Intel Pentium N3540 is low-voltage, four core processor, announced near the end of Q4, 2013. It is an integrated (soldered onto the motherboard) package, which is part of Intel’s budget line of processors. The chip is based on the “Bay Trail” architecture and operates at a base frequency of 2.16GHz. A typical representative of the Pentium family, N3540 does not sport TurboBoost or HyperThreading functionality. Unlike other Pentiums, however, it is outfitted with a technology very similar to TurboBoost, which can increase the clock speed of all four cores to 2.66GHz.
The chip is equipped with 224KB of first level cache and 2MB of second level cache. The Intel Pentium N3540 has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) controller. It operates at a base frequency of 313MHz and has a maximum dynamic frequency of 896MHz. Power consumption of the whole system on a chip is 7.5 watts, and its maximum operating temperature is 100C.
Pentium N3540 supports PCI Express 2.0, up to 8GB of DDR3L/ 1066/1333 memory and the SSE4 instruction set.
