Core i7Power Consumption

To measure power we used our Seasonic Power Angel a nifty little tool that measures a variety of electrical values. We used a high-end UPS as our power source to eliminate any power spikes and to condition the current being supplied to the test systems. The Seasonic Power Angel was placed in line between the UPS and the test system to measure the power utilization in Watts. We measured the idle load after 15 minutes of totally idle activity on the desktop with no processes running that mandated additional power demand. Load was measured taking extended peak power measurements while running a variety of software applications in the background to achieve 100% load on all cores. Something to remember when looking at our load temperatures is that we are running an NVIDIA GTX based graphics card on our test rig, and they aren't power misers when loaded.

I checked on prices the i7-920 is almost the same price as the i7-950. Why? It is hard to find the 920. I assume that the 950 is better then the 920.

The free market sometimes behave s with random stupidity, and this situation is quite common, especially for CPUs. They are no longer producing the "920", so there is limited supply, but the "950" is a direct replacement, so what does it matter?
