Core Ultra 5-238V backed by 32 GB LPDDR5X!


Lunar Lake-MX is back in the news, as we learn that the future Core Ultra 5-238V will benefit from integrated memory. Thanks to InstLatX64 on Twitter, we know that it will feature a total of 32 GB of LPDDR5X mounted directly on its package!

Core Ultra 5-238V: 32 GB of integrated LPDDR5X!

Intel Lunar LakeWith regard to this processor, we now know that Intel is planning to launch a generation of chips featuring an MCM design. As a result, the package of the latter promises to benefit from several dies, with cores and graphics on one side, the SoC on the other, and memory even further down the line.

In terms of configuration, Intel is offering a CPU with a total of eight cores. Once again, we’re dealing with a hybrid configuration with four Lion Cove performance cores and four Skymmont efficiency cores. However, we have learned that the chip is backed by a total of 32 GB of LPDDR5X-8533.

The advantage of mounting the memory directly on the package is, on the one hand, to reduce the footprint. On the other hand, there are also technical benefits, as latency is greatly reduced. Graphics also benefit greatly from this gain.

And while we’re on the subject, graphics should be based on Xe2 Battlemage cores. The main difference between the Core Ultra 5 and Core Ultra 7 is theiGPU: 8 cores for the Ultra 7 and 7 cores for the Ultra 5.

It’s also worth noting that an Ultra 5-234V has also been spotted, but with a smaller amount of memory. Here, we were faced with a CPU with 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory.
