Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y Entry-Level Laptop Processor

The Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y is a budget-class laptop processor. With its two cores, two threads per core, a clock speed of 1.6 GHz, 2MB of cache, and Intel HD 615 integrated graphics, the Pentium Gold 4415Y offers basic computing performance. On the positive side, the chip consumes only 6 Watts of power. It is power-efficient and runs cool. For comparison, the popular mainstream Intel Core chips like the i5-8250U consume 15 Watts. So, the 4415Y is suitable for use in thin-and-light laptops, 2-in-1, and tablet PCs without big batteries and large cooling systems. A well-known example is the Microsoft Surface Go, which is completely fanless.

Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y Benchmark

Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y Benchmark

The benchmark results indicate the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y is designed for light computing tasks, such as web browsing, text and spreadsheet processing, movies, and light casual PC games. It lags greatly behind the widely used Intel Core U-series CPUs, including lower-mid-range Core i3 series. It’s also slower than other members of the power-efficient Y lineup, such as the Core m3-7Y30. This difference isn’t overly big when it comes to the aforementioned routine tasks. But, heavier duties like video / audio file editing will reveal lower performance of the 4415Y.

Note: The benchmark scores of the listed processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y and compared CPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors. However, the benchmark results are good indicators of the processors' performance.
