    122123Besides the CPU, another item that generates significant heat is the PCIe switch (PLX PEX860x) used on some of the Ventana models (GW520x, GW53xx, GW54xx, GW552x). The typical power usage is appx 1.35W up to a max of appx 2.35W (max being 85% traffic, Gen 1 operation). The switch does support PCIExpress Active State Power Management (ASPM) and also will power down unused SerDes lanes automatically to reduce power when possible.
