Intel describes six Apollo Lake chips

Intel has published online the first information on six upcoming Apollo Lake chips. This is the first piece of more detailed information on the new CPU family although it is not as detailed as we would like it to be. Besides, the published information is more or less designed for Intel employees so there isn’t really a way for outside people to get more information.

Anyway, the six upcoming chips will include two Pentium models (J4205 and N4200) and four Celeron models (J3355, J3455, N3450 and N3350). Unfortunately there’s virtually no information on the tech specs of the upcoming processors so we can tell you nothing of clock speeds, the number of cores or the amount of cache memory. Apollo Lake should not disappoint though – the chip generation is expected to be around 30 per cent faster in CPU and GPU performance than the older Braswell generation.

The production of the new Intel Apollo Lake processors will start in July and the first devices on the new chips will arrive a few months later.
