Intel Pentium B970 vs Intel Pentium B980

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 B980

► remove from comparison Intel B980

The Intel Pentium B980 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 B980 integrates a graphics card called Intel HD Graphics that is based on the desktop HD Graphics 2000 clocked at 650 / 1150 (with Turbo Boost).

The performance of the Pentium B980 should be clearly faster than a similar clocked Arrandale Pentium CPU. Due to the high clock speed, the missing HyperThreading and smaller last level cache should be equalized and therefore, the performance should be similar to a Intel Core i3-2310M with 2.1 GHz.

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