This is true but the high end core 2 quad extremes arent far behind and the i7s are just as bad with 130w. what you have to remember here thos is that AMD always have their tweaks, much like intel introduced the speed step amd Overdrive utility can have the same effect couple that with Asus EPU engine and you can have a very powerful processor but only pulling the juice when it needs it.
