Intel Pentium B970 vs Intel Pentium B950

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.

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.
