What is TDP? Tags: CPUs Heat Last response: May 9, 2004 2:59 AM in CPUs Share Shadowplay May 9, 2004 1:31:59 AM I'm doing a paper right now on CPUs and I didn't know exactly what TDP is in relation to CPU's. I see that it's measured in watts which would lead me to believe it has something to do with heat but what exactly is it and what does it stand for?
