Alder Lake Comes To The Mighty Pentium Gold, Celeron CPUs

    2 new Intel cpus will arrive on the marketplace soon inning accordance with Twitter user and known equipment leaker @momomo_us. There is no indicator whether these 2 unreleased chips come from the chipmaker’s newest Alder Lake family or simply another Comet Lake revitalize. However, the specs insinuate the previous.

    The last Pentium Gold or Celeron cpu was from Intel’s 10th Generation Comet Lake schedule. With Rocket Lake, the chipmaker didn’t introduce any Core i3 and below SKUs, but preferred to rewarm its Comet Lake chips with a small clock speed bumps. Presumably that Intel may finally give the entry-level cpus a a lot needed renovation.

    It appears that the Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G6900 are the direct replacements for the Pentium Gold 6400 and Celeron G5900, specifically. Because of this, these cpu should retain the exact same core setups as their precursors. The Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G5900 will likely feature a dual-core configuration with the first showing up with Hyper-Threading and the last without.

    Core i3 models and some Core i5 variations do not take advantage of Alder Lake’s crossbreed microarchitecture, meaning they just sporting activity the Gold Cove (Efficiency) cores. The Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G5900 will do the same.

    *Specifications are unconfirmed.

    The clock rates and L3 cache suggest that the Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G6900 should not be a Comet Lake revitalize. The Pentium Gold G7400 has a 300 MHz lower base clock compared to the current Pentium Gold G6400, while the Celeron G6900 protects the exact same 3.4 GHz base clock as the Celeron G5900. If the unannounced cpus were a revitalize, they should be showing off improve clock rates.

    Another aspect that does not accumulate is quantity of L3 cache. The Pentium Gold G6400 and Celeron G5900 have a 4MB and 2MB L3 cache, specifically. The Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G6900, on the various other hand, uses a various cache setup. Presuming that the Canadian retailer’s specs are spot on, the Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G6900 are equipped with 6MB and 4MB of L3 cache, specifically, a significant increase over the Comet Lake models.

    Inning accordance with the seller listings, the section numbers for the Pentium Gold G7400 and Celeron G5900 begin with “BX80715,”, the exact same string that Intel uses for its various other Alder Lake components. The chipmaker uses “BX80708” for Rocket Lake and “BX80701” for Comet Lake.

    Intel intelligently introduce Alder Lake K-series cpus first, while conserving the cheaper SKUs for a later on phase in time. The chipmaker has confirmed that the non-K chips should arrive very early 2022, therefore, the Pentium Gold G6400 and Celeron G5900 are probably patch of the second batch.
