Intel could be readying its latest Sandy Bridge-based Pentium CPUs for manufacturers

According to Laptoping, the Sandy Bridge-based Pentium B950 CPU is now shipping to manufacturers. Therefore, we should begin seeing multiple notebooks launching with the processor in the near future.

The B950 is a dual-core CPU with an on-die Intel GPU, similar to Sandy Bridge chipsets. The processor is expected to be faster than a similarly clocked Pentium P6200. While we have no benchmarks for the CPU as of this writing, the P950 should be quite similar to the Intel B940 found in the Toshiba Satellite L766-5244.

We expect to have more concrete performance comparisons between the P950 and other Pentium CPUs in the future as more notebooks ship with the processor.
