Thermal Design Power (TDP) represents the average power, in watts, the processor dissipates when operating at Base Frequency with all cores active under an Intel-defined, high-complexity workload.
I am still confused about TDP for CPU, screen and other so I was wondering if somebody more knowledgeable could explain it very slowly.
The idea behind these questions is that people could CALCULATE how much battery life they can expect from V based on what they will be using V for.
Rather then on meaningless banchmarks like: “You can watch video for 13.5 hours”.
- Lets talk CPU first. Lets focus on M3 for simplicity (and because it seams to be the most popular).
What does 4.5 Whr exactly means?
What does “We have increased TDP to 7Whr” exactly means?.
Are these TDP when CPU is working in Turbo Boost?
Or when it is working in normal mode? If so what is Turbo Boost TDP?
What is the lowes frequency of M3 and what is TDP then?
What is frequency/TDP when I am watching offline word document or web page?
And now about the screen.
What are TDPs for specific brightness/nits?
So if I know that in my room I can use it with 150 nits I could calculated screen TDP.
What is TDP of other components?
So if I know that I will be reading word documents offline I could calculate battery life.
