Intel Pentium P6200 Processor review

October 27th, 2010

The Intel Pentium P6200 is a dual core processor clocked at  2.13 GHz .  Based upon the same Arrandale architecture as the Intel Core i3 processor, it lacks Hyperthreading, which reduces its performance by an order of 10% compared to similarly clocked Core i3 Sandy Bridge. One of the decent feature of this architecture is  the Integrated Memory Controller, by means of which the processor can communicate with  the memory directly. 

The performance of the Pentium P6200 is better than the similarly clocked, earlier Core 2 Duo Processor.

The Arrandale based Pentium P6200 is clocked at 2.13 GHz while the earlier Core 2 T7400 is clocked similarly at 2. 16 GHz. Check out the performance difference in the Pentium P6200 and the Core 2 7400.

The pentium P6200 has 3 MB of smart cache.  In the smart cache the two cores share the Cache and amount of the cache allotted to the individual cores can be dynamically adjusted  based upon the demand. The communication with the chipset is using fast differential DMI Bus at 2.5 GT/s. The DMI Bus replaces the older Front side Bus making communication with the peripherals free from bottleneck.

The Integrated Memory Controller in the Pentium P6200  can support a maximum of 8 GB of memory. It can support the DDR3-800 and DDR3-1066. The integrated memory controller reduces the memory latency and improves the overall processor performance.

Built with 32 nm technology, the intel Pentium P6200 has a TDP rating at moderate 35 Watts. The Pentium P6200 has integrated intel HD graphics. You can get a mid range graphics performance with the intel HD integrated graphics. Do not expect to get very good performance for high end gaming. If you are looking for a good integrated graphics performance, you may like to wait till the launch of the Sandy Bridge processor.

The nominal frequency of the graphics section is 500 MHz.  The graphics section has its independent turbo and the maximum turbo frequency supported is 667 MHz.

The Pentium P6200 bumps up the frequency of P6100 by 133 MHz ( P6100 is a 2 GHz processor). We should therefore see a performance improvement of the order of 5% in the P6200 as compared to the Pentium P6100.

On the down side Intel Pentium P6200 does not support the intel virtualization technology (Vt-x). The virtualization technology helps in systems than seamless transition between two operating systems.

We found very few notebooks powered by Pentium P6200 at the time of writing. Some models of HP G62t do contain the Intel Pentium P6200 processor

    Thank-you for this very useful review. I found a laptop for sale with this processor and wondered if it was worthwhile purchasing (because I always think of pentiums as being old tech). This review nicely addressed the problem

    Hello.you Kindly, What did you mean about: (You can get a mid range graphics performance with the intel HD integrated graphics. Do not expect to get very good performance for high end gaming)
    I need to know please if the laptop good for gaming and other stuff:
    if this laptop has this features:

    *2.13GHz Intel® Pentium® Processor P6200
    *4GB DDR3 (1 Dimm) Ram
    *320GB Hard drive
    *Radeon HD 6470M Graphics Seymour XT with 1024MB DDR3
    *Microsoft Windows 7 Premium

    Thanks

    I AM HAPPY WITH THIS PROCESSOR. I CAN PLAY ALMOST ALL 3D GAMES ON MY LAPTOP. IT HAS INBUILT INTEL 1GB GRAPHIC CARD THAT IS TOO GOOD. WHEN I PURCHASED LAPTOP I DIDNT KNOW ABOUT IT. I WAS UNABLE TO PLAY SOME OF HD 3D GAMES ON MY PC BUT I CAN PLAY ALL THOSE GAMES ON MY LAPTOP HAVING HM55 CHIPSET P6200 PROCESSOR. ITS BEST VALUE LAPTOP… SYSTEM RATING OF MY LAPTOP ON WINDOWS 7 IS 3.9…

    My brother recommended I might like this website. He was entirely right.
    This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

    @Richard
    The P6200 processor has an integrated HD graphics card. The author was referring to the performance of the integrated HD graphics card, however your specs suggest that the manufacturer of your laptop has installed separate ATI Radeon HD 6470M graphics card (which will render the internal graphics card on your processor obsolete).
    The reviewer is specifically referring to the performance of integrated HD graphics card (that is automatically attached to the P6200 processor). A separate graphics card, in your case the ATI Radeon HD 6470M, will improve the overall performance of your laptop significantly.
    In other words, how well the integrated HD graphics card performs does not concern your laptop (because you have a separate graphics card which is not reviewed here).

    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it
    for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to
    construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this
    from. thank you
