Intel's First 4.0 GHz Pentium: Pentium Gold G5620 Listed At Retail
A number of European retailers have started listing new Celeron and the Pentium Gold-branded processors, which indicates that the world’s largest CPU supplier is about to formally announce the products. Topping the list of new processors is the Pentium G5620, which happens to be Intel's first Pentium-branded CPU clocked at 4 GHz.
The list of budget-focused dual-core processors includes seven SKUs: the Pentium Gold G5620, the Pentium Gold G5420, the Pentium Gold G5420T, the Pentium Gold G5600T, the Celeron G4950, the Celeron G4930, and the Celeron G4930T. The key selling points of the new processors are their higher clockspeeds when compared to predecessors.
At this point we don't know what architecture Intel is using – if it's Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, or Coffee Lake Refresh – however the distinction between the three is largely academic, since these are locked processors with few active cores. Coffee Lake Refresh would be ideal, since it includes Meltdown and Spectre hardware mitigations, but as we've already seen with the high-end chips, the hardware fixes aren't any faster than the software fixes; they're just more convenient.
