Power Consumption

Power consumption is something that you should be aware of with regards to processors as someone is going to be paying the electric bill. The AMD Ryzen 2000 series ranges between 65W and 250W TDP, which is a very wide power range.

  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX – 250W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X – 180W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700X – 105W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700 – 65W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600X –  95W TDP
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600 – 65W TDP
  • Intel Core i9-7960X – 165W TDP
  • Intel Core i9-9900K – 95W TDP
  • Intel Core i7-8700K – 95W TDP

The Intel Core i9-9900K processor might be a 95W TDP processor like the 8700K, but it does use a little more power at load. Then again we tested the 8700K on a Z370 platform that had less features than the Z390 platform used on the 9900K.

Let’s take a look at overclocking and see how fast this 8-core, 16-thread processor will go!
