and 164U will run at 9 watts of power. Apart from this TDP, nothing is known about the base clock, boost clock, number of cores and threads, or GPU of these two processors.

Raptor Lake’s Core 7 150U is a 10-core (2+8) 12-thread processor that runs at 15W TDP.

The Core Ultra 5 125U and Ultra 7 155U will also run at 15W TDP.

How can the performance be?

Several leaks have surfaced in different synthetic benchmark results for different processor models of the Core Ultra series at different times. While the Core Ultra 5 125H outperformed AMD in the iGPU test, the Intel processor lagged behind in the processing power test. Benchmark performance compares Ryzen 7840HS and Core i5 13500H. On the other hand, the Core Ultra 9 185H was tested in CPU-Z. The iGPU of the Ultra 7 155H was tested in Cinebench, Open CL, and TimeSpy.

In the OpenCL GPU test, the 155H’s iGPU performance was right between the Radeon 760M iGPU and the Arc A350M mobile dGPU.

Again, in the 3dMark Timespy test, the score of Intel core 7 Ultra 155H was 1% higher than Arc A350M and 7% lower than A370.
