Intel Core i9-10980XE - Power Consumption Tests

When it comes to power consumption, there are a few things we should take note of. First of all, Intel has focused on efficiency for several years but as we have seen, they are starting to loose rapidly at this front. The Intel Core-X processors are based on a revised 14nm process while the competition has moved to 7nm.

All Intel Core-X "Cascade Lake-X" chips are rated at 165W. Intel states that the higher TDP not only compensates for higher frequencies but should also provide stable overclocking performance. The latter was true in our testing but we saw higher figures when we ran overclocking. Regardless, you can see the entire system power consumption numbers in the chart below:
