I'm looking to upgrade my HTPC from socket 775 to something that is more power efficient and I'm considering the Haswell based G3420. I know that this part uses GT1 graphics with 10 EU's instead of 20 on the 4xxx Haswell GT2 parts. Does anybody know what difference that will have on image quality when watching movies? Any meaningful difference in post-processing that I will notice?

I can't find any HTPC reviews for Haswell GT1.
