New Processors, New Names
We have recently made a number of processor and naming updates. We introduced Intel® Core™ Ultra processors and Intel® Core™ 14th gen processors. We added the Intel® Core™ processor N-Series. And we introduced a processor for the essential product space: Intel® Processor—a new offering that will replace the Intel Pentium® and Intel Celeron® branding.
Intel® Core™ Ultra Processors
Intel® Core™ Ultra processors are a groundbreaking advancement in Intel chip innovation. With an all-new 3D performance hybrid design, they include NPUs (Neural Processing Units) and may also include an Intel® Arc GPU6 for graphics and AI acceleration. Now customers can enjoy exciting new AI capabilities—like video editing, collaboration and game upscaling—while conserving power.
The Intel® Core™ Ultra processor family includes Intel® Core™ Ultra 9 processor, Intel® Core™ Ultra 7 processor, and Intel® Core™ Ultra 5 processor.
Suffixes for Intel® Core™ Ultra processors
Intel® Core™ Ultra processors will have suffixes H and U.
For example: Intel® Core™ Ultra 7 processor 165H and Intel® Core™ Ultra 5 processor 135U.

Intel® Core™ Processors N-Series
The Intel® Core™ processor N-Series provides a step-up in performance for entry-level computing on both laptops and desktops. The N-Series naming convention is:
Finally, we introduced a new processor for the value product space: Intel® Processor—a new offering that will replace the Intel Pentium® and Intel Celeron® branding.
The new naming conventions is:
Note: The Intel® Processor does not include any generation indicator in the number format. The Intel® Processor alphanumeric prefix will start with an N or U.
Additionally, the Intel® Processor also includes other variations outside of N-series processors.
Intel® Pentium® Silver and Gold Processors
Intel is continuing to offer existing Intel® Pentium® Silver and Intel® Pentium® Gold processors.
Higher numbers within the processor class indicate improved features and benchmarks, including cache, clock speed, or front-side bus.
Intel® Pentium® Gold and Silver processors are distinguished by their overall CPU performance:
- Intel® Pentium® Gold processors are optimized for performance.
- Intel® Pentium® Silver processors are optimized for cost.
Intel® Celeron® Processors
The Intel® Celeron® processor naming convention includes two different formats. Some Intel® Celeron® processors may have one of the following: a four-digit number, a prefix, or a suffix.
