Pentium-M 733 ULV performance?

by navimarin / June 27, 2005 5:37 AM PDT

Does anybody know something about the performance of a Pentium-M 733 1.1GHz? I didnt find anything on googlin though the web. There was a thread which was about the 725 i think where they said that the 1MB L2-Cache is a handicap. The 733 now has 2MB aswell and a dothan-core. Can you compare it with an Pentium 4 like the normal Pentium-M (Pentium 4 X 2) or something like that?

On average 2X.

If you need anything more exacting, you'll have to run a benchmark.

Thats the problem. I dont have a notebook yet. But i want to buy one and now i have to decide between a normal Pentium-M and the ulv version. A friend of mine who is a hardware freak said that the Pentium-M processors loose more power the lower the frequence gets. So the power is not linear. And it would be fine to see a benchmark or something like that before. Or if you can say that the ulv 1.1 is like a pentium 4 2.2.

Not like. Close in performance to.

In reply to: compare?

The 2X is a general performance comparison between the 2 CPU families. If "close in performance" is not exact enough for you, then a benchmark must be found or done.

It rarely is the bottomline issue since some want to play games and the CPU is not the issue but the display chipset.

Hope it helps.

I found someone who bought a notebook with this cpu. He said he'll do a bench for me. Happy

I know that this CPU is not for gaming, but it would ne fine to run compile a kernel faster than on a 1GHz Normal-Pentium system. Happy

Thanks so fare.

Actually could be a great game machine.

It's more than 2 to 4 times what a XBOX has. And my kid's 1.0GHz Athlon was great at games with a nice 3D card. The CPU was not the bottleneck there.

-> Compile time will be hampered not by this CPU but the hard disk speed. Here's an example.

My old p3-600 would boot Windows 2000 in over 4 minutes. I did all I know and couldn't break the 4 minute mark. I looked over the machine and replaced the hard disk with a nice 5400 RPM disk and the boot time dropped to under 2 minutes. It wasn't a CPU or RAM issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
