Intel Celeron N4000 Lower-End Laptop Processor

The Intel Celeron N4000 is a lower-end processor you can find in affordable laptop PCs. As a basic CPU, it has only two cores with a single computing thread per core. On the positive side, the Celeron N4000 has a decently high maximum clock speed of 2.6 GHz, an unusually large 4 MB cache for the budget processor category (as opposed to more common 1 MB or 2 MB), and a power-efficient design with a power consumption of 6 Watts. Furthermore, thanks to its good thermal characteristics the N4000 enables fully fan-less and totally quiet designs of notebooks with it.

The Intel Celeron N4000 benchmark results indicate the chip is among slower notebook CPUs. Nevertheless, it is a decent solution for non-demanding day-to-day tasks. It’s suitable for light web browsing with a couple of browser tabs opened simultaneously, work in Microsoft Office programs, movie watching, or web conferencing. For heavier duties like video editing, notebooks with mid-range and high-end CPUs like the Intel Core i-series are recommended. But, these aren’t as cheap as the Celeron N4000-equipped laptops and they must use cooling fans.

The Intel UHD 600 graphics which is embedded in the N4000 is a very basic graphics processor. So, laptops with the Celeron N4000 / UHD 600 can run only the most basic PC games.

    The Intel Celeron N4000 actually performed better than I expected.
    I ran some games such as DmC: Devil May Cry, Sleeping Dogs, Borderlands 2(at 720p with some tweaks, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm revolution, Deadpool, Assassins Creed Rogue, Batman Arkham Asylum, Saints Row 3, Devil May Cry 4 (at 720p with all settings on low) and the other games listed above, I ran at a custom resolution of 960×540 and some others at 800×600 and to my surprise they all gave a decent fps of about 23 – 30(Some even performed better) and I’m pretty sure if a some are ran at 640×480, better results will be produced.
    So, if you’re looking for a budget PC which can perform fairly demanding tasks, I think it’s an okay processor.
    Besides, all the above games were tested on the Hp Stream 14 with 4Gb ram, so if you were to get a notebook having 8Gb ram, that’s even better.
    That’s my verdict on it.

    I’m a programmer, could I run 2 servers and have a browser with some tabs opened simultaneously? Would it be superslow? is there a way I can test this? thanks 😀

      Hi, I really wouldn’t recommend this processor for any serious work like programming. I don’t know what servers you use and if they require a lot of computing power, but the N4000 is among the slowest processors on the market. It very likely won’t be able to easily run the servers and multiple browser tabs at the same. That said, it is possible that your programs will work, but very likely there will be hiccups.

      Depending on software / servers you use, I would recommend you to get at least the 8th Gen or newer Intel Core i3 series for your work, and preferably 8th Gen or newer Core i5 / i7. Or the AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 series.

    It runs world of warcraft classic. Bought this for my 7 year old daughter, it was $150. I install wow classic to see if it ran at lower settings, it did. Got to play in the plane without having to bring my big heavy gaming laptop.

    • Dan Z

      Yes, the Celeron N4000 supports up to 8GB RAM. Just make sure your laptop has a RAM slot if you want to upgrade, since notebooks with this processor sometimes only have RAM soldered on-board.

    I have two notebooks (PEAQ S130) with N4000. WIth thew same application, one runs slower than the other (about 20% slower). Why ?

      Due to the manufacturing process, there are never two identical microprocessors …
      You can also have small differences in software configuration that you have on each computer. Maybe in a Windows it executes more processes in the background while the application is running, etc …

      Hi, the N4000 was released in late 2017. What do you want to calculate? Regards.
