How much electricity does one of these consume compared to a typical PC?
From the specs, it would appear to be no higher than a lower end AMD eight core system (less than a high end AMD cpu).
Intel hardware would offer a power advantage, but if we were really focused solely on power draw there are lower draw PPCs.
In terms of power vs performance, Power 8 actually looks pretty good.
Now Talos' performance per dollar ratio?
Not so good.
