A new leak purports to outline Intel's upcoming Jasper Lake-based range of processors
Jasper Lake may be the code-name for the next generation on from the Gemini Lake series of low-power Intel CPUs. It may be based on the new Tremont architecture, however, which is based on a 10-nanometer (nm) process. FanlessTech now asserts that it has heard about which SKUs this upcoming new line may offer.
The site also now claims that they will come in desktop and mobile flavors, with TDPs of 6 and 10 watts (W) respectively. With the exception of 2 new Celeron processors, distributed across both categories, they feature 4 cores with as many threads each. The "Jasper Lake CPUs" also now appear to have L2 caches of 4MB across the board.
FanlessTech refers to the graphics in all these cases as "UHD", thus possibly casting doubt on the possibility of Gen11 for this new series. More specifically, the new silicon is described as follows:
- Pentium Silver N6005: clocked at 2.0GHz up to 3.3GHz with max quad-core burst
- Celeron N5105: which is 2.0-2.8GHz with max quad core burst
- Celeron N4505: which has 2 cores and threads and runs at 2.0-2.9GHz thanks to max dual-core burst
- Pentium Silver N6000: 1.1 to 3.1GHz with max quad-core burst
- Celeron N5100: 1.1 up to 2.8GHz with the same kind of burst, and finally...
- Celeron N4500: a dual-core/thread offering clocked at 1.1-2.8GHz with max dual-core burst
Therefore, this leak may project the chipsets that may grace the budget mini PCs or notebooks that see a release in the first quarter of 2021. However, Intel has yet to do anything to confirm or deny such rumors at the time of writing.
