Intel N100 & N200 Alder Lake-N SKUs could be the first “Intel Processor” processors

Intel recently announced they would kill the Celeron and Pentium brands for entry-level PCs, and replace these with the “Intel Processor” brand for notebooks from 2023 onwards, meaning we would get “Intel Core” and “Intel Processor” processors depending on the market segment.

The Intel N100 & N200, or more exactly the Intel Processor N100 and Processor N200, Alder Lake-N SKUs may be the first chips with the new branding. They were discovered by Coelacanth-Dream while looking at some Linux boot logs.

Intel Processor N200:

Both processors appear pretty similar but the boot logs show the N100 with an 800 MHz base frequency, and the N200 with a 1,000 MHz base frequency. Coelacanth-Dream further analyzed the data and found extra information about the Alder Lake-N processors as shown in the table below.

The new SKUs will not feature “big” Performance cores at all, and only be offered with up to eight “small” Efficiency cores, up to 32EU GT1 graphics, a 9-lane PCIe PCH, and a narrower 64-bit memory bus while the other Alder Lake families all sport a 128-bit memory bus. We’ll need to wait for an official announcement or more leaks to get additional details about the new parts.

While Intel has decided to do without Pentium and Celeron for notebooks, they may remain for IoT products, as I remember Intel killed the Atom brand for consumer-grade processors, but it is still used in some industrial processors. I personally find the new “Intel Processor” brand confusing, but Intel says the change was made to “streamline the brand architecture” and “simplify the purchasing experience”:

With this new, streamlined brand architecture, Intel will continue to sharpen its focus on its flagship brands:  Intel Core, Intel Evo and Intel vPro. In addition, this update streamlines brand offerings across PC segments to enable and enhance Intel customer communication on each product’s value proposition, while simplifying the purchasing experience for customers.

About Intel Processor: Intel Processor will serve as the brand name for multiple processor families, helping to simplify the product purchase experience for consumers. Intel will continue to deliver the same products and benefits within segments. The brand leaves unchanged Intel’s current product offerings and Intel’s product roadmap.

The good news is they won’t rename Pentium and Celeron processors that have already been released!
