Overclocker teases Q3 2024 launch for Intel Arrow Lake CPUs and updated memory controller

Toppc teases a Q3 2024 launch for Intel’s next-gen Arrow Lake CPUs

Later this year, Intel plans to launch their next-generation Arrow Lake processors. These CPUs are expected to use the company’s LGA-1851 socket, and launch alongside a new generation of motherboards.

MSI’s resident Overclocker Toppc has reportedly teased these upcoming CPUs at an MSI “Dragon Shield” event in Wuhan China. At the event he teased a Q3 2024 release timeframe for Intel’s Arrow Lake CPUs. He also suggested that Intel are redesigning their DDR5 memory controller for their next-gen CPUs.

Intel’s current-generation CPUs support both DDR4 and DDR5 memory. With their next-generation LGA-1851 CPUs, Intel will only be supporting the newer DDR5 memory standard. This gives Intel the opportunity to completely revamp their memory controller design. DDR4 support has been ditched, and Intel can now fully focus on DDR5.

Intel’s Arrow Lake processors will likely launch in the form of “Ultra 200” series processors. Recent rumours have suggested that Intel’s next-generation processors will support DDR5-6400 memory as standard. As always, higher memory speeds arepossible through overclocking. DDR5-6400 is around 15% faster than the DDR5-5600 memory that Raptor Lake officially supports. This suggests that Intel’s next-gen CPUs will support much faster DDR5 speeds than Raptor Lake.
