Intel unveiled details about the Lunar Lake processor designed for AI-enabled PCs, featuring chiplet tiles manufactured by TSMC and slated for shipment in 3Q24. Pat Gelsinger, Intel's CEO, shared this information during his keynote address at Computex, also discussing Xeon 6 processors and Gaudi 2 and Gaudi 3 AI processors.

Gelsinger, among the top CEOs at Computex this year, succeeded Jensen Huang of Nvidia and Lisa Su of AMD. Lunar Lake is a chiplet-based processor crafted by TSMC with N6 and N3B processes, assembled using Intel's Foveros 3D packaging. Gelsinger highlighted Lunar Lake's 3x AI inference performance and 40% lower power consumption compared to its predecessor, Meteor Lake. Meteor Lake, Intel's initial PC processor utilizing foundry supply, combined Intel 4 and TSMC's N6 and N5 processes. Gelsinger explained that TSMC was chosen for Lunar Lake due to superior technology at the time. The processor incorporates Lion Cove performance core, Skymont efficiency core, and the NPU 4.0 neural processor achieving up to 48TOPS. Intel claims a total AI capability of 120 TOPS across the component. Lastly, Gelsinger noted Intel's established presence in the AI-PC market, having shipped more AI PC processors in the first quarter of 2024 than all competitors combined, indicating over 50% market share.
