How does thermal design power apply to multi-core processors? Intel's QX6800 has a TDP of 130W, according to Intel's website. That processor is quad-core; so does that mean that the combined TDP of all the cores is 130W, or does each core have a TDP of 130W? AMD's Athlon 64 FX-74 has a TDP of 125W, according to the AMD website. So do both cores combined have a TDP of 125W, or each core? Also, is the TDP the same as the wattage used by the processor? Thanks in advance.
