First test of Intel Atom - system consumes less than 40W

Posted on Thursday, April 17 2008 @ 05:06:53 CEST by

The guys from VR Zone got their hands on a Intel Little Falls ES mini-ITX solution that features the Intel Atom processor. Their motherboard came with a 1.6GHz CPU with Hyper-Threading technology and some quick tests indicate the platform uses very little power. They hooked the motherboard up to a FPS Everest PSU, 7200RPM 80GB HDD and a Serial ATA DVD burner and saw a total power consumption just shy of 40W:
This is the first time that Intel incorporated their own chipset into their mini-ITX solution, previously employing SiS chipset solutions with their processors. we ran some power test on the board, and together with our FSP Everest power supply, 7200rpm 80gb hard drive and a sata dvd-rw, it draws roughly about 32 watts (assuming 80% efficiency, power meter shows about 39watts) of power.
