Numbers? I think "running circles" is unlikely.

Another picture which shows a different result from yours.
Winchester3000+ 40.8 W
Comment on the test:
In other words, the data given below doesn?t take into account the
performance index of the CPU power converter that is why you may find
these numbers a little bit higher than the actual processor power
consumption values (about 10%).
something about the load:
case of maximum CPU workload created by the S&M utility
though i don't know this S&M utility
here someone also modified his PSU for measure
Winchester 3000+ 1.4V max Watt: 30.3W
you can find the information you seek easyily
something i want to copy here:
I generated the load using a BurnK7 program. The reason for this was
that it generated the highest load of the programs that I could easily
take with me to other peoples? computers. Some people have suggested
Prime95 for generating a load, but would be very surprised if it made
the CPU to consume any more than BurnK7 does. BurnK7 is a part of
BurnCPU package I got from the net. BurnP6 didn not produce as high a
result, but was very close.
It is an interesting excercise to compare these numbers to published TDP
figures. P4E and Palomino chips seem to come extremely close to their
advertised TDP figures while K8 actually consume WAY below their
advertised TDP. It seems as if the manufacturers sell CPU-s that consume
the same amount as their advertised TDP only when they are in deep
trouble as far as power consumption goes. AMD was in their deepest
trouble in Athlon Thunderbird 1.4GHz and Palomino era. Intel now.
to backup my claims about AMDs TDP and Intel TDP at the moment.
