RAM and PCIe

A CPU is a device using mostly all capacity of the system for increasing speed and efficiency to operate. So, the more modern a memory standard and the bigger its maximum supported storage are, the better it is.

Memory type: DDR3L-1333 SO-DIMM   Memory channels: 2
ECC: No   PCIe version: 2.0
PCIe lanes: 4  

Encryption

Find out if processor supports the AES-NI extension developed by Intel Company which is used for boosting apps.

AES-NI: No  

Thermal Management

A standard power supply may be quite enough for low-performing and old processors, yet modern chips may need a strong cooling system and powerful power supply. To define it, pay attention please to the TDP figure and maximum temperature in operating mode.

TDP: 7.5 W   Tjunction max.: --
TDP up: --   TDP down: --

Devices using this processor

Learn which laptops and workstations use Intel Pentium N3540

Used in: Unknown

Cinebench R15 (Multi-Core)

Cinebench R15 benchmark reflects the efficiency of your processor operation in assessment mode. It works on Cinema 4 Suite software complex of the earlier version. Hyperthreading is not included.

iGPU - FP32 Performance (Single-precision GFLOPS)

A benchmark is designed to determine graphics cards’ performance and speed, built into their central processor. It works in iGPU mode, FP32 Performance. The higher the rate is, the better it is.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Single-Core)

A new approach to testing processor performance opens up the GeekBench 5 benchmark! A detailed under-load system analysis gives an accurate assessment of the quality. The higher the estimation is, the faster and more efficient the processor is. It is a version for testing a single core.

Geekbench 5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

A modern version of the GeekBench 5 benchmark reveals all opportunities and potential of your processor. As a result of testing, you can understand to what extent a processor is fast and efficient in operation with graphic apps or games.

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Single-Core)

To define how efficient and powerful a processor is among several models or in comparison with another, we recommend paying attention to Geekbench 3 benchmark, which tests the single-core processor performance.

Geekbench 3, 64bit (Multi-Core)

To reveal the whole potential of the equipment, the Geekbench 3 benchmark uses all cores for 64bit models in a specialised software complex that imitates modelling various 3D scenarios. The higher estimation is, the better the performance is.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Single-Core)

Cinebench R11.5 is an outdated version of the benchmark for processors of earlier generations. To find out the potential or compare it with a modern processor model, it is enough to check the performance estimate. The higher it is, the better it is. Hyperthreading is not included.

Cinebench R11.5, 64bit (Multi-Core)

Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is designed for testing early-generation processors. The overall final performance is based on 3D scene simulations in Cinema 4 Suite. It engages all processor cores.

Estimated results for PassMark CPU Mark

The authoritative benchmark PassMark shows how efficient the processor is in the overall performance rating. It takes into account the operation mode of all cores and supports hyperthreading. The benchmark is based on various scenarios for performing calculations, 2D and 3D modelling.
