Intel Celeron N2840 is an entry-level CPU aimed to be used in small ultrabooks and notebooks excelling in power efficiency. The chip is clocked at 2.58 GHz with two cores and it’s part of the Bay Trail-M platform. However, useful features like Intel Quick Sync and Wireless Display are supported.
Unfortunately, other features like Hyper-Threading have been removed in contrary to the previous generation. At least Intel has included the support for the following set of instructions: SSE 4.1 and 4.2 as well as AES-NI (optional). With that being said, the CPU will fit most mainstream notebooks and can serve as a daily driver without going into more demanding tasks. Browsing, multimedia, and light applications are the way to go with this SoC.
The chip also integrates the Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) GPU based on the Gen7 architecture that supports DirectX 11 with 4 EUs (Execution Units) clocked at 313 – 792 MHz. The whole SoC is rated at 7.5W TDP with the dual-channel DDR3L-1333 memory that can go up to 8GB.
