Power efficiency remains important to PC users and Intel and AMD have both made great strides to improve power efficiency. There are nearly a dozen processors in our power chart, but keep in mind some of the TDP’s of the processors:

  • Intel Pentium G3258 – 53 Watts
  • AMD A10-7800 – 65W
  • Intel Core i7-5775C – 65W
  • Intel Core i7-3770K – 77W
  • Intel Core i7-4770K – 84W
  • Intel Core i7-4970K – 88 W
  • Intel Core i7-2700K – 95W
  • AMD A10-7870K – 95W
  • AMD A10-6800K – 100W

Benchmark Results: The AMD A10-7870K APU is a 95W TDP processor, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that is uses more power than most recently reviewed processors. Our system was hitting 35.7W at idle and 139W at load with the 7870K APU at stock speeds.

    Is this review a copy pasta from Toms Hardware? Comparing a Budget APU with a gaming processor with a dedicated video card is right up their alley. LOL

    Good job comparing an APU to i7s.
