Intel decided to discontinue the series processors Gemini Lake first generation and finally send them on a holiday. The news is not unexpected, since Intel introduced the updated chips Gemini Lake Refresh back in October of last year.
The debut of the processors Gemini Lake was held in 2017. the Series consists of power-efficient chips designed for use in devices (laptops, desktops and All-In-One systems) available price segment. These processors are built on Intel Goldmont micro architecture Plus and are based on 14-nm production process.
A family of Gemini Lake consists mainly of Silver Pentium and Celeron processors, offering up to four cores without support Hyper-Threading technology. The value of the base frequency of the chip ranges from 1.1 to 2 GHz, and a maximum of 2.4 to 2.8 GHz. Regardless of the model chips equipped with a 4 MB cache second level. The TDP of these processors varies depending on the specific model and ranges from 6 to 10 watts.
Intel plans to stop taking orders on the model of Pentium Gemini Lake on 23 October 2020, and the last delivery of these processors will take place no later than 2 April 2021-th. On the other hand, the company gives more time for your models of the Celeron-generation Gemini Lake. Orders for them will be accepted until January 22, 2021, and the last delivery Intel will hold not later than 9 July of the same year.
Processors Refresh Gemini Lake Gemini Lake differ from the first generation of first clock frequencies. Their maximum value is slightly increased and ranges from 2.6 to 3.2 GHz depending on the model. They are built on the same 14-nm process technology and have the range of the TDP, as the chips of the previous generation.
