Roadmap for Intel’s next mobile processors leaked


It was Dell who inadvertently leaked this roadmap a few hours ago. In fact, the leaked documents relate to the American brand’s forthcoming XPS notebook range. Included in these documents is Intel’s roadmap for the mobile processors that will equip Dell’s future laptops. If this document proves true, we should have the following timetable:

  • Lunar Lake-MX: launch window between late Q3 2024 and January 2025.
  • Arrow Lake-H/U/P: launch window from January to March 2025.
  • Panther Lake / Panther Lake-H: launch window from Q4 2025 to Q1 2026.
  • Nova Lake: launch window Q4 2026 to Q1 2027.

Intel mobile processor roadmap: a few details.

Obviously, the dates in question cover a relatively broad period, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the final launch date is still uncertain. It could be that this “launch window” implies a sequenced arrival of references over the given period. On the other hand, we must necessarily take a step back from this leak, as at his conference on the company’s figures for early 2024, Pat Gelsinger had officially announced Panther Lake’s arrival for mid-2025. The leak published by Dell, on the other hand, suggests the end of 2025…

Returning to these generations of Intel CPUs, let’s take a moment to clarify the target of these future references. Lunar Lake-MX will target ultrabooks. It will therefore be the first to be released. Lunar Lake will be branded “Core Ultra 200V” and will feature a total of 8 cores (4 P 4 LP-E), an “Arc Xe2-LPG” Battlemage GPU with 8 Xe-Cores, up to 32 GB LPDDR5X integrated into the package and an NPU capable of over 100 AI TOP.

The big leap will be made with Panther Lake as we approach 2026. The range will mainly comprise the Panther Lake-H series for “performance” notebooks and can be found listed in machines equipped with Blackwell RTX 50 mobile GPUs. Panther Lake should include the latest Cougar Cove P-Cores and Skymont E-Cores.

Finally, the ultimate step in this roadmap is the arrival of Nova Lake with 20 W, 40 W and 80 W TDP options. Dell is due to launch a Nova Lake XPS 16 notebook in the first quarter of 2027.
