The four leaked models include two Celeron and two Pentium Gold processors that only feature two cores and have a 54 W TDP. April is most likely the month when these will be officially launched with prices below US$100.

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.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
