arrow_back If the processor is 15w and 35w, then they will heat the laptop at the same load will be the same?

There is a laptop where the processor eats 15 watts and it is quiet in the trailer, and does not warm up without serious loads.
There is a similar version, only pro, there is on i3, and i5 which has 35 watt consumption and 2 times more cores.

Will it be twice as hot by default due to the fact that it consumes 35w?
Or is it the maximum consumption and at the same load it will consume the same watts as an i3, and will not warm up the laptop?

That's not what you're thinking about. The W here does not measure energy consumption, but heat production.
And yes, it will warm up more. Check on the internet to see what the maximum possible CPU can fit into your model with its cooling system.
If the system is dead on its own and has been in combat for 10 years, its tired tubes may not be able to handle it. You'll have both trolling and brownouts.


hint000 , Thank you for your comment. That's interesting.
In W here is measured not by energy consumption, but by heat production.
If we talk only about the processor, almost all of the energy consumed is released as heat. If we talk about the computer as a whole, more than 99% as heat, the rest in the form of electromagnetic radiation, in the form of air flow and in the form of fan noise, and some very small amount - for wear and tear of bearings in the fans. In short, technically you are right, but in practice you can not detect the difference, if you compare the consumption with heat generation.
And in general, the selected CPU is not suitable for replacement

The concept of "equal load" exists in the world of spherical horses in a vacuum. we have a "task". we have software that will perform it. the logic of software is to use the resources allocated to it to perform the task. while one CPU will fart performing it within one heat package ... the second one will fire up to the state of a superstar and quietly (when finished) will go back to the background power consumption mode.
