Pentium and Celeron in laptops and desktops in 2021

What we used to call Atom will continue to be known as Pentium and Celeron in affordable laptops and small form desktop computers coming in 2021.

A year ago, I got to speak with Stephen Robinson, Senior Principal Engineer and Intel Tremont Chief Architect, and learn a lot about the upcoming cores. Our friends at Fanless tech have the desktop lineup, and they shared that you can expect to see these mini desktops and notebooks based on the Tremont Pentium and Celeron processors in early 2021.

The performance uplift that can be expected from the new processors could jump between 30 and 40 percent compared to Gemini Lake.

Desktop 10nm 10W

Desktop CPUs will end up branded with Pentium Silver and Celeron and will sit with 10W TDP. Top of the line is the Pentium Silver N6005 with four 10nm Tremont cores and four threads clocked at @ 2.0GHz with maximal quad-core burst all the way to 3.3GHz. It comes with UHD Graphics and features 4M L2 cache.

The runner up is the Celeron N5105 with four cores and four threads at 2.0GHz, and the maximal quad-core turbo core burst to 2.8 GHz supporting the UHD Graphics, 4M L2 cache.

The last of the desktop is the Celeron N4505 with two cores and two threads at 2.0GHz, and the maximal quad-core turbo core burst to 2.9 GHz supporting the UHD Graphics, 4M L2 cache.

Mobile 6W TDP

Mobile Tremont based SKUs will have a TDP of 6W that leaves the option for even a fanless design. The top of the line is the Pentium Silver N6000 with four cores and four threads clocked at 1.1GHz and maximal quad-core bursts of healthy 3.1GHz supporting the same UHD Graphics and 4M L2 cache.

The runner up is the Celeron N5100 with four cores and four threads at 1.1GHz and maximal quad-core bursts of healthy 3.1GHz supporting the same UHD Graphics and 4M L2 cache.

The last of the list of 10nm new mobile 6W Tremont CPUs is the Celeron N4500 with two cores and two threads at 1.1GHz and maximal quad-core bursts of 2.8 GHz supporting the same UHD Graphics and 4M L2 cache.
