Hi all, I'm trying to decide on which CPU I should buy out of the above two.
Intel E3 1230: http://ark.intel.com/products/52271
Intel E3 1235: http://ark.intel.com/products/52272
The E3 1230 does not have on-die video, wehere as the the E3 1235 does have on-die video (Intel HD Graphics P3000).
The E3 1230 TDP is 80, but the E3 1235 TDP is 95.
The motherboard that I have bought (Tyan S5510GM3NR, reviewed here: http://www.servethehome.com/tyan-s5510- ... rd-review/
) does not require a CPU with the on-die graphics.
However, I would preferably like to purchase the E3 1235, as I may need to use it on another board that does require that controller present for on-board video (I have another board lieing around that is compatible).
So, cliff notes - my question is this. If I purchase the E3 1235, will this use more power when compared to the E3 1230, if I DON'T have the on-board video enabled? Or will it be the same?
Thanks very much!!
