CPU Power Consumption Tests

The Intel Alder Lake CPUs feature the brand new hybrid architecture approach composed of Golden Cove and Gracemont cores. The chip also relies on a brand new 10nm Enhanced SuperFin process node which delivers up to 4.4 GHz on the Core i5-12400 CPU. The faster clocks should lead to more power consumption but Intel is also touting increased efficiency per watt thanks to the overall performance increases we get this generation.
