Intel Unveils Atom x6000E Series, Celeron and Pentium Elkhart Lake IoT Edge Processors

We’ve been expecting Intel Elkhart Lake processors for more than a year, and the company has now officially announced the “IoT-enhanced processors” with a new Atom x6000E Series, as well as some Celeron and Pentium N/J parts.

Last year, we thought Elkhart Lake would succeed Gemini lake, but the new 11th generation 10nm processors may not be found in many consumer devices, as they target IoT edge applications with additional artificial intelligence (AI), security, functional safety, and real-time capabilities.

The company has announced a total of 12 Elkhart Lake processors with all but one featuring 10th Generation Intel UHD Graphics and divided into eight Atom x6000E series processors.

Intel further explains Elkhart Lake IoT edge processors deliver up to two times better 3D graphics compared to Pentium J4205 Apollo Lake processor, come with Intel Programmable Services Engine real-time offload engine with support for out-of-band and in-band remote device management, integrated 2.5GbE time-sensitive networking, and enhanced I/O and storage options. The processors can support up to three displays up to 4Kp60 resolution.

The company also provides software tools such as Intel Edge Controls for Industrial and the OpenVINO AI toolkit to help customers develop their products based on the new Elkhart Lake IoT edge processors. Several 64-bit operating systems are being/have been ported to support Elkhart Lake processors namely Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, Ubuntu Linux, WindRiver Linux LTS, Android 10, as well as the Yocto Project to build highly-customized Linux distributions.

Typical use cases include industrial real-time control systems, industrial robots, vehicle controls, fleet monitoring, medical displays, as well as kiosks and points-of-sale for the retail and hospitality sector.

While the processors have just been announced, it will take a bit longer for the actual launch since availability is scheduled for Q1 2021 according to Intel Ark. The press release also states over 100 partners are committed to delivering Elkhart Lake solutions.

So if they may not be found in many consumer devices, is this essentially intel serving notice of them leaving a sector to ARM and maybe AMD?

Note that some of these include a real-time Arm Cortex-M7 core.
