ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC Review

Total System Power Consumption

Throughout all of our benchmarking and testing, we 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 the base platform 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.

Total System Power Consumption
Tested at the Outlet

Despite offering much better performance than its predecessor, the Vision 3D 252B consumed less power under both idle and load conditions. We were only loading up the CPU with Cinebench in this test, however. In situations where both the CPU and GPU are loaded up (like in a game like L4D2, for example), power consumption will be higher. We saw peak power consumption of 89 watts in L4D2 to be specific.
