Upcoming Power Efficiency Benchmark : Ecomark

Intel is working with Bapco on “Ecomark,” a Sysmark-based benchmark that will take into account sleep times of a processor and even indicate how the user has to spend to run a computer system (without monitor) based on a very specific processor. Preliminary numbers provided by Intel indicate that an entry-level desktop Core 2 Duo system may cost just under $ 14 per year, while the mobile T7600 version is estimated to cost less than $ 10. Current benchmarks do not take into account that faster processors finish their tasks earlier than slower ones and therefore save power during the time chips are still working. Ecomark will recognize such scenarios and most likely will provide benchmark data that is very different from today’s power-related benchmarks, such as Mobile Mark.
