In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Pentium N3700 1.6GHz is noticeably better than the Intel Pentium P6200 2.13GHz when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Pentium N3700 1.6GHz was released over three years more recently than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz, and so the Pentium N3700 1.6GHz is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz when running the latest games.

The Pentium N3700 1.6GHz has 2 more cores than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz. With 4 cores, the Pentium N3700 1.6GHz is much less likely to struggle with the latest games, or bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Pentium N3700 1.6GHz and Pentium P6200 2.13GHz are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz has a 0.53 GHz faster frequency, this is not always an indicator that it will be superior in performance, despite frequency being crucial when trying to avoid GPU bottlenecking. In this case, however, the difference is enough that it possibly indicates the superiority of the Pentium N3700 1.6GHz.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Pentium N3700 1.6GHz has a 1536 KB bigger L2 cache than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz, and although the Pentium N3700 1.6GHz does not appear to have an L3 cache, its larger L2 cache means that it wins out in this area.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

The Pentium N3700 1.6GHz has a 27 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz, and was created with a 10 nm smaller manufacturing technology. What this means is the Pentium N3700 1.6GHz will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewPentium N3700 1.6GHz is a Budget Quad Core Mobile Processor, based on the 14nm Airmont Micro-Architecture.

It offers 4 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 1.6Hz that go up to 2.0Hz, in Burst Frequency Mode and 2MB of L2 Cache.
Among its many features, BurstFrequency and Virtualization are activated.

The Processor Integrates Weak Graphics called HD Pentium N3700, with 12 Execution Units, initially clocked at 400MHz and that go up to 700MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 6W.

It offers average performance. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications.
Arrandale is the code name for a mobile Intel processor, sold as mobile Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 as well as Celeron and Pentium. It is closely related to the desktop Clarkdale processor; both use dual-core dies based on the 32 nm Westmere shrink of the Nehalem microarchitecture and have integrated Graphics as well as PCI Express and DMI links.
Arrandale is the successor of the 45 nm Core microarchitecture based Penryn processor that is used in the many mobile Intel Core 2, Celeron and Pentium Dual-Core processors. While Penryn typically used both a north bridge and a south bridge, Arrandale already contains the major north bridge components, which are the memory controller, PCI Express for external graphics, integrated graphics and the DMI connector, making it possible to build more compact systems without a separate northbridge or discrete graphics as Lynnfield.
