We test power consumption at the socket with a calibrated meter under the following conditions.
1: when idle
2: under Cinebench load
3: : running Tomb Raider at Ultra HD 4K with ‘ultimate’ image quality settings.
The monitor is not included in the power draw – just the demand via the system power supply.
When idle, the Cyberpower Achilles Pro only consumes 65 watts of power. This rises to 113 watts when the processor is loaded with Cinebench. When the system is under heavy demand in Tomb Raider, the power consumption peaks at 320 watts.
