Intel Atlas Canyon NUC to feature Jasper Lake J-Series processors (Leak)

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:

  • SoC
    • 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
  • Video Output
    • 1x HDMI 2.0b port, 1x DisplayPort 1.4 port with HDCP 2.2 support for both ports
    • Up to 2 4K displays
  • Audio
    • Up to 7.1 multichannel audio via HDMI
    • 3.5mm audio stereo output jack, 3.5mm microphone jack
  • Connectivity
    • Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port
    • Intel AX101 M.2 card for WiFI 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 with audio off-load, internal antennas
  • USB – 4x USB 3.1 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc – Kensington lock
  • Power Supply – 19V DC (65W) with geo-specific C5 AC cords
  • Dimensions – 135 x 115 x 36 mm

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.

  1. If the speed of new gen is same as prev. gen. OMG 🙁
    no Xe GPU
    they don’t change max/base CPU clock
    zero inovation
    Intel you are pure garbage!

    1. The new gen will be faster (as in Gemini Lake vs Jasper Lake). What I talked about in the last part of the article was Jasper Lake N-Series vs Jasper Lake J-Series. I think there may some mistakes in the leak, because it does not make any sense that the N-Series and J-Series are basically the same .

          1. J usually has CPU max by 100 MHz more and GPU by 50 MHz more. Does not sound like much but it does make a difference.

          2. I also wonder how these Jasper Celeron J compare to the two Elkhart Celeron J INTEL released in Jan 2021.

          3. As I understand it, Jasper Lake targets consumer products, while Elkhart Lake is for Embedded/IIoT. So they’d probably has similar performance. although industrial-grade parts are often clocked lower to support a wider temperature range.

          4. The 4W difference describes a consumption difference at base clock and not in burst mode. So it’s not ‘100 Mhz more’ but as follows when talking about CPU cores and TDP:

            Celeron N4100 vs. J4105: 1.1 GHz vs. 1.5 GHz
            Celeron N4120 vs. J4125: 1.1 GHz vs. 2.0 GHz

    2. Well, that’s not exactly true. The Jasper Lake family has like 20-30% more IPC than previous generation, plus the iGPU huge improvement…that is something to count. My only hope is to start seeing mini PC’s in the range of 100-150€, as those dual core are perfect for emulation up to wii.

      1. Board only, like the Odroid H2+ (out of stock for a few months) yes. Board + memory + storage + case, no unless you find an extreme good opportunity on eBay or alike. Don’t count on it though.

      2. Do you really trust intel about rise of IPC 20-30%?
        I don’t think so
        ok they change 14nm to 10nm so better for intel

        1. Why not? it’s been a while since they didn’t release any real improvements in their Celeron / Pentium family. The J5040 from last year was just an improvement in clock, not anything else. This time they moved generation along with fab, so it’s expected that the IPC is being increased by that much. It would not make any sense that reducing from 14nm to 10nm would end in the same power consumption if there are no improvements, it just makes no sense, as the clocks of J5040 are practically same as the ones found in J6005.

  2. So the most direct predecessor is the NUC8CCHK right? Really happy to see a low wattage, socketed WiFi module, M.2 SSD capable option. The only thing more I could ask for would be proper vPro/TPM support for remote deployment/management.
    I would even like to try this as a NAS head.
    Syba/IOCrest has an M.2 to 5-port SATA HBA (SI-ADA40141) That I’d love to mount to this board and a 5 drive carrier.Load Proxmox or ESXi, bam! instant Storage node.

    1. Possibly more of a successor to the NUC7PJYH/NUC7CJYH models based on the CPU options and configurable memory but incorporating some of the looks/form-factor of the NUC8CCHK given it will be larger than a typical NUC which is a direction I’m not keen on.
