Based on what we've seen with Willow Cove and 10SF, Intel seems to be aiming for high clocks. I don't see how people can judge SPR as a power hog based on TDP alone, not when we've already seen TGL-H managing a near-linear efficiency curve as the 8-core die uses 80W+ all by itself.Still smaller by a margin. As for a power consumption, who knows how Golden Cove is clocked.
Having such low efficiency to start is not good at all, but being able to catch up in efficiency at higher power levels means they may actually seek those high performance levels to improve their figures relative to the competition. As far as I can tell, high performnce levels also play well with the inclusion with HBM on the package.
