Intel Pentium B970 vs Intel Pentium 977

Intel Pentium B970

► remove 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 977

► remove

The Intel Pentium 977 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 977 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 977 is a bit above a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU and therefore higher than a 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.
