Intel proposes power efficiency focused processor benchmark

Posted on Friday, September 29 2006 @ 02:12:05 CEST by

Pat Gelsiner from Intel mentioned at the IDF that Intel is working on a benchmark that will focus on power efficiency of a processor.
If you are closely following benchmark values in processor tests than you may soon find a new, somewhat standardized official discipline, which has been covered by Tom's Hardware for quite a while. According to Gelsinger, Intel is working with Bapco on "Ecomark," a Sysmark-based benchmark that will take into account sleep times of a processor and even indicate how the user has to spend to run a computer system (without monitor) based on a very specific processor. Preliminary numbers provided by Intel indicate that an entry-level desktop Core 2 Duo system may cost just under $14 per year, while the mobile T7600 version is estimated to cost less than $10.
