CES has always been home to the latest offerings from the smallest and biggest brands in the market. This was the prime location for AMD to launch their Fusion APU which will be the first in a long line of products that combine a CPU and GPU together, much like Intel’s successful Sandy Bridge platform that launched around the same time.

AMD were also joined by some of the biggest partners of theirs including the likes of Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and Sapphire who will be using the Fusion APU platform, joined with the Hudson M1 chipset to offer an all-in-one solution aimed at the budget market, leaving the options open for the likes of HTPC users.

If you remember the Fusion Mini-ITX preview we did last week, we showed some of the boards that we can expect to be released including the Asus E35M1-I Deluxe with its passive cooling solution, giving it a certain edge over the competitors

Thanks to our friends at AMD, we have been supplied with the E35M1-M Pro to see how it fairs in a variety of the latest gaming benchmarks, video rendering, and CPU intensive tests. With a low wattage design and packed full of features, how will this perform in real world tasks?

    who uses a 1200watt psu on a sub 50watt system?TRY it with a picopsu90, maybe the power consumption numbers will then be usefull.:@

    The system will only draw as much power as it needs, hence using that power supply with its dual 12v rails.Andy

    Almost all ATX power supplies drop well below 70% efficiency when operating at only 5% load.A system that draws, lets say 30W in idle mode would be only working at 2,5% load when using a 1200W PSU!Assuming 50% efficiency this system would draw 60W from your wall socket.

    The results we have in the review are the figures at the wall.

    Yes, and like bigspud said they are rather useless with such a big PSU.

    You say about the board pulling 60w from the wall, even at load, the system only pulled 43.3w.

  • MTA99

    Just tested a Fusion motherboard for an upcoming review using a 200w Shuttle PSU. The draw *at the wall* on load? 43w

    I have this MB in a system with 2gb DDR3 1066, 2.5" 7200rpm hdd, slim ODD and case fan. All powered by a solid state 200W PSU and 150W AC/DC brick.Idle power usage is 18W to 20WLoad is 30WYour ATX PSU is using power to output power. That's why your usage numbers were high.

    Take a look at MTA99's response. Similar usage.I was also using a lot higher specced memory to what you are using and a different type of drive which all caters in certain factors.It is also worth noting that even with the system off, the unit will still draw around 2watts from the wall.Andy
