Intel Celeron J4105 vs Intel Celeron N4020

Intel Celeron J4105

► remove Intel Celeron J4105

The Intel Celeron J4105 is a quad-core desktop SoC primarily for mini PCs and mini ITX mainboards. It runs at 1.5 - 2.5 GHz (Single Core Burst) and is based on the Gemini Lake platform. Similar to the Apollo Lake predecessor, the chip is manufactured in a 14 nm process with FinFETs but offers slightly improved processor cores, double the amount of L2 cache, a smaller package, a new generation of monitor outputs (Gen 10) and a partly integrated WiFi chip. Besides four CPU cores, the chip also includes a DirectX 12 capable GPU as well as a DDR4/LPDDR4 memory controller (dual-channel, up to 2400 MHz). The SoC is not replaceable as it is directly soldered to the mainboard.

Architecture

The processor architecture was slightly reworked and is now called Goldmont Plus. It features an increased level 2 cache (to 4 MB). That means the per-clock-performance should be a bit better, but not near the Core CPUs like Kaby Lake Y.

Intel Celeron N4020

► remove Intel Celeron N4020

The Intel Celeron N4020 is a dual-core SoC primarily for inexpensive notebooks and was announced late 2019. It runs at 1.1-2.8 GHz (Single Core Burst) and is based on the Gemini Lake (refresh) platform. Compared to the predecessor, the Celeron N4000, the refresh offers a 200 MHz higher Boost clock.

Similar to the Apollo Lake predecessors, the chip is manufactured in a 14 nm process with FinFETs but offers slightly improved processor cores, double the amount of L2 cache, a smaller package, a new generation of monitor outputs (Gen 10) and a partly integrated WiFi chip. Besides two CPU cores, the chip also includes a DirectX 12 capable GPU as well as a DDR4/LPDDR4 memory controller (dual-channel, up to 2400 MHz). The SoC is not replaceable as it is directly soldered to the mainboard.

Architecture

The processor architecture ist still called Goldmont Plus. Compared to the older Goldmont cores in Apollo Lake, they feature an increased level 2 cache (to 4 MB). That means the per-clock-performance should be a bit better, but not near the Core CPUs like Kaby Lake Y.

Performance

The CPU performance of the Celeron N4020 should be slightly better than the old Celeron N4000 thanks to the 200 MHz higher boost clock (at least for single core load). The similar called N4120 offers already 4 cores and is therefore a lot faster in multithreaded usage. Compared to the more expensive Core Y processors, especially the single thread performance is much lower in the Gemini Lake based SoCs. Still for basic tasks like office suits, browsing with light multitasking the processor performance should be fine.

GPU Performance

The UHD Graphics 600 (Gemini Lake) is based on Intel's Gen9 architecture, which supports DirectX 12 and is also used for the Kaby Lake / Skylake / Apollo Lake graphics adapters (like HD Graphics 520). Equipped with 12 EUs and a clock of up to 650 MHz, the performance should be roughly on par with the older HD Graphics 500 (Apollo Lake).

The chip also includes an advanced video engine with hardware support for the playback of VP9 and H.265 material (8-bit color-depth).

Power Consumption

Similar to the predecessor, Intel specifies the TDP with 6 Watts (SDP 4.8 Watts – Scenario Design Power). The chip can therefore be cooled passively in theory, but SKUs with fans are possible as well.
