The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 23c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this. Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by running Furmark and Cinebench together.
We had no way of measuring the temperatures of the AMD HD6650 without disassembling the Power Media Dock, and we decided against it. The Core i7 processor can get fairly toasty, peaking at 85C under load, dropping to around 53c when idle.
