Intel adds more Braswell chips to product list
The US chip maker Intel has expanded its Braswell SoC platform with four new processors. As you know Braswell is here to retire the current Bay Trail platform and to introduce the newest 14 nm processor production technology.
The new chip list includes three Celeron processors – Celeron N3000, N3050, N3150 – and one Pentium model – N3700. All chips are designed to run in entry level mobile computers and, except Celeron N3000, can run in desktop computers too.
Here’s some hard tech specs data – the Celeron N3000 and Celeron N3050 have two Airmont processing cores and 1 MB of L2 cache, while the Celeron N3150 and Pentium N3700 have four processing cores and 2 MB of L2 cache. All chips also have a DDR3-1600-enabled memory controller and Generation 8 LP graphics. In addition the chips have very low power consumption – the Celeron N3000 has TDP of 4 watts, while all other chips have TDP of 6 watts. The chips support all multimedia instructions up to SSE4.2 and include Intel 64 technology and Burst Performance. The Celeron N3000 runs at 1.04 GHz (2.08 GHz Turbo), while the Celeron N3050 runs at 1.6 GHz (2.16 GHz Turbo); the Celeron N3150 runs at 1.6 GHz (2.08 GHz Turbo) and finally the Pentium N3700 runs at 1.6 GHz (2.4 GHz Turbo). The GPU chip in these processors operates at 320 MHz, but can go up to 600 MHz (Celeron N3000 and Celeron N3050), 640 MHz (Celeron N3150) and 700 MHz (Pentium N3700).
All new Celeron processors are priced at USD 107, while the Pentium N3700 costs USD 161.
