Pentium B940 Vs AMD E-350

The Intel’s Pentium B940 processor and the AMD’s E-350 APU makes an interesting comparison as both of these are intended for the entry level nortebooks promising decent graphics performance with their integrated GPU ( Graphics Processing Unit). While Intel still calls its Pentium B940 a CPU, AMD has  rechristened it to APU or the Accelerated Processing Unit formed with the fusion the processor and the Graphics units.

Now, the quick answer is that the Pentium B940 outperforms the AMD E-350 – broadly speaking,  in the performance. Let us take a look at the following charts.

Table : Intel Pentium B940 Vs AMD E-350 Feature Differences

Feature Intel Pentium B940 AMD E-350
Core Frequency 2.0 GHz 1.60 GHz
No. Of Cores 2 ( No Hyperthreading) 2
Cache Organization 2 MB L3 2 x 512 KB
Turbo Frequency No Turbo No Turbo
TDP Rating 35 Watts 18 Watts
64 Bit Support Y Y
Lithography 32 nm 40 nm
Integrated Memory Controller DDR3-1333 DDR3-1066
Integrated Graphics Yes, 650 MHz Base, 1.1 GHz Max Yes, HD 6310, 500 MHz

Table : Benchmarking Comparison

Benchmarks Intel Pentium B940 AMD E-350
PassMark Score 1977 735
Super Pi 2M (Lower in better) Not available 111 seconds
3D Mark 06 CPU Not available 1010
Windows 7 Experience Score Not available 3.8

The operating frequency of 2.0 GHz for the Pentium B940 is too much of an advantage over the E-350′s 1.6 GHz. But there may still be some reason why you may be willing to go with the E-350 – it has lower power consumption and the notebooks based upon E-350 may be $50 to $100 cheaper than the corresponding notebooks based upon the B940.

Other than this, the general verdict dictates a win for Pentium B940.
