Gemini Lake (GLK) is the name of the core for Intel’s generation of system on chip serving as a successor to Apollo Lake. These low-power chips primarily targeted towards entry level embedded devices, low-cost laptops and desktops, and all-in-one PCs as well as IoTs. Gemini Lake chips are manufactured on a 14 nm process and are based on the Goldmont Plus microarchitecture. In an attempt to differentiate the low-power core from Intel’s big cores, beginning with Goldmont Plus, Pentium-based Gemini Lake were re-branded as Pentium Silver whereas Intel’s big cores (e.g., Kaby Lake) were re-branded Pentium Gold.

However, sometimes I can faintly hear this little fanRead More →
