    Default Engadget benchmarking AppleTV with OSX

    Engadget recently benchmarked a AppleTV running OSX 10.4.9 with our kernel. The result are quite intresting and can still keep up with some Hackint0sh result I saw. Even the little box has only 256mb ram and 1 GHz it looks quite fine with 50 points.

    Interesting link, a $300 mid-range Mac Mini "replacement" without good 3D support would still be useful for simple tasks the average joe might engage in. I wouldn't be surprised if someone does, and even make it faster. 50points is pretty good for its hardware, even faster than some hacks.

    Makes it even more interesting

    Great work semthex, it's simply amazing what you can do.

    Now the most interesting question (for me) is: how much power does this nice little machine actually draw? With a Pentium M ULV and 2.5" HD, this could be a very appealing small home server, provided that it doesn't consume more than 15W when idle and less than say 40W under maximum load.

    ...now that you mention how low its power draw is, this seems like a good alternative for a download box! If it has a 15W/40W power draw, running it only for a few months will certainly save me over $300 on electricity bills even if it's on 24/7 compared to my power-hog rig... And has more functionality than a Bittorrent-NAS enclosure...

    More reason to mod one... oh the temptation of new hardware...

    I don't know how much power it uses when running OS X but an Apple TV out of the box will use around 20W while streaming from a wireless source and around 15W in standby.

    Seems that somebody out there already measured the power usage.
    Not bad, max 20W
