Understanding the Power-to-Performance Capabilities of Intel Processors

Understanding the Power-to-Performance Capabilities of Intel Processors White Paper

Size, weight, and power (SWaP) are highly critical constraints in the defense and aerospace industries. In particular, selecting a processing solution for an application requires the right mix of processor performance and power consumption.

There are three mainstream general-purpose processor architectures in use today, each with its own strengths and constraints: Intel® (x86), Power Architecture®, and Arm®. Of the three, Intel processors boast the highest performance and efficiency. However, there is a popular industry misconception that Intel processors draw more when compared to the power needs of Power Architecture and Arm processors.

This white paper will bust the myth that Intel processors always draw more power.
