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.
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!
