Details of four low-end Coffee Lake CPUs leaked on Amazon
The majority of the leaked CPU specs usually comes from benchmarks and internal company slides/roadmaps nowadays, but, more often than not, big online retailers get the opportunity to publish a few leaks of their own. One the most recent Intel CPU leak cases involves Amazon, which went ahead and disclosed specs for a few low-end Coffee Lake desktop CPUs, including two Celeron and two Pentium Gold models.
All four models feature a 54 W TDP and sport only two cores. However, the Pentium Gold processors feature hyperthreading, while the Celeron G chips do not. Since these are entry-level products, they do not benefit from boost frequencies. Here are the default frequencies for each model:
• Celeron G4900 – 3.1 GHz
• Celeron G4920 – 3.2 GHz
• Pentium Gold G5000 – 3.8 GHz
• Pentium Gold G5600 – 3.9 GHz
Prices for all these models should be under US$100, making them more affordable than AMD’s Ryzen 3 2200G CPUs that currently retail for US$100. The four leaked Intel CPUs will launch together with the budget-oriented 300-series H370/B360/H310 chipsets.
