My AMD laptop with 4 cores uses like 9-10W idle where my work dual core i7 only uses 5W. I wonder if that’s expected (more physical cores more power drainage)? Or is it a config issue (using tlp)?
@julienxx have you tried powertop? it should show you what power saving options you might have missed.
@foura yes, everything looks enabled
@julienxx more detailed specs? does the amd laptop have one of those apu's with radeon graphics?
@foura indeed it’s a T495 (Radeon) vs a X1C6 (Intel)
@julienxx maybe try the proprietary amd gpu drivers (i know, sucks :/), sometimes they can have better power management.
