Intel Pentium 997 vs Intel Pentium 957 vs Intel Pentium 987

Intel Pentium 997

► remove from comparison Intel 997

The Intel Pentium 997 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 997 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 997 is somewhat higher than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU. The Core i3-2357M offers less clock speed but features HyperThreading and a 3MB Last Level Cache.

The 17W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and memory controller and therefore the 987 is suited for small subnotebooks.

Intel Pentium 957

► remove from comparison

The Intel Pentium 957 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 957 integrates a graphics card called Intel HD Graphics that is based on the HD Graphics 2000 and clocked from 350 - 800 MHz.

The performance of the Pentium 957 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU and therefore on a level of the 1.3 GHz Pentium U5600.

The 17W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and memory controller and therefore the 957 is suited for small subnotebooks.

Intel Pentium 987

► remove from comparison

The Intel Pentium 987 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 987 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 987 is a bit higher than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU and therefore significantly faster than a 1.3 GHz Pentium U5600.

The 17W TDP rating includes the integrated GPU and memory controller and therefore the 987 is suited for small subnotebooks.
