Hi Intel Community,
I'm building a NAS and am aiming at using the Intel DBS1200BTSR motherboard for it and I've got two questions.
Can the Intel DBS1200BTSR be used with Sata port multipliers?
Note that both don't slot into PCI lanes.
The board has the 202 Chipset in it, but I couldn't find if it can or can't support it.
What is the advantage/disadvantage of choosing the Core i3-3220T over the Xeon 1220Lv2?
From what I can find, they are very similar except the i3 doesn't have VT-d or turbo boost 2.0. But it has inbuilt graphics and Idle C-states. While the Xeon does have the former two but not the latter two.
Are C-states as good as turbo boost for someone concerned about power consumption?
