45 Watt Xeon WITH Intel HD 2000 dr_disciple May 12th, 11, 11:17 PM #1

A while ago, there was a 20watt Xeon with no VGA. Now, there is a 45watt Xeon WITH VGA (Intel HD 2000).

How many shouting MO here?

If you are looking to upgrade your old X58/LGA1366 based and at the same time having that AES, you may want to consider the similarly priced E5620 too. The TDP is of course much more than this chip but considering this as a desktop/workstation, it may not be that significant. You can config the E5620 as dual processor too. You get that triple channel memory vs 2 channel on this model. Also, L3 cache is 12Mb vs 8Mb. Not to mention that there is the 2600k out there that's cheaper than this chip.

So, it will boils down to final pricing and of course your usage scenario. For gaming, the integrated graphics will disappoint anyway and you will most likely put a dedicated graphic card.

Sometimes, its not so much about the price. Many of my clients asked for those 2390T, 2500T and this Xeon but end up not ordering because the CPU are Tray CPU and comes without HSF and with 1yr warranty only. So before you guys start asking for price, do consider the cons first

Getting my hands on these are easy, it's a matter of how you guys react to the value.

Not so sure what dif will the average user get for going the Xeon way, but I think a 2500T will be a better choice for me since it should run just as fast, comes with a bundled heatsink, plus, the price will be better if I am not mistaken. Xeons probably get the better chips though.

I guess the "higher initial pay up" for premium heatsink/fan has just paid off. Can reuse the heatsink even with new processor/sometimes new socket. Really don't mind using the tray CPU, furthermore based on my experience CPU RMA rate is very very low. Most probably, those returned CPU are the result of improper voltage settings (i.e.: extreme overclocking).

To reiterate my earlier post, the bottom line lies in pricing and your own use case scenario. Big plus for this chip is lower TDP than most desktop processor (say the 2500K) and ECC Memory support. Not necessarily it will be faster than 2500K.

Oh whoops. Haha. Guess it then boils down to the price and if you need the ECC memory support then.
