Intel Celeron N5095
The Intel Celeron N5095 is a quad-core SoC of the Jasper Lake product family designed for affordable SFF desktops and laptops. The Celeron was announced in early 2021. It has four Tremont CPU cores running at 2 GHz (base frequency) to Boosting up to 2.9 GHz (single-core Boost) with 1.5 MB of L2 and 4 MB of L3 cache but no Hyper-Threading support. Just like the Ice Lake-U processors, the N5095 is manufactured on the first-gen 10 nm Intel process. The faster Celeron N5105 is more energy efficient with its 10 W TDP (vs the 15 W of the N5095) yet features a faster iGPU (24 EUs versus 16 EUs, and they are clocked 50 MHz higher).
The Tremont processor architecture is a complete redesign and not an iteration of the Golmont architecture found in the Gemini Lake processors such as the Pentium N5030. According to Intel, the single thread performance has seen an up to 30% increase (at +10% to +80% in SPECint and SPECfp depending on the test).
The Celeron is compatible with up to 16 GB of DDR4-2933 or LPDDR4x-2933 dual-channel RAM according to the official spec sheet. The Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) support is partially baked into the chip. N5095 supports up to 8 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes, up to 14 USB 2.0/3.2 ports and up to two SATA III ports. The newer package is bigger at 35 x 24 mm versus 25 x 24 mm for Gemini Lake family processors. A N5095 gets soldered straight on to the motherboard (BGA1338 socket) and is extremely hard to replace.
The cooling system performance as well as the TDP settings will have a huge impact on the Boost sustainability, directly influencing the CPU performance. The N5095 CPU should be slightly faster than the older Pentium N5030 thanks to the CPU architecture improvements and the higher wattage. The Athlon 3050e is likely to be slower than the Celeron, too. The Pentium N6000 on the other hand has higher clock speeds and a faster iGPU so it will be ahead of N5095 in most tests. We expect the Celeron to lag behind quad-core Core i3/i5/i7 processors of Tiger Lake-U and Ice Lake-U families despite the architectural improvements. All in all, the CPU is a good choice for basic tasks such as word processing and web browsing.
In addition to the four CPU cores, the SoC features the DirectX 12-capable UHD Graphics (16 EUs) iGPU clocked at 450 MHz to 750 MHz. We expect the graphics adapter to deliver gaming performance that is close to UHD Graphics 620. While not a gaming GPU by any stretch of imagination, the UHD Graphics is capable of driving up to 3 displays with resolutions up to 4096x2160. It will have little trouble HW-decoding the AVC, HEVC, VP9 video streams but not the AV1.
While most Celeron N and Pentium N processors have a 6 W TDP, the Celeron has a 15 Watt TDP not unlike the faster U-series Core i3/i5/i7 processors. Performance sustainability is likely to be an issue in passively-cooled setups which could make the CPU unpopular among the laptop manufacturers.
