An authentic-looking block diagram revealing the key architectural features of Intel’s next-gen Gemini Lake chip has hit the Internet. As previously rumored the SoC, which is destined to carry the Celeron and Pentium brands, will offer native support for single-channel LPDDR4 RAM and HDMI 2.0.

What looks to be an authentic block diagram of Intel’s yet-to-be-released Gemini Lake SoC has surfaced. Although not one of Intel’s high-end chips, it will play a key role in the embedded 2-in-1 market when it launches in (expectedly) Q4 this year. The successor to the Apollo Lake series, the Gemini Lake chips will bring improved performance-per-watt thanks in large part to Intel moving fabrication to its new 14nm process. 

Importantly, Gemini Lake is also equipped with Intel’s Gen9LP GPU, with up to 18 execution units for improved graphics performance. While likely offering some hope for casual gamers and little else, it will be sufficient to drive high-resolution displays or monitors with native support for HDMI 2.0 also in tow. The block diagram also shows support for up to 5 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 OTG port. PCIe, SATA 3 and eMMC 5.1 interconnect is also on offer, although UFC support still seems elusive.

According to a previously leaked Intel roadmap, Gemini Lake chips will be formally announced and begin to appear in shipping devices sometime in Q4 2017.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
