    Default Amd e-450 motherboards actual power consumption

    Hi all.
    I am building a new nas/xbmc machine and am having a tough time deciding whether to go for Intel Atom/ION, or i should try an Amd fusion based motherboard instead. I am struggling to get the actual power consumption. The machine will be running 24/7 so power consumption is important.

    http://hothardware.com/Reviews/AMD-Z...review/?page=8

    Numbers are very nice, but looking elsewhere it tells a different story:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...s,2958-16.html

    I know both pages are reviews of the AMD e-350 but they share the same TDP so they should be comparable. Could not find any other info

    Can anyone shed more light on this subject? Is the e-450 able to compete with Intel ATOM/ION when it comes down to power usage?

    Best Regards

    Daniel

    Not quite the same ~ but probably similar enough to draw a conclusion...

    This is great, was just something like that i was looking for. It would suggest that the Amd Zacate is almost similar when it comes to power consumption as the Intel Atom. It does have a better idle usage though. 19 watt as opposed to the Intel Atom which runs full speed all the time (30 watt) as it does not have Intel speedstep technology. Thank you so much for the link :-)

    Best regards
    Daniel
