Intel Pentium Gold 6405U Entry-level Mobile Processor

Pentium Gold

The Intel Pentium Gold 6405U is a power-efficient dual-core SoC for low-cost laptops. This SoC is available in the third quarter of 2019. Though it is not as fast as the latest Core i7/Core i5/Core i3 processors or AMD Ryzen variants, still it can complete your daily computing tasks such as web browsing, basic office productivity suite, and watching HD movies. 

This SoC has a clock speed of  2.4 GHz. It can process up to 4 threads at once because of the HyperThreading technology. It has a 2MB level 3 cache. 

Because of the 100 MHz greater clock speed, the Pentium Gold 6405U would be a little faster than the older Pentium 5405U and consequently in the entry-level of the CPUs. It has an integrated graphics controller called Intel UHD Graphics.  This iGPU has the same specs as Intel HD Graphics 610.
This SoC has a thermal design power (TDP) of 15 watts. The performance of Pentium Gold 6405U should be similar to the older 2nd generation Core i7-2620M.

The Pentium Gold 6405U has a CPU Mark of 2356 (as of January 25, 2020). Compared to other processors, Core i5-7500U scores 3662; Athlon Gold 3150U scores 4209; Core i7-2620 has a CPU Mark of 2415; Ryzen 3 3250U scores 4251; AMD Athlon Silver 3050e has a rating of 3015; Pentium Silver N5030 scores AMD 3015e has a score of 2678; while the AMD 3020e scores 2652.
