Intel quietly introduces its latest efficiency-focused processor, the Intel Core Ultra 5 115U, without even listing it in their product lineup as we need to wait for its launch date for market availability. This new chip, part of the Meteor Lake series, features a unique configuration of 2 performance cores, 4 efficient cores, and 2 low-power efficient cores, totaling 10 threads.

The two performance cores boast a maximum turbo frequency of 4.2 GHz, while the four efficient cores reach up to 3.5 GHz. The two low-power efficient cores have a maximum turbo frequency of 2.1 GHz. In comparison to the Core Ultra 5 125H, known for its performance, the 115U runs on lower peak frequencies for all cores but compensates with higher base frequencies for certain cores.

With a 10MB cache, the Core Ultra 5 115U offers slightly less cache memory compared to the 18MB cache of the Core Ultra 5 125H. Graphics capabilities are impressive, supporting resolutions up to 7680 x 4320 at 60Hz, matching the performance of the Core Ultra 5 125H.

The Core Ultra 5 115U is designed for efficiency, boasting a base power consumption of 15W, significantly lower than the 28W of the 125H. Additionally, its maximum turbo power is capped at 57W, far less than the 115W of its counterpart.

In summary, Intel’s Core Ultra 5 115U promises efficient performance with lower power consumption. But how will this new chip fare against its higher-powered siblings?
