Pentium D 830 consumes 166 watts

A Chinese site measured power consumption of 14 CPUs to determine which one is most suitable for frying eggs for breakfast. The results showed Pentium D 830 as the champion spewing 166.14 watts of thermal energy with both cores fully loaded. Note the measurement was for CPU power only, it didn't include power consumption of other parts, such as chipsets.

AMD's TDP is measured at maximum power the CPU will draw under full load, Intel CPU's TDP is "typical", and "typical" is about 70% for them, if not less.
