Intel’s New Atom Turns Three With The Release Of The C3000
The Denverton launch was quiet compared to Comet Lake S, however it did happen and is worth looking at. This is something of a challenge, as Intel really does not push out much information on these chips, ServeThe Home did some digging of their own to come up with the detailed information which they posted here.

While the architecture remains single threaded, the core counts make up for that as several models have 16 cores to offer you. In addition there are eight models which have a Turbo Clock which lets them run above their base frequency, just like Intel’s big boys. Memory support ranges from DDR4-1866 through to DDR4-2400 depending on the model. You will start to see these appearing in network and storage appliances in the near future.
As for price and power consumption there is quite a wide range, the lowest power four core C3538 only consumes 15W while running at 2.1GHz. At the high end the C3955 has a TDP of 32W from 16 cores running at 2.1GHz base, 2.4GHz boost. Check out the rest of the details by clicking that previous link.
Lest you think that the Big 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Refresh was the only 2020 refresh for Intel, we have new Intel Atom C3000 SKUs. Quietly launched this quarter, the quartet of new processors are out adding the “R” and “L” suffixes. This further expands the Atom C3000 line as it enters its third year of service.
