Intel Gemini Lake processors were first introduced in 2017, and we’ve gotten some interesting low-power mini PCs as well as SBCs such as ODROID-H2, albeit it was not with troubles since the processors were unavailable for several months.
Production of Gemini Lake processors resumed a few months ago, and now the company has announced Gemini Lake Refresh family with 6 new processors.
This includes three 6W mobile “N-series” processors…
… and three 10W desktop “J-series” processors.
- Celeron N4000 – Dual-core processor @ 1.1 GHz (base) /2.6 GHz (boost)
- Celeron N4020 – Dual-core processors @ 1.1 GHz /2.8 GHz
- Celeron N4100 – Quad-core processor @ 1.1 GHz /2.4 GHz
- Celeron N4120 – Quad-core processor @ 1.1 GHz /2.6 GHz
- Pentium Silver N5000 – Quad-core processor @ 1.1 GHz /2.7 GHz
- Pentium Silver N5030 – Quad-core processor @ 1.1 GHz /3.1 GHz
- Celeron J4005 – Dual-core processor @ 2.0 GHz /2.7 GHz
- Celeron J4025 – Dual-core processor @ 2.0 GHz /2.9 GHz
- Celeron J4105 – Quad-core processor @ 1.5 GHz /2.5 GHz
- Celeron J4125 – Quad-core processor @ 2.0 GHz /2.7 GHz
- Pentium Silver J5005 – Quad-core processor @ 1.5 GHz /2.8 GHz
- Pentium Silver J5040 – Quad-core processor @ 2.0 GHz /3.2 GHz
Most processors only get a slight increase in boost frequency, so performance improvements should be minimal. Celeron J4125 and Pentium Silver J5040 processor should get a bigger boost since base frequency went up to 2.0 GHz. As far as I can tell, the GPU frequency and all other key features remain unchanged.
