Re: fitlet2 performance

I'm curious about the difference between the J3455 and the E3950. The J3455 has ~10% higher geekbench with a ~20% lower TDP and even costs less. What would be the advantage of choosing the Atom E3950 over the Celeron J3455? Does it have lower idle power consumption? Better performance in another are...

Re: CMOS Battery

Hi mbirger,

As I mentioned in my first post, I'd be comfortable doing the soldering. Can you tell me where to purchase the battery with the appropriate soldering fins?

Thank you,

CMOS Battery

Hello, We've got a small fleet of IPC Pros and we're starting to see some of the CMOS batteries fail. I opened one of them up to find that it doesn't appear to be as simple as swapping in a new battery since the rechargeable Li-Ion is soldered to the board. I don't mind a little soldering, but I hav...

Re: Fitlet iA10 Current and Power Levels

I think you may be on to something with CPU scaling at idle. Watching the CPU frequency (as a % of maximum), it rarely falls below 80 or 90% with no activity. Maybe Linux is more aggressively scaling like you suggest. However, loading my CPU fully fuels a power consumption jump just above that of th...

Re: Reducing Power Consumption

So I did some quick testing. With 100% CPU usage I get the following power consumption: 4 cores = 10.7 Watts 3 cores = 9.5 Watts 2 cores = 8.4 Watts With a sustained load of about 20% CPU usage: 4 cores = 8.7 Watts 3 cores = 8.7 Watts 2 cores = 8.7 Watts So for a typical use case, unloading cores do...

fitlet Heatsink

Just wanted to document my results with the fitlet Heatsink Add-on. I've got a fitlet iA10. Under my test operation (roughly 20%CPU load), the standard heatsink keeps the fitlet at about 65 deg C. Running the same operations with the add-on heatsink, mounted with thermal paste, the fitlet sits aroun...

Re: Reducing Power Consumption

Hassellbear, thanks for the comment. Found an older post of yours and posted some results and questions there.

Arwen, thanks. I'll investigate disabling a core or two to see how that affects power consumption.

Re: Fitlet iA10 Current and Power Levels

Hi hassellbear, Thanks for your response in my other thread. Your measurements are great. I am however stumped by the low power consumption you get at full CPU load. Your measurements at full CPU load show: 4.5W TDP ==> 6.5 Watts Consumed 10W TDP ==> 8.7 Watts Consumed My numbers are quite different...

Reducing Power Consumption

Hello, I'm trying to reduce power consumption of a fitlet-iA10. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and with the computer at idle it is consuming 5.5 Watts (after the power supply). This is a clean install of Windows. Nothing is connected to the fitlet; no display, no keyboard, no mouse, no USB devices, et...

Re: Mintbox2 Wake On Timer

Thank you mbirger for your response. Your product page is a bit misleading. Everything else in the list I copied from your product page are typical BIOS features. Why would a windows feature be included in that list? Using Windows to wake the PC is only possible from a sleep or hibernate state, not ...
