Ouch if true:

180 watts under load for the high end 6 core sandy bridge E chips, with intel recomending that PSU makers make their PSU's deliver at least 23 amps on the secondary 12volt rail dedicated to the CPU...I wonder how high it can get once overclocked....Yikes.


Ivy bridge with it's 22nm finfet process and 30% power savings over the 32nm process sounds rather nice right about now, and some here actually wanted an 8 core version Sandy bridge E while still on the 32nm process....
