iMac power consumption for Folding @ Home?Locked
Hi, I have an iMac 27″ 2019 that I’m wanting to use for Folding at Home. I was just wondering what the power usage would be like. It’s the base 3Ghz 6 Core i5 with the Radeon Pro 570X and 16GB of Ram, Mactracker says the maximum Power Usage for this iMac is 270W with the CPU at 100%.
I presume this 270W is for the fully upgraded 8 Core i9 model with the VEGA 48 so the base model should be less? I’m wanting to run it on low so it’s as efficient as possible. I have done a test run and CPU usage is averaging 45%.
