Intel Celeron N4120

About processor

The Intel Celeron N4120 processor is a solid choice for low-power laptops and 2-in-1 devices. With a 14nm technology and a low TDP of 5W, it offers decent performance while being gentle on battery life. The 4 cores and 4 threads provide enough horsepower for everyday tasks such as web browsing, office productivity, and media consumption. The base frequency of 1.1 GHz may seem low at first glance, but the processor is capable of boosting up to 2.6 GHz when needed, providing a responsive user experience. The integrated graphics also add value, allowing for casual gaming and multimedia playback without the need for a dedicated GPU. In terms of real-world performance, the processor holds up well in benchmarks, scoring 343 in Geekbench 6 Single Core and 1022 in Multi-Core tests. This makes it suitable for light multitasking and basic content creation. Overall, the Intel Celeron N4120 is a budget-friendly option for users who prioritize portability and battery life without sacrificing too much on performance. It's a great choice for students, light users, and anyone in need of a reliable, efficient processor for everyday computing tasks.

Max. Operating Temperature
Junction Temperature is the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die.
105 °C
Instruction Set
The instruction set is a hard program stored inside the CPU that guides and optimizes CPU operations. With these instruction sets, the CPU can run more efficiently. There are many manufacturers that design CPUs, which results in different instruction sets, such as the 8086 instruction set for the Intel camp and the RISC instruction set for the ARM camp. x86, ARM v8, and MIPS are all codes for instruction sets. Instruction sets can be extended; for example, x86 added 64-bit support to create x86-64. Manufacturers developing CPUs that are compatible with a certain instruction set need authorization from the instruction set patent holder. A typical example is Intel authorizing AMD, enabling the latter to develop CPUs compatible with the x86 instruction set.

Memory Specifications

Memory Type
Intel® processors come in four different types: Single Channel, Dual Channel, Triple Channel, and Flex Mode. Maximum supported memory speed may be lower when populating multiple DIMMs per channel on products that support multiple memory channels.
Max Memory Size
Max memory size refers to the maximum memory capacity supported by the processor.
Memory Channels
The number of memory channels refers to the bandwidth operation for real world application.
Max Memory Bandwidth
Max Memory bandwidth is the maximum rate at which data can be read from or stored into a semiconductor memory by the processor (in GB/s).
38.4 GB/s

GPU Specifications

Integrated Graphics Model
An integrated GPU refers to the graphics core that is integrated into the CPU processor. Leveraging the processor's powerful computational capabilities and intelligent power efficiency management, it delivers outstanding graphics performance and a smooth application experience at a lower power consumption.
