The Intel Celeron N5105: A Quad-Core SoC for Budget Desktops


The Intel Celeron N5105 is a quad-core SoC of the Jasper Lake series that was announced in early 2021. This chip is primarily intended for use in inexpensive desktops and offers a decent performance for basic tasks.

CPU Architecture

The N5105 is based on the new Tremont architecture, which is a complete redesign compared to the previous Golmont Plus cores. Intel promises a 30% improvement in single-thread performance compared to the previous generation. The N5105 has four CPU cores clocked between 2 and 2.9 GHz (single core Burst) and does not offer HyperThreading (SMT). The chip also includes 1.5 MB L2 and 4 MB L3 cache.


In addition to the quad-core CPU, the N5105 also integrates a 24 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU clocked from 450 - 800 MHz, a LPDDR4(x) dual channel memory controller (up to 16 GB and 2933 MHz), and partially integrates Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 14 USB 2.0/3.2 ports, and two SATA 6.0 ports. The chip is manufactured in 10nm by Intel and soldered directly to the mainboard.


The N5105 is expected to perform slightly better than the old Pentium N5030 due to the new CPU architecture. However, it is not as fast as modern Core processors of the Tiger Lake generation and is best suited for basic tasks such as office software, web browsing, and moderate multitasking.

Power Consumption

The TDP of the N5105 is 10 Watts (mobile and lower clocked N5100 6W), making it possible to cool it passively in theory. However, SKUs with fans are also possible.


The Intel Celeron N5105 is a quad-core SoC that offers decent performance for basic tasks and is primarily intended for use in inexpensive desktops. The chip integrates a 24 EU Intel UHD Graphics GPU and has a TDP of 10 Watts. If you're in the market for a budget-friendly desktop, the N5105 might be worth considering.
