is TDP is the power consumption of a cpu

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i want to know whether TDP of a cpu is the power consumption of a cpu eg. i5-2500k has 95TDP means it will consume 95 watts at max loads, or it is something else

The TDP is the maximum amount of power the cooling system in a computer is required to dissipate

TDP is not the maximum power the CPU may generate - there may be periods of time when the CPU dissipates more power than designed, in which case either the CPU temperature will rise closer to the maximum, or special CPU circuitry will activate and add idle cycles or reduce CPU frequency with the intent of reducing the amount of generated power.
TDP is usually 20% - 30% lower than the CPU maximum power dissipation.

It's quite obvious in the name, Thermal Design Power.
