on SiSandra, under the Power Management Efficiency benchmark, my processor is shown to require only 52.94 watts. this is a 65w processor. Is something wrong? BTW: my "score" for this benchmark is even below a e6700 (11k MIPS), at 9016MIPS.
Say hello to one of the many features of your new 45nm Core2 processor. The wattage rating on a processor is a description of how much heat needs to be removed to keep it at an operational temperature. Due to the efficiency of the Core2 design, they usually run under their 65w spec.
