    Calculate Power Consumption of CPU

    davidenko

      An increase in processor operating frequency not only increases system performance,
      but also increases the processor power dissipation. The relationship between
      frequency and power is generalized in the following equation: P = CV2F (where
      P = power, C = capacitance, V = voltage, F = frequency). From this equation, it is
      evident that power increases linearly with frequency and with the square of voltage.

       

      But where to find capacitance for AMD Cpu's?
