it's interesting, but I don't think it's all that useful.
for instance, how many of you have cluster nodes that need >400W PS's?
as usual THG seems mainly focused on satisfying the gamer/overclocker
that he's got Da B35t.
one relevant and interesting factoid was that they claim the PS's
all operate at about 70% efficiency. it's a little hard to tell
how they measured that, but I think it's at peak load. it would
be nice to know whether efficiency is better at sane/normal loads.
I just received a pair of kill-a-watt's today, and am eager to
plug things into them. a PIII/833/i815 256M ram, 40G + 120G SATA
demo machine I have here was around 50W. but someone already
made off with the single kill-a-watt I brought in ;)
PF .74 on that machine, by the way. I was kind of surprised,
since it was a compaq deskpro. pretty old, though, that's probably why.
