Now that PC makers are starting to launch computers powered by Intel’s low-power Apollo Lake processors, Intel is starting to provide more details about the chips.
The first 6 Apollo Lake chips are Celeron and Pentium processors aimed at inexpensive laptop, 2-in-1, and low-power desktop computers. But several the highest-performance Apollo Lake chips are 10 watt processors, which means they consume more power than their 6 watt Braswell predecessors… and they should offer better performance as well.
Here’s a run-down of the new chips:
- Celeron N3350: 1.1 GHz/2.4 GHz dual-core 6 watt CPU with Intel HD 500 graphics (200MHz/650MHz
- Celeron N3450: 1.1 GHz/2.2 GHz quad-core 6 watt CPU with Intel HD 500 (200 MHz/700MHz)
- Pentium N4200: 1.1 GHz/2.5 GHz quad-core 6 watt CPU with Intel HD 505 (200 MHz/750 MHz)
- Celeron J3355: 2 GHz/2.5 GHz dual-core 10 watt CPU with Intel HD 500 (250 MHz/700MHz)
- Celeron J3455: 1.5 GHz/2.3 GHz quad-core 10 watt CPU with Intel HD 500 (250 MHz/750 MHz)
- Pentium J4205: 1.5 GHz/2.6 GHz quad-core 10 watt CPU with Intel HD 505 (250 MHz/800 MHz)
All of the new chips are 64-bit processors with support for up to 8GB of RAM and up to 3 displays.
Intel is positioning the 6 watt chips as “mobile” and the 10 watt variants as “desktop” chips with higher base clock speeds. But all of these processors use less energy than the recently launched Kaby Lake-U line of 15 watt laptop processors, so theoretically there’s no reason you couldn’t see a Pentium J4205 in a mobile device… unless Intel decides it doesn’t want to sell that chip to PC makers that plan to use it in a mobile device.
