Hi, I seek informations about CPU electrical consumption.

Hi, I seek informations about CPU electrical consumption. I don't find anything in the web. I look for for something like "benchmark" but for electrical consumption in severals uses (differents games, differents software (average web use, office softwares, media player, etc...) all things equal otherwise, of course.

 

Is there something like that somewhere in the web?

Did Intel already did the job to inform consumers and set a table of this?

Every processor page on http://ark.intel com details the processor's highest power consumption (TDP). Is this not what you are looking for?

Thank you but no.

I don't really understand what is a thermal power consumption (or dissipation) in Watt. What I seek is Electrical consumption not thermal.

You know, how many watt I need to make ce CPU work. It's to choice que proper CPU for my next laptop.

I don’t understand.

Why it’s not possible to find any information about electric consumption. Is it a secret? 

Intel give no information and don't tell why.

Hello Sapin

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


Regarding your inquiry, it is worth mentioning that the information provided by n_scott_pearson is correct and this refers to the Thermal Design Power (TDP) of each processor.


Please let me explain it this way: Is the TDP equal to the processor’s power consumption?

TDP stands for Thermal Design Power, in watts, and refers to the power consumption under the maximum theoretical load. Power consumption is less than TDP under lower loads. The TDP is the maximum power that one should be designing the system for. This ensures operation to published specs under the maximum theoretical workload.


TDP value shown in https://ark.intel.com under "CPU Specifications" section is the approximate power consumption of the processor when running at the base frequency. The public datasheets we have available will provide this information in the Power Management sections, but the easiest reference is going to be https://ark.intel.com


For more information, please refer to this link: Thermal Design Power (TDP) in Intel® Processors >> https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000055611/processors.html

We hope this clarifies your concerns.
