AMD AM1 vs. Intel Bay Trail-D review: cheap desktop platforms

Very energy efficient processor and motherboard combinations for less than $125 / £75 / € 90


Power consumption: Cinebench 11.5 (Max)

You can see the maximum power consumption during the Cinebench 11.5 benchmark in the chart below. Note that this chart shows the power consumption of the complete test systems (including memory, SSD, etc.).

Both platforms are significantly more energy efficient than the higher-end platforms. Intel proves to be slightly more efficient: the Celeron J1900's power consumption does not exceed 21.1 watt, whereas the AMD Athlon 5350 reaches a maximum of 26.3 watt. The difference is much smaller than one would expect based on the difference in TDP (10W vs. 25W).
