i7 980x TDP and Power Consumption

Recommended Posts

Under CPUID it shows the Thermal Design Power as 4095.9W, and shows the Thermal Design Current as 4095.9A.

Under CPU it shows 4095 as the Typical Power.

TDP on Intels site is 130w.

I would also like to know if there are plans for power consumption monitoring similar to what HWMonitor does? (HWMonitor currently doesn't show power consumption for the 980x either though)

Thanks,

HWMonitor doesn't really monitor CPU Power Consumption, it just reports a rough estimatation basen on current P-State (voltage) and maximum TDP/TDC. And that's the reason it doesn't report the power consumption here, because this SKU doesn't specify max TDP/TDC (it's unlimited).

There are other tools able to really monitor CPU power consumption on Nehalem and later CPUs based on Energy Counters (independant on Max TDP/TDC values, but requires platform enabling in PCH/BIOS).

Other tools include AIDA64, of course ;) But that feature generally requires a platform that supports such readout, and AFAIK LGA1366 platforms do not support that due to lack of hardware implementation in ICH10 south bridge.

Yeah, of course, I forgot this litte detail :(
