Power Consumption


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.
