AMD Athlon X4-845 Carrizo Processor Review

Power Consumption and Temperatures

Power Consumption

In terms of efficiency, the AMD X4-845 is relatively good and consumes just under 160 watts under extreme load. This isn’t a major improvement though compared to the A10-7850K and it’s well off the G3220.


Testing thermals on AMD processors can be a tricky task because popular software like HWMonitor and CoreTemp often misread the actual running temperatures. In my experience, HWInfo is much more reliable and we can use a calculation to find out the thermal load with a degree of confidence. The AMD X4-845 runs cooler than the A10-7850K under load and the idle temperature is very low. The overclock hardly impacts on the load temperature but it increases the idle output by a noticeable amount.
