Earlier this week, Intel officially launched their 7th Gen Core processors for PCs. Along with it, they have quietly launched Apollo Lake processors which are built for low-cost devices such as entry-level 2-in-1s and laptops. It is the successor to Braswell in the Intel’s Atom SoC family and there are 6 SKUs, 3 for desktop and 3 for mobile under the Pentium and Celeron brands.
As far as the performance is concerned, Apollo Lake processor N4200 is 30% faster than Braswell Pentium N4200 in SYSmark. N4200 is 45% faster with 3DMark Skydiver. It is worth noting that the Apollo Lake processor TDPs are higher than the Kaby Lake Y-series CPUs or previous gen Braswell CPUs.
