New Intel T-Series For Lower-Power Desktops

Rounding out Intel's ninth-generation Core family expansion was the introduction of new T-series processors. The company also introduced new Pentium and Celeron processors.

The T-series lineup largely mirrors Intel's main ninth-generation Core desktop lineup, except for the fact that these processors are designed for computers with smaller power envelopes: 35 watts versus the range of 62-95 watts required for the regular processors.

As a result, the T-series CPUs come with lower clock speeds while sporting the same number of cores, threads, memory support and Intel Smart Cache. The Core i9-9900T, for instance, comes with base and turbo clock speeds of 2.1 GHz and 4.4 GHz, respectively, versus the i9-9900's 3.1 GHz and 5 GHz base and turbo speeds.

At the bottom of Intel's new desktop CPU offerings are new Pentium Gold and Celeron processors, three of which are part of the low-power T-series. The headlining processor of this line is the Intel Pentium Gold G5620, which comes with two cores, four threads and a base clock speed of 4 GHz.
