Intel Celeron and Pentium series gains AVX2 and AVX-512 support

Tom's Hardware writes Intel's entry-level processors now offer almost the same feature set as the Core series. The new Tiger Lake-based Celeron and Pentium Gold laptop processors feature support for the AVX2 extensions as well as AVX512-VNNI.
Unlike previous-generation Celeron and Pentium Gold processors for notebooks (and embedded applications in case of the model 6305E), these CPUs support AVX2 instructions, the Intel Deep Learning Boost technology (using the AVX512-VNNI instruction), as well as the Intel Gaussian and Neural Accelerator 2.0, the same 'premium' features supported by more expensive Tiger Lake processors. Meanwhile, enabling support for AVX2 and the AVX512-VNNI instructions is not particularly surprising given that Intel's upcoming low-power Gracemont cores will support AVX2 as well sometimes next year.
Interestingly, the new Celeron and Pentium parts also feature Xe-LP integrated graphics with 48 EUs. You also get Thunderbolt 4 support and the Pentium Gold 7505 even has Turbo Boost 2.0.
