Intel Pentium 967

Pentium 967 is the one of the low clocked Sandy Bridge processors, aimed at powering notebooks that consume low power and enhance battery life.

The processor comes with integrated graphics ( called HD Graphics 2000), but the base clock frequency of the integrated graphics is lower than the clock frequency of integrated graphics of other processors in the Sandy Bridge Series. Pentium 967 come with base graphics clock frequency at 350 MHz ( The Pentium B950 for example has a base clock frequency of 650 MHz). It however has higher turbo graphics clock at 1 GHz. So normally it will run at 350 MHz, but when you run graphics intensive application, the clock can jump to 1 GHz. The turbo graphics ensures that you do not lack graphics performance when you need it.

The lower base clock ensure less heat dissipation a lower TDP rating of 17 Watts ( as compared to 35 Watts for most other processors in this line).

The table shows a quick overlook of the Pentium 967.

    Take a look at the Samsung NP300U1A-A01UK Laptop – a full fledged notebook with Pentium B967 inside.It has 4 GB RAM and comes with 500 GB Hard disk.

      It is actually Pentium 967 and not Pentium B967 as many of you may believe.

  2. alex says:

    The Table shows TDP Rating at 35 Watts, it should be 17 Watts.

  3. admin says:

    Thanks alex for pointing this out. The Typo has been corrected. The low TDP rating makes it useful for Thin and sleek notebooks. Notebook manufacturers should be able to churn out notebooks under $500 with this processor.

    Can I play Diablo3 game with this processor ?

    rest1,

    It will not be pleasant experience even if you play it at lowest setting. It comes with HD Graphics 2000 and not HD Graphics 3000. Look for AMD’s populat A6-3420M processor if you want to play Diablo 3 cheap.

    I do not play games – just a display is good enough for me. It plays videos great. Love this processor

    Look for Ivy Bridge Pentiums, they will have better graphics.

    If Apple could manufacture its products in US – it could have wiped out at least half of its Unemployment. I hate Apple.

  9. Jumba says:

    Sharon,

    And do you think Samsung manufactures its phone in US ? And you like Samsung because of that ? Tell me one big manufacturer who manufactures its product in US and not in China.

    Is Pentium 967 better than AMD’s E-450 ?
