    Core i 'T' processors - real power usage vs. TDP

    ThunderBlade

      Hi,

       

      I'm planning to build a new PC and I'm looking for low heat, low power consumption, but I also want performance. I am very glad Intel does the 'T' variants of the Core i series - seem great to me. However, the ARK page lists them all at 35W TDP. As far as I understand, that's the maximum heat they produce under heavy load. But what's the maximum power usage for each of them? The i7 with its many cores and big cache, surely needs more power than the i5, or i3, although all of them are listed with 35W TDP?

       

      Looking for enlightenment.

       

      Cheers,
