Intel Celeron 6305 and Pentium Gold 7505 Tiger Lake Processors Launched

Intel launched various Core i3/i5/i7 Tiger Lake processors in early September, shortly followed by more Core i3/i5/i7 UP3  Tiger Lake Embedded SoCs, so I was a little confused when Congatec launched a Tiger Lake COM Express module with of choice of processors including the usual Core processor plus an unnamed Celeron Tiger Lake processor because none were listed in Intel Ark.

But a few weeks have passed, and there are now three new Celeron and Pentium Tiger Lake processors in the list namely: Pentium Gold 7505, Celeron 6305, and Celeron 6305E with the later optimized for embedded & IoT applications with a wider temperature range from 0 to 100°C.

Celeron Pentium Tiger Lake processors

All three processors come with a 15W TDP and are manufactured using Intel’s 10nm process. As we can see from the table below both Celeron 6305 and Celeron 6305E have the exact same key features.

Celeron 6305EIntel UHD Graphics 2/2484MBDDR4-3200 or LPDDR4x-3733

The main difference between the Celeron and Pentium part is that the latter supports Hyperthreading and Turbo boost. All three processors support Intel SSE4.1/SSE4.2, and Intel AVX2 making it the first Pentium/Celeron SKUs to support AVX2 instructions. I’ve also been told they support AV1 hardware decoding like all other Tiger Lake processors.

You can find the full comparison on Intel Ark, but some of the information is unclear, as for instance both Tiger Lake Pentium Gold 7505 and Celeron 6305 SKUs are said to have a 15W configurable TDP up, while Celeron 6305E has a 15W TDP (not up), so there may be some inaccuracies.

Looks nice. Seeing as though they added AVX2 it would be interesting to see if they added support for HDR video.

HDR support was already available on Gen9/Gen9.5 graphics

not true, HDR was only in core i3 and higher not pentium or celeron processors.

Gemini Lake (Gen9.5) Celerons support HDR since kernel 5.3. There are LibreELEC test builds with working HDR on Gemini Lake.
