Default What's the difference between AMD's 1055T 125 watt version and the 95 watt version?

Hi all!

A couple of months back I found a super deal on an AMD 1055T 125 watt CPU/motherboard combo. Now I see the 95 watt version of the 1055T is hitting the markets strong.

Can someone here tell me the difference between the two [other than 30 watts difference]? What are the pro's and con's of each version [Is one really a lot more energy efficient]?

Is there really all that big of a difference?

Thanks,

Soar

The stock volts is lower.
You can probably undervolt the 125W version to reach a 95W or lower TDP if that's what you want.

It probably as a newer, more energy efficient core.

The core is the same. It is probably just manufacturing standards being to the level that 100% of the cores they use are stable at lower volts (instead of say 99.9%)
