I have been looking around the internet for the meaning of intel processor suffixes, but so far I haven't been able to identify what the P at the of the core I3-6098P means. This is probably the first time I have ever seen the P suffix. Could some one help me identify its meaning?

1 Answer 1


What is the meaning of the Intel Processor P Suffix?

P used to mean a (Core 2) processor without an integrated GPU.

It was later redifined to to mean a processor with a slower integrated GPU.

P - Processor without integrated graphics controller.

Source Intel processor numbers (model numbers) of desktop CPUs

P-series: Back in the Core 2 days, a P-series chipset didn’t include an integrated GPU. Now, P-series chips just include slower integrated GPUs.

Source Pentium? Core i5? Core i7? Making sense of Intel’s convoluted CPU lineup

    @guest hence the quoted comment that says "Now, P-series chips just include slower integrated GPUs."

    @Mokubai: i3-6098P has HD 510 while i3-6100 has HD 530, which indeed is stronger iGPU. (I was baffled with "Processor without integrated graphics controller".)

    @guest I have clarified the answer.

    Sorted it out finally: Back in Core 2, GPU is not yet integrated into the CPU, it is in the chipset, eg. G31/G33/G45. P35/P45 has no iGPU. This is what "P-series chipset didn't include an integrated GPU" is referring to. i5-2380P/i5-2450P/i5-3350P have no iGPU. i3-6098P/i5-6402P have slower GT1. ==== Honestly I would say there is no consistent meaning with the suffix P. i5-2550K has no iGPU neither, why isn't it named i5-2550PK?
