Intel Pentium 967 vs Intel Pentium B970 vs Intel Pentium B940

Intel Pentium 967

► remove from comparison

The Intel Pentium 967 is an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) dual core processor for entry-level laptops. It is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture but many of the features like Turbo Boost, Virtualization (VT-x, VT-d), HyperThreading, AES or Trusted Execution are deactivated. The Pentium 967 integrates a graphics card called Intel HD Graphics that is based on the HD Graphics 2000 and clocked from 350 - 1000 MHz.

The performance of the Pentium 967 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU and therefore faster than a 1.3 GHz Pentium U5600.

The 17W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and memory controller and therefore the 967 is suited for small subnotebooks.

Intel Pentium B970

► remove from comparison Intel B970

The Intel Pentium B970 is a dual core processor for entry-level laptops. It is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture but many of the features like Turbo Boost for the CPU part, HyperThreading, AES, Virtualization (VT-x and VT-d), Trusted Execution or Intel Quick Sync are deactivated. The Pentium B970 integrates a graphics card called Intel HD Graphics that is based on the HD Graphics 2000 clocked at 650 / 1100 (with Turbo Boost).

The performance of the Pentium B970 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU. Therefore, the B960 should perform about 10% better than a Pentium P6300.

The 35W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and DDR3-1333 memory controller.

Intel Pentium B940

► remove from comparison Intel B940

The Intel Pentium B940 is a dual core processor for entry-level laptops. It is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture but many of the features like Turbo Boost for the CPU part, HyperThreading, AES, Virtualization (VT-x and VT-d), Trusted Execution or Intel Quick Sync are deactivated. The Pentium B940 integrates a graphics card called Intel HD Graphics that is based on the HD Graphics 2000 clocked at 650 / 1100 (with Turbo Boost).

The performance of the Pentium B940 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU like the Intel Pentium P6100 due to the architectural changes in the core. In our benchmarks, the B940 was even faster than an old P6200 with 2,1 GHz.

The 35W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and memory controller.
