The following variables can be completed

die_size_per_core and core_units

if die_size and core_units are given :

\[ \text{die_size_per_core} = \frac{\text{die_size}}{\text{core_units}}\]

Otherwise, if family or/and core_units are given, die_size_per_core can be retrieved from a fuzzy matching on our cpu repository. If several cpu matches the given family and/or core_units the maximizing value is given (in terms of impacts).

If no cpu is found either because the cpu is unknown or not enough data have been given by the user the default data are used.

model_range and family

if name is given, model_range and family can be retrieved from a fuzzy matching on our cpu name repository.

Manufacture impact

For one CPU the manufacture impact is:

\[ \text{CPU}_\text{manufacture}^\text{criteria} = (\text{CPU}_{\text{core_units}} * \text{CPU}_{\text{die_size_per_core}} + 0.491 ) * \text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_die}^\text{criteria} + \text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_base}^\text{criteria} \]


Constant Units Value
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_die}^{\text{gwp}}\) kgCO2eq/cm2 1.97
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_die}^{\text{adp}}\) kgSbeq/cm2 5.80E-07
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_die}^{\text{pe}}\) MJ/cm2 26.50
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_base}^{\text{gwp}}\) kgCO2eq 9.14
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_base}^{\text{adp}}\) kgSbeq 2.04E-02
\(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture_base}^{\text{pe}}\) MJ 156.00

Note: If there are more than 1 CPU we multiply \(\text{CPU}_\text{manufacture}^\text{criteria}\) by the number of CPU given in units.

Usage impact

Both power consumption and consumption profile are implemented.

Consumption profile

The CPU consumption profile is of the form : consumption_profile(workload) = a*ln(b+(workload*c))+d

Determining the parameters

From model range

If model_range is given or is completed from the cpu_name, we use the averaged parameter for the specific model range.

By default, we use the consumption profile of Intel Xeon Platinum


Model adaptation from punctual measurement

In case punctual power measurement (load;power_consumption) are given by a user, we adapt the selected consumption profile to match the given point.


Model adaptation from TDP

If the TDP is given we use the average power consumption per unit of TDP (given by TEADS) multiplied by the given TDP as power measurement and compute a model adaptation as describe above.
