Do the optimization made less power consumption on computers?When long calculation can be done in a day instead of the week it is obviously yes, but what with game code when you optimize the main loop (for example 5 times) It will make processor load 5 times lower and will it make it cooler?
Personaly I take a power consumption of my machine into a heavy account (in practise more than computation power) because it cost money and is quite noticeable (my own old machine + monitor takes for example I think tess than 100W maybe even 50W, it seems that it consume less than my 14' tv set - and I would not want to buy a 400W monster or something)
It seem that worse than the CPU is GPU, Is it? Do the GPU code optymisation techniques lower the GPU energy consumption noticeable?
