Quick list of energy usage of video-game systems (using manufacturer provided ratings)
@neauoire Well to be fair most of those are handheld systems. I think the small jump in power consumption between the first gameboys (no backlight) and the SP (with backlight) is funny also.
@neauoire I just replaced the screen of my NGPC with a baklit one and I was amazed when the two batteries were depleted after 15 hours of "Card Fighter".
The PS5 and Xbox X Series will be terrible at power consumption.
@ZikZak it's two piece of power hungry proprietary tech the world does NOT need at the moment.
@grey very much appreciated my friends SP, though my adult sized hands turn into lumps of carpel tunnel holding one.
@neauoire Nice chart! I got a Switch Lite recently and I was checking the power usage. It's supposed to max at 7.25W with a demanding game and full brightness, less than 3W with a less demanding game and lower brightness. I think that's super impressive given what it can run and that it's a current gen console.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
