Latest i3, i5 or i7 processors hardware question.
« on: June 03, 2016, 03:54:22 am »
 I am going to upgrade my core hardwares. I am going to built on a microatx motherboard and probably choose intel i3 or i5 processor.
I know that nvidia is preferred way to for lmce.

So here is my question. Based on the fact that these modern processor with integrated graphic support, would it work with LMCE?

That way I would get hdmi video and audio out of my motherboard itself. Only have to throw in an extra  PCI ethernet card and fly off. 

I hope my question make sense. Please advise.

Modern intel integrated graphics in i3/i5/i7 are reported to work *very* well for hdmi video and audio.

I have been using a Sandybridge MD for a long time. Apart from some HDMI incompatibilities with my display device, there are no issues from the LinuxMCE perspective.
