    Do we need to re-wire the whole house for the 13th generation of Intel processors I wonder...

    So that's still only 51 watt compared to my current 11700 which uses only 40 watt during gaming.

    Not bad.

    The power cable of a next gen Intel PC looks something like this:

    You play Tetris or pacman? Because it uses 90-130W normally on gaming at 1080p.

    Nah, ~40-50W was for 10 series, Rocket Lake uses at least 80W without v-sync while doing the same thing with ~10% more fps. Really dumb architecture.

    peak power draw difference can be even bigger

    good grief
    pass on this
    i may be tempted to get a rkl-s next year if it goes on sale like 10th gen and pcie4 drives (the good ones) drop from 250eur for 1tb
    adl-s will be ridiculously expensive and power hungry like the devil.

    well,you'd never buy intel anyway,even at twice as good value.
    all i hope for is 11th gen dropping as low as 10th at some point.they're a waste of silicon indeed,but name a price low enough and they'll be a great buy.

    Its not true. I had Sandy-E 3930k before i went to amd again.

    was there really any other option ? not really.
    and frankly,for gaming 3930k->2700x is a sidegrade at best.

    I have a Non-K, playing Fortnite @ 1200p max settings.

    I do cap at 60 FPS, cuz i only have a 60 Hz monitor.

    HWInfo64 shows 40-45 watt max during gaming.

    Generally it was an upgrade a big one even in gaming. We have fond memories of sandy bridge but its old and slow for todays standards.

    8700k is 13% faster than 2700X in 1080p and 7% in 1440p
    Are you seriously saying 3930k is up there lol

    Suddenly, the little cores make a lot more sense. And this is coming from someone who was looking forward to them regardless.

    Back then, the Phenom II x6 was a compelling product if you cared about multi-threaded performance.

    Looks alright to me considering the max requirements are for a 16/24 CPU and better IGPU.
    I actually expect it to consume less than 11k in real tasks due to better core management.

    Or I can just start screaming like a parrot just to make a fuss.

    what for ?

    8700k running at stock 4300mhz with 3200 memory is nothing special by today's standards,13% slower than that is gonna be like 30-40% slower than current upper mid range (300-400eur cpus)
    do I think 3930k (oc'd with qc ram) can get there ? yes. it's not a high bar really to get close to 2700x in games.

    at 60hz you are never at max load with any cpu of the last 4 years.

    Im sorry but the title is highly misleading!
    As you might know Power=Voltage times Current.
    What is listed here are Power and Current, but no Voltage.
    Judging by the fact that ALD-S is 10nm, one should assume lower voltages compared to the 14nm RKL-S, hence for the same wattage, the current has to rise.
    One could only assume higher power, if the voltage would be known and identical.
