Pretty much. During Sandy/Ivy/Etc times it was Intel that intentionally limited power consumption of its chips because their advantage was huge. Intel was great, I could use a picopsu with a cheap board to run their fastest sku without worrying of frying my board. Now things have turned around. Now I have to think, count and tinker!But if that is the case, why is Intel shooting straight for 250W PL2? Is that what they have to do to beat AMD in some benchmarks?
