Where did u get that?? I thought they were just focussing on finishing the FX-57. Oh well, nice results. Is that on stock heatsink and everything. Howcome voltage went down while clock went up? Looks good as of now.

My DFI wonders the same thing. Maybe it's the dynamic clocking that accounts for the difference in voltages?

You sure about the 25w TDP. The D in the beginning of the OPN denotes 35w.

http://www.amdboard.com/low-power_mobile_roadmap.html

Looks like the Turion line will be 25-35w, but the mobile Semprons will be the only ones in 25w territory. Lancaster is rated at 35w.

Looks sweet. Can't wait for Lancaster. :)

I've never seen TDP encoded in an AMD OPN before. Do you have a link?

(Fab51 is wrong to split the first 3 letter code into 2 letters + 1 "power letter", as it clearly DOESN'T WORK with many example A64's and Opterons!)

So the new code of "TMD" must be taken as a whole. We don't know the official TDP until it is announced. (But they've already said their will be 25W and 35W parts, and we already *have* the 35W line (current 90nm LP Mobile A64).)

03-06-2005, 11:23 AM
Neither had I in any AMD spec sheets, but according to this AM is the family (a.k.a. Athlon64 mobile in the current mobiles) and the letter after it is the power design. A = 81.5w for DTRs, N = 62w for transportables, and D = 35w for low-power. Looks like mobiles fall under the Turion family now (TM), but the next number should still note TDP.

I just edited my post above.

Fab51 is wrong, IMO. The existing parts out there do not support the interpretation of the 3rd letter as power.

(Winchester has the same ADA code as Newcastle, for instance, with different TDP.)

You take the first 3 letters together as the "family" of part, and there may be different TDPs within it. That's what the data to date indicate.

03-06-2005, 01:16 PM
Good point, I can't say I really have an arguement to that. All the other info seems to fit, though, so I really have no reason to believe they're wrong.

But notice the roadmap posted in my first post also puts the Lancasters at 35w and Semprons at 25w. Plus they appear to operate at the same voltage (K), so I don't see how TDP could be any lower unless there have been major tweaks with rev E0 to reduce heat output (look how much of a difference it made from C0 to CG, so it's possible).

Not like it really matters, though; until the product comes out, this is all speculation. :)

Look how they mispelled our sites name. "OUR FRIENDS at Extreme Systems managed to get a picture and some basic test of AMD's upcoming Centrino killer."

Must not be very good friends if they can't even manage to spell the sites name correctly lol.


So basically this is an Oakville with 1MB L2 and runs with lower volts.

frostedflakes
03-06-2005, 01:47 PM
Default voltage is still the same as Oakville, but looks like because of tweaks in revision E0 it is able to run at very low voltages, and because of this should probably OC well. :)

The only solid date I have heard is 4/18, but who knows if it's true or not.

Not all motherboards support mobiles. I've heard of people having good luck with the DFI, Chaintech VNF3-250, and MSI K8N Neo, but not really much about other S754 boards.

That's a 35 W model according to this:
http://www.x86-secret.com/index.php?option=newsd&nid=848 >> T64 ML 30 (going FX style, no more confusing P-rating, just strange codes...)

About the three letters, I think it just shows if it's desktop/DTR/low power, no TDP.

frostedflakes
03-06-2005, 06:36 PM
Should be 1.35v for the 35w chips. Don't know about 25w.

Mats, interesting link. Looks like this is 35w, but not for the reason I originally thought.

What I find interesting is they'll have 25w and 35w versions all the way up to 2.2GHz (3400+, I'd assume). The 2.4GHz chip will only come in 35w though. I also didn't know there would be 512kb versions.

jjcom
03-06-2005, 07:16 PM
I don't think so. 1.35v was for 35W on the AXP-Ms. So I would guess 1.3 or less for these chips.

:lol:


im pretty sure its 1.3v, a 3500+ winchester consumes around 36W of power under load, may load probably 40W or 45W ,then 1.3v should be just about right for 35W absolute max heat production/power consumption

All I know is current Oakvilles have the OPN AMDxx00BKX4LB, and this new chip is TMDML30BKX5LD. According to Fab51 and all the forums I've visited K is supposed to denote 1.35v.

Before 90nm there were 35w low-power Newcastles. They had a default Vcore of 1.2v I believe.

At the same voltage 90nm runs cooler than 130nm though, which is the reason why they don't have to lower it to 1.2v to maintain the same 35w rating.

Yes, there are other ways of lowering power besides voltage. Different transistors, better strained silicon (e.g. DSL) for lower leakage, etc.

There should be 1.6GHz (2800+) and 1.8GHz (3000+) 25W parts, along with a 35W 2GHz (3200+) at launch.


Amdboard didn't copy the slide right! See here:

Despite the "3rd letter encodes power" garbage, it appears the pictured part was a 35W part, not a 25W part.

But we are due to get 25W 1.8GHz and 35W 2.0GHz in Q1! Rev E, SSE3, 754!

x86-secret has the scoop:

http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.x86-secret.com%2F%3Foption%3Dnewsd%26nid%3D848&lp=fr_en

At a few days of the official advertisement of the AMD Turion 64 (probably in CeBIT), we could get complete information to us on this new processor. Intended to compete with Pentium M in the field of the portable PC, Turion 64 is in fact only one version "Low Voltage", consuming less, of Athlon 64. Thanks to the process 90nm, AMD can thus lower the supply voltage of its Athlons and offer of CPUs Mobile not exceeding 35 Watts, or 25 Watts according to versions'. Equipped with the revision E of the core K8 (having the SSE3), Turion 64 will be equipped with 1 Mo of L2 mask and the support of the DDR400 on only one channel. Let us see the roadmaps and the frequencies of launchings:


http://www.x86-secret.com/pics/news/q105/table.png

First thing, AMD gives up here P-rating of the type "3200+", but adopts a new notation. This time, one speaks about "Turion 64 ML-30" or "Turion 64 MT-28". Ml indicating a CPU consuming 35 Watts maximum and MT, 25 Watts. The following figure being a kind of P-rating, based on the frequency and the size of the mask. Turion 64 MT-30 will function, for example, to 1.6 GHz and will be equipped with 1 MB of L2 mask. This lucky find marketing probably will muddle still a little more the purchasers, who had already extremely to make with the Processor number INTEL and P-rating of AMD. Limited to 2 GHz for the version 35 Watts and 1.8 GHz for the version 25 Watts with launching, Turion 64 should gain 200 MHz per quarter until A the end of the year.

thx for the infos! :)

the naming of the cpus is kinda lame imo, trying to make them look really powerfull, mt-37 is obviously supposed to look close to a 3700+ wich is a joke with 2ghz 1mb and only single channel memory :/

depsite the naming of those cpus they look very very promising though, this is a great upgrade option to 754 users extending the life of that plattform for several years! :banana:

they wont become the overclockers choice as the mobile barton and mobile clawhammer chips though i guess... current chips can already to 2ghz with 1v, i wonder why amd i going for 1.2-1.35v :confused:

terrace215
03-06-2005, 09:59 PM
I'm not sure they are supposed to look like anything, really.

They need some scheme that is reasonably short, but allows for two different power ratings, yet indicates the direction of increasing performance.

And most people will be comparing them against Dothans. In that sense, it is actually interesting that the model schemes no longer bear any resemblence to one another.

I think there is a little cheat! First of all, please, look at the OPN number. It is TMDML30BKX5LD, but sys112 said that was AMD Turion 64 2800+ processor operated at 1.6GHz. I think we have the real AMD Turion 64 ML 3000+ 1.80GHz processor. According to OPN number (that is real) the processor has a default core voltage of 1.350V (letter K). Now take a look at cpuz screens. What do we see? We see that the processor operates at 1.6GHz with 1.400V core voltage. I think this is too high for the mobile 0.09 u 1.60GHz processor.

maybe because it was in a desktop board with better cooling. lower temps -> higher oc at the same vcore or lower vcore for the same oc
and this might be a good chip, maybe the average turion cpus only run that clockspeed with a higher vcore with laptop heatsink... and dont forget that they always leave some headroom in clockspeeds as well to make its always stable.

and last but not least i really think that amd managed to get more out of their chips then they expected! they seem to run much better with lower volts than amd probably thought they would when they came up with the specs of the turion plattform. :)

No, the ML-30 is the 1.6GHz 1MB L2 35W part.

The MT-30 is the 1.6GHz 1MB L2 25W part.

He just didn't know the new official name, and went with the old PR rating for a 1MB 1.6GHz part, which was 2800+.

42s at 2ghz for an a64 (which is what the turion is loosely based around, i assume) isn't all that good. Is it?

Still 2 ghz on 1v is bloody impressive. That must run very cold indeed. How high has it been clocked with higher voltage?

and last but not least i really think that amd managed to get more out of their chips then they expected! they seem to run much better with lower volts than amd probably thought they would when they came up with the specs of the turion plattform. :)

Saaya , ull be surprised how many winchesters are stable while undervolting. I myself have owned two winchesters , a 3000+ and a 3500+ , both were stable at 1.158 V and 1.2 V respectively . By stable I mean any given benchmark , 3d or prime95 or S&M or stresscpu. They were completely stable at stock speeds.
I undervolt my processor as a part of my burn-in process , thanx to Sentinel who has posted in this very thread and whose burn in guide is posted over at OC Forums. I have had many pms requesting me to make a burn in guide and I am currently working on one. I hope Sentinel doesnt mind , its basically his concept which has worked great for me till now . :toast:

But the thing is that at the same voltage 90nm runs cooler. So the voltage won't need to be lower than the Newcastles to have the same 35w rating. According to the OPN, it's 1.35v. I'm not sure about the voltage on the 25w chips yet.

Also, I contacted an online store about these Turions, and one of the sales staff mentioned they have one MT-30 in stock. My reaction was: :eek:

I'm not sure if it's a sample or what. If he is allowed to resell it, though, I'll be sure to buy it. At the least I'm going to have him send me the OPN so we can find out what voltage these 25w chips are rated for.

2 Gigs on 1V is impressive and looks like centrino killer indeed, but i t doesn't means that Lancaster would clock high, even with higher voltages.
It was preety often to see Winnies that made 2,7G on 1,45 but woudnt ever go 2,9 even on 1,7V.
But SS may change that... i think
Turion is tremendous to show the 754 power !!! :banana:

The DFI supports all current mobiles. If the existing BIOS versions don't support Turion, I'm sure they'll release one that does.

Although none of the motherboard manufacturers want to admit it publicly, I think many quite a few of the most popular have included microcode support for Athlon64 mobiles. I think the Chaintech VNF3-250 and MSI K8N Neo are also compatible with low-power mobiles.

yeah, ive seen several chips at 2ghz+ with 1v stable, i didnt know that current chips already clock that sweet with low vcores! but those were all really good chips, if this is average for a turion it will revive the 754 market in no time! :D

and about availability... i think it will be the same as with current mobile chips, they are not everywhere, but you can buy them for a decent price in big shops :) might just take some time before they are in stock :)

and i hope amd can cope with the huge demand so prices dont shoot up :D

and about bios support, dfi will definately support them, and if they do all the bios modders will see how they changed the bios to work with a turion and can hopefully apply the same changes and transfair the code to the bios files of other 754 boards :)

with athlon 64s, the performance difference between single-channel and dual-channel is somewhere around 5%-10% in most things, though with specific benchmarks i can't say for certain.

perkam
03-08-2005, 12:41 PM
Yes

It would be a direct competitor to the dothans so dont expect it to be cheap ;) Expected prices should be something like:

~$200 for Turion64 2800+
~$250 for Turion64 3000+
~$300 for Turion64 3200+

Remember, the only other procs in the next few months that will have SSE3 and 1mb cache will be the 4200+ :eek: so cheap is out of the question :up:

EDIT: Prices revised cos 3700+ costs $340 (which is amazing) :) Interestingly enough INtel's dothans cant do double channel either, afaik, so that will not be a reason for a lower price, neither will be the fact that most other newer procs on 754 will be value semprons.

And the 745 costs more than the 3800+ in addition to the fact that mobos for these procs are same cost as the DFI LP SLI-DR ($230) and dont even have dual-channel.

That you only need to do with really expensive cpus and those ones you dont care about the steppings for like xeons, ppl here like to search for their own procs just so that they can get better steppings, get better prices or get a combo or something. It also leaves the commitment part out of it so you can make your decision on your own time.

Unless u dont mind a score of 40+ even with 3ghz Turion, yes dual channel cripples Turion for desktop implementation but low power requirement means a lot more OCing coming in the way of notebooks ocers.

Nice. :)

What boards you going to try them in? If they work, I'd very very interested in knowing how the 1.8GHz 25w overclocks (this is the 1mb L2 version, and not 512kb?), as this is what I would probably buy.

Mats
03-15-2005, 07:26 PM
also, what is the rated voltage for the 25w part?
Until we know I'm guessing 1.2 V (= "Q" in OPN).
The 35 W ML uses 1.35 V and goes up to 2.4 GHz.
The 25 W MT uses 1.?? V and goes up to 2.2 GHz.
I checked CPUPower (http://www.silentpcreview.com/Web_Links+index-req-visit-lid-137.html) (must use comma for decimals): (35 : 1,35 : 2400 @ 1,2 : 2200) = 25.3 W

03-15-2005, 09:36 PM
i was thinking a 1.15v part, but that seems way too low for a stock voltage at 2.2ghz

Since Monarch is a system builder, they should have no problems getting them he said. So hopefully by mid april they will have some Turries!

amd told me theres a difference, there are different transistors you can chose when building a cpu, some consume more power and switch faster, some consume less power and switch slower, just an easy example.

amd told me that the turion uses a different set of transistors than the regular a64s in 90nm and uses around 30% less power in some situations than a desktop a64 with the same vcore and clockspeed.

i dont know if this i true though, or if its just marketing :D

Does anyone have OC results yet (More than 2Ghz)? The latest article from anandtech:

Much as we suspected, all of the power optimizations that went "into" Turion 64 are all transistor level optimizations. Basically selecting transistors that provide better thermal and power characteristics at the expense of lower switching frequencies. Given that the Turion 64 runs at multiple speed grades lower than the fastest desktop Athlon 64s, this tradeoff makes sense, but it also means that Turion 64 is no Pentium M killer.

Not every CPU got a four letter code (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=56248):

In the MPM the first M means that the assembly lots have been combined and not made on one specific day thats all. The second M means that the fabrication cores came from different batches too. The lack of a W at the end means that wafer lots used in the process could be mixed. Nothing to do with "speed re-binning". The P is for the assembly plant of Penang.
The CBBHD or CBBID fabrication stepping is way more important.

Some new Turion-related info:

DFI recently released the 4/8 BIOS for NF3 250Gb motherboards. One of the most interesting features is revision E0 support. Hopefully Turion will be able to install in these boards without much or any trouble.

As far as availability goes, memoryexpousa.com claims they are working on getting them. The impression myself and others got from talking with them is that it's not a matter of if, but when. I'd hope another couple weeks to a month and they should be available. Not sure what models they plan to carry; hopefully all of them.

As the pic above points out, all the 25w models will begin with TMS. The 35w models are TMD. Voltage appears to be 1.2v ("Q") for the 25w models.

From what I gather, though, these are just recommended prices that are set by AMD. In the end, I think it all comes down to what the store selling the product decides to charge. But expect them to be around those figures.

The only two heatsinks I can think of that work with mobiles out-of-the-box are the Thermalright SLK-948U and Alpha PAL8150. You can make almost any other heatsink work with minor modifications.

I really hope it's because that P-rating is just outdated and confusing, otherwise we can all go and buy a cheap Oakville, or a Sempron...

tristancarton
04-11-2005, 11:53 PM
ozzi, marketing. pure marketing. the main marketing push against amd mobile chips is their power consumption. pentium-m chips consume amazingly low amounts of power.(and are still relatively fast) if amd comes out with new tech saying "we have special amazing low power silicon" it will look good.

the above and one more thing. from what i have heard many 90nm a64 s939 cpus can 1.6-2 ghz speeds at low voltages already. why mess with a process if the current process can hit these consumption limits.

in any case we should know soon. (at the latest hopefully a few weeks) btw the response above is pure speculation on my half.

ozzimark
04-12-2005, 12:08 AM
i see. i was looking at it from an enthusiast standpoint, so that makes thing a bit different..

however if it's a normal revE chip, it's thermally binned.. quite heavily. seeing as the TDP for the normal revE chips appears to be 67w at 1.4v.. dropping that to 1.35 (stock voltage of 35w model) only brings down the wattage to 62.3w
the rest of it has to come from either the fact that it's slower, or the cores themselves are that good that it puts out that little heat.. both of which may be able to amount to almost 30w, but it's kinda iffy.


that's just my view on it though, which is why i do believe that turion is made a bit different than the rest of the revE chips.
also note that there are 1mb and 512kb chips. i would suppose that they're all make with 1mb, but the ones with a defect in the cache get turned into the 512kb parts, effectively improving yeilds and making a seperate line more justifiable

frostedflakes
04-12-2005, 04:21 AM
Not to mention the statement might discourage some enthusiasts from purchasing Turion for desktop boards. And I think we are all aware of AMD's stance on mobiles. They plain do not want them to be used in anything other than laptops.

Also, the 67w TDP number is the thermal envelope, and includes all current and future processors. This means 3800+ and beyond. The 3800+ is 2.4GHz, and future chips may go as high as 2.8GHz or 3.0GHz for all we know. This is why TDP is so high. It's a loose number to cover an entire line.

On the other hand, Turion has a defined thermal limit. We already know the max clock rate, 2.4GHz.

Mats
04-12-2005, 04:27 AM
I wouldn't call it pure marketing, since it runs slower AFAIK (someone tell me if I'm wrong...). I thought they meant lower power and performance at the same speed, but that sounds like real BS, and really stupid to use in a mobile CPU. I mean come on, it's like starting a new MHz war just to get the attention in the market where that's the least important. You're right guys, let's wait and see, as usual...
Now we got FX, ML and MT. I guess the regular desktop chips will follow when they switch to socket M2.

Mats, that's the impression I got also. That they were using transistors which switched slower (performed worse than "normal" transistors), but had better thermal characteristiscs (ran cooler). Like I said, I don't know if I believe it. It just doesn't make any sense that AMD would start manufacturing a completely different CPU when current Venice/San Diego can easily be undervolted and rebadged as mobiles.

ozzimark
04-12-2005, 04:36 PM
i was wondering the same thing mats. i was one of the few who was lucky enough to contact him before it was too late :toast:

fr0stedflakes: what you say does make a lot of sense. though various chips put out verying amounts of heat at the same speed. i'm not sure how much, but i think enough that some of the faster running chips are thermally binned to slower speeds to make the TDP.

also, not trying to disagree with you, just consider this:
fastest 130nm chip at 89w is 2.4ghz. at 2.6, it got bumped to 104w. from that, i deduce that the 89w figure is meant for the 2.4ghz parts
then consider the 3400+ mobile: 1.4v, 2.2ghz and 62w.
bumping a 2.4ghz a64 to 2.2 and 1.4v would drop the power to 71w, not the 62w that the mobile rated for... somewhere amd is either getting cores that really do put out a bunch less heat, or there is some room left in the TDP figure, and it was needlessly raised for the fx-55.

but then again, it is known that the fx-55 has strained silicon, while the normal a64's don't. i don't know what happens to the cores that don't do 2.6ghz, but i won't go into that part of my theory for now.
but, if what the cto said about lower power transistors is true, then it would make sense that the same is true for the fx-55, thus it has higher power, faster transitors in it to allow for better yeilds at 2.6ghz. this would also explain the larger increase than expected in TDP when going from 2.4ghz to 2.6ghz ;)

again, both are just my wildly speculative theories, take with a grain of salt :toast:

does make sense tho, if AMD has slightly different process changes made for different A64s.

A 3200+ 35W Lancaster with 1x512 BH5 in a HTPC sounds REALLY nice to me. :)

Could be. But I believe the reason for higher TDP with the FX-55 was the use of strained silicon, not faster transistors. Note that Venice, which employ DSL (basically strained silicon, but under a different name), run slightly hotter than Winchester. Same # of transistors, though, and same type I'd assume. For whatever reason, strained silicon/DSL increases thermal output.

that's quite possible too, though i was under the impression that SS was supposed to reduce leakage some, thus lowering power consumption and heat. i might be getting my facts mixed up though

however, you better not be basing that hotter statement off of the one review that compared power consumption and temps :toast:

edit: this is getting waaayy o/t sorry :slap:

What else are we going to talk about until Turion is available. :p

I guess I should probably wait until more reviews are out. I've only found one that compares Winchester to Venice at the same clock speed and voltage with the same cooling. Something still could've been messing up the results. The difference was pretty significant, though. About 2*C I think. It was the 3200+ Venice review at Xbit-labs.

2ºC (alt-167 for º ;)) isn't really much of a difference.. i've seen two different mounts with the same heatsink on the same cpu change more than 2º

though, assuming that it was the same both times, it appears that the venice that they had for testing is warmer than the winchester. i'd like to see comparisions between other venice and winchesters though, because if my thought on how no 2 cpu is the same in terms of heat output, it would kinda make any comparision between two chips void. i want an average of like.. 50 different chips :banana:

(ps, sorry for being so difficult. it's in my nature to disagree :toast: )

Hey no problem man I may be jumping to conclusions.

04-12-2005, 07:41 PM
same with me. or i could be way off base with my assumptions on how amd is making their chips.. though i've thought about it for a long time, and what i stated before is about the conclusion i've come to, and i'm not about to change my mind until i see some solid evidence ;)

though, i guess time will tell on how turion really does oc

cores are more durable than most people make them out to be. just don't do anything stupid with it. i've been running my cpu with the core looking like this since late december. it's been through quite a few remounts and i move the case around a bit and nothing bad has happened yet ;)

Holy crap. Did your Zalman cause that?

I accidentally took a tiny chunk off the core of my old desktop 2800+. The chip still worked, but it did hurt overclockability.

nope. sandpaper did. if you ever lap your core, don't do it too much :slap:

soi = less leakage
ss = faster transistors = higher clockspeed :)

im wanting a turion, if the die doesnt crack it will be easier to aim small evaps onto cause u dont need to get it perfect alignment
when they come out if ive gpot cash i can do the first -40 tests

yup, it's my 24/7 rig

and thanks for the correction. i did a bit of research, and it seems that DSL increased and decreases leakage, depending on whether the transisor is being stretched or compressed.

one thing i would like to bring up though.. note in the roadmap (http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_608,00.html), under the turion, replacing the mobile clawhammers is Newark. for a long time, i was thinking that Newark would be included with Turion, the Lancaster being the extra low voltage, 512kb parts, while Newark would be the slightly higher wattage, 1mb parts.
now that everything has fallen into place, and Newark still isn't claimed for anything, i'm trying to figure out what will happen to it.
perhaps we will see a 50-55w 90nm DTR part that will have better compatibility that is based on thermally binned san diegos, just like the DTR's and mobiles of before that were thermally binned clawhammers?

if anyone has any ideas, feel free to chip in :toast:

That would be awesome. Some of the current 3400+ DTR Clawhammers clock like a dream!

that's my thought.

and my problem is... my birthday is in the end of may. i want to upgrade my clawhammer that has a terrible memory controller and can only clock to 2.3ghz before needing a terrible amount of voltage.

so, i either get a 3400+ mobile, or see what newark will really be and try to be one of the first and evangelize it's awesomeness :D

ozzi? do you have magical powers? amd announced the 3700 mobile today. http://www.amd.com/us-en/Corporate/VirtualPressRoom/0,,51_104_543~96667,00.html

wouldn't seem like too big of a deal but the feature model number comparison now shows the 3000,3200,3400, and 3700 on 90nm process and "3DNow!â„¢ Professional technology, SSE2, SSE3".

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_10220_10221^10222,00.html

so it seems as if an E stepping regular s754 mobile 90nm (12x multiplier :) 1mb cache) has just happened. *

* this was just announced so avaiability won't be for a long time. (turion was announced on march 10th and we still can't find them)


perhaps we will see a 50-55w 90nm DTR part that will have better compatibility that is based on thermally binned san diegos, just like the DTR's and mobiles of before that were thermally binned clawhammers?

if anyone has any ideas, feel free to chip in :toast:

double post, i know.. BUT

the 3700+ that came out isn't DTR. that's been around for a while.
it's a real mobile A64
check the pricing

before, the mobile line only went to 3400+ :toast:

So it's a 62w mobile?

I wonder if it operates at a lower voltage than desktop San Diegos. AMD could probably pull off the 62w power rating at 1.4v (or 1.35v, whatever the rev. E desktop chips are).

ozzimark
04-14-2005, 11:58 AM
i'm not sure. seeing as the mobile clawhammers were 27w lower (about 30%) than the normal destops.. that's where i get my 50-55w guess from before
(70% of 67 is actually 47, but i doubt it would go that low.. mostly because i think the voltage will only drop .05v instead of the .1v before)
