Intel has emphasised that its latest Pentium, Celeron and Atom processors are ideal for the Internet of Things (IoT) use-cases of the near future. They are ultra-low-power CPUs that can still drive multiple 4K displays and are rated for twice the 3D graphics performance compared to their predecessors. They will start to become available in the first quarter of 2021.

Intel has unveiled 10-nanometer (nm) Elkhart Lake-series processors at its 2020 Industrial Summit. As such, the company now touts these newly-minted Atom x6000E, Pentium and Celeron chipsets as ideal for IoT of various industrial kinds.

The new Pentiums are referred to as their latest N and J series, even though there are only 1 of each: the N6415 and J6425. Similarly, Intel has also just introduced the Celeron J6413 and N6211. However, there are 8 new Atom x6000E variants. Collectively, they have TDPs of up to 12W (in the x6425RE, x6427FE and x6425E) and are clocked at 1GHz (x6200FE) to 1.9GHz (x6425RE and x6427FE).

The series as a whole is optimized for commercial use-cases with features such as Intel's Safety Island and Programmable Services Engine. However, they are also rated for triple 4K monitor set-ups and the performance for which the UHD Graphics platform for 10th-gen processors (if not Xe graphics as some leaks suggested). Intel now pitches them at IoT for the healthcare, retail, logistics and service industries.
