Alder Lake-N official

The successor to Intel's popular Gemini Lake and Jasper Lake families is here, and it's called N-series. Expect more fanless mini desktops soon.

"Intel N-series processors deliver the performance you need at the affordability you want to connect, learn and play anywhere. The Gracemont CPU microarchitecture built on the latest Intel 7 process features up to 8 efficient cores (“E-cores”), enabling easy, responsive, streamlined experiences. Collaborate and stream with confidence with Intel® Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+), next-gen Intel® UHD Graphics, enhanced Image Processing Unit (IPU 6) and enabled long-lasting battery life. And for the first time, you can scale up to Intel® Core™ i3 within an N-series platform for a 3.8 GHz turbo frequency. Choose your laptop or desktop, Chrome or Windows, and enjoy a balance of performance and value for the essential, entry-level PC that’s right for you."

Besides the initial four SKUs we noticed what could be an even more affordable option on Intel's Ark, Intel Processor N50 (dual-core up to 3.40GHz, 6W TDP).
