TEST METHODOLOGY

Test Setup:


CPU-Z screenshot: Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition.



System device listing.

Measurement and Analysis Tools

  • CPU-Z to monitor CPU frequency and voltage.
  • CPUBurn K7 processor stress software.
  • Prime95 processor stress software.
  • FurMark stability test to stress the integrated GPU.
  • Cyberlink PowerDVD to play video.
  • SpeedFan to monitor temperature and fan speeds.
  • Seasonic Power Angel AC power meter, used to measure the power consumption of the system.
  • Custom-built, four-channel variable DC power supply, used to regulate the CPU fan speed.

Our main test procedure is designed to determine the overall system power consumption at various states (measured using a Seasonic Power Angel). To stress CPUs we use either Prime95 (large FFTs setting) or CPUBurn K7 depending on which produces higher system power consumption. To stress the IGP, we use FurMark, an OpenGL benchmarking and stability testing utility. Power consumption during playback of high definition video is also recorded.

Cool'n'Quiet was enabled (unless otherwise noted). The following features/services were disabled during testing to prevent spikes in CPU/HDD usage that are typical of fresh Vista installations:

  • Windows Sidebar
  • Indexing
  • Superfetch
