Intel working on Pentium 997 ULV as well

Written by Slobodan Simic

Coming in Q4


In addition to a couple of mobile Pentium CPUs based on both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge architectures that will be launched at the end of Q3 or early Q4, Intel will also launch the Pentium 997 ULV CPU, a dual-core 1.6GHz CPU with 17W TDP.

The full list of new mobile Pentium CPUs includes Sandy Bridge based 987 and B980 as well as the Ivy Bridge based 2020M and 2117U CPUs. The last but not the least is the Pentium 997 ULV, spotted by CPU-World.com. Similar to the already detailed Pentium 987, the Pentium 997 ULV is also based on Sandy Bridge architecture, has two CPU cores, 2MB of L3 cache, integrated HD graphics and does not feature any advanced technologies like Hyper-threading or Turbo Boost.

The CPU works at 1.6GHz and has a 17W TDP. The Pentium 997 ULV is clearly a budget ULV part as it will end up slower than Ivy Bridge based Intel Pentium 2117U CPU.

Some of these CPUs have already shown up in some notebook specs sheets and we will probably see more of them in the Q4.
