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.

@julienxx more detailed specs? does the amd laptop have one of those apu's with radeon graphics?

@julienxx maybe try the proprietary amd gpu drivers (i know, sucks :/), sometimes they can have better power management.
