Intel Pentium B950 vs Intel Pentium B960

Intel Pentium B950

► remove

The Intel Pentium B950 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 B950 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU like the Intel Pentium P6200 due to the architectural changes in the core.

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

The Intel Pentium B960 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 B960 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 B960 should be faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU. Therefore, the B960 should perform similar to the Core i3-330M with 2.13 GHz, HyperThreading and 3MB Cache.

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