Intel Pentium Silver N6005

Intel Pentium N6005

The Intel Pentium Silver N6005 is a quad-core SoC of the Jasper Lake series that is primarily intended for inexpensive and small desktop and was announced in early 2021. The four Tremont CPU cores clock between 2 and 3.3 GHz (single core Burst) and offer no HyperThreading (SMT). The N6005 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).

CPU Architecture

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 32 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU clocked from 450 - 900 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 N6005 should be clearly better compared to the old Pentium N5030. 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.

Power Consumption

Similar to the predecessor, Intel specifies the TDP with 10 Watts (versus the 6 W of the mobile N6000). The chip can therefore be cooled passively in theory, but SKUs with fans are possible as well.
