Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD 740G chipset - AMD 740G chipset
Wed, August 13 2008 | 12:38AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The greatest strength of this platform is likely the power consumption. At idle, with 2GB of memory, a 500 GB HD, a BD drive, and a X2 4050e, the system was pulling a very meager 55 watts from the wall. At full load it was pulling 91 watts. If we consider that the Atom and Nano platforms that Ryan tested last week were around the same idle power, it is impressive to think that a comparatively fast dual core processor with a fairly robust integrated graphics portion is sitting in the same area at idle, and at full bore it is about 20 watts higher than the Nano with its VIA/S3 Chrome based chipset."
