Intel Bay Trail processor are found in low cost tablets, laptops and mini PCs with prices starting as low as $60 for retail products. The company has introduced Braswell some time ago, the successor of Bay Trail, which among other thigns brings 14nm process technology instead of 22nm, for even lower power consumption. CPU World has noticed Intel listed the first four low power Braswell processor using Celeron and Pentium branding and with 6W TDP max.
We only know a few details about the new processor
- Celeron N3000 – Dual core CPU @ 1.04 GHz (Burst: 2.08 GHz) with 1MB L2 cache, 4W TDP
- Celeron N3050 – Dual core CPU @ 1.6 GHz (Burst: 2.16 GHz) with 1MB L2 cache, 6W TDP
- Celeron N3150 – Quad-core CPU @ 1.6 GHz (Burst: 2.08 GHz) with 2MB L2 cache, 6W TDP
- Pentium N3700 – Quad-core CPU @ 1.6 GHz (Burst: 2.40 GHz) with 2MB L2 cache, 6W TDP
All four processor come with Intel HD Gen8 graphics with different clock speed, and support DDR3 up to 1600 MHz. Listed prices are $107 for Celeron processors and $161 for the Pentium processor, but in my experience price indicated are way off to what manufacturers are actually paying. The four processor above won’t be an alternative to the cheap Z3735F/G Bay Trail-T processor, but are likely an upgrade to the Bay Trail-M (N2800/N2900 series) processor found in products like ECS LIVA or Gigabyte BRIX GB-BXBT-2807.

These processors don’t have integrated LAN. You can find more specs here:
Since they all have PCIe ports, this may not be that much of an issue though. Just adding to the cost.
Braswell stepping with higher burst frequencies:
Celeron N3050 -> Celeron J3060
Celeron N3150 -> Celeron J3160
Pentium N3700 -> Pentium J3710
