Intel Pentium Silver N5000 “Gemini Lake” Notebook Shows Up in Benchmarks

Orange Pi Development Boards

We all know that Gemini Lake processors will succeed Apollo Lake family, we have a good idea of the supported features. and even know that Intel is expecting 10 to 15% CPU integer performance improvement between the two generations. I’ve now been informed that an Intel Gemini Lake notebook powered by Intel Pentium “Silver” N5000 quad core processor clocked at 1.09 GHz was spotted in SiSoftware Sandra benchmark database.

If we compare those results to the ones for Intel Pentium N4200 Apollo Lake processor with the same 1.1 GHz base frequency, we can indeed see some progress, and the results, albeit early, are quite encouraging, except for the GPU part with similar results.

Intel Pentium N5000 Intel Pentium N4200 Delta
Processor Arithmetic 31.11 GOPS 21.42 GOPS 1.45x
Processor Multi-Media 44.65 MPix/s 41.38 MPix/s 1.08x
.NET Arithmetic 11.5 GOPS 7.31 GOPS 1.57x
Processor Crypto 2.8 GB/s 1.41 GB/s 1.99x

It’s quite possible to turbo frequency is higher in the Gemini Lake processor, but I could not find any details about this yet.

nice! I hope these run Linux OK. There’s fair evidence that Apollo Lake can run it well, better than Cherry Trail. Let’s not mention Bay Trail 🙁

If they get the price right then this should be a very successful SOC and if they tie WiFi and BT down and produce some decent drivers then the sky might be the limit.

GPU might be same with just higher clocks, quite let down. L2 4Mb upgrade is most important, simply improved performance.

Rest than multimedia, scores are improved somehow much.

Also note DDR4

I hope for the Intel Pentium 9000 😉
