Intel launches Elkhart Lake: 10nm Atom, Celeron, and Pentium chips for embedded applications

Intel’s new 11th-gen Core “Tiger Lake” processors for laptops and low-power desktops are grabbing a lot of attention thanks to a big graphics boost and a more modest bump in CPU performance. But this year Intel is also giving its low-cost, low-power “Atom” chips a major update. A bunch of new chips with “Tremont” CPU […]

Intel Jasper Lake processor lineup leaked (next-gen Atom)

Intel plans to update its line of low-cost, low-power chips for entry-level laptop and mini-desktop computers early next year. While official details haven’t been released yet, FanlessTech has obtained specs for Intel’s upcoming Jasper Lake processor lineup. The new chips are follow-ups to the Gemini Lake Refresh processors released in late 2019, and they feature Intel’s […]

Samsung Galaxy Book S with Intel Lakefield now available for $950

The first laptop with an Intel Lakefield processor is now available for purchase. After introducing the new version of the Samsung Galaxy S thin and light notebook a few months ago, Samsung has begun selling the notebook. The new Samsung Galaxy S is available for purchase for $950. It’s interesting to note that this means […]

Intel launches Lakefield hybrid chips for thin and light computers

Intel’s new Lakefield processors are the company’s first hybrid processors that combine higher-performance Intel Core CPU cores with energy-efficient Atom cores. They’re basically Intel’s answer to ARM’s big.LITTLE designs. But Intel goes about things in a somewhat different way by using its new Foveros 3D packaging technology to create a single chip featuring multiple CPU architectures. […]

Intel’s first Tremont chip is the Atom P5900 10nm processor (for networking products)

A few months after officially introducing its new “Tremont” architecture for energy-efficient processors, Intel is unveiling some of the first chips to use the new technology. The Intel Atom P5900 series processors are 10nm chips with 8 to 24 CPU cores, base frequencies of 2.2 GHz, and support for up to 128GB of DDR4-2933 MHz […]

Intel Core i5-L16G7 Lakefield chip details leaked

The upcoming Intel Lakefield processors will be the first in a new line of processors from the companies to combine CPU cores featuring different architectures. It’s basically Intel’s answer to ARM’s big.LITTLE technology that allows high-performance CPU cores to be paired with cheaper, more energy-efficient cores to balance performance, battery life, and price. We already knew […]

Intel introduces “Tremont” architecture for next-gen Atom chips, promises big performance gains

Intel’s Atom processors made their debut back in the days when small, cheap netbooks were a thing. Neither had a great reputation, and these days you won’t find many PC makers selling anything called a netbook… and Intel doesn’t sell any chips under the Atom brand anymore. But the company does continue to produce new […]

Intel unveils 5-year roadmap for low-power “Atom” chips

Intel may not sell consumer chips under the “Atom” name anymore, but the Intel Atom architecture is still at the heart of low-power processors including Intel’s Celeron and Pentium Silver “Apollo Lake” chips. These processors tend to be low-power chips that are used in a range of devices including inexpensive laptops, tablets, mini PCs, and […]
