If AMD had Intel's fab resources, market share, and influence, they might. Anyway you slice it, that's a David & Goliath situation, and likely always will be. But I digress. This thread is about energy efficiency; for my part, I pulled two rotational drives out of my system and put in a boot SSD. My vidcard, admittedly low end, is passively cooled. This discussion interests me because I am readying a GPU upgrade, and until now, never consider power consumption beyond the PSU. Oh, and I am at the 2.5 yr mark since my last build, which squares with the chart.
