Power Consumption

We loved that the Asrock Core 100HT-BD consumed very little power, and although the Asrock Vision 3D packs much more muscle, it comes at the cost of increased power usage (21%) under load.

Nonetheless, compared to our AMD Phenom II X2 560 machine, the Vision 3D was 48% more efficient and we found it to be faster in many tests. At the end of the day, a full load consumption level of just 64 watts is very impressive.
