    What is the relation between TDP and Power Consumtion for Intel CPUs

    svata

      Or can someone tell me what is the maximum power consumtion of Core i5 750 and Core i7 920, not their TDP ? Thank you in advance!

          Higher TDP will give higher power consumption, clearly.

           

          Intel don't publish the maxium power consumption, "Intel's TDP is a "round up" average of power measurements of processor intensive benchmarks." (from AnandTech)

           

          However looking at the technical spec's for the processors they say that the max voltage for an i7 920 is 1.375V and current draw is 145A this give a max power draw of 200W and for the i7 750 it's 1.4V and 110A this gives 154W

           

          I think that these would be virtually impossiable to achive though, which is why Intel publish the TDP which is a realistic value based on actual measurements.
