Ivy Bridge preview with GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H (Intel Z77) and Core i7 3770K - Power and Temperature Tests

Power Draw Tests




Power draw is one of the more attractive offerings with the new Ivy Bridge platform and you can see that it's strong, especially in the idle department against the 2600k. Of course compared to the Sandy Bridge-E platform we're a good chunk lower.



Temperature Tests




On the temperature front we're finding the Ivy Bridge CPUs are running a little warmer. It's nothing too major and we're dealing with quite a bit less power draw. It will be interesting to see what goes on in terms of overclocking, an area we've been told Ivy Bridge performs extremely strong in.
