What does IPI mean in a processor?

Im buying a Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.5ghz.

Well the main problem is:

There are two items listed
PENTIUM DUAL CORE E5200 S-775 2.5 GHZ 2M B800 MHZ

and

PENTIUM DUAL CORE E5200 S-775 2.5 GHZ 2M B800(IPI)

What would be the difference? i searched but found nothing concrete.

Thanks

EDIT: Also, any one know if my motherboard would support it?
MB MODEL: G31MXP-K from foxconn

More about what processor
  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inter-processor_interrupt

    And yes your mobo should support it.
  2. Until today, I did not know there were 2 versions of the E5200. lol.

    Further searching shows there are INDEED 2 different E5200s.

    The "normal" one:
    http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLB9T
    Notice it dosen't have Intel TXT.

    Now the "other" one:
    http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLAY7
    Notice the TXT is enabled.

    I believe the "IPI" is referring to Intel TXT.

    Imo, go for the lowest priced one.

    Well, now that i think about it i guess thats what it means, since I live in Mexico but most computer stuff is in english, i thought the items weren't translated and asked about it here.

    Just one more thing :) What are the OC capabilities of this processor with the -stock- fan?

    Thanks a lot btw.
  4. I hear it OCs ok with stock, but if you invest an extra 20 into an aftermarket you'll get much more out of it.
