Intel's problem with power is that no review site shows real power measurements with each result, but only show TDP setting used or even worse, max power draw under stress test.
The 13900t can run at 35W for the whole CPU.
The problem isn't the power, the problem is that nobody knows how much power you need for any performance level since you only get a TDP rating and the actual power draw can be much lower or also much higher than that.
They need to show real power draw for each result they get.
