if you are dealing with a 30w baseline, reducing it by 10-15w is extremely impressive and even 0.5w can be noticable, but if you are taking about a 300w baseline 10-15w is barely noticable and 0.5w probably doesn't matter to much of anyone.
What kind of impression are you looking for? It seems to me that the baseline is useless. 10-15w saves the same amount of money and the same amount of CO2 regardless of the baseline.
Should we also ask how much the room lights draw? Because if there's 300 watts of lighting, a 10-15w savings is barely noticeable even if it's half of what the GPU formerly used.
