Raspberry Pi power consumption

For everyone wondering what his raspberry pi might be consuming read this. You’ll be happy to find out mine only measured 1,020W during boot with a raspbmc image on the sdcard. This is whit ethernet and hdmi connected, a real world usage example.

For comparing this is what my 24/7 intel atom based server takes with an SSD, no optical drive, no peripherals. I also added some other systems I had running here.

CPU MOBO PSU OS Consumption
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3200+ AsRock ATX 400W Ubuntu Desktop 80W
Intel Atom D525 Intel D525MW ATX 400W Ubuntu Desktop 40W
Intel Atom D525 Intel D525MW ITX 60W Ubuntu Desktop 19W
Intel Atom D525 Intel D525MW ITX 60W Ubuntu Server 16.5W


If someone is interested in more specific read outs please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
