Obviously power consumption should go down thanks to Intel's cooler 45nm process. At idle (sitting at the desktop with no disk queue), the difference between our Conroe and Wolfdale systems is relatively small - a savings of only 3%:
Under load however (running our WME9 test) the total system power consumption gap increases to 12.6W:
Wolfdale decreases total system power consumption by around 10% compared to Conroe.
