Description of the processor

The Intel Pentium Silver N5030 is a 4-core processor from Intel. It is based on the "Gemini Lake Refresh" design and combines 4 smaller CPU cores. Hyper-threading for doubling the CPU threads does not support the processor.

Its four CPU cores may clock the Intel Pentium Silver N5030 with up to 2.4 GHz, with the base frequency of the processor at low 1.1 GHz. Only one CPU core is loaded, but up to 3.1 GHz are possible. The Intel Pentium Silver N5030 has a very small TDP of only 6 watts and can therefore also be passively chilled in smaller notebooks. Thus, the Intel Pentium Silver N5030 is ideal for Office PCs or notebooks to be made to the low demands.

The processor is often offered with 2, 4 or 8 GB of memory, whereby 16 GB are possible. Maximum DDR4-2400 memory is supported, whereby the Intel Pentium Silver N5030 has two memory channels and thus comes to a fairly proper memory bandwidth. The ECC error correction method of the memory is not supported. This is often used in servers and workstations, in the private area ECC unfortunately could not really take foot.

The Intel Pentium Silver N5030 is soldered in the base BGA 1090 with the mainboard of the system and is therefore not interchangeable later. Intel has introduced the processor in the fourth quarter of 2019. Compared to its predecessor (based on "Gemini-Lake") Intel has raised only the clock frequencies of the Intel Pentium Silver N5030.

As an internal graphics solution, an Intel UHD Graphics 605 is installed. It represents the smallest expansion stage of the Intel UHD graphics and has only 18 execution units and 144 shaders. This does not use the graphics card for games or more demanding tasks.
