The Intel Core Ultra 200V Lunar Lake processor performs approximately 25% slower than the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U “Zen 4” in rendering tasks.

A sneak peek into the performance benchmarks of Intel’s upcoming Core Ultra 300V “Lunar Lake” CPUs has been revealed, thanks to Jaykihn on X. These figures encompass tests like Cinebench R23, Geekbench, Crossmark, Sysmark, and 3DMark Timespy. Geekbench, often indicative of basic tasks such as browsing and app launching, will be excluded as it may not fully represent the chip’s capabilities. Let’s analyze how the Cinebench R23 results stack up against existing Intel and AMD Ryzen silicon.

Cinebench serves as a solid benchmark for tasks like rendering and typically aligns well with software like Blender and Cinema 4D. In the multi-core R23 test, the Core Ultra 300V records 10212 points, on par with the Core Ultra 7 165U “Meteor Lake” variant, and approximately 20-25% slower than the Ryzen 7 7840U. These are all 28W SKUs released within the last year.

The Lunar Lake sample exhibits superior performance in Crossmark, achieving 1801 points, 3% higher than the Ryzen 7 7840U and about 20% faster than the Core Ultra 7 165U. The disparity in performance across these two benchmarks stems from the nature of tasks they emulate. Crossmark encompasses various benchmarks like light browsing, content creation, file compression, multimedia tasks, each demanding different processor capabilities.

Cinebench R23 mirrors compute-heavy rendering tasks that thrive on core counts and clock speeds (including SMT, a feature Lunar Lake lacks). Consequently, with only 4 P-cores (and 4 LPE cores) without hyperthreading, Lunar Lake struggles to match the performance of Ryzen 7 7740U and its Meteor Lake forerunner.

Intel Core Ultra 200V Lunar Lake ~25% Slower than AMD Ryzen 7 7840U

Lunar Lake’s Timespy score is noteworthy, achieving 4151 points at 30W, slightly below the Radeon 890M on the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370. It’s worth noting that even the Core Ultra 7 155H outpaced the Ryzen 7 7840HS in 3DMark. However, it struggled significantly with real-world gaming tasks.

While Lunar Lake shows promise on the CPU front (excluding content creation and heavy computation), the Arc Battlemage Xe2 graphics might not compete with the RDNA 3.5 “Radeon 880M/890M) until Intel refines its graphics drivers for a broader spectrum of games.
