Intel Pentium 987 

Released July, 2012
  • 1.5 GHz
  • Dual core
6.4 Out of 10

The Intel Pentium 987 is an ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processor best suited for smaller notebooks or subnotebooks. The Pentium 987 is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture and sports two, clocked at 1.5GHz, cores with a 2MB L3 cache. Unfortunately Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading are disabled in this model. However the Pentium 987 integrates a Intel HD Graphics card- clocked at 350MHz and capable of playing high definition films- and offers a very low power consumption, providing for an increased battery life.
