Power Consumption

Power Consumption

We’ll show you energy consumption for the entire PC (motherboard / processor / graphics card / memory / SSD). This number depends and will vary per motherboard (added ICs / controllers / Wi-Fi / Bluetooth) and according to your PSU (efficiency). Keep in mind that we measure the ENTIRE PC’s power consumption, so not just the processor alone. Your average power consumption can differ from our numbers if you add optical drives, HDDs, soundcards, etc. 

I want to make it very clear that power consumption measurements will differ between PCs and setups. Your attached components use power, but your motherboard can also have additional ICs installed, like an audio controller, 3rd party chips, network controllers, extra SATA controllers, extra USB controllers, and so on. These parts all consume power, so these results are a subjective indication. Next to that, we stress all CPU cores 100%, thus showing peak power consumption. Unless you transcode video in the right software, your average power consumption is going to be much lower.

In the below situation - there was only the required minimum of devices plugged in.




The CPU (Ryzen 7 3700X ) Package temperature reaches ~67 Degrees C under load (wPrime 1024M) with an AIO cooler.
