    Intel Skylake CPU power consumption comparison




      I've recently decided to buy a intel skylake cpu for my home automation server, where I have narrowed to the following CPU's to choose from:


      Intel® Pentium® Processor G4400T (3M Cache, 2.90 GHz)

      Intel® Pentium® Processor G4400 (3M Cache, 3.30 GHz)


      Intel® Core™ i3-6300T Processor (4M Cache, 3.30 GHz)

      Intel® Core™ i3-6300 Processor (4M Cache, 3.80 GHz)


      Intel® Core™ i5-6600T Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)

      Intel® Core™ i5-6600 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz)


      Intel® Core™ i7-6700T Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz)

      Intel® Core™ i7-6700 Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.00 GHz)


      My server should be powerful for computer vision tasks and energy saving when it is not processing. At the same time it should be as cheap as possible (with a trade-off for computation power, which I have to decide).


      The one question I would like to get answered is the idle power consumption for each of these CPU's (no dedicated graphics card will be included) and the power consumption at full load for the same conditions. As operating system I would use whether debian, arch linux, slackware, centos or linux mint. I couldnt find a site which shows measured values of idle power consumption of those cpu's. An estimation would be an alternative, if there are no comparable measurements yet.


      Thanks in advance!
