Intel Gemini Lake is supposed to replace Apollo lake in the mobile market. This new upcoming architecture will feature a lower TDP, faster cores and better-integrated graphics. We recently talked about how Intel Gemini Lake CPUs will feature hardware decoding support for 10-bit video formats like VP9.
While there is little information regarding the upcoming Intel Gemini Lake chip, there has been a rumor that the chips will feature integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. That would make Intel Gemini Lake a great option for entry level notebooks and 2-in-1 devices, keeping in mind the Intel Gemini Lake only need 6W ~ 12W.
The leak reveals the CNVi unit and this could be the first time that Intel integrates Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a modem module, all in such a small space. According to reports, the integrated graphics will feature 8 execution units. You can check out the leak below.
Intel Gemini Lake CPU features include support for high-resolution displays and HDMI 2.0 outputs. The chips will also feature a single-channel DDR4 integrated memory controller. We also know that the CPUs will be made on the 14nm process. These CPUs will feature 4mb of L3 cache, which is double as compared to current generation CPUs.
Intel Gemini Lake CPUs should be arriving before the end of the year according to leaked roadmaps. Do take this bit of information with a grain of salt as this has not been confirmed by Intel. You should wait for official confirmation before taking this information to heart. You can check out the leaked roadmap here.
In other news, Intel Coffee Lake will be the first mainstream architecture from Intel to introduce 6 cores to the masses. You can read more about it here.
Let us know what you think about Intel Gemini Lake CPUs and whether or not you are interested in buying a laptop that will be powered by one of these Gemini Lake CPUs.
