Techpowerup found a test on an Asian hardware site that indicates AMD's upcoming 45nm Deneb processors use 12 percent less power than their 65nm Agena predecessors.
In idle, the 45nm CPU-based system's power consumption was measured to be 147W compared 154W of the 65nm CPU-based setup. In load, the margin increased with the 45nm CPU-based system running at 176W compared to 200W of the 65nm CPU-based setup.
