Wine and Watts - Varjagy - 2008-05-30

This is more of a technical note I guess.


For the past 9 moths, I've been monitoring how much wattage my computer has used. I have logged average, min and max. Allways on the same system.


When it comes to wine, it used to (when I started the logging) make sure the computer needed a lot of power. It used to need about 350W (peaked on 381W) when I ran games and other heavy applications.


These days, when I run the same applications, it averages out on about 180W, a lot less than what it used to be.


I'm glad to see the progress wine has done.
