Little bit of boring news for today. Finally, Intel releases AMD Athlon 300U equivalent entry level mobile processor under Comet Lake U family which is Pentium Gold 6405U. Obviously, it is overly refined 14nm++ Dual Core 4 Threaded processor with Integrated UHD Graphics that’s much slower than AMD’s Vega 3 Integrated Graphics solution found in Athlon 300U Mobile APU. Similarly, Pentium Gold 6405U chip’s base clock established at 2.4 GHz like Athlon 300U but without turbo boost frequency where 300U gets 3.3 GHz boost clock speed advantage.
Most disappointing part of this ultra low power CPU is ridiculously small with only 2 MB Level 2 Cache if you compare with incredible Athlon 300U’s 4 MB Level 3 cache. Good part of it’s smallest Pentium processor is 15W TDP which is helpful to preserve laptop’s battery life for longer time. Everything about 6405U processor’s specs you may find in Intel’s ARK website database at any time. Thanks to momomo_us from twitter for this latest Intel product revelation.
