Intel recently unveiled the all-new Pentium Silver and Celeron Atom processors. This new generation of Intel processors geared towards usage on low-power platforms such as inexpensive computers and smartphones.
The ability for these processors to be on mobile devices allows consumers to have powerful computers on the go. So, whether they want a powerful computer at their desks or on the subway, they’re able to perform wherever they are. This newfound flexibility along with the other new features of the Pentium Silver and Celeron Atom processors are sure to make these a favorite among consumers.
This generation of processors are manufactured with better and improved processing cores over previous generations as well as with an enhanced media decoding/encoding engine, and a promise from Intel to have better performance while using less energy.
These Pentium Silver and Celeron Atom processors are Intel’s third generation of low-power processors. Because of the improved process in manufacturing these processors, Intel claims that these processors are nearly 70 percent faster than the previous generation’s Pentium N3540/J2900 chips.
With these improved times, processors will be able to download an 8GB movie in one minute and provide up to 10 hours of HD playback with a 35-hour battery life.
Here are some other new-and-improved features for the Pentium Silver and Celeron Atom processors.
Improved Video and Memory
For graphics, these new processors users the Gen9LP core with up to 18 EUs. With these new processors, one can multitask watching movies, playing games while still running data-intensive projects on their older or inexpensive computing system. This means more binge-watching of your favorite shows and the ability to chat with friends all night long while still maintaining productivity for your other tasks.
Improved Storage and Connectivity
In addition to great visuals and battery life, these processors allow their users to have improved storage and connectivity. You can do the following with these new processors:

- Enjoy your favorite movies on Netflix in ultra-high definition (UHD)
- Have the ability for your Google Hangouts to be captured on 1080 video
- Use up to Gigabit speeds on your computer when connected to WiFi
- Extremely fast networking performance without an Ethernet connection
Intel has guaranteed that they didn’t sacrifice security in the process of making these processers substantially faster. Consumers are using and consuming more and more data online and are more susceptible than ever to cyber criminals. These new processors have security features built directly into their hardware.
The Intel Pentium Silver and Celeron Atom processors also have secure-enabled browsing as well as the ability to have password managers.
Many consumers have not only have desktop computers, but also laptops, tablets, smartphones and mini PCs that also require higher-level processors to do their favorite things such as streaming movies, live streaming with their friends, and playing games.
