A new Intel all-small-core processor, i3-N305 has just been spotted on the Geekbench website, revealing some of its parameters and specifications. The all-small-core processor featured 8 cores and threads, each with up to 3.7GHz.

Meanwhile, last month, another Intel Core i3-N305 appeared on Geekbench, performing as a Core i7-7700K. The processors are born from the platform Alder Lake-N with the 12th Generation of Intel Core processors. However, the newly spotted is Intel’s all-small-core processor.

The i3-N305 processor features 8 cores and 8 threads, a base clock of 1.8GHz, a maximum turbo frequency of 3.7GHz, and 2MB and 6MB L2 and L3 caches, respectively. For comparison, the i7-small 1260 P’s core can reach a turbo frequency of 3.4GHz, while the i9-small 12900H’s core can reach a turbo frequency of 3.8GHz.

The all-small-core series CPUs N100 and N200, which feature 4-core and 4-thread specs, have also been mentioned in previous reports. With a main frequency of 1GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.6GHz, the N200 has a higher frequency than the N100, which has a main frequency of 0.8GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.3GHz. Intel has not yet specified a debut date for its all-small-core CPU series.

Although rumor has it that Intel’s all-small-core Alder Lake-N processors, which have up to 8 cores split into two quad-core clusters, are based on the energy-efficient Gracemont architecture. The Xe-LP architecture’s core display, with a maximum of 32EU, is also featured in this series of CPUs.

To date, however, all of Intel’s 12th-generation Core and Pentium Celeron CPUs have big cores. The Celeron 7300 with the lowest specification has a 48EU 0.8GHz core display, an 8MB L3 cache, and 1 large core and 4 tiny cores.
