Damn people, 380W is not average, but some peak value achieved for a second or so.400 Watts? Then how is it able to run 25% cooler than a 3900x which only consumes up to 144 watts? Surely, the laws of physics do apply to the 10900k?
The Cometlake chips with soldered heatspreader are supposed to have an extra-thin layer or something. That'll help with heat.the average CPU power consumption came in at 124 Watts... Right in line with Intel's marketing of a 125 Watt TDP rating. But at least according to the RAPL framework reporting based upon the Intel CPU metrics recorded, the actual peak power consumption of the CPU went as high as 380 Watts in extreme cases.
