Intel Celeron N4500 vs Intel Celeron N5100 vs Intel Celeron N5095
Intel Celeron N4500► remove from comparison
The Intel Celeron N4500 is a dual-core SoC of the Jasper Lake series that is primarily intended for inexpensive notebooks and was announced in early 2021. The two Tremont CPU cores clock between 1.1 and 2.8 GHz (single core Burst) and offer no HyperThreading. The N4500 uses 1.5 MB L2 and 4 MB L3 cache. The chip is manufactured on the first-gen 10 nm Intel process.
The processor architecture is called Tremont and a complete redesign compared to the old Golmont Plus cores in the predecessor. According to Intel, the single thread performance of a core could is up two 30% better on average (10 - 80% in all tests of SPECint and SPECfp).
In addition to the dual-core CPU block, the SoC integrates a 16 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU clocked from 350 - 750 MHz and a dual-channel DDR4 / quad-channel LPDDR4(x) memory controller (up to 16 GB, up to 2933 MHz). The chip now also partly integrates Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 14 USB 2.0/ 3.2 ports and two SATA 6.0 ports. The package got bigger and measures 35 x 24 mm (compared to 25 x 24 mm for the N5030 e.g.). The SoC is directly soldered to the mainboard (BGA) and can't be easily replaced.
The average N4500 in our database shapes up to be a very slow processor, its multi-thread benchmark scores only just matching those of Intel Core i3-4010U. (The latter saw the light of day in 2013 as a lower mid-range, dual-core CPU designed for use in ultraportable laptops.) In other words, expect the Celeron to be painfully slow in all but the most basic activities such as writing work-related e-mails.
Just like nearly all other N-class Intel processors, the Celeron has a default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit) of 6 W. This is low and thus good enough for passively cooled tablets, laptops, mini-PCs.
This Intel CPU is built with Intel's first-generation 10 nm process for average, as of early 2023, energy efficiency.
Intel Celeron N5100► remove from comparison
The Intel Celeron N5100 is a quad-core SoC of the Jasper Lake series that is primarily intended for inexpensive notebooks and was announced in early 2021. The four Tremont CPU cores clock between 1.1 and 2.8 GHz (single core Burst) and offer no HyperThreading (SMT). The N5100 uses 1.5 MB L2 and 4 MB L3 cache. The chip is manufactured in 10nm at Intel (most likely in the same process as Ice Lake).
The processor architecture is called Tremont and a complete redesign compared to the old Golmont Plus cores in the predecessor. According to Intel, the single thread performance of a core could be improved by 30% on average (10 - 80% in all tests of SPECint and SPECfp).
In addition to the quad-core CPU block, the SoC integrates a 24 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU clocked from 350 - 800 MHz and a LPDDR4(x) dual channel memory controller (up to 16 GB and 2933 MHz). The chip now also partly integrates Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 14 USB 2.0/ 3.2 ports and two SATA 6.0 ports. The package got bigger and measures 35 x 24 mm (compared to 25 x 24 mm for the N5030 e.g.). The SoC is directly soldered to the mainboard (BGA) and can't be easily replaced.
Thanks to the new CPU architecture, the performance of the N5100 should be slightly faster compared to the old Pentium N5030. The Pentium N6000 however offers clearly higher clock speeds and also a faster gPU. However, it should still lag behind modern Core processors of the Tiger Lake generation. Therefore, the CPU is intended for basic tasks like office suits, web browsing with moderate multitasking.
Just like most other N-class Intel processors, the Celeron has a 6 W default TDP (also known as the long-term power limit). This is rather low; a small metal plate is all it takes to dissipate heat generated by such a CPU.

Intel Celeron N5095► remove from comparison
The Intel Celeron N5095 is a quad-core SoC of the Jasper Lake product family designed for use in affordable SFF desktops and laptops. The Celeron was announced in early 2021. It features four Tremont CPU cores running at 2 GHz (base clock speed) Boosting up to 2.9 GHz (single-core Boost) with 1.5 MB of L2 and 4 MB of L3 cache but no thread-doubling Hyper-Threading technology. This processor is manufactured on Intel's first-gen 10 nm process to be not unlike the Ice Lake-U Core-series processors. The faster Celeron N5105 is notable for being more energy efficient (10 W TDP vs N5095's 15 W) yet featuring a faster iGPU model (24 EU UHD Graphics versus 16 EU UHD Graphics, with a higher clock rate to boot).
Tremont architecture brings many improvements over the outgoing Goldmont architecture we know from Pentium N5030 and so many other N-class CPUs. According to Intel, the new architecture brings a 30% boost in single thread performance (+10% to +80% in SPECint and SPECfp depending on the test).
While the older N-class Celerons and Pentiums had to be content with up to 8 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, Celeron N5095 is officially compatible with up to 16 GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 or quad-channel LPDDR4x-2933 memory. Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) support is partially baked into the chip. The Celeron supports up to 8 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes, up to 14 USB 3.2 ports and up to two SATA III ports. Four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes allow for read/write rates of up to 3.9 GB/s, provided a suitably fast NVMe SSD is used.
Jasper Lake processor package is larger compared to what Gemini Lake models had (35 x 24 mm vs. 25 x 24 mm). Please note that the Celeron gets soldered on to the motherboard (BGA1338 socket interface) and is thus not user-replaceable.
The average N5095 in our database matches Intel Core i3-10110U, Core i3-1005G1, Celeron N5105 and AMD Ryzen 3 3200U, as far as multi-thread performance is concerned.
Even if the cooling system is great and the Power Limits are high as the sky, some slight architectural improvements together with the updated manufacturing node and higher-than-usual wattage of the Celeron are not nearly enough to let it compete with modern Core and Ryzen-series processors. It's a good option for basic day-to-day tasks, but anything beyond that will be a struggle.
The CPU features the DirectX 12-capable 16 EU UHD Graphics iGPU running at 450 MHz to 750 MHz. The graphics adapter is capable of driving up to 3 displays with resolutions up to [email protected]; it will happily decode HEVC, AVC, VP9, MPEG-2 and other popular video codecs. The latest AV1 codec is not supported, though. (You can still play such a video but it will be software-decoded rather than hardware-decoded which puts a hard limit on the watchable resolution as the CPU cores are not very fast here.)
This is not a gaming GPU by any stretch of imagination. It is just as fast as an HD Graphics 515; it will let you play the least demanding titles (like Dota 2 Reborn) provided you are OK with 720p resolution and lowest quality preset possible.
Most N-class Celerons and Pentiums have a 6 W TDP (also known as the Power Limit 1). Celeron N5095 on the other hand has a 15 Watt TDP to mimic much faster U-class Core i3/i5/i7 processors. Long-term performance sustainability is therefore destined to be an issue in passively cooled designs.
This Intel processor is manufactured on Intel's first-gen 10 nm process for OK (as of late 2022) energy efficiency.
