Xserve (Early 2008): Power consumption and thermal output (BTU) information

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Learn power consumption and thermal output information for Xserve (Early 2008) running Mac OS X 10.5.

Notes

  • Power Consumption data in watts (W) is measured from the wall power source and includes all power supply and system losses. Additional correction is not needed.
  • CPU Max is defined as running a compute-intensive test application that maximizes processor usage and therefore power consumption.
  • Disk Max is defined as running a test application that generates continuous input/output to a RAID set consisting of all internal disks in the system.
  • These numbers reflect a 23 Celsius (73.4 Farenheit) ambient temperature running environment. Increased ambient temperatures require faster fan speeds which increase power consumption. At 35 C (95 F), 60 W should be added to reflect increased power consumption.
  • These numbers reflect no PCI cards installed.
