Intel has launched all-new Intel Pentium Silver and Intel Celeron processors based on the Gemini Lake architecture.
The new processors are engineered to balance performance and connectivity for the things people do every day — working on office documents and spreadsheets, browsing online, enjoying favourite shows and movies, and editing photos — with great battery life.
To help differentiate processor performance levels and make it easier for consumers to decide which device is best for them, Intel is introducing new brand levels: Intel Pentium Silver and Intel Pentium Gold.
Intel Pentium Silver processors represent the cost-optimized option in the Intel Pentium processor family.
Intel Pentium Gold processors — which are already in market, based on the Kaby Lake architecture — represent the highest-performing Pentium processors available.
For the first time on any PC platform, Intel will offer Gigabit WiFi capability for ultra-fast connectivity with the Intel Pentium Silver and Intel Celeron processors.
Using the industry standard of 2×2 802.11AC with 160MHz channels, users now have the capability for extremely fast networking performance that delivers download speeds up to two times faster compared with systems using 802.11AC, 12-times faster compared with systems using 802.11 BGN, and even faster than a wired Gigabit Ethernet connection3,4,7.
Intel Pentium Silver and Intel Celeron-based systems will be able to handle the latest in enhanced media and a display technology called Local Adaptive Contrast Enhancement (LACE) will launch in the value space to help people clearly see the screen outdoors in glare and bright light.
The new processors launching today are Intel Pentium Silver processors N5000 for mobile and J5005 for desktop, and Intel Celeron processors N4100 and N4000 for mobile and J4105 and J4005 for desktop.
