Although there are many articles and published papers on energy consumption related to computer equipment, it’s almost impossible to find detailed specifications of this equipment. Here, you will find both: actual measurements (not averages or estimates) and also the specifications of the devices, which can help with comparison and identification.
Please note: More devices are added monthly, so please make sure to keep tuning in. Parameters
List of Research Articles: – Desktop Towers or CPUs (Slim, Full, Gaming, OEM, Mini PC, iMac, etc.) – Laptops, Netbooks, Chromebooks, Surface Pro, Macbook, etc. – LCD and CRT monitors, TVs and other types of display – Networking Equipment: Switches, Routers, Firewalls, Access Points, Modems, etc. – Power Supplies: Measured by themselves – Other: IoT, External Hard Drives, Printers, Cable Boxes, Gaming Consoles, Phones, Cellphones charging, UPS battery Backups, etc.
Testing Procedures: The device was powered on and allowed operate normally. A power measurement was then taken. An average may be used if the energy consumption was not consistent.
