I was looking to build a htpc in sff. Intel website says it is released already, but I can't find it online.

First I've heard of this CPU. How does it differ from a 9700k or a 9700, aside from slower clocks?

Looks like it's a low wattage part just like all the previous T versions. 35W TDP is pretty good for 8c8t CPU which makes it play nice with small cases.

I do think it's overkill for HTPC. I would advise OP to get AMD 2200G/2400G/3200G/3400G and be done with it, it's going to be plenty for HTPC at a fraction of the price.

I need it to be intel cpu so i can use it to play 4k blu rays. For some reason you need intel IG to play 4k blu ray

Just get a 9700 or 9700K and change the TDP in the BIOS. Honestly you probably wouldn't even need to change anything as it will thermally throttle itself if it needed to anyways.

Where did you read that ? I can't believe that. Do you have a link ?

I think it's may require Play Ready or something like that for the DRM, which I believe only Intel supports ATM. Actually, Radeon 5700 Series supports it now, too, so that should work as well. (If that is indeed the issue)

Yes, but a little more info.

Large cooler, like BeQuiet! Shadow Rock 2, and OP can set the power limit of the CPU to be hard capped at 45W, and lower the voltage on the CPU, if OP's Mobo allows this, by 0.125v. That way the CPU will stay completely cool and will lower the power draw, while maintaining relatively high clocks.

Anybody can do the same thing with for example 9400F. Lower the voltage by 0.125v and you get around 10W lower power draw while still maintaining the same clock speeds.
