The Intel Celeron N3350 is a dual-core SoC mainly used for low-cost notebooks and Chromebooks and was available since 2016. The SoC has a base clock speed of  1.1 GHz with a burst speed up to 2.4 GHz. The SoC is fabricated using a 14-nanometer (nm) process with a fin field-effect transistor (FinFETs). Aside from the two CPU cores, the SoC also consists of DirectX 12 capable graphics processing unit and a DDR3L, LPDDR3, and LPDDR4 memory controller which is dual-channel and a clock speed of 1866 MHz up to 2400 MHz.

Intel markets performance gains of approximately 30 percent but does not disclose any particulars about the specific adjustments. This SoC must be nearly on par with AMD's Beema or Carrizo-L SoCs in terms of the speed performance, but it still far behind the more pricey Core CPUs.

The Intel Celeron N3350 CPU performance which has 2 CPU cores and a clock speed between 1.1 GHz to 2.4 GHz should be subject mainly to the cooling system. If the SoC can preserve its burst speed, the Celeron N3350 should be around 20 to 30 percent much faster than the previous N2840 and contend with the Intel Celeron 2955U which has 2 cores with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz. This SoC is only suitable for less demanding everyday tasks such as office, web browsing, etc.

This SoC has an integrated graphics card called Intel HD Graphics 500 (Apollo Lake) which is built on Intel's Gen9 architecture. Equipped with 12 EUs and has a clock speed up to 650 MHz. The performance of this Celeron N3350 should be nearly on par with the older Intel HD Graphics (Braswell). 

Similar to the ancestor, Intel indicates the Thermal Design Power (TDP) to 6 Watts which can be adjusted to 4 Watts which is Scenario Design Power (SDP). The Celeron N3350 has a CPU Mark of 1149. You may compare the performance of this SoC with the others available in the market here.
