In this question and answer Series at compare-processors.com we will try to answer the questions that you may have in mind about the performance comparison and benchmark of Intel Pentium P6200 vis a vis Core i3-370M.

QuestionWhich of the Intel Pentium P6200 and Core i3-370M is faster ?

Answer – The Intel’s Core i3-370M is faster than Pentium P6200.

QuestionBut Why ?
Answer – The Core i3-370M is clocked at 3.40 GHz while Pentium P6200 is clocked only at 2.13 GHz. Also, the Core i3-370  supports Hyperthreading that Pentium P6200 does not. In multitasking environment, there could be 4 threads running in parallel in Core i3-370M while there could be maximum 2 threads running in parallel in case of Pentium P6200.

Question But what is the degree of difference in the performance between the two processors ?
Answer – The Passmark Score of the Pentium P6200 is 1664 while that of the core i3-370M is 2240. A big improvement in performance.

QuestionOK, OK, I got it – do you have any Windows 7 Experience Index to report ?
Answer – Windows 7 Experience index of Core i3-370M is 6.7 while that of the Pentium P6200 is 5.8

Question So what are similarities between these two processors ?
Answer – Very similar. Both have Arrandale architecture and have integrated memory controller. Both have two cores and have same 3 MB of Intel Smart Cache ( L3 Cache). They have integrated graphics unit and both are made with same lithography – the processor has two dies – the two cores one one die are made with 32 nm and the graphics core and the memory controller on the second die is made with 45 nm.

Readers – do you too have questions or have to say something ?

    I get to choose between an on sale Toshiba C6555-S5129 notebook Intel Pentium 6200 for $419 new, and an HP dv6-3231nr that comes with core i3-370M.

    Same specs are almost identical:

    Windows 7 64 both
    Webcam, 4GB Ram, 320GB HD, 15.6″ HD screens.
    Toshiba has possibly better keyboard. And possibly better processor

    Toshiba: $419, new.
    HP: $499, new.

    Please advise
    I dont plan on getting the service plans, which laptop is better and which will hold up better? (The Toshiba, yes?)

    You said that the Core i3-370 is faster than Pentium P6200, but is it different between them so big? How long time is the different?

    My notebook has Intel core i3 370M as its processor, but its windows 7 experience index is 5.8. Can you tell me why?

  4. Christian says:

    Is the difference between the two processors big when gaming? (NOT with the integrated graphics, but with a spesific gpu)..!

  5. Anavi says:

    Instead of this notebook you may like to consider some core i3-2310M based notebooks. They are priced similarly and have more processing power.
