Intel has silently added four new CPUs to its lineup, all based on the Braswell microprocessor architecture.
The new Braswell architecture CPUs bring greater CPU and Graphics performance over the previous generation entry-level CPUs from Intel while offering lower consumption and lower TDP. The four new CPUs unveiled by Intel include the Celeron N3000, N3050, N3150, and the Pentium N3700. All four are 14nm chips and feature Airmont processing cores.
The Celeron N3000 is a dual-core processor with a base frequency of 1.04GHz and Turbo Boost speed of 2.08GHz. It comes with 1MB L2 cache, Gen 8-LP graphics, DDR3-1600 memory support and a 4W TDP. Next up is the Celeron N3050. It too is a dual-core chip but features a higher clock speed of 1.6GHz and Turbo Boost up to 2.16GHz. The rest of the specs are similar, except for a slightly higher 6W TDP rating.
The Celeron N3150 and the Pentium N3700 are quad-core chips with 2MB L2 cache and 6W TDP rating. Both feature the same base frequency of 1.6GHz but offer different Turbo Boost speeds. The Celeron N3150 has a Turbo Boost frequency of 2.08GHz while the Pentium N3700 offers a higher 2.4GHz Turbo Boost clock.
