    I am sorry, but you are wrong. This is Intel themselves: "Because TDP is a worst case value when running a “worst case” application, most processors, when running a more “typical” workload, will dissipate power that is less than the rated TDP value; how much less will depend on the application and the specific part being tested. This is true not only for the processor, but for every electrical component in a server."

    https://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/white-paper/resources-xeon-measuring-processor-power-paper.pdf

    The whitepaper also specifically states that AMD also sees it that way: "“TDP. Thermal Design Power. The thermal design power is the maximum power a processor can draw for a thermally significant period while running commercially useful software. The constraining conditions for TDP are specified in the notes in the thermal and power tables.”"

    Found this YiuTube clip of a guy who received his 9570. He opened it up and we can see the internals.

    I'm curious what people's thoughts are on thermals based on what they see and how the 9570 compares to the last generation.

    Must be approximately the same thermal results.
    Power users need to be ready to re-paste this, add thermal pads or even use some liquid metal.

    9570 (i7) performance was terrible out of the box. It recorded 79,258 on ROG BenchMark in the first video. (i7 8750H, 1050Ti)

    Best score I recorded with a 9550 (i5) was 78,939, of course with thermal "fixes" (i5 6300HQ, 960m).

    That is funny. My 9575 gets 85,206 and that was before undervolting and such. I also like how he says thermals are good even though the realbench benchmark is not very stressful. If he said that while running the realbench stress test then I would be impressed.

    I just got my 9570 i9 fully maxed out today. I'll upload some benchmarks and pics once I get to test it out the next few days.

    If I have to do all of that just for a stable machine, I'm going to pass.

    Is this a fair prediction for next year?

    XPS 9585: Whiskey Lake-G with Vega/Navi M
    XPS 9580: Cannon Lake-H with GTX 1150

    I would love either of those.
