which processor is less power consumptive
Posted on 2002-03-12
I need to buy a new computer, but I'm wondering which processor speed and type (P III or P IV) I must buy.
I need this computer for my personal use, and to be dial-up server for my friends. I have many web applications in this computer, and only one concurrent user can connected. This computer should be working for 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and in a high temprature, from 20C to 35C during the year.
I'm using Windows 98 Second edition, now I have P I 100 Mhz, doing this job without problems, but the only problem is that it is not satisfied for my personal use, but it is fine for the web server and high temprature.
My second question is that: how can I save the processor power (then reduce heat) while the system is idle. I tried to suspend the processor, but it tells me that it cann't be suspended because the dial-up server!
There is a third question: If I forget the power saving of the processor, does 100% usage of processor and 1% usage consumes the same power and emmits the same heat??
Thanks for reading my question, and sorry for the lengthy
