MSI and ECS 785G tested - 7 Power-Consumption

Review: Upgraded 780G



While we did believe we will see some new lows on idle-power consumption, MSI has set a new milestone. With about 13W less compared to their old DKA790GX board and also beat Elitegroup by about 11W, this is the first board to manage an idle power of under 50W with the most power-hungry AMD CPU.

Under load of course the AMD CPU is not really great. Please notice we only tested the first three boards with IGP, while all other benches include a HD 4850 graphics-card. So even with a graphics card installed which will draw about 50W in idle, the efficiency on Intel CPUs is unmatched.
