I'm talking about 3W for the quad core Exynos(Exynos Octa) running at 1.2GHz, since you mentioned that frequency.
Actually, I did pixel counting in paint and got 2.6W at 1.2GHz(16800MIPS).
Anyways, the Clover Trail system I have does not have the sensors for the CPU but the Ivy Bridge Ultrabook does. Some interesting results here.
At 2.8GHz frequency:
-55200MIPS in Dhrystone
-14.2W max package power, 12W core power for a certain duration(my system has the CPU set at 15W), with 12.5W package power, 10.2W core power for remainder of the benchmark
At 800MHz LFM locked:
-5W package power, 2.8xW core power for a certain duration, with 4.5W package power and 2.4xW core power for the remainder of the time
(The GPU power use is insignificant at 2-10mW and the non-core functions vary little at 2-2.3W)
I also find it interesting how little it uses at 800MHz. 5W package power in Dhrystone probably means if its capped at that frequency, 7W SDP is realistic even under load(but SDP is for another topic). Also the little variation of non-core power(package power - core power - gpu power) means it doesn't really do much of power management and puts an absolute ceiling on how low they can go with TDP.
