Intel Pentium B950

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.
