Intel accelerates elimination of 14nm processor 4-core 6W Pentium/Saiyan decommissioning

In addition to the Ice Lake processor, which has a 10nm process in the notebook processor, Intel’s main chip is still the 14nm process, but Intel is already accelerating the phase-out of some 14nm processors. Intel recently notified The Gemini Lake series of processors to begin decommissioning EOL, a 6-10W TDP low-power processor. Gemini Lake (Gemini) was released at the end of 2017 to replace the 14nm Apollolake processor.

This is also Intel’s third generation 14nm processor on Atom, with a SoC single-chip design with a minimal package area and very low power consumption, with the first six models, including desktop and mobile platforms.

On the desktop platform, Gemini Lake has a maximum of 4 cores, 4MB L3 cache, frequency of up to 2.8GHz, TDP 6W to 10W, with silver Pentium and Celeron points depending on the specifications.

At the end of 2019, Intel introduced the Gemini Lake Refresh processor, primarily for frequency enhancements of 200-500MHz, but continues to use the Pentium brand, the Celeron sequence, divided into the J-Series, the N-Series, the former for entry desktop desktops and all-in-ones, and the latter for low-cost notebooks, tablets and other portable devices.

The fate of the Gemini Lake series de-listing was sealed after the release of Gemini Lake Refres. Today Intel announced that the 14nm Gemini Lake series processors will be delisted, with January 22, 2021 as the last order date and July 9, 2021 as the last shipping date. However, celeron N4000C, Pentium Silver J5005 and Pentium Silver N5000 were last shipped on April 2, 2021, and were retired earlier.
