Just over two months after introducing the first 10th-gen Core “Comet Lake” processors designed for laptops and other low-power computers, Intel has added two new chips to the lineup.
Both processors are 15 watt, dual-core chips based on Intel’s 10th-gen Comet Lake architecture and Intel UHD graphics
But only the Pentium chip supports hyperthreading, which means it’s a 2-core/4-thread processor, while the Celeron processor is a 2-core/2-thread chip.
They lack some of the features of higher-priced Comet Lake chips including support for Turbo Boost. But they’re a lot cheaper.
With suggested pricing of $107 for the Celeron 5205U and $161 for the Pentium Gold 6405U, these chips are much more affordable than other Comet Lake chips, which sell for $281 and up. Keep in mind that those are the prices for PC makers who order in quantities of 1,000 or more.
Here’s a run-down of some key specs for the new chips and details about how they compare with other Comet Lake-U series processors:
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Cache||Nominal TDP/ ConfigUP TDP||Base Freq (GHz)||Max Single Core Turbo (GHz)||Max All Core Turbo (GHz)||GPU Max Freq (MHz)||Memory support|
