Intel Core i7-2600K (and friends) Sandy Bridge Processor Review
Power Consumption and Performance per Watt
just as important and relevant in recent years as judging performance
of these processors.
Well if that isn't the picture of efficiency, what is? The four new Sandy Bridge processors, including the Core i7-2600K are using much less power under a peak load than their competing options like the Core i7-875K Lynnfield processor or even the Core i7-980X Gulftown. In fact, even as a group, the four SNB options are using about as much power as the dual-core Core i5-655K!
