Table : Intel Pentium P6100 Benchmarking

Benchmarks Intel Pentium P6100
PassMark Score 1529
Super Pi 2M (Lower in better) 50 seconds
3D Mark 06 CPU 1840
Windows 7 Experience Score 5.7

The nominal clock frequency of the intel Pentium P6100 processor is 2.0 GHz. The Pentium P6100 is a dual core processor based upon the Arrandale architecture, the same architecture that powers the Intel Core i3 processors. However, the Pentium P6100 will have slightly inferior performance as compared to the similarly clocked Core i3 processor, mainly because the Hyperthreading is disabled. However, its performance is better than the similarly clocked core 2 processor owing mainly to the Integrated Memory Controller.

Intel Pentium P6100 Architecture

The package of the intel pentium P6100 consists of two dies. The first die contains a pair of 2 GHz processor sharing a 3 MB of L3 cache. The second die has an integrated DDR3 memory controller and an integrated HD graphics controller. The graphics controller runs at 500 MHz. The second die is manufactured using 45 nm lithography.

Built with 32 nm Lithography, the pentium P6100 processor has 2 cores. The P6100 has TDP rating of 35 Watts, which is suitable for the low power ( but not ultra low power) notebooks.

The communication with the chipset in P6100 is using high speed, high bandwidth differential DMI bus. This fast bus increases the throughput of the data communication with the peripherals.

Some benchmark results are available for Pentium P6100. The passmark score gives it a score of 1607 ( By comparison Intel Core i5 750 has a score of 4219). More benchmark results for Pentium P6100 are awaited.

Here are some of the Pros and Cons of the Pentium P6100

Pros of Intel Pentium P6100
– Competitively priced.
– Has integrated DDR3 memory controller.
– Integrated graphics controller – keeps the system cost low by eliminating the need of external graphics chip and still giving acceptable graphics performance

Cons of Intel Pentium P6100
– Does not support turbo boost for processor.
– Does not support Virtualization (VT-x)
– No support for AES.

Some of the recent notebook with Intel Pentium P6100 seen in the market include Acer eMachines D732 and E732, Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 and Z560 notebooks, Acer AS5742Z-4685 15.6-Inch Laptop, Fujitsu LIFEBOOK NH570 and LIFEBOOK A530/AH530, Lenovo G560 among others.

    I have an HP G72-227 with the Intel T4500. I was thinking of updating it with the Intel i3 or i5. Is it ok to do this without causing any possible problems?

    I have a Gateway PC (about 6 years old) that has a Pentium 4 processor, 250GB SATA HDD and 512MB DDR2 memory, can this be upgraded to accept a Pentium i3, i5 or i7 processor? or would size of the memory and hard drive also need to be increased? I reduce the amount of information stored on the hard drive by using a 2GB external hard drive.

    @D Hodkinson
    To Dave, absolutely not. The processor is commonly the one thing you can’t upgrade (or not easily) and certainly not from 6 year old motherboard technology to current day. If you want to cheaply speed up an old pc, try getting an SSD drive to replace your old IDE (most likely) disk. You can then also use it in any new pc so not wasted. Just depends how much storage you need but 60Gb versions are available for £75 or thereabouts.

    Hi Larry,
    Calling from France, where I can get a Samsung R730 laptop with a P6100 for 450 euro or with an i3-380M for 550 euro, all other specs equal (17″ 1600×900 screen, nVidia G310M 512 MB, 500 MB HD, 4GB RAM). I’m intending to use it ‘just’ for office apps, internet, and video watching with the option to view them on a larger external screen or TV through the HDMI (the G310M supports better than 1920×1080, I was told). I’m on a tight budget, so could use the 100 euro difference for a external HD (for back-up) etc. So my main question is: is there any good reason to go for the i3 version, for instance when viewing HD movies? (or is that properly dealt with by the G310M?)
    Thanks in advance for your advice.
