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
