Intel Jasper Lake N-series low-power processor family was introduced as an update to the Gemini Lake family last January, and the first Jasper Lake mini PC’s have just started to show up with mass production scheduled in mid-May.
But now, courtesy of FanlessTech, we have more information about Intel Atlas Canyon NUC that will be offered with a choice of three Jasper Lake processors, namely Pentium Silver J6005, Celeron J5105, and Celeron J4505, all of which are J-series, and have yet to be announced/listed on Intel Ark website.
Intel NUC 11 Essential “Atlas Canyon” specifications:
- NUC11ATKC2 – Intel Celeron J4505 dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz / 2.7 GHz (Burst) with Intel HD Graphics @ 750 MHz
- NUC11ATKC4 – Intel Celeron J5105 quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz / 2.9 GHz with Intel HD Graphics @ 800 MHz
- NUC11ATKPE – Intel Pentium Silver J6005 quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz / 3.3 GHz with Intel HD Graphics @ 900 MHz
- System Memory – Dual-channel DDR4-2933 SODIMMs up to 16GB RAM
- Storage – Optional 64GB eMMC flash, M.2 2280 key M slot for PCIe x4 NVME or SATA SSD

The mini PC will work with Windows 10 and various Linux distros, and Intel will offer various mounting options including picture frame keyholes, mounting indentations for cable ties, and VESA bracket, with the latter not included by default.
What is really odd in this leak is that the model number of the processors and CPU & GPU frequencies are the same as for the N-Series. So J4505 looks identical to N4505, J5105 to N5105, and J6005 to N6005.
It may take some time until we find out the difference, or whether its was just a typo, as FanlessTech reports Atlas Canyon won’t be available until Q1 2022 due to the current chip shortage.
