AMD 880G Mobo Roundup - New Mainstream Integrated Graphics

By Vincent Chang - 27 May 2010

Temperature & Power Consumption

Temperature

Both the Northbridge and Southbridge heatsinks were passively cooled on these boards and from the temperatures we recorded below, it's clear that passive cooling is more than sufficient, even if the temperatures recorded at load were a bit on the warm side. The lack of elaborate passive heatsinks match the kind of temperatures recorded on this chipset, which is perfectly fine and there's nothing to be concerned about.

 

Power Consumption

Power consumption was also relatively low, but that's not surprising since we're talking about boards with integrated graphics, some of which are microATX in size. The older AMD 785G however did have higher power consumption at peak, so it looks like the newer boards are more efficient.
