Power consumption difference - CSS326 / CRS326

Sat Aug 10, 2019 10:31 pm


I'm deciding between the switch models CSS326 and CRS326, which seem to have an identical hardware (except routing functionality and dual boot).
After checking both datasheets, I've seen that there the power consumption seems to be different.

CSS326 - 19W max power consumption:
CRS326 - 24W max power consumption:

Can someone confirm that the CRS model drains more power?
How comes that? Are there more hardware differences between both models?

Best regards

Edit: Sure, the datasheet tells you the maximum usage. Probably they don't differ by 5W in real.
Still, I'd like to know if CRS drains more power. :)

Hey have an identical hardware...
This is NOT the case, switch chip are different and with different capabilities: nand, ram, cpu
