KODLIX Mini PC Comes with Celeron N4000/N4100 or Pentium Silver N5000 Gemini Lake Processor, Supports Up to 16GB RAM

Gemini Lake mini PC announcement keep on coming, with the latest from Plater Electronics which showcased their KODLIX Gemini Lake mini PC at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair 2018.

What makes this model interesting is that beside the usual Celeron N4000/N4100 dual/quad core processor, it also offers the most powerful yet less common Pentium Silver N5000, and support for up to 16GB RAM via two SO-DIMM slots despite competitors and motherboards manufacturers claiming a maximum of 8GB on their Gemini Lake hardware, even two memory slots are available.

Specifications:

  • SoC
    • Intel Celeron N4000 dual core processor @ 1.10/2.60 GHz with Intel UHD Graphics 600; 6W TDP
    • Intel Celeron N4100 quad core processor @  1.10/2.40 GHz with Intel UHD Graphics 600; 6W TDP
    • Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad core processor @ 1.10/2.70 GHz with Intel UHD Graphics 605; 6W TDP
  • System Memory – 2x DDR4 or LPDDR4 SO-DIMM slots up to 16GB
  • Storage – 32/64/128/256 GB flash; 2.5″ SATA slot for HDD or SSD, micro SD slot
  • Display – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K @ 60 Hz, VGA
  • Audio – 3.5mm audio jack, digital audio via HDMI
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, dual band 802.11 b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2

The HDD / SSD bay is located right under the enclosure and secured with two screws. The mini PC can run Windows 10 or Linux, but it’s unclear whether the company will ship the device with Linux pre-installed. NotebookItalia was at the exhibition, filmed a short video of the computer, and mentioned sales are slated to start in May at an undisclosed price.

Celeron’s are a waste of the silicon they are made of.

These should technically be Atom’s, Intel just decided to “upgrade” the naming…

“Memory Specifications
Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type): 8 GB” at Intel’s specs for N5000

They should use dual-channel technology to reach 16GB.

If you consider that the old Atom x5/x7 chips supported more RAM than Intel specified, this most likely has nothing to do with dual channel or not. Intel often doesn’t officially support a lot of things that still work. Take memory speeds on desktop PCs as an example. Officially Intel only supports DDR4-2666, yet it’s no problem to run DDR4-3200 or even faster in many consumer motherboards, as long as the motherboard manufacturer has implemented it on a UEFI level.

However, for practical testing, the advantages of dual-channel will be even more advanced.

“Pepper Jobs” N41-C2V mini PC is the most interesting Gemini Lake mini PC so far, because it enables the user to add RAM:
