The network gives us the first technical details about the Gemini Lake generation, which comes to replace the Apollo Lake Really soon
Intel may have abandoned its ambitions to capture the smartphone and tablet market through its atomic architecture for generations, but that doesn't mean it has abandoned the platform itself - the company is convinced that there are still a variety of manufacturers and consumers who would be interested in desktops and laptops with the minimum reasonable processing power, Minimum price accordingly, and plan to satisfy the demand with a new generation called Gemini Lake.
The new family of atomic processors is due to arrive in the market for the next six months, bringing with it a number of small lines. At its core it will continue to be based on two and four physical processing cores in a 14 nanometer, along with a built-Skylake 12 and 18 processing clusters (12 for dual-core and ultra-thin cores and 18 for advanced and slightly more expensive cores), with processing core defined as Goldmont Plus, and will probably offer slightly improved working frequencies compared to the Apollo Lake generation Current, and even memory L2 double-volume cache of 4 megabytes, compared to only 2 megabytes in the past.
Switching to a memory controller with a single 32 bit channel that supports X-DDR4 And the LPDDR4 will enable products based on Gemini Lake to enjoy faster and more cost-effective dynamic memory, while combining 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 Wi-Fi connectivity in the same basic chassis chip The processing itself is supposed to make these computers even cheaper. Add built-in support for the latest HDMI 2.0 standard, and you get an interesting assembly for power consumption of between 4 watts and 6 watts in products Mobile And 10 watts in fixed products.
Gemini Lake appears to be the third minor enhancement of the Atom family since the long awaited jump to the 14 nanometer that replaced the popular Bay Trail family, but we assume that such slow progress is superior to standing in a market where there are no real plans to direct competition pillbox AMD, And the world-ARM Relevant only to some operating systems but not to Windows or Linux.
Perhaps after the arrival of Windows computers based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 we will begin to see plans for a more significant change in materialism Intel, But until then, we'll also be happy for ten or twenty percent improvement in the new atomic generation, and we'll let you know when we know more.
