Intel Unveils New Braswell Processors: Celeron J3060, J3160, and Pentium J3710
Intel is preparing to update its range of Braswell processors with the introduction of new Celeron J3060, J3160 and Pentium J3710. The update is basically a new stepping, which adjusts the power consumption, and the maximum frequency, optimizing the overall performance of the chip.
The new SKUs enhance Intel Atom line of desktop-embedded processors that use Cherry Trail cores. The first difference we see is related to the names of these new Braswell parts, which change from the letter N to J, with the addition of a model number increased by 10. Then comes the TDP of these solutions which ranges from 6 to 6.5 watts, compared to the previous N lineup having a TDP of 4 or 6 watts.
Among the Celeron includes the model J3060 which is a dual-core processor, operating between 1.6 and 2.48 GHz. It has 1 MB of L2 cache, TDP of 6W and integrated Intel graphics card HD 400. The Celeron J3160 is instead a quad-core processor that can operate between 1.6 and 2.24 GHz. Under the hood, it packs 2 MB of L2 cache, TDP of 6W and re-GPU HD Graphics 400.
Next in line is the Pentium J3710, which is also a quad-core with maximum operating frequency of 2.6GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, slightly higher TDP of 6.5W and a more powerful Intel HD 405 on board.
The first bulk shipments of these chips will start from January 15th 2016. Details regarding prices are not revealed yet.
