I’m planning to buy an assembled desktop soon. I decided to stick to 2nd Generation Intel i5 Processor, costing around $215. I checked the Intel site and got two processors of my choice, Intel i5-2500 and Intel i5-2500K. But the specification and price difference made me confused.
Intel i5-2500 has Intel® vPro Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d), Intel® Trusted Execution Technology which is unavailable in Intel i5-2500k. But the price of Intel i5-2500k is higher ($216) than Intel i5-2500 ($205).
I don’t have any idea of the above three specifications. Which one should I choose? Please see offers here.
