By

To establish an improved basis for making a comparison, we overclocked the Phenom X4 9100e to 2.40 GHz and compared it with the Phenom X4 9750, whose standard clock rate is 2.40 GHz.

Under full load, Phenom X4 9100e consumes a respectable 38.55 W less than Phenom X4 9750, though both CPUs provide the same computing performance.
