Upcoming Intel CPU Models Confirmed by Diagnostic Tool – Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake SKUs Revealed

Upcoming Intel CPU Models Confirmed by Diagnostic Tool – Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake SKUs Revealed

The patch notes for CPU-Z version 2.10 have confirmed the names of several upcoming Arrow Lake-S desktop processors and Lunar Lake mobile processors. The changelog includes two Ultra 9s, two Ultra 7s, and two Ultra 5 variants, which boast an unlocked “K” SKU and a locked lower-end model. The Lunar Lake chips also include several Ultra 9, Ultra 7, and Ultra 5 variants, but they feature the all-new “V” terminology that’s new to this generation.

The Arrow Lake-S model names listed in the CPU-Z changelog are Core Ultra 9 285K, Ultra 9 275, Core Ultra 7 265K, Ultra 255, Core Ultra 5 245K, and Ultra 240. The model naming structure confirms that Intel will produce an unlocked “K” SKU variant of each series, along with a vanilla model without the permissive scheme. The only difference is that Arrow Lake has adopted the new Core Ultra naming scheme as Intel’s Meteor Lake processors.

Of course, these aren’t the only Arrow Lake-S processors we can expect from Intel. Inevitably, there will be more models at launch, including lower-powered variants and possibly Core Ultra 3 models (unless Intel refreshes the entry-level segment with Raptor Lake Refresh processors), but these six main variants will form the core of Intel’s Arrow Lake desktop processor lineup.

The number of Lunar Lake SKUs shown in the CPU-Z patch notes is significantly larger than the number of its Arrow Lake counterparts. The changelog reveals four Core Ultra 7 models and three Core Ultra 5 variants. The models listed are the Core Ultra 9 288V, Core Ultra 7 268V, 266V, 258V, and 256V, and the Core Ultra 5 236V, 228V, and 226V (the latter is accidentally listed as 2266V in the patch notes). These SKUs are virtually identical to our earlier leaked information about nine Core Ultra 200V processors .
