Finally, we got all these results with substantially decreased power consumption, which for the processor tests was again around 2 times lower (or half of what the FX system consumes) and a bit less than 2 times for gaming. Which might not be that surprising given that we have about 4 generations of technological process improvements between the 2 systems (from 32/28 nm through 22/20, 16/14 and finally now on 7 nm). The only part where the new system lags behind the old one is the operating temperatures. Part of it is because of the fact that the CPU cooler in the FX system is beefier and more importantly – the new chips are substantially smaller than the old ones, which means the heat density is way higher and it is a lot more difficult to remove it.
