Group to gauge server power consumption

@ 2006/04/01
A GROUPof chip makers is ganging up to create a new metric that benchmarks server power consumption. According to an eWeek scoop, Intel, AMD and Sun were due to meet this week to talk about gauging the hot topic as electricity prices soar, power reliability comes into question and datacentre staff toil in temperatures not usually associated with the United Kingdom.

So let's hope the chip makers come up with something solid on measuring power consumption but with performance per watt becoming such a big deal, don’t wager all your weekend cash.
