Intel Pentium 967 is a dual core processor that runs at 1.3GHz and is meant for entry level notebooks. Even though it is based on Sandy Bridge architecture, many of the features like hyperthreading, turbo boost and AES have been deactivated. Graphics are handled by Intel HD graphics 2000 that run at 350MHz to 1GHz.
TDP of the Pentium 967 is ultrabook CPU-like – 17 watts. Companies like Acer are now using this CPU in their entry level notebooks like Acer Aspire V5-431 and V5-531. Here are the benchmark results:
Sorry for the typo above. It is Pentium 967, not Pentium P947
1) PCMark Vantage – 2997
2) Cinebench R10: Rendering Single CPUs 64Bit – 2116
3) 3DMark 06 (CPU) – 1319
4) Passmark – 1246
As you can see above the performance of the Celeron 867 and Pentium 947 is almost the same. In fact, in daily use, even Celeron 847 will not feel much different, unless you are sporting an ultrabook notebook with the new Core i5 3427U processor.
