Intel Core Ultra Processors Features

Architecture

Intel Core Ultra processors are built on Intel’s 4 process technology- a new packaging using the company’s Foveros 3D technology. This will enable Intel to catch up with competition from TSMC and others.

CPU

Because the CPU style has changed for the better. The Intel Core Ultra series CPU now features a new P-core architecture with a higher IPC (instructions per cycle) count. Intel also introduced new low-power Efficient-cores to handle the lowest priority tasks and help improve battery life.

According to Intel, the Core Ultra processor has 11% faster performance than the Apple M3. Such a wide claim by Intel, but do well to return to read our comparison post. Now let’s move on to the GPU.

GPU

The Intel Core Ultra H-Series processors feature Intel Arc graphics with up to eight Xe-cores, AI-based XeSS (Xe Super Sampling), and DirectX Ultimate support. According to Intel, that is 2x the performance of the previous generation.

Intel Core Ultra supports hardware-accelerated ray tracing, mesh shading, AV1 encoding, and more.

AI

When it comes to AI capabilities, Intel paid so much attention here. The Core Ultra processor has an NPU called Intel AI Boost. The “AI Boost” is a dedicated processor that works hand in hand with the CPU and GPU. It’s meant for longer-running workloads and it uses less power, enabling up to 2.5 times better power efficiency than the previous generation.
