Power and Heat


Power and Heat Overview

Rocket Lake performs well in our power draw chart however it still suffers when compared to AMD Ryzen 5 5600X. It is crystal clear this problem can be laid at the door of Intel being stuck on 14nm but that is no solace to the customer who can see Intel demanding more power than AMD while delivering less performance. On the bright side it is clear that Intel’s packaging is working well as Core i5-11600K runs icy cool, even when it is under sustained load.
