AMD Kaveri Update: A10-7800 APU Review
Throughout all of our benchmarking and testing, we also monitored how much power our test systems consumed using a power meter. Our goal was to give you all an idea as to how much power each configuration used while idling and while under a heavy workload. Please keep in mind that we were testing total system power consumption at the outlet here, not just the power being drawn by the processors alone.
AMD must have been turning the dials and tweaking Kaveri these last few months, because despite having higher-clocks and a better performing GPU block, the A10-7800 consumed slightly less power than the A8-7600 we evaluated back in January.
