  • AMD power consumption tests

    Over at Tomshardware they have tested 35 AMD processors for energy efficiency.,1925-12.html

    Looks like the Phenom is in need of a little work.

    Shame they didn't include any overclocking or Intel chips in the test
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    The Phenoms do indeed pull a lot of power. The inefficiency of the chip in terms of power consumption gets worse and worse as you increase core voltage. There's power consumption figures on various forums and some small review sites.
