The Intel Celeron N4500 is a dual-core SoC of the Jasper Lake series that is primarily intended for inexpensive and small desktops and was announced in early 2021. The two Tremont CPU cores clock between 2 and 2.9 GHz (single core Burst) and offer no HyperThreading (SMT). The N4505 uses 1.5 MB L2 and 4 MB L3 cache. The chip is built with Intel's first-gen 10 nm process, just like Ice Lake family processors.
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 dual-core CPU block, the SoC integrates a 16 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU clocked from 450 - 750 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.
The average N4505 in our database is just as fast as AMD's dual-core Athlon Silver 3050e and Intel's previous-gen Celeron N4100 in multi-thread loads. In other words, it is good for basic day-to-day activities but not much more than that.
Just like most other J-class Celeron and Pentium processors, this Celeron has a default TDP of 10 W (also known as the long-term Power Limit), making it a not-so-great option for passively cooled setups.
Celeron N4505 is manufactured on Intel's first-gen 10 nm process making for OK, as of late 2022, energy efficiency.
