Intel Processor N100 and N200 are most likely the first non-Pentium CPU families

Intel earlier this week confirmed the abandonment of its well-known Pentium and Celeron branding in favor of the simplified but equally ambiguous “Intel Processor” series.

There has been a leak of the first “next-gen” mobile CPUs depending on this new naming approach. The following names were reported in bootlogs, including unreleased Alder Lake-N CPUs Coelacanth’s Dream discovered:

N100 Intel(R)
N200 Intel(R)

This duo is part of the new, energy-efficient alternative to the Pentium and Celeron. Chances are, Intel’s next processor families, the N100 and N200, will be their new product names. This suggests that we might see SKUs like the N110, N150, N250, etc., but it also raises the question of how we would differentiate between generations. It seems difficult to respond to that at the moment.

It should be noted that the Alder Lake-N CPU family has a low power consumption, with only 8 efficient cores and no performance cores. To enable ultra-thin laptop and tablet designs, these components must continue to operate within a standard power range of 9 to 15 watts. Coelacanth’s speculates that the N100 and N200 could each have four cores and four threads, Gen12 GT1 graphics, and 32 units of execution.

Intel’s new naming scheme will be used in the 2023 laptop series, meaning the N100/N200 Alder Lake-N will be available alongside the powerful 13th-generation Core gaming series.
