In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz 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 Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz was released less than a year after the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz, and so they are likely to have similar levels of support, and similarly optimized performance when running the latest games.

The Pentium P6200 2.13GHz and the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz both have 2 cores, and so are quite likely to struggle with the latest games, or at least bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them. With a decent accompanying GPU, the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz and the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz may still be able to run slightly older games fairly effectively.

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 P6200 2.13GHz and the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz are from the same family of CPUs, and thus their clock speeds are directly comparable. With this in mind, it is safe to say that with a 0.8 GHz faster base clock rate, the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz manages to provide significantly better performance than the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz.

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 P6200 2.13GHz and the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz have the same L2 cache size, and the same L3 cache size, so in terms of cache-related gaming performance, we have to look back to the clock rate, where the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz wins out.

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 Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz has a 17 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Pentium P6200 2.13GHz (though they were created with the same size 32 nm manufacturing technology). What this means is the Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz will consume slightly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill slightly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewArrandale 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.
Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz is a super energy efficient mobile processor based on the 32nm, Nehalem architecture.

It offers 2 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 1.33GHz, which may go up to 1.86GHz and 3MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Boost and Virtualization are activated.

The processor integrates very weak Graphics called Intel i5 470UM, with 12 Execution Units, initially clocked at 166MHz which go up to 500MHz, in Turbo Mode and share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 18W.

Its performance is below the average and so most demanding games will not run optimally.
