Next-generation Samsung Galaxy Book 5 Pro will receive Intel Lunar Lake CPU and Arc GPU

Samsung is working on a new addition to the Galaxy Book 4 line, called the Galaxy Book 4 Edge. It will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite chip.

In addition, Samsung seems to be preparing the next generation of Galaxy Book 5 laptops. Recently, a Galaxy Book 5 Pro equipped with an Intel Core Ultra 200 series processor was spotted in the SiSoftware benchmarking database.

Intel’s upcoming processor is expected to be based on the Lunar Lake architecture and is expected to be unveiled later this year. However, it looks like early samples have already made their way to laptop manufacturers.

Lunar Lake is expected to introduce a new Intel processor design with four Lion Cove performance cores and four Skymont efficiency cores. This is a difference from the previous design with two performance and eight efficiency cores in Meteor Lake U.

In total, the chip will contain eight computing cores, and benchmarks show a base clock speed of 1.6 GHz and a clock speed of 2.8 GHz, although these speeds are likely to be for early prototypes and will be improved in future versions.

Additional features of the chip include two 12MB L3 caches (presumably intended for performance and efficiency cores, respectively) and 2.5MB of L2 cache per core. The device will also have 16 GB of LPDDR5X 8533 RAM.

Intel is also expected to equip Lunar Lake chips with Arc graphics based on the new Xe2 architecture.

According to the benchmark, the Galaxy Book 5 Pro variant will use a smaller iGPU configuration with 4 Xe cores, 64 execution units, 512 shaders, and 8 MB L2 cache. While not as powerful as the top-of-the-line Arc iGPU, it still represents a significant graphical improvement for laptops.
