Samsung is apparently already running tests with the Galaxy Book5 Pro based on Intel Lunar Lake, as a variant with a next-generation Intel processor and its brand-new iGPU based on the Xe2 architecture has been spotted in a benchmark database.

While Qualcomm is about to launch the Snapdragon X Elite, the successor to Intel Meteor Lake is also almost in the starting blocks. The first laptops based on Intel Lunar Lake are expected towards the end of the year, but the first samples appear to have already reached laptop manufacturers: a Samsung Galaxy Book5 Pro with a processor from the "Intel Core Ultra 200" series has just been spotted in SiSoftware's benchmark database.

The chip has eight computing cores and, according to earlier rumors, Intel will combine four new 'Lion Cove' performance cores with four 'Skymont' efficiency cores instead of just two performance cores and eight efficiency cores, as was the case with Meteor Lake U. The benchmark entry speaks of base clock frequencies of 1.6 GHz, corresponding to the performance cores of the Intel Core Ultra 5 135U. The boost clock frequencies are still extremely low at 2.8 GHz, which is not surprising for very early prototypes.

Intel installs two 12 MB L3 caches, presumably 12 MB each for the P and E cores, as well as a 2.5 MB L2 cache for each performance core and a further 2.5 MB for the entire efficiency core cluster. The 16 GB of LPDDR5X 8533 RAM also confirms earlier rumors. In addition to the additional performance cores in the economical U class, the brand new iGPU is particularly exciting, as Arrow Lake will be equipped with an Intel Arc graphics chip based on the new Xe2 architecture for the first time. This chip uses a relatively small iGPU with 4 Xe cores, 64 execution units and 512 shaders, which achieve clock rates of up to 1.85 GHz and are equipped with 8 MB L2 cache. By comparison, the currently fastest Intel Arc iGPU has 8 Xe cores and 128 execution units with clock speeds of up to 2.3 GHz.
