Here are some questions you may have in your mid when comparing the AMD’s Phenom ii N830 and the Intel’s Pentium P6200.

Q.  Is it true that the Pentium P6200 t has Integrated Graphics Unit ? What is its implication on comparison with Phenom ii N830 ?

A. Yes, the Intel’s Pentium P6200 has integrated Graphics Unit which helps in video encoding, video display and some entry level graphics.  A Phenom ii N830 based system will have a separate discrete graphics. The performance will depend upon the graphics component.

Q. So which one is better  ?

A. Phenom ii N830 seems to be better in overall performance and in real life computing. The Pentium P6200 does takes lead in the Super Pi calculation, but it is not reflective of the real world performance.

Some more details of Phenom ii N830

The N830 competes with the Intel’s entry level Core i3 processors ( and also with the Pentium P6100, P6200, P6300 etc) and does well in case where the number of threads are more. For low to moderate performace it is a good processor with its decent architecture. It has integrated Memory Controller and a fast HyperTransport Bus.

Some more details of Intel Pentium P6200

The Pentium P6200 belongs to the Arrandale architecture, the same architecture that powers the first generation core i3 processors. It enjoys the benefit of integrated memory controller and is suitable for low cost entry level notebooks. It has integrated gpu unit with entry level graphics performance. The lack of the Hyperthreading (One thread per core) reduces performance slightly as compared to the similarly clocked core i3 processors. Intel has attempted to gain by encashig the Pentium brand name that it created over the years
