Intel Pentium 997

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.
