Intel’s upcoming Atom & Pentium series of CPU code-named Apollo lake to be 30% faster
Apollo Lake SoCs will feature Intel’s new Goldmont cores. Intel has previously indicated that end users would enjoy both better performance and efficiency but this is the first time it has put numbers behind those claims. As you can see from the Chinese language slide above, with machine translation superimposed, the new Apollo Lake SoCs provide:
- A 30 per cent improvement in CPU performance compared to Cherrytrail / Braswell parts
- A new GPU architecture (Intel Gen9) delivering 30 per cent better performance than Braswell
- Flexible support for RAM, DDR3L, LPDDR3, and LPDDR4 memory are options for manufacturers
- Better battery life, with a claimed 15 per cent longer life compared to Braswell
The first new low-power, low-cost Apollo Lake chips are expected to start appearing in devices in H2 this year. Just like predecessors these will be branded as Intel Celeron and Pentium N chips and are likely to feature mainly in lower cost laptops, Chromebooks, and 2-in-1s.
