nice... so the table is turned... now we have cpus that use less power than a lamp but we have gpus as hungry as a toaster or if you put multiple gpus you have a complete vacuum cleaner (sound included) lol
so, the psus ultimatly will continue as high as they are...
Thanks for pointing that out. Minor oversight on my part.
Well, including the memory controller this should be just over 65Watt -- AMD would therefore call that very same CPU a 89Watt CPU.
It should be interesting to see how AMD and Intel compare when Intel releases processors with integrated memory controllers. AMD announced recently new energy efficient X3 Phenoms that are clocked slower than these chips and have a 65W TDP I believe, although they are much cheaper.
