    Phoronix: Networking Support For Intel's Lunar Lake Coming With Linux 5.15

    Back in March I wrote about Intel open-source engineers already beginning Linux bring-up for "Lunar Lake" as a future client platform not due out until 2023 at least. That work began with enabling Lunar Lake within the existing e1000e network driver and that hardware enablment work will finally be mainlined this autumn with Linux 5.15...

    I'm quite confused. Is Lunar Lake the codename of Intel's future processors, or a complete platform?

        I'm pretty sure their SoCs have integrated Ethernet, for a while. They already integrate SATA and USB, so why not Ethernet? Reducing the number of chips on the motherboard saves money & space.
