The problem with IVY is that it as relatively poor over clocker, not that its bad at stock speeds.
That is a 33% increase in speed(from 3.5 GHz), for a 100% increase in current drawn.
Hrm......my CPU pulls just 50 W at stock...I guess you are very much right. However, at the same time, I'm using just under 1.2 V for that 4.6 GHz, when most are using jsut under 1.3 V that I have seen.
That's when comparing to SB, which ran 4.6 GHz @ 125 W, and increase of ~50% from stock(which was ~ 80 W), for the same roughly 33% increase in clocks...
