Retail i9-12900K processor shown with an all P-Core Overclock of 5.2 GHz

This setup reportedly drew 330 watts of power.

330 Watts for just the cpu... we gonna be needing 800 or 1000 watts power supplies again paired with anything higher then a 3070.

Crazy world where for the longest time everyone was trying to limit the power draw and make things efficient, and here we are right back to the start again.
Rig: Cpu: AMD R7 3700X. Mobo: Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 wifi. Ram: Gskill Royal Silver 3200mhz cl16: Gpu: Msi RTX2070 Armor. Asus Xonar STX II.

It's a crazy amount of power for a CPU imho thats as much as my 6800XT uses under full load when overclocked, personally i prefer 65watt chips that when oc'd maybe eat double.

I do feel however that the reason they wanted to save power wasn't to use less but gain more performance for the same power.

I got a 850PSU not as my system needed it but so it's never at full load a chip like this would make that much harder.

Oh and Intel I haven't forgotten your glue comments must be a very sticky cpu
