Power Consumption To emulate real-world usage scenarios, we record system-wide mains power draw when idle, when encoding video via HandBrake and while playing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Notes

We have five CPUs tested from the ground-up on Windows 10 using the latest available drivers. The chips represent the very best of Broadwell and Haswell, as well as AMD's A10 series of APU.
