Celeron G4900 3.10GHz (Coffee Lake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - Retail
Intel's eight generation of CPUs go by this codename and represent the successor to the Socket 1151 Kaby Lake and Skylake series. Although they share the same socket designation, they are not compatible with older chipsets due to a range of optimisations to Coffee Lake CPUs. On this basis, they require a 300- series chipset. The Intel Celeron processors from the Coffee Lake generation offer two CPU cores and high clock frequencies - and all at a TDP of just 54 Watts!
The Intel Celeron G4900 at a Glance:
- 2 physical cores
- 3,1 GHz base clock with a 54 Watt TDP
- 2 Megabyte L3 Cache
- Support for DDR4-2.400 (Dual Channel)
- UHD Graphics 610 GPU
- Only compatible with motherboards utilising 300- series chipsets!
- Attention: Boxed version with CPU cooler!
The Intel Celeron G4900: Powerful Two-Core Processors
The Intel Celeron G4900 offers a clock frequency of 3,1 GHz which offers plenty of power in games and applications. The L3 Cache has been increased to 2 Megabytes and the Thermal Design Power (TDP) sits at 54 Watts.
One fundamental difference compared to the Skylake- and Kaby Lake generations is that Coffee Lake is only compatible with faster and more efficient DDR4-RAM. The four-core processors support frequencies up to 2.400 MHz while six-core processors support up to 2.666 MHz. In terms of the socket itself Intel has opted to retain LGA 1151, although it is vitally important that a motherboard with a 300- series chipset is used. This is due to the fact that the processor may otherwise suffer damage due to alterations in the power delivery system.
In direct comparison to the 200- series, 300- series processors allow for improved power delivery for the entire CPU - thereby improving overclockability. The integrated GPU has undergone similar improvements in terms of clock speeds and drivers, now bearing the new Intel HD Graphics UHD 610 designation. With its 12 Execution Units it offers more than adequate graphics power as well as Intel Quick Sync, GPU Compute and of course a game or two as well. Furthermore the GPU supports DirectX 12 with Feature-Level 12_1, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.0 as well as 4K- and UHD resolutions at 60 Hz via Displayport. This requires a compatible motherboard.
This boxed version of the processor includes a compatible CPU cooler from Intel.
