Intel’s Pentium N3710 is an entry-level SoC usually found in affordable notebooks. It features a quad-core design based on the 14nm manufacturing process with tri-gate transistors. This improves the overall energy efficiency and performance compared to the older Bay Trail platform.
All four cores are based on the Airmont architecture and it’s pretty close to the previous Silvermont architecture so performance per clock isn’t improved as much but the new 14nm manufacturing process allows better utilization of the Burst frequency leading to better overall performance. Compared to the old Intel Pentium N3700, the N3710 successor reaches a maximum of 2.56 GHz and works at base 1.60 GHz frequency.
The whole SoC – including the integrated Intel HD Graphics (Braswell) and the DDR3L memory controller – is rated at 6W TDP while the SDP is 4W. Keep in mind that since the chip uses a passive cooling design, its performance strongly depends on the implementation of each OEM.
The chip should be sufficient for general work, browsing and in some cases even multimedia but will struggle with more demanding tasks and applications.
