I found this a very interesting read, as I always try to get more for less (power or money) with my gear. After reading it I am very surprised Intel went with 241watts for the 12900k, as it seems to present much better with the power limit lower.

Just got on my PC, so decided to put a couple graphs for those that don't want to go through all the work of clicking a link.

yeh, the situation flipped and now Intel needs to be a power hog to keep up with AMD when it was AMD that had to be a power hog and barely didn't really keep up with Intel, LoL!
